Spring flowers

Hey again:  When it rains I play in my craft room.  Actually I do dishes, pick up, sweep, cook (well some meals) and then I craft.  Which is normally late at night.  I made this card for 2 Simon Says Challenges.  There is the Simon Says Monday Challenge which is-April showers bring may flowers ; and for Simon says Wednesday Challenge- Lets do polka dots.  Hope you like it.

Just a couple boxes

 Hey again:

 Last weekend I spent several hours altering a couple cigar boxes for my friend Rayann so she could take them home to Canada.   It was one of those races against the clock craft days, because there was packing to do and a plane to catch.  One is for an auction for breast cancer and the other is a gift.  Since over at Creative Card Blanche the April Adventure is an Altered cigar box I thought I'd share these 2 - First one is called the Hope Box.  The second one is called the The Dancer.

Mosaic Luminary

Hey Everyone:
                          Have you ever had an art tool that you had to have but, you don't use it?  I had to have the luminary 3-D the second the die was released.  I got it home unpackaged it, put it on the shelf with my other Alterations dies.  There it has sat for a couple of years now.  My neighbors have this really cute lantern on their outside table and when this months Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016 included  Mosaic I knew just what I wanted to do.  Yep I finally pulled out my Luminary die dusted it off and used it.  I messed a few up of course.  Once i figured the top was a u-fold things went pretty smoothly.  If I do another mosaic with this die I'm going to do one panel at a time with the grout.  My card stock got a little soggy.
 I made a couple of  different roofs.   Hope you like it.
