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....

Oh, Dianne, these are beautiful as usual. YOU are beautiful too, actually amazing. I cannot believe you are creating with all you've been through. Take care of yourself, friend. Enjoy your time with friends. I agree with Julie Ann (above comment), laughter is the very best medicine...and love.

Sublime tags, with that sumptuous border of lace and how I love those bows and Bravo to you for the wonderful recycling taking place for your tags.

You have been in my prayers. I had to laugh that while you were in the hospital you were thinking of your tags. I must say it must be interesting around your house. I love your end results and feel like I learn something each time I read your blog.(I have visions of our yellow lab galloping over your paper drying on the floor! Keep getting better...hugs and love to you

Hope you continue to improve! I love your tags and what a journey to get to the end product! I had to smile at the paper laid out on the floor to dry!

Have been thinking about you a lot, and so happy to see you make such a wonderful return here - and so soon. I hope you are taking good care of yourself... the laughter and fun and crafting sounds like a wonderful medical program!!

These tags are just gorgeous - I love that they started with home-waxed paper! - and the party sounds like great fun - but please don't work too hard in the kitchen, will you?!

Much love,
Alison xx

Oh, my sweet Dianne! I was sitting here feverishly making cards and you popped into my head plain as day. "What's happened to my little friend?" I wondered, "It's been a while since I've heard from her."

So I came right over and stepped inside and was shocked and saddened to hear that you had had a heart attack and had to go to hell, er I mean, the hospital. Bummer, dude!

I am, however, so relieved to hear that a stint is all you needed. It sounds like you have bounced right back but, please, do take care of yourself. I will add you to my prayers.

Your project photos were so intriguing and inspiring and the final product is sensational!!

Take care! Biggest hugs! Darnell
