Good Friday all my crafty friends!! Well it has been "just a bit" since I have posted! It's not because I don't have things to post, it's been because I have been extremely busy! It is wide open at my full time job right now with various transitions taking place and summer life at our home has been a little crazy as well! And here I thought I was going to have more time!!! LOL Things are starting to pan out here and there, so I am hopeful that, that will give me the art time I have been looking for for months! LOL
I have quite a few things I need to share, for example, ALLLL my tags that I have done for our monthly tag swaps, but I can't share them until my pals get them! That being said, DON'T WORRY PALS, the tags are going in the mail today!!! I am so sorry for my lateness! So I will share all that craftiness when they receive them!!
But I will share my AWESOME "happy mail" I received last weekend from my wonderful, wonderful friend Becky Wentworth! Becky and I connected over on the Google+ Community and have just hit it off and swap tags on a regular bases whether we are partners or not! It has been great fun to share with her, glean from her awesome talent and grow a wonderful friendship! Who says you can't have a relationship across the miles????? LOL
Becky and I both love Vintage and she ROCKED this Vintage tag for sure!! The pictures I take of Becky's tags NEVER do them justice! In person, you can see all the yummy textures and goodies up close that she incorporates into each one! This one is NO exception! The texture on this tag is off the chain! It looks like she used some crackle paint on this tag, which I LOVE! She also used some yummy mica flakes, lace and cute metal element and that gorgeous flower! I loved the Vintage lady she put on there it went SO well with all the other elements and then when she added the "Stop and smell the roses" sentiment, it all tied in! Becky also put a copy of this really neat poem on the back that I loved. I remember in school literature I used to hate when we had to decipher poems! As an adult now, I love poems! Isn't that funny how time changes a person! Just TOTALLY loved this tag Becky!!
Becky is such a sweetheart in that she ALWAYS sends me some precious goodies in with my tag! I loved the homemade card that looked like she used some gelli print paper on, which was lovely! This time she also sent some gorgeous knapkins that I can't wait to use in some of my projects!!! She also added some cute "little tags," some die cuts that are SO timely that I want to use on an upcoming project that I am working on and one of the neatest things is a piece from one of her recent projects on her blog that I loved whereby she used alcohol inks on translucent Yupo paper that I absolutely LOVED!!! I don't even want to use it in anything because it is so gorgeous all on it's own!! LOL I'm a very blessed friend and am so thankful for you Becky!!
I hope you enjoyed my lovely goodies! Make sure to go check out Becky's blog where you can see more of her lovely creations! THANKS AGAIN my lovely friend! :)
Blessings to you today! :)
