Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

I totally lifted this from Eat Cake Graphics (Holly). I loved the design. I thought it was a perfect card. I did change the sentiment (Purple Onion Designs). So this is one of my Christmas cards this year. The reason I am lifting is that I am running out of time and ideas.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season.


This little fellow is my attempt to take a picture of a dog and needle felt a like image. The owner says that it looks like Winston and was thrilled when I gave it to her. I didn't see it but I was pleased with the way it turned out. Winston is a Jack Russell Terrier. I do think this looks like a Jack Russell.
Thanks for stopping by.

Cover Girl

Well I will be a Monkey's Uncle or maybe that should be Monkey's Aunt. Anyway. I was pretty excited to find out that some cards that I had submitted to Stamper's Sampler were being published. I was totally blown away when I found out that those cards were gracing the cover. DANG. The stamps I used are Paper Artsy, Squiggly Ink. Some very fun stamps to work with. I incorporated some hand drawn images amoung the stamped images and then watercolored. It felt so good to be creative.

Thanks for stopping in.


I just learned how to do needle felting. Been putting it for almost a year. Why you ask? Good question and I don't have a good answer. Guess I just needed someone to show me how to do it. I read lots of articles and watched some videos but it took a friend actually sitting with me and showing me to get me hooked.

Filmore here (see picture below) is a thank you to a wonderful person - Holly. She is the owner of Eat Cake Graphic stamps. As you know, ECG is one of my all time favorite stamp companies. Filmore is one of the stamps that I love the most. I thought it would be fun to see Filmore in 3D. Now he has a home on her mantle.

Here is a picture of the stamp that I modeled my needle felting bear after. It has been awhile since I posted anything. Sorry about that. Thanks for stopping by.
