Hello my Lovelies only one day left, all my angels
are finished
My DS Sue gave me these 4 beautiful tassels, they were a
soft blue, the got sun bleached, so have a lovely row of grey
around them, I think they look kool like this.
I cut out 2 triangles of lace,  for the wings, I wanted them to be stiffer, I took some ribbon with wire in it, folded it in half glued
it together, glued it to the lace, took the other side and twisted it
to form the wing, glued them on the back.

Added some folded lace for the cape, glued a twisted ribbon
 around the throat.

I used a circle for the Halo added some stickles to make them
Now I just have to finish a hhmm few tags to make,
eeks have to get on that sewing machine, I have all of
tomorrow to finish, big fun :O)..
Thanks very much for visiting, I wish you all a wonderful , love, laughter filled holiday season, see you all in the new year, I so looking forward to visiting you all, I missed you batches, I'm blessed to have your wonderful support, you all enrich my life so much.

Hello my lovelies finally got my set of Angels for
my niece's and nephews, 'I've made them a lot of Christmas
ornaments hanging in their trees.

I cut up piece's of ribbon knotted it for their hands and
glued them in the back. Cut up lace in a large triangle,
rolled the small side, glued it to the back, did the same on
the other side and hot glued a white circle to finish it off.
glued a gold ring for the halo,I have sprayed the wings with hairspray to make them stiff, hope this works.
I have 4 larger ones to make today and hope to get them posted before Christmas, my dear friend Jan has invited my self and
 my friend Sheila for Christmas dinner, so I'll be at my desk till then.
I wish a magical Christmas, abundant and joyous in every way to your heart's desire for everyone.

Hello my Lovelies, I've been busy at my desk,
trying to get all the Christmas stuff done.
My friend Jan's BD is today so I made her one of my
tag, she is fairy crazy, even has a room just for them:O).
This is the front is above.

This is the back of the holder..

The inside, I used one of the gorgeous peacock tissues
from my Cuz Julie Ann, then the sentiment..
I dyed the seam binding and stamped on it..

The other side more fairy's..

I also made her a book mark, getting to use
my new favorite stamp from Julia Ann,
Added a few embellishments..
The back side below, I looooove this stamp..

I've made 6 angels out of tassels and will post these another day.
It's a lovely rainy day here...
Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you all having a wonderful day..

and does some wonderful mixed media art, she has made 100
cards, she created all the trees from her gelli plate then die cut

paper on a card, I asked where you can get it and she kindly sent
me a stack of them, they are fabulous to stamp on, thank you my sweet friend..

Also my lovely friend Miss Bibiana sent a gorgeous tag with
a wooden  snowflake, which I will use as a stencil..

I wanted to thank all of you wonderful woman who
stopped by to leave me some LOVE, nothing helps
healing faster then that, love you all too..

I thought about my tags while I was in the hospital, I knew
I didn't like the blue file folders I had cut...
My sister has given me lots, like a box of brown pkg. paper.
I painted them with floor wax we get here in Canada, I had mine sitting in my cupboard for a few years, It's still good.

I tore them into 12in. x 12in. , I had to use my floor to dry them

Tore them to 6in. x 6in., added gathered twig to the edges,
curled the edges..

Stamped the sentiment on strips I tore on my
rusted material..

The brown paper is quite thin, I had these label sheets
edged them with the twig ( love it ) and splashed it with water.  

I attached the label to the back, added some ribbon between.
Punched it with my embossed name..
Part two below, hopefully :O)..

I've sewn the lace around, I do admit I'm not a seamstress,
it's that having to re-thread it a hundred time, my DS Sandy
who is a seamstress gave me a few tips, hoping they work..

On Saturday, my best-est Buddies Tonniece and Sheila,
came by and we had a crafting day and tons of grrrreat
medicine, laughter:):)..
Tonniece made me the bows for the tags..

I'm giving one of the lovely Ladies from swimming one of
my tags, she is a great supporter of my art and always visits
my blog, so this is what they look like, the ones going in the
post won't have all the embellishments, sorry won't fit in
the slot..
The party is tomorrow, I'm baking cinnamon rolls, out of pie
crust, my Mom always made them with left over dough.
Also some bacon and cheese one's for those of us who can't
have sugar.. It will be wonderful to see the lovely Ladies and
have some good laughs..
Thanks so much so much for visiting, your in my thoughts and heart....

Hello my Lovelies, hopping by for a wee snoop, we'll
be thanking our special Miss Julia @ for that pleasure.
Mine is short and sweet again, I took this pic on Sun.
It's late Wed evening and it still looks like this....
My tag's I'm working on, stamped the linen with my image
and a tiny surprise stamp, edged all 48 of them, cut out
the file folders, not sure If I like them, so I might look for
something else to use, added some podge with crystal
glitter, I 'm going to stamp the sentiment on my rusted material.
I'm even going to dust off my sewing machine, yes I said my
 sewing machine LOL and sew them together.
I have been out, had lots of company so that's why it still looks the
same, I HAVE to finish the ones going over the pond, hopefully
they will arrive on time..
I'm off to water fit, and it will probably take me till the weekend
to visit everyone, I promise to visit any how drop in my nest..
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful creative week..

Hello my Lovelies stop in to show a pair of earrings
a Lady from water fit had, they were for pierced earring
and asked if I could make then into clip ons..
I said I didn't think so but I would try..

I had a pair I thought would match and would try it.
The kind of went with Betty Boop..

Then I remember I had that material pink and silver.
Then they would be perfect, so I cover them with it..

Here they are done, I love how they turned out, but it was
so hard on my hands, I will tell them, no more jewelry work
for me, I'm just not good with tool :O)...
Thanks for visiting, I have to go to my friend funeral
today, so will be back when I can..
I hope you all have a wonderful creative day..
