Rose pens....

Here are a couple of my roses that I made out of duct tape. You kind find all sorts of tutorials on youtube. I made mine of course different then how they show them. I really liked how they turned out looking life like. Pretty fun. Also to be quite different I came up with up with using them as a pen. Made sturdy by really inforcing the middle with more green tape. Hope you like my creation will be making more when I get back from vacation.

I know that these are different but I figured I would go ahead and enter them in a flower challenge...

OSAAT....feeling *Sunni*

This is my last card for One Stitch at a Time's Design Team. With it being summer and things being so busy I can not commit 100%. I have enjoyed sooooo much working with them and showcasing the wonderful creators. I hope to continue entering in challenges and that you will as well.
Make sure to check out their sale on my sidebar on top right. They have some wonderful images just like the ones I have showcased these last 3 months.

Here is a card I made with Beary Dust-Sue. Her name is "Sunni". I used my pencils to color her in lightly and chalked the white background with blue. I even inked the edges of the card in green.
I figured I would take a different approach to the stars and stripes. I hope you like the stripes in the button and star background. Even used a Star fish as she is a "beacher". Background paper was from Tweety Jill.
I love her stuff...she actually lives in Florida so I go to craft functions where she is.

Just a some sweet images...

Here are just a couple of little things I whipped up. I wanted to work with the free image from Victoria case Yahoo's group. So made a flip bookmarker.
She is just adorable sitting on her leaf.

Then I worked with this sweet image drawing a blank where I did get it. But she is just sweet with those sunflowers. I did some faux stitching and layering and inking. Trying to focus on the image and try some different color combos.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.
I have been working on a Christmas project and am almost done with it. Loving the way it is turning out.

Leaving next week on vacation so crafting will be kinda scarce. Please don't forget me. smiles...Tammy

Sweet banner....butterflies and birdies

A tag banner.
I used my cricut to cut the shapes.
Made paper flower things...Not sure what they are called but they were fun to make.
Used a wonderful sticker set I won from Everyday Cricut. The birds & butterflies were rub-ons.
I added some sticker words and plastic sticker word "sharing".
Used my stickles and ink all over the place. I am pretty pleased with it.
Oh the wonderful papers are from My Minds Eye (Deanna Rutter). They make the best feeling sturdy.

I posted twice today...showing some of my collections below. :)

Entered into challenges:
Stickers- Pile it on
Stickers-WEE memories
Pink and Girly BEE-crafty

A few of my collections....something different!

See even though I am in a house full of boys...I can now bring out the feminine side of me. I love my Boyds bear collections...Oh and have I said it before that Daisies are my favorite flower....haha...of course I have!
I love my bike!!!
Here is a mix of Antique that I just love...and some new collections in the mist of them.
I have my collection of Avon cars that was for the boys. I have added lace and beads to girlie them up some. haha...

Here are some of my headvases....I try to protect them.
This cabinet has had a baseball bat to it and I had my hubby put in plexiglass this time.
Can you believe it...they broke a chunk out of it. I have this for many years.
Taking the abuse of little fella's.

I am sure I have shown this lighting fixture before. I made the yo-yo's (look like flowers) and the heart pillows. Added some beads and love the outcome. If my hubby's back was not so bad right now I would have him take this down so I could spray paint the black. hmmmmm a project for the future. Too heavy for me. :(

I have decided to step down from my design team at One Stitch at a Time. This Sunday will be my last post for the Team. Though I would love for all of you to join in on their challenges as they are really fun ones. The Digi creators are the best! Things are too busy over the summer for me and I can't commit a 100% so it is best. I will be around and still crafting when I can. I hope everyone enjoys there summer. We have lots to Tennessee and I am even going to New York first time with my sister in laws. Sooooo excited for that girl trip.
So please come back and check out my posts and maybe a candy give away soon.
Hugs...and Smiles...Tammy
