I love this clock. It makes me smile to look at it as it reminds me of all the fun times with my friend Linda, how time flies, how time changes things, how I rarely have enough time to do all I want to do.
So, may 2001 provide you with some very important things. Some special time with God each and every day. Wonderful time with your family near and far. May you have time to accomplish what must be done and time to enjoy some down time!
I am not making any resolution this year. I am hoping to do the best with the time I do have and enjoy the people that mean the most to me. I am hoping that time will be on my side and be my friend.
I look forward to sharing many thoughts and many cards and projects with you this coming year.
On this note...Time to sign off and wish my family a Happy New Year as we are only moments away from the new year here in the CST zone! (that is just for you my brother Cary!)
Happy Creating in 2011!

A great night for a wonderful young lady! I was so impressed with Hailey and her friends. All were very polite and sweet. They didn't seem to mind having the old folks there either!!!
Happy Birthday Miss Hailey! We Love You!

- I work a little backwards...so I started with the light purlple paper. I love the texture on it. I used Treasures by Worldwin. I used my PanPastels by ColorFin for the stenciling of the individual peacock feathers.
- I added a light layer of color to the edge of the paper.
- Next I stencild more PanPastels on the peacock background then used the transluscent paste over the image and let it dry.
- Now I started on the tag. I stenciled with the PanPastels then edged the tag with chalk ink. I also colored the tag string with the ink.
- Once all the layers are ready to assemble I cut the peacock background and placed the tag on top.
- Next, cut the light lavender layer larger so you can angle your peacock tag layer.
- Cut your teal layer 1/2 inch larger than the light lavender and then place on the base card.
- I left the space at the bottom of the card and layed the birthday greeting over the three layers and paste with the blue paste.
- Add glitter and let dry. Add Prima flower for the finishing touch.
I hope that you all have enjoyed the Blue/Purple challenge. Check out the stencils used shown that were used. I love all of these sooooo much! Happy Creating!

I started with my FAV Christmas tree stencil. I then used the AWESOME blue paste on the image. I lifted the stencil off and then sprinkled on silver glitter and set it aside to dry. I then tied 3 little bows and used one of the cool decorative pins from Dreamweaver to hold them in place. I did glue the pin to the card front. I also don't like having the sharp pin exposed so added a dot of glue to the end and glittered the dot.
I did round the corners and edge the layers with Majestic Blue VersaFine ink by Tsukineko!
Hope you enjoyed this installment of Dream Schemes!

Our first Challenge given by our fearless leader Lynell:
Thanksgiving Day Parade of Christmas Cards in non traditional colors. I gave you a sneak peek yesterday so here is the entire project! So...Ta Da...a very non traditional colors Christmas Card!!!
So I started with a mustard yellow base card and then layered a cool piece of paper by Basic Grey on top for my backdrop. This is where I pulled all the different colors from to make the card. I loved the peachy color and happy to have a cool snip it of peach ribbon stuff. I added it to the side of the card.
I then went to work building my pear. I started with glossy blue embossing paste on the sister paper of the one already on the card
While the pear was drying I used black glossy embossing paste on the flip side of the paper for my "Merry Christmas". (I ended up just pasting right on the card so now I have a spare!)
The next bit gets repetitive so will not show you each step but I had to go over the again with crackle paste this time and let it dry. I then added a little creamy brown chalk in by Clearsnap so the crackle paste was not so white.
I then put the pear stencil back in place and layered the partridge stencil where I wanted it on the pear. The entire image does not fit which is why I left the pear stencil over the image. This prevents my next step on using the black glossy paste on the partridge from getting any on the background paper! I layered everything together for the finished project. A VERY non traditional colors Christmas Card!
Hope you all enjoy the THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE OF CARDS...brought to you by the
