grand prize winner!

I took part in a crop at lil scrappers ( ), it was their second on-line crop and the design team issued challenges that took you out of your comfort zone! The grand prize was Imaginesce ( all kinds of happy)! When i found out i was the winner of the grand prize i sure did the happy dance! The papers and embellies are so awesome!
My friend Jen and i were thinking of having a " cricut and card crop " soon!
It's great to crop with someone and swap ideas, i can see some yummy cards happening with the "all kinds of happy" line from Imagenesce!
Wishing you all a great scraphappy day!

random ponderings

It's official! ...... just got my fiskar's scissors with my Fiskateer # 3830 engraved on them! I'm a bonafide fiskateer! Love the shipping label on the box and also the burlap bag for the scissors! The scissors glide through my cutting! i love them! I made this cute little beaded hat and card for a friend who is a redhatter!
I went to a "meet n greet" for a friend who's family travelled from holland and other parts for a reunion and birthday celebration! Love the starfuit floating in the punch!
I've been busy with chocolate wedding favors for canada day, and i also have to do a Bride's bouquet for another wedding in July! Will post pics soon!

atc's and tags

Oh, happy days! my images appeared this time! don't you think the Atc's are remarkable??
The tags are all so bright and cheery! I'm doing another swap for Atc's and also for Tags!
Fiskateers keeps me busy with all these remarkable works of art!
Wishing you all a great day!

Spring swaps and a winner!

I got involved with tag and atc swaps at Fiskateers! Atc's are such a remarkable work of art and i love making them as well as receiving them! Making tags is also a fun project to do! I just received my Atc swap and the theme for this was the color purple!

I would really like to show you them but the images seem to be having difficulty appearing here!
