We Have Winners!

I hadn't forgotten about the necklace drawing, Just been very busy on Mother's Day. Hope everyone had a great day! My daughter gave me a dozen roses and both sons called, so life is good! Life is also good for a couple of winners! The winners are from:
Sharne's Bit & Bobs and Patty Skypants!!! Congratulations ladies! As soon as I get your addresses, I will have them on their way to you!

I have a couple of ATC's to share with you that I have finished up and getting ready to send them to a gal in Louisiana.



The theme was Love Houses



This one was our choice to send, so I decided on a Mermaid with a lovely poem that reads:

A sea shell is never empty,
it's filled with lots of things.
It holds the sounds of crashing waves,
and songs that mermaids sing.

I am always amazed how things look blown up, because I have to paint so tiny, especially the eyes! The highlights in the eyes are even smaller than the head of a pin!

I had made this party gal and couldn't help but put a fork in each hand! It's perhaps how I have been feeling lately, wanting sweets, but I am trying so hard to stick true to my diet. I went to the Dr. today and she is very happy with me as I have now lost 50 lbs. Now to just keep it up! Maybe if I blog about it, I will have to! Twenty years ago when I quit smoking, I told people that I quit and I felt I couldn't go back on my word. I quit cold turkey. However, one can not stop eating entirely!



It never fails, I usually have at least one fur baby get into a photo. So here's Boa, my little party crasher! They always look so innocent when they want to steal the show.



I am working on some metal ATC's and can hardly wait to finish them to post. I love how they are turning out and I have 10 in the works, so you might say I am into heavy metal lately!
