Golden Butterflies


I came across these aqua/gold scraps a few weeks ago and wanted to create 
with them.  I found come gold and vellum snippets to go with them.

I wanted each of them to be unique so browsed my die cuts and picked
out a few.  Did some layering and splattered metallic gold and aqua
paints on them. A few embellishments and I was happy with
my butterfly cards.  I've already mailed several as thank you's
for food and kindness given to me while recuperating from my
hip replacement surgery.    Thank you to my friends/followers
for their good wishes.  I am doing well and have my 3 week 
checkup next week.

A few fun challenges:

Happy St. Patrick's Day


 Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I am hooked on pocket cards.  So fun, easy and cute.  This was one of
my projects when going to Shirley's.    
This is a pre-scheduled post, I should be a week out from
 a hip replacement today.  Hopefully when I am off 
I will do some blog hopping but may not be leaving comments.
I hope to be back in my craft room and blogging soon. 
Recovery is going well, a few little things slowing
it down but improving every day.

Walker Bag


My latest project, a walker bag. After knee or hip replacement you
need a walker for about 1 week then advance to a cane. They cost anywhere
from $16 on up and I was able to make this one for $3.00!  Having a 
walker bag enables you to be more independent like getting a drink 
                            for yourself. Many of my friends have had surgery and needed 
something like this.  I plan to make more.
