Get Well Card

Here is a Get Well card I made for my DH's aunt.  Nothing super fancy just a nice sweet card that I think she will like!
That bunny is soooo cute!

Making cards is fun!

 I haven't made any cards for awhile and then decided I wanted to make one for one of my nephews' birthday.  Which then led to making one for his brother and sister too since I had not made them a card for their past birthdays and hope they don't mind getting them now!  
They were fun to make and I have to say I am pretty proud of the tree on the 2nd card!  It is made from Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine paper and I just drew and cut out a tree shape and then crumpled it up!  So easy and yet effective!  
 Thanks for visiting and looking!

Journal Pages

 Some more journal pages that I have done recently.  I have taken apart a coil-bound journal that has beautiful watercolor/mixed media pages so I can try out working on loose pages.  I have the covers and the wire coil tucked away so that I can put it all back together at the end.  It is nice to work on the pages free from the book but on the other hand I do enjoy having them bound together so I can flip thru and see my progress as I am working on the journal.  I will continue to work on both this loose page journal and my bound journals and see if I gravitate towards one more than the other.

Princess Lollipop

I have finished the teeny tiny painting (2"x2") for my friend's dollhouse!  It is a little picture of her sweet little dog Suzy.  One of her nicknames is Princess Lollipop, so of course a princess needs a crown, right?  And a little plaque with her name.  And some gold leaf too!  
And of course a collar made of jewels!  It's probably a good thing this canvas was so little or who knows what else I may have added!
