A wreath and an altered K

Just sharing a couple more projects tonight of a wreath and an altered K I made for my friend Kelley.
I also made her a fall banner but it seems I can't find my pics of that....oh well this will be enough. :)
My friend Kel likes black white and orangeand grunge or steampunk styles, gears etc...
 and brown and red and script paper so here's what I came up with for her.

Thanks for stopping by...

Glitzy altered purse

I am working on this Glitsy altered purse for the sept Maggie swap on the cricut message board.
I'm not going to go into all the details but wanted to show it to you while I was updating my blog.
I am finished with the purse but now I have to work on some goodies to go inside.
Shhhh don't tell Jessica....LOL

Altered Jesus Frame

This is an altered frame I made for a young friend who was going thru some tough times.
I started with an old frame I got at a resale shop then after removing some wood etc I began my work. I just
love this image of Jesus carrying the lady, I feel as if many days it is me he is carrying, especially this past week as my dear husband and I have just learned that he has cancer again. We thought he had beat it as he had been cancer free for 6 years now. But we are trusting Jesus to carry us both thru this difficult time.
I also added the serenity prayer as it is something to cling to when life gets crazy.
Janda like my gift, I hope you do too?

My items made for Tammy

Now I will show you what I made for Tammy in our private swap. This is a little comp book made with the Magnolia reaching for the stars stamp, iamroses flowers, my cricut, say it in pearls bling, lace and Once upon a Time cardstock. She and I have similar tastes so it was easy for me to make her this pink and white notebook. She said she loves it and is using it already.

 Tag for inside

Next is the altered trunk box. I used paper from the Now and Then collection I got at HL. I used laces, satin ribbon and mini bloomers flowers as trims. I also added some iamroses flowers to this and a but of pink beading and a flourish.


Next I made her this dress from banner using the TH dress form die.

Finally I made her this little shadow box as a suprise to her. I think it turned out soft and sweet.

Hope you enjoyed this visit, please let me know what you think of my crafts.

Tammy's beautiful creations

I had a private swap with a sweet lady named Tammy, despite her health problems and the loss of her Grandma during this time she made me some gorgeous crafts. Let me share them with you.
Tammy had a machine embroidery buisness and makes the most amazing things with her talent and
machine. She made me this gorgeous pillow with Jesus carrying his cross and one of my fav bible verses on it. The colors match my living room too so it looks perfect.

I should have put this picture first because it has the whole swap
from her in it...just look at all these amazing crafts. We also shared a few things from our stash with
each other.

The purple shirt in the background was a custom made shirt for me to wear to my Red Hat
Ladies get together's. I just love it!
And she suprised me with this amazing birthday banner also, made with a Silhoutte Cameo machine and Our Ladies diary paper. Then she threw in some matching paper she found.
Next she made me 2 fairy trays and a little fairy journal, a pouch for keeping computer discs into and a sweet white cross. I love it all. Thankyou Tammy for an amazing swap.

I will end by showing a closeup of one of the letters on the banner and a pic of myself proudly wearing the shirt she embroidered for me.
