TGIF For This Week

This weeks theme at Altered Designs was Asian and this scene always looks so peaceful to me.

Maypole Dance

May ATC Lottery for one of my groups was Celebrations in the month of May. The first of May they celebrate the coming of spring and fertility by crowning the Queen of the May and also by dancing the Maypole Dance. I just couldn't resist this lovely silhouette image of children dancing the Maypole. Hope you enjoy and comments are always welcome.

TGIF at Altered Designs

This past weeks TGIF theme was Old Photo. So I used a photograph of my Grandmother as a child of about age 7 or 8 taken when she lived in Holland. She and my Grandfather moved to Canada in 1925 when my father was about 2 years old.

New Art to Share

Some of my latest pieces done for a group mingle themed - birds. This is the first art I've done in quite awhile. Enjoy

An Anniversary Wish

I haven't been very arty over the last little bit but hope to get back to some routine now that hubby is back to work.
I did manage to play with a new set of Spellbinders dies and their Flowers Impressibilities to create this card for my friend's anniversary. The butterflies are done with Dazzlers (similar to Peel Offs) which have the marks for piercing to do the stitching. You can click on the image to view larger.
