Embroidered Rainbow

I love this new set by Lawn Fawn. It's been a long time since I did any real stitching!! This was fun and didn't take long at all.

Happy Easter Mini Moo

Have you ever heard of a "mini moo?" It's similar to a ATC card but it's 1/2 the size of a business card. Anyway, I have been stamping for 30 years and this was the first I had heard of this term. Splitcoast had a mini moo challenge last week and I stuck mine on a card and added some doodling around the edges. I thought it would be good for this challenge. You can see all the other mini moos at Splitcoast here .

Happy Easter duo bunnies

My fractured toe is continuing to heal and I still cannot put a shoe on my right foot. In fact, my left hip was hurting so bad from being lop-sided due to the boot I had to wear on my foot, that I had to go to the hip dr last week to get a cortisone shot in it. It's much better thank goodness and I hope it stays that way! My hip was worse than the toe!!

I still love these Easter bunnies from Sizzix (from last year).

Cake Pops for 60th Birthday

Another 60th birthday card for a friend. PS My toe is starting to feel much better. I can now walk without my "boot" on around the house but I still can't fit a normal shoe on without it hurting. Hopefully, I can put that shoe on in a few days!! It's still very bruised and sore but not as bad when I put the foot down to walk. Thanks for all the well wishes!

Sending Bear Hugs

Well guess what I did this week!! I jammed my pinky toe into my bed and fractured it!! So I am in a boot all week and it has not been fun hobbling around in it. It makes me off balance so I don't wear it unless I have to. I hope I'm all better by next week. I already feel better and I did that on Wednesday. Today is hubby's birthday and luckily we have no plans! 

I colored this bear with my new Tim Holtz watercolor pencils. I just love how they go on like "butter". I also used a little wax paper to get the texture on the bear's fur. It's really easy to do. You can see it done here. It's called Pencil Indenting.

Carrot car anyone?

I'm still enjoying this Easter set by Avery Elle. I used Distress Watercolor Pencils to color this and I am now in love with these pencils by Tim Holtz. They are so fun!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I don't have a single St. Patrick's Day stamp but I made this 3-leaf clover out of 3 tiny hearts and a stem of green paper.
