Happy Hump Day....

Hello Everyone...Hope you are all doing well this evening!!! I'm rather late on getting my blogpost done....but I was determined to get it completed before I went to bed this evening....I spent the afternoon tweeking my blog and my ARTHaven....Always something to tweek in our rooms isn't there!! ;)
I thought I would share with you a tag I created a few weeks back for a Patriotic Tag Swap I was involved in.....the vision I had for this tag actually came through into the finished product so I was quite happy!!! Here's the  tag....


There is alot of dimension in this tag and I just absolutely love how it turned out...I created a grungy star stencil with my Silhouette Cameo so That I would create star texture on the base of my watercolor paper.....once that dried I pulled out some water colors and did the red at the top and blue at the bottom.....dried with my heat gun then used some red and blue distress ink to give a touch more color to the 2 areas.....added fun foam to the back of the watercolor paper and then adhered that to the red cardstock...and attached both of those to the blue cardstock....added some of the stencil cutouts of the stars to the white layer for another layer on the card....added and eyelet to the top of the tag....used Mixed Media Adhesive to add the metal embellishments and the button.....I cut the banner label with my Silhouette Cameo as well as the phrase "Let Freedom Ring!!" with black mat vinyl. Added a bow to the top and fibers.....this turned out to be quite a nice card and I'm very happy with  it!!!

So....I have a question....I am contemplating joining a stamp/card kit club of some kind.....just not really sure what's all out there.....Would some of you please give me feedback on what your favorite ones are??? I know I don't like the childish/cuteish images....I don't want to jump into several all at once...I'd really like to dip my toe in and see if it's something that will bring me joy....know what I mean.....I watch alot of Youtube videos of the amazing fun so many of you have with these kits....I've just never jumped on that bandwagon as of yet.....So...please let me here from you.....

I would also love to hear what you think of my tag........As always...THANK YOU so very much for stopping by and visiting with me...Means more than you know...I wish you all a very blessed week...and hope to see you again very soon!!! Until next time...

A Wedding Album

Hello Everyone.....Hoping this post finds you all still doing well!!!
So I'm EXCITED to share this post with you...I have had SO MUCH FUN creating the project I'm sharing with you today.....I have a co-worker who married back in March......I wanted to create a Wedding Album for her and her husband...but of course I had to wait until I had the inspiration to do so....my mojo has been on hiatus for so long!!!
Well....it FINALLY has come back...and I actually completed their Wedding Album and I LOVE how it turned out!!!  I decided to do a reveal video so you can see all the interaction in the album...then I'm also sharing pictures below.....I sure hope you'll take a bit to view it....I must admit I'm proud of how it turned out.....
The Video did break down into 2 videos since it's been SO LONG since I've uploaded a video......they are both posted below...




And here are the stills of the album...I have put them in their own album so you can click on the image and it will take you to the album for all of them....



So...what did you think??? Isn't it so pretty!!! Like I said above...I'm very proud of it....and truly enjoyed creating this piece!!!
I am SO ready to be creating again...so I hope you will check back often....I have some other things I've created of the past couple months I plan on posting....but it may be a day or so....not sure yet....
I would like to THANK YOU ALL for stopping by and I wish you all a very blessed week ahead!!

A New Beginning....

Hello Everyone.....Hoping this post finds you all following back to my blog here on blogger!!  Because I am going to do my best in becoming creative again...which is to include updating my blog on a regular basis.....I find it would end up costing me to do that with Wordpress because of the limited space issues with the free version of their blog setup......As I am doing this more for pleasure I do not want to incur any charges for that......
So...I've decided to come back to blogger.....HOWEVER...Wordpress does not play nicely in giving a file format that Blogger can read correctly to move my posts back over to blogger.....so if you are interested in any of my older posts...I'll have to as that you go back to my Wordpress Blog here:
https://pennyduncancreations.wordpress.com
From today forward however....all new posts will be done through blogger as I'm not limited to space.
So come back VERY soon...as I'm working on a blog post right now!!!
Thank you so much for your visit...Wishing you all a very blessed day!!

Hello and Happy Sunday...

Hello Everyone...Hope you are all doing wonderful!! It's been a bit since I've posted.....just seems to be one thing after another which keeps me side tracked.....

More health issues to deal with....but I'm placing it in the Lord's hands and know HE is in control....

So.....I am proud to say I did a HUGE purge in my ARTHaven....it got to the point I felt so overwhelmed by all the "stuff" I had ...it put a bind in all of my creative mojo I just couldn't deal any longer....I have to admit...this has been a HUGE release for me.....I can honestly say I feel a huge weight has been lifted from me...and it's opening the doors for me to be creative again...so between the purge and the Eco Printer I have....I actually PLAYED this weekend for the first time in MONTHS AND MONTHS and truly had the best time...was very relaxing......I now have the loft as my ARTHaven for my creative space...and the other half space is my youngest granddaughter's play area...

She loves the idea of her area being up here with her Nana....so she can play and I can play and she just has the best time.... ;)

Thought I would share with you a card I made this weekend....I had a lot of fun creating it and had rekindled my love for cardmaking.....








Didn't it turn out soft and romantic???? I just love it....Between my Silhouette Cameo and my amazing printer....I am in heaven!!! ;)

I also created some ATC's for an upcoming swap in a amazing group I'm trio owner of....I'll share a link to the group below in case anyone would like to come over and join us...but....first...here's the ATC's I made today as well....
















Didn't these also turn out pretty...I just love them.....I put Wink of Stella on the butterflies and some Glossy Accents on the body of them....there's a lot of dimension to these as well.....

Thought I would also share a pic of my Tator Tot this morning when she woke up from spending the nite with Nana and Papa...she wanted to play in her area before she went home.....



Ok....now....to the details on the group I'm "Trio-Owner" of....it's called CreatingARTFriendships....we found a new group site called .IO and it's wonderful....so much better then the Yahoo Groups....and we do not like Facebook...so this has become a WONDERFUL solution.....would love to have you come join us if you think you would love to interact with a group of creative ladies who love to chit chat and also swap......



So......that's it for me for the this evening...have an embroidery hoop swap to work on this week...and a washi tape swap as well....don't these swaps sound fun???? We sure would love to have you come over and join us.....we LOVE to chat...did I mention that!!! ;). I would like to thank you so much for stopping by to visit with me.....I hope you enjoyed your stay...and I do hope you'll come by and visit again soon....Wishing you a very blessed week!!! Until next time...
