This was my latest completed project...
another postcard for a trade.. Theme was
"Blue"and the title for this one is "Feeling Blue"
A collage of lace, metallic net, sequin fabric, and sequin stars, all under a layer of blue tulle. I used a rubber stamp for the face and the butterfly is a motif I did on my embroidery machine. It was fun to do and a nice change as I have been doing most of my cards on the Embellisher with the wool rovings..

This is REALLY beautiful!Your work is amazing!
Maggie ~ I wanted to thank you for your dear sweet comments about Jake!I really do know God loves our animals more than we do and cares for them but I will hate to see Jake go. We used to have a Scotty too ~ Erin Mctavish! He HATED cats so much! Then when we moved my Mom brought him to the dog pound. The woman there fell in love with him and kept him. She said he fell in love with her cat and they would sleep together!
Oh well ~ sleep tight!
