A Little bit of This & That.

Hello blogging friends!  For today's blog post I have a little bit of this and that to share with you.  I have some beautiful artwork to share with you--but it's not mine.  I have some artwork from my aunt Gail to share with you!  Gail doesn't have a blog and she doesn't do FB either so I am very excited to be able to share some of her work with all of you.  

Here is a little wedding ensemble that Gail made.  I think this is so Gorgeous!!  The sweet little set includes the amazing little high heeled and pearl embellished shoes, the gift box and enclosure card.

Here is a close up of the shoes so you can see all of the details.

The little shoes and card fit just perfectly in the gift box.

Look at this beautiful little sun bonnet!  I tell ya, Gail is just amazing!!  She stopped by one day to show me a little prototype of this bonnet and it wasn't long when she stopped back to show me what she had whipped up.  I LOVE these flowers!!  And look at the gorgeous, deep and crisp embossing detail!!  She used a plastic doily and the Grand Calibur to achieve the embossing.  

Here is a close up of the beautiful flowers.  Love the pearl centers and the pretty stickpin!

Gail also misted the entire bonnet with pearl glimmer mist.  It was so pretty and shimmery!

Ok, now I have a couple of things to share.  ;-) 

I am happy to share that I had a card published in the October 2012 issue of Crafts 'N Thing.  
Spread Your Wings page 36

I also have a card that was published in the November 2012 issue of CardMaker.
Give Thanks page 38

I have one last thing to share with you today.  About a month ago Gail and I went to a couple of garage sales and let me tell you we totally scored at one of the sales!!

Look at all of this gorgeous lace!!!  Some of it was newer but most of it was vintage lace and trims.  We bought it ALL and then we came back here to my place and split it up.  This picture is my half!!  We were both so excited--just like two little girls in a candy shop!!  LOL!!

Well, I guess that's it for today.  I am so happy to be able to share some of Gail's artwork here on my blog and I hope you enjoy seeing it.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
