New ART to share....finally....

....we had a big lightning strike that took our our cable, phone, internet....my sanity. LOL But at least it gave me more time to ART. :)

I am participating in an ART charm swap with a very talented group of gals, hosted by arlene. I needed to make 18 charms to share. I am so looking forward to the returns on this one. I'm hoping to make a charm bracelet or necklace for me to wear. Anywho, I went through several ideas, but returned to one of my fave mediums for charms, scrabble tiles. Hubs was good enough to vertically drill them for me. Yippee!! I picked Alice in Wonderland for my theme. They are coated with Diamond Glaze and edged with copper foil tape. I added (of course) some beaded dangles for some movement and sparkle. The cards I packaged them on were run through the cuttlebug. This was a fun swap!! Thanks Arlene.

This is the mailing envie for the charms

All packaged up....









I also made this card for a monthly lottery with the theme of seashells. I saw the idea that a friend had made and being a good pirate....stole it!! Apparently it is called pyramage. All I know is I enjoyed it and will be making more soon!! The image used in this card is taken at my fave beach spot. There are numerous "Totem Trees" there that are continually changing as people walk by. It is a very private beach and a very spiritual place for me. Also shown is the quote I love from e.e. cummings that I used on the inside along with the "sand" envie that I made. Anywho....happy to have my Interwebs back!! :)
