I Can't Believe it! I Won!

This Beautiful Print from Cindy
From the One World One Heart Event
Wow! What a nice surprise!
This is the scripture that immediately came to mind
 when I saw this print.
Proverbs 4:23 More than all else that is to be guarded, 
safeguard your heart, for out of it are the sources of life. 
One of my favorite scriptures....among many.
 She has hand written around the lady
"Watch over your heart with diligence...
for from it flow the springs of life...
I just love it!!!
Cindy , Thank You so Much!!

Kraftin' Kimmies Card Challenge #66

Just got some of the new Kraftin Kimmie's stamps. 
This one is Abigail Apple.
Thought I would go ahead with the latest 
and that 
I would challenge myself to also use some paper 
that was gifted to me as a hostess gift. 
I have no idea who makes it.
I have her holding the sentiment that says 
You're as Sweet as ...
Inside it will say
... apple pie!
 Is there more that can be done to this card?
Of course.
The question I ask myself is...
Will I?

Party Gifts

Thanks to my friend Katherine.
She's been rounding up some interested ladies.
 So I had an "How to make earrings 101 class" 
at my house this past Saturday.
Where I taught the ladies to make simple earrings
 like the one pictured here.
In addition to some tasty snacks and refreshments...
I made these little heart boxes using one
of the Sizzix dies I have.
 Basic Grey papers for the hearts.
Painted chipboard for the key.
Accented it with a little flower and ribbons.
Super easy. Super sweet!  
I stashed some crystal beads and pearls in them.
As a little thank you for coming.

Assorted Projects

More fun projects with Deb.
On out last creative Friday Deb brought over these clear 
Cupcake boxes that she has a die cut for. 
My top and insert piece she cut out of green card stock. 
Here is what I ended up doing to decorate the box.

Embossed the paper with a Cuttlebug folder
Recollection bling colored with alcohol inks.
Prima flowers and Irene's Gardina flowers.
Sequin trim and MS punches.

She also brought me one of the Michale's wood boxes 
(that we find in the dollar section) to alter.
 I worked on that today..I was trying to clean up 
for a class on Saturday..oh well. 
Clean up will now be tomorrow.

We also experimented with some different types of 
 fabrics to make more fabric flowers. 
We named some potato chip flowers.
Too much to explain.
Anyway we moved onto the more typical lollipop style.
Deb seemed happy playing with the fire.
I got around to playing with the fire too and did
 a couple that night.
 Then Monday I spent the afternoon making some more. 
I call these my Steampunk flowers.
They really go well with the 
Graphic 45 Steampunk Deputante papers.
(e-mail me if you are interested in a couple of these)
I have used one of them to decorate the above box.

And I've been making stick pins and charms and 
I finished my bead soup project which 
I will reveal on the 26th of this month.
