New Things

Look what I have hanging in the window of my studio. This sweet little birdie is from Emilie Friday's etsy shop. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and thought he/she would look pretty nifty hanging in front of my desk while I create. I love her use of felted wool, which is something I have on my "Things to Try Someday" list.- Picture courtesy of Emilie Friday -

Here's a better photo of it taken by Emilie. It is so full of whimsey.....It just makes me smile!

The card pictured above I made for my cousin, whose darling little Yorkshire Terrier Lily passed away last week. For such a tiny dog, she had a heart as big as the sky and she really helped my cousin through some rough times. I know all you pet lovers out there know what I mean.
The image on the card is actually from an American Greetings birthday card that I planned to give my cousin on her birthday in April. Didn't think that would be such a good idea not, so I repurposed the image onto a new card with paper lace, glitter and leftover scraps from the wedding invitations I am making. Inside the greeting says,
"May you find comfort in your loving memories."

Be watching here for pics of the cards I received in Heather's Greeting Card Swap. They really are beautiful and I can't wait to share them with you.
