Received these beautiful dish cloths in return for my Tunisian Stitch Crochet Swap. The administrators of this swap are amazing ladies! They truly go above and beyond their duties that is for sure! My swap partner that received the awesome Tunisian Clutch bag with the embroidered rose I posted earlier, she went mia from the group. No responses, and ditched not just me another member from a swap the month before. You win some you lose some.
The administrators decided to send me something that they made so I would not be empty handed. Vicky Petty is one of them fabulous ladies, and she made me these beautiful dishcloths. They are such a wonderful group to be a part of. I am so thankful I found a group that not only have compassion for others, but also helps me to improve my skills at crocheting. I know if my mother were with me today she would be so shocked at how far I have come with her hobby and all the different items I have crocheted. Feeling very blessed to have this wonderful group.

Here is the Tunisian Crochet stitch clutch I made. This is the second project I have ever made using the Tunisian stitch. I turned my square piece into this adorable little clutch. For some extra flare I added a cross stitch rose, the snap and a handle.
Since I made this item for a Tunisian stitch project swap and I had Mother's Day on the mind, I decided to add some Bath & Body Works Lotion and Anti-Bacterial Hand gel tucked inside.

My first attempt at the Split negative technique. It was all fine and dandy till I realized I did not have the proper color of pink in my embossing powders. Otherwise I am pleased with how it turned out.

I decided while I felt I was gaining some card making mojo back that I would whip another card up for the Digistamps4Joy challenge! For this card, I used up some of the scraps in my paper scrap box, made flowers, added a bow, some buttons to the flowers, a little liquid pearls for the polka dots, and for my bling I added some glitter to the ballerina skirt!

I have been cleaning out some old digi images this is a Dustin Pike image that I had colored up with my copic markers and turned into greeting cards to replenish my card stash that has been dwindling since becoming a pen pal last September. The card for today is using this adorable elephant who I believe is telling us he loves Spring!

I just love this image and have had it colored for years always trying to find the perfect card to place it on. Yesterday, I just let myself go and started creating a colorful card using this image and some old scraps of paper I still had on hand. I cannot bring myself to buy new papers till I use up all I have. When you need certain colors it makes it more difficult to decide where you are heading with your project. Since it has been such a beautiful week of Spring I went with bright flower paper and and flower embellishments. I added the bright sunny yellow bow and a product called liquid pearls for the adorable soap bubbles. The challenge over at Digistamps4Joy is Buttons, Bows, and Bling so I added the extra bling on the opposite corners for a little cheerful sparkle!
Wish me LucK! I also joined these challenges:
