A Displaced Snowman, a Heavy Metal Zombie, and Some Easter Eggs

It was a Dilly Beans kind of morning. I checked the Dilly Beans Challenge and saw the theme was Easter; then I found a new challenge called the Corrosive Challenge and they are being sponsored by Dilly Beans this week. So glad I found a new reason to use my oh so fun Dilly Beans images.

My first card is for the Easter Dilly Beans Challenge:

I used my fav snowman image - probably the last time I get to use him until I start my Christmas cards (but you never know...). My papers are all SU!, the North to Alaska strip was typed and then distressed, and the snowflake looking thing in the bottom corner is from K&Co. I added a bunch of Stickles and fake stitches.

It is my belief that snowmen never die, they just go to Alaska and wait for Winter to come back down South. (If you can't read my sentiment, it says: Every year when that bunny comes, I am forced to move to Alaska and reinvent myself...stress kills!)

My next card is for the Corrosive Blog Challenge which is all about Heavy Metal (Corrosive146). I have my Dilly Beans Zombie Girl image anchored in with 4 pieces of metal hardware. I used Rock Star paper as my background.

Since tomorrow is Easter and this blog is about what is on my kitchen counter, I thought I would share with you something I have in my curio cabinet in my kitchen.

These eggs were painted by a friend of mine, Barbara Black. She is a wonderful artist and she painted these Emu eggs to raise money at our church. I purchased one, she gave me one, and a friend of mine gave me one before she passed away. I have had them for years, and I think they are best kind of Easter Eggs.

Yesterday, I saw a church sign that read: "The world's saddest and happiest days were only three days apart." I love statements like this.

Easter Hugz to all!!!

  6. Those emu eggs are amazing! Tell your friend she has such a gift. :)

    I adore that frazzled snowman, and I like the untraditional colors you used for him. Love the sentiment! The zombie girl scares me, I'm just sayin'. ;)

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
