NEW CHALLENGES TODAY! Try one!


Hey everyone,
I wanted to play this morning and decided to look for some challenges and came across these at ABC and Color Throw Down. Why not try one yourself! Here I used DSP Baja Breeze and centered the humming bird in the center of the window pane and darkened him up. I then stamped the Flowers For All Seasons stamp onto DSP and cut it out and adhered the flower pot to a second image. I finished it by watercoloring the flowers, and cut everythoing out and adhered it to the window sill. You can use half of the Top Note Die for a window shade and add some ribbon for the tape binding. A few buttons and you are good to go! I made the edging using my label punch! Enjoy~Donna

That is amazing you made this little window through which to see the world...so lovely, especially the straps to suggest the window shade...very nice!

Found you via Nicole Anderson's Anderson Arts blog, by the way.

TERMITES? Oh my...bad deal.

Well, Thumbalina made it through the night - I was very surprised AND she opened her eyes today! :D

So, we've made an agreement on how long we'll keep her and then we have to turn her back out into the field so she can find some friends. So we're headed to get some food for her tonight.

Don't I get the 'mother of the year award' for even ALLOWING her to keep it? LOL
