happy scrappy sat chickies!

here's my tag for this week's challenge over at ~ Tag You're It ~. yeppers the theme is *diamonds are a girls best friend*..well ~ who doesn't love bling and diamonds. that's my interpretation. i took a pic of a canvas painting our 18 yr old dd did ~ yepperz ~ that's the background of my tag. how kewl is that ~ you should see the painting IRL ~ whoa..gorgeous stuff! so. anyhoo i printed out a pic of the painting onto a peice of cs ~ added some flowers, some bling, some stickles and a few butterflies. i'm giving her the tag ~ cause she also gave me that beautiful silk scarf she made ~ and it'll be a lil *thankx to her*. she handpainted it..isn't it gorgeous. thanks again ladies at TYI for another fabulous challenge. also, i just got an email from ~ 2cre8art ~ ~ i won this month's challenge (fabric quiltie) ~ what a wonderful surprise ~ along with the email i received some absolutely scrapalicious vintage collage sheets ~ can't wait to get playing with those. i totally love the challenges there, too ~ they have a different technique challenge once a month ~ check it out chickies ~ you'll love it.

~ 2cre8art ~

whoa ~ didn't think i'd get this challenge done. yepperz
~ 2cre8art ~ has a challenge going on this month ~ creating a *fabric quiltie*. ok, this is totally out of my box. i've never ever ever created something like this before ~ and i gotta tell ya ~ whoa ~ i absolutely enjoyed it and will definitely be trying this again. everything on the quiltie is stitched. nope ~ no paper products on this one and no adhesive. the picture (and no..that's not me) was printed onto the fabric. yep ~ i put it through the printer! ACK ~ that was a lil tricky. all stitching is either machine stitched or hand stitched, as was the beads. the wings (from layers of color) were stamped, cut and handstitched. if ya get a chance chickies check out the challenges over there ~ sure does get ya thinkin *out of the box*. well ~ i'm over and out ~ i'm venturing out in that gorgeous sunshine today and takin my camera with me ~ ah..maybe i'll even get some pics! hugz
