Winter Tag #2

This is the second Winter tag that I had in mind to 
make last week.
 I'm not a fan of Winter. But I do love how 
special snowflakes are.
And am totally blown away that none of them 
are the same. 
So this year I plan to make it through these cold months
 focusing on the beauty of these 
delicate bits of moisture. 
Supplies I used:
Mellisa Francis snowflake paper (old)
Silver stickers, Basic Grey embossing snowflake, 
Spellbinders snowflake die, 
Martha Stewart snowflake punches, 
SU! snowflake punch (old),
Spare Parts crystal brad,
Pink and clear rhinestones,
Martha Stewart glitters pink and silver
and tinsel glitter,
Silver diamond glitter,
Pop dots, Tulle and Stickles.
W.R.M.C. snow flake eyelet
Tim Holtz white seam binding ribbon.

Another Banner Day!

Made this cute little banner yesterday over at Deb's. The week before I had started cutting it out for a surprise project. But we went to the post office to mail out our charm swaps that are going to Canada. And then some shopping for art supplies instead. So since it was ready to put together I brought it over to do. Well another friend was in need of a lift. So nothing like some Art therapy to help get you through what ever it is we are dealing with. So we (mostly Deb) cut out all the elements so she could make one too.
Even with a Pizza ( Thanks Steve!)  and coffee breaks provided by Debra of  It's All Good.  We were all excited that we actually finished it in one afternoon. Great to see everyone's own spin on the same idea.
Check out her blog to see a similar yet different banner. And everyone's mood was made better for listening sharing caring and creating. So if you are feeling a little down may I suggest a little Art therapy and go "Create" something. (smile)
(I'm pretty sure she has beat me to the posting of this project..I have yet to check for myself.)
Supplies I used:
Old Sizzix original banner die, Tim Holtz  paper rosette sizzlet strip die, Laundry line paper, ribbons, beading, Tattered Angels glimmer mists, tiny paper roses, small eyelets, distress inks, Thickers Alphabet, Martha Stewart glitter,  and Hemp cord.

Heart of Hope

Sending this hanging heart out to Joann.
Tomorrow she has her surgery. 
Hopefully they will be able to remove all the cancer 
so it will never come back!
UPDATE: 11/3/2010
Her surgery went well. They kept her over night for observation. 
Good thing too because one of the meds they gave her 
caused an allergic reaction. Itching and made her throat swell.
They got things under controll.
But they kept her over night again to be 100% sure 
she was okay to send home.
Thank You for your 
thoughts and prayers and poems.
I'll make sure I tell her about all of you wonderful bloggers.
