Finally I can say what the big secret is....

This month was my ATC challenge at
and to kick off the new year in a huge BANG!!!!
I had a Claudine Hellmuth inspired ATC challenge. Claudine even made three ATC's for us to post and stopped by and left comments on the DT work.
She was so wonderful and I can't say thank you enough for her joining us.
You can see Claudine's work EVERYWHERE and her products are carried at all Craft stores.

Having fun at Starbucks

Really like the way this Starbucks was decorated

This was a really cool Starbucks in Las Vegas. I loved the writing on the walls. And of course I had to have my picture taken with the hottest guy in Vegas

From my wonderful friend BarbraJoan

Barbra Joan

Barbra Joan is a wonderful artist make sure you take time to check out her work

From my dear friend and art partner Patti

Wow I was totally gobsmacked today when this was in the mail. Patti
sent this canvas to me as part of our pick a theme and send an altered art item. This month it was her choice she chose altered canvas. If you check out her blog you will see she just got over a horrible time! her art studio caught fire and she lost everything!
With all the terrible times she was still able to create this beauty. Thank you Patti I love it

Today's ATC's

My little gargoyle fairies...... Rick took this picture while we were in Russia so I printed the picture out and then cropped the portion I wanted to use and made it into ATC sized.
I added the adorable fairies from and there you have it. MY Oblivious Fairies I had purchased the cricut cartridge ornamental iron and just had to try it out. I made these windows and used them on this atc.

I got these images from www.lisas


1914 This ATC I used an old found receipt dated 1914. I love old antique shops and flea markets. This is an ATC I made using rubber stamps
