I love to cross stitch and when I found a die to give the holes needed I went to  town...I was limited on space but seemed to find simple cross stitch patterns and drew a few of my own.  The next challenge was to find dies to cut to fit them to fit on a card...between PTI and Spellbinders I found circles and tags to cover up the borders...Now I have to choose the recipient!

Make it Monday: Mixing Florals


Dawn's challenge was to mix florals from different stamp sets. I chose  Sunflower Harvest, Color Pop Autumn, and Grans Garden. The sentiment is from Banner Sentiments which I curved to fit the oval and the stencil is from the Garden Gate Kit. I often mix florals but it does take a little longer putting things away - LOL.

Anniversary 9: Pottery

This Anniversary is Pottery using Paperclay which I never heard of but was an easy and different medium. I used the 2 hearts from Choose Joy and the Limitless Layers Heart. The sentiment is Handwritten Sentiments from Simon Says. 

Anniversary 8: Bronze

Anniversary 8 : Bronze2. I used Tropic and Leave it be Leaves which I stamped in ripe avacado on ripe avacado and smeared perfect pearls in gold. I then I had a bright idea of clear embossing them- as you can see they are too dark but were used anyway. I used the Thanks from a big Basics Cutouts. 

Anniversary 8: Bronze

Anniversary 8: Bronze. Well I must not have many Bronze things in my stash so I used Bronze paper for my strips and sentiment. The Hello is from Ways to say Hello. 

Anniversary 7: Wool

 For the 7 th Anniversary I chose the Friendship Jar of cookies. I stamped a few cookies on the pink felt and added them at the bottom
