I had the most fun with her! She looked like a SECRET PARTIER to me! Heheheh, so the picture says.......P,A,R,T, WHY? Because I gotta!!!! This was fun to do! I can imagine her sneaking a cigar behind the guys backs she got a cigar band on here as well! Live strong ladies!!!!!!

Ohhhhh, these have been such a blast! I worked my little heart out on these! Tried to really get a feeling for these "ladies". The one on the right says.....May my heart always be open to the little birds, who are the secrets of the living. This was sweet to work on and I hope that the card brings a sense of calm, because that is what I felt when I looked at her face! :0)

This quote says, "All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother!" I love the thought! I used cream, gold, burgandy, and some stamping with white paint and then overstamped with black and also some burgandy! I added wings, flowers, her neckpiece is a an old watch piece and a rhinestone and there is a beaded hanger at the top with a tassel and chandellier crystal on the side!

I joined a swap that a friend Christine is having! We have to alter three cabinet cards! Have you seen them? They are really cool! A vintage actual photo mounted on a hard cardboard from the photography very cool! I was really stumped at first!! Christine gave an awesome site to go it is.
You can see an altered cabinet card there and read all about it! FUN stuff! I got my three cards, sanded them and sort of had a talk with the ladies in the photos, and I have a general layout for them! Here it is in the beginning stages! I will show you more as I get them going! Remember, this is just the beginning!

Fabric ATCs for a Swap!

These are some fabric atcs for a 5 for 5 swap. I think this little girl is most adorable!She is one of my favorites for items. There is fabric, french paper print, fibers and the twill with family ties printed on it!

One more swap to share with you while I am stuck at home and not working, until my doctors appointment tomorrow for my fractured ankle! :( This is a teal and black themed 4x4 for a yahoo group swap too! Inspired by Ruth Rae(a friend and great artist).....I have created these using handmade paper, black embossed paper and transparencies backed with some vintage writing paper. I LOVE these little girls! They make me smile! :0)
Here are some witches atcs for a swap that I am in with a yahoo group! They are fun and I got this idea from a friend......thanks Heather! :) These old vintage women can look pretty crabby can't they? We gave her some blush and lip really didn't help though! Hehehehe!
