Colors of Summer

Click on image to see it's original size

These flowers are so bright and beautiful - one of my favorite things about summer!  Sort of sad that summer is winding down so quickly.  It sure went by fast this year, but then again I think I say that every year, LOL!
Anyway this tag is the result of another one of my Winni's Mask Lessons.

I just love the image of these sweet little girls sharing a favorite storybook before bed.  I imagine that they are sisters and it makes me think of mine (smiles).

The tag was made as one of my Winni's Mask Lessons.

I have decided to sign up for Winni's Mask Lesson group, so I will be sharing some of my lesson results here.

Since it is September, I know this Easter tag is out of season, but the lesson supplied a really pretty Easter mask that I wanted to use.  So here it is -- LOL!

Native American

I have been gone for a very long time & have not been creating for quite some time either, but I think I'm ready to get back into the swing of things! During this period I have kept very busy knitting and crocheting dishcloths, scarves, headbands and hats, etc. for family and my Etsy shop Crafted Essentials.

This is the tag I made today which I used to make an IncrediMail stationery. I followed a tutorial written by Robin at PSP Fanatic. If you would like me to send you the stat, let me know your e-mail addy so I can send it to you and you can add it to your stylebox.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Tuesday!!!

Summer Flowers n Birds

Click on image to see it's original size

This is one of my lessons from Winni's PSP Lesson Group.  I am almost finished with that set of lessons and will start a new set of Winni's lessons soon after.

Purple and pink are two of my very favorite colors and this so makes me think of Spring on this freezing cold Winter day.  The beautiful graphic is from a group share and it is one of my faves -- so soft and pretty!

Out of the Box Easter Bunny

Click on image to see it's original size

Ya, I know Easter is not for a long time yet but I had to make something fun and cute this morning to distract me for awhile.  I am waiting for the vet clinic to open so I can take my very sick kitty in.  He has not eaten for a whole day and has barely even moved around -- my poor baby!  Please say a prayer for my Petie.  Thank you!

The tutorial is written by Merry Maid and the Graphic Artist is Trina Clark - her work can be purchased HERE

Jesus Crowned

Click on image to see it's original size

I was inspired to make this tag tonight after returning from a Bible study group in which we are reading a book written by an actor (Bruce Marchiano) who portrays Jesus in the book of Matthew.  The book is titled In The Footsteps of Jesus - One Man's Journey Through the Life of Christ, a very awe-inspiring book that I highly recommend reading.  I can't wait until the end of the study when we will watch the movie.

I framed this strikingly beautiful picture to match the stationery I made following one of my favorite, and very talented, tutorial writer's (Kathleen Gamock a/k/a Gamock's Creations and Tuts).  If you would like the IM stationery file, just send me an e-mail request and I will be happy to send it to you.

I hope you all will have a very Happy Valentine's Day next month!

Christmas Nativity


I just finished making this lovely tag by following a frame tutorial by Charlie @ PSP Pals.  It was very fun to do and I love the appearance of the frame.  Hopefully you like it as well.

I hope you and your family enjoy a blessed Holiday season.  Don't forget to thank the Lord for all of His blessings, since every day is a gift from above.

Autumn Tag

Just a quick little tag for my favorite (and shortest) season of the year.

Autumn Teddy Bear

This is the header of an IncrediMail stationery that I recently made.  This is my favorite time of year - Autumn - I love the beautiful colors and the fresh, cool air!

Furry Friends

This is actually one of my PSP Lessons and I think it is really cute so I had to add it here for you to see.  I hope you like it.

Screened Net Giraffe

Screened Net Giraffe

This was a very fun frame to make, which was done by following a tutorial by one of my favorite tut writers, Elly Hoffman of Designs by Elly.  She writes some of the best stationery tuts and they are always very easy to follow.  Anyway, I hope you like this cute giraffe as much as I do, I think he is adorable!!!!  I wish I knew who the graphic artist is so I could credit them, as he/she did a fantastic job.

I hope you like this pretty flower pot with the cute bird!  It was really fun to make -- I made the backgrounds and the round frame for the flower image, as one of  my PSP lessons from Stepping Stones Through PSP.

Beautiful Birds of Spring

I just couldn't resist these beautiful birds for today's lesson.  I just love hearing them sing their beautiful songs, especially in the morning as I wake up.  They just sound so cheerful and my kitty is entertained by them all day and night, LOL!  Spring is my very favorite time of year and unfortunately it is also the shortest time of year so it is very important to enjoy every moment of it.

I hope you are all getting ready for a nice long holiday weekend - hopefully we will have nice sunny weather!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find something you like :)

Pink Ladies Frame - Yellow Birds

I am so happy about how this turned out that I just had to post it here right away.  This was a frame challenge in one of my PSP groups and the tutorial for it was very well written and easy to follow.  This makes me think of Spring, which I hope is going to come and stay soon -- it sure is nice today (60 degrees!).

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you like some of my tags and will return soon!
