Memory Box Dies are so Cute!

Using my Ebosser and Memory Box Dies
makes these black and white cards stand out.
Now who wouldn't want one of these beauties?
Oh, and a little glitter doesn't hurt either...
(Glitter doesn't photograph nicely.)

Rainberry Bay Library Knit Wits Accept Award from Chili's

Here I am at Chili's in Lake Worth, FL, accepting an award from Chili's Grill & Bar and Little Smiles on behalf of the Rainberry Bay Library Knit Wits.  We help to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and distribute hats and blankets to Little Smiles.  We are a group of very talented women who give of their time to try to make kids happy.  Chili's sponsored a luncheon for us and gave us gift bags of yarn, candy, gift certificates to Chili's, etc.  Tony Viola, Area Director of Chili's, couldn't have been nicer and so appreciative of our knitting dedication.  Joshua Daniel, Program Manager and Fundraising Director of Little Smiles, was so grateful for all our time and energy we put into each and every hand-knit item that goes to the kids.  My hat is off to all the ladies that give of themselves in each and every item they knit.  Isn't it time you learned how to knit?

Some of my card-making friends and I got together to be
part of the exhibit...Paper as Art.
We created altered art cards.
We had a fabulous time.  
Creating cards is the best way to showcase your talents.
Paper is my passion!

Altered Art Never Looked so Good!

You either like it or you don't.
Background comes from an old
home improvement magazine dating back to 1987.
Some stickers, some rubber stamping, wooden cello (see it?),
matted pictures from books and magazines
 and a rhinestone or two!
It's altered art, steampunk, a little vintage,
and a little Victorian.
What do you think?
