The Letter H

The current letter for the alpha challenge is  H.  The word I picked out is Hollyhock.

This is so much fun and when you get through (or I get through) what a neat dictionary to have as a fun art book.

I have entered this into The Alpha Challenge at the Craft Barn - Letter H

Thanks for visiting and why not give this challenge a try!!!

One Stamp Three Ways

Good afternoon all my creative friends out there in Blogland!!  All of you that have elected to follow me, I sure do appreciate it!
A couple of weeks ago I was chatting with Danielle and she told me that she was making a Christmas card every month and would I like to join her.  I said yes - that would give me more incentive to get some Christmas cards done.
I am calling this post One Stamp Three Ways   --

 This was the hardest card to take a picture of -- my husband (he is my assistant) only took 436 pictures of this one card.  The card itself is forest green and you cannot see the holly in the corners.  But no matter what he did, the silver sparkle spray I used would not come out in the right way -- this was the best of the lot.

This is my canvas done with the same stamp and a similar design.  This canvas is completely black.

And finally a tag.  Once again done with the same stamp!

So my Christmas cards have begun - onward ho!!  I sure do thank you for all your sweet comments and stopping in for a visit.

The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - Letter 'E'

I am so sorry the letter wasn't 'B'  because this is a beginning.  But I am happy that the letter is 'E' because I am excited to give this challenge a go!

As I said - the letter is 'E" and I choose the word educate.

 Below is a closer view of the left side page with my word 'EDUCATE'.

Here is the right hand side of my rather large dictionary page.

I found my dictionary in an antique and junk store and paid all of five dollars for it!  There was no date when it was published but the pages are yellowed and a little on the thin side. It measures eight inches by eleven inches and weighs somewhat over six pounds.  

To be quite honest, I am not over thrilled with this but the way I see it is that I have no where to go but up!
This is such a fun challenge that the Craft Barn is sponsoring and I will have a pretty neat book when done!
Hope you can play along!!!!

I hope you get a chance to visit and leave  some love.  Thanks to all that do and I sure do understand when you can't!
