Be Happy

Don't you just LOVE the formality of black and sparkly things? I do!! It reminds me of a Hepburn movie for some reason. Anyhoo, this card was one of the rejected (by me)designs for the Artisan Award competition. It is a very textural piece that I actually really liked. the sentiment is ever so slightly crooked which is why it remains in my possession. What do you think?

Boleyn Cuff Bracelet

This took roughly a day to do-starting and stopping as only a mom of three kids, 3 cats, 1 hamster, and 1 husband can do. It is made with golden glass pearls, Swarovski topaz 2AB (which look sort of pinkish) and 15o gold seed beads. Truly beautiful, light catching, and classic. I will forward the pattern to any who would like it.

Unfroggetable card

This was created for a contest for SU! which I CURIOUSLY didn't win. UNFROGGETABLE stamp set was used for this masterpiece.
