As February comes to a close show some Sweet Stripes

These sweet girls are certainly "showing some stripes"! I couldn't resist doing this challenge for a chance to win a $50 Simon Says Stamp Credit Voucher!
 I found some striped paper and a sweet image and made one of my chunky cards. I used a little lace at the top and  ruffled up the edges. It was so fun and I love the stripes on stripes. You GO GIRLS. I hope I win, it was so fun to create.... and I wonder which one of my friends will recieve this card... On the back is stamped "Don't just live the length of your life, live the width as well." anon

Artsy Roll of Toilet Paper

 What can a sixty year old use.... what everybody can use TOILET PAPER!
A surprise Birthday treat day at work. I did pretty up the roll of paper with another pin I created.... just been on a roll with them (no pun intended).  Soon I will be on to something else. Deb liked it and wore it all day.

Wrist Art

 Created this for a creative girly friend that just turned 50! Happy Birthday Jackie! Your surprise party was fun

Jackie said she is a greeter at her church on Sunday, and would wear it... I wonder what people will think!

art prompt

 I saw this done to create a poem and  wanted to  give it a try... It was not as easy as I thought it would be.. I decided this would be a great prompt for creating some kind of art.  I think it would inspire something a little on the dark side, which is usually not my style. Please share a comment with a link if you create something from this prompt. I would love to see what you come up with!
Do Something Creative Everyday.

Wooly Nest

Yes, I do use the Wash Cloth Soap I sell on Etsy... when my soap is used up,I have a cozy cute Wooly Nest to hold a little treasure. I wonder if the birds would use it in building a nest if I left it outside in the spring?

Corsage for a friend

Had some winter fun making a corsage for a co-worker that was having a retirement happy hour party! Used the same vintage paper(1915)as the book I upcycled to a journal that I gave to her earlier.

for the flower, used one of my favorite face stamps, butterfly wings.... you can never have too many of them. You can't forget the crown and heart to top it off.The background petals were given to me by my artsy computer friend in Alaska. Stitched it onto a creamy wool.

What is in the bundle?

Here is a peek at what I put in the art bundle, it has been snowed on a couple times already, windy but it seems to be snug to the tree. It will be interesting how the contents will look when I rescue it in April.
