For My Daughter

I think I can safely post this.  It's a birthday card I made for my oldest daughter Cathy.  I'll be giving it to her tomorrow.  This was fun to make.  I cut the little flowers out by hand (thank heavens for the great scissors Amanda got me, they're so sharp and precise.  Then I arranged them in the little trunk and did a little altering of the picture of the sweet lady.  My girls love handmade things and usually make them for me.  I hope she'll like this.

Catchall Tin

I love this little girl and she shows up on a lot of things I made.  This is a larger tin that I covered with a black paper napkin and decoupaged and then put images on it.  Diane

Note Holder

It probably won't take you long to figure out what this was.  You're right... a Spam can.  Just the right size for little notes or little things you pick up.  I got the khaki Red Heart 100% cotton yarn at the Salvation Army for 25cents and I've used it on a lot of tags and tied Christmas gifts with it.  It's a perfect rugged looking color that's just the look I want. What a bargain.  The next time I cover a can like this I think I'll use a pretty tissue paper so it will mold to the can easier.                                      Diane

This was interesting.  The background is red.  But when I drew white lines on it to look like plaid or checks, it really made it look pink.  I listed it on Etsy along with a few other Valentine tags.  My art room is in a mess, I did some rearranging.  It won't take me long to get it back together, it's good to shake it up once in a while, it gives me an entirely different outlook.  I think Rascal enjoys it too.  He found a comfortable spot out of the way and watched to see what I was going to do next.

Pink Tag

This little angel went perfectly on the tag which I made the sides in swirls and curves.  She does look a little sad but I suppose angels are really, when they look at us and wish they could help us be better.  Diane
