Where has the time gone!! I haven't posted on my blog since forever. It doesn't mean I
haven't been busy! I got caught up in all the summer activities. One is working in my garden. I had some old shutters in the basement that I wanted to do something fun with. I really do need a Garden Angel since I don't have a green thumb
My hubby helped me put this together. The wings are made from some old boards and the Dollar Store has some garden gate things that you can cut apart. They worked perfectly to add some interest to the wings.
Then I went to the Christmas Tree Shop and bought the little bird house and the bird. I love
how it came together.
I had an old grapevine wreath that I let soak in the bathtub overnight so I could shape it
around the circle of wood that I found at Hobby Lobby. I do really like how she came out!!
I have also been making some birthday cards for family. The one below is for my youngest sister! Her birthday is today! This card is an SVG file from Dreaming Tree. I used some feathers I had in my stash for her hat. Don't you love her earrings!
The cards below are made from a 3D Papercraft kit that I ordered from Amazon. It is by Mabel Lucie Attwell and comes with all the layers ready to assemble. There are several different designs but the kissing kids are my favorite.
The side view shows the 3D look.
I also made the card below from that kit. My Daughter turned 40 this year ( hard to believe)
so I thought this card would be cute for her.
Sorry this post is so long but I wanted to get back into the groove of posting to my blog again. One of
the things keeping me busy is - My sisters and I have started a new blog store! We have several of our repurposed and handmade items in the store.

Hope everyone is happy and healthy and having a fabulous summer! I know I am!
