Another post

Yep.. two posts in one day... 'just a crazy lady doing some crafting overtime on a dark and dreary rainy day here in the mid-west.

I've got a few challenges from my Design DIVAS forum that I needed to post.. several of which are for our Secret Sister Challenges.

This first pic is for our Christmas tag challenge.... I think these could almost be tree decorations. I made this same tag last year and loved it so much I had to do it again. It's made with chipboard in the round nesties die... I antiqued one with tea dye and one with shabby shutters on music designer paper... I love that look.

This second item is for Julie's Challenge from several weeks ago. We were to make 'Lollipop' flowers. Well, I have to admit that I fretted over this one for weeks - you already know that if you have been following my posts. But this morning, knowing that our mailing date is quickly approaching, I had to get busy.

I took out some designer paper, tore pieces into circles, inked the edges with various distress inks, crumbled up the paper and 'worked' the paper until it was raised and three dimensional. I added Stickles Pink Pearls to the pink flower and while still wet, added small gold beads and a rhinestone. For the rust flower I added a simple pearl brad. So why did I fret over this project? Not sure why, because I kind of like the way these turned out. They might be perfect on a greeting card. Hope my secret sister likes them!

What do you think?  Have you tried Lollipop flowers yet? Don't be intimidated as I was.. jump in and try.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting.  Enjoy your day and be safe in all you do.
Huge hugs from here to there...

I might have to make some of these up for ornaments, its always nice to have little gifts for people stopping by through the holidays.
