Very Little is Need for a Happy Life

Sorry, I haven't been around much my dear friends. Our daughter was visiting and we spent 12 days laughing, eating, drinking and having a great time. We even went to visit  St Simons Island and checked out the beaches and tiny shops. We stayed in a historic 1930 hotel, where our room was named for a famous St Simon resident called William Hazzard. This is funny because coincidentally our street is named after him too!

I am showing a sweet tag  I made awhile ago. It's background was stamped and then watercolored. The image was watercolored too. Some black glitter fleur d'isle an organza rose, some black tulle and Dresden scrap were the accents. The hand cut sentiment reads "Very little is needed to make a happy life."

Hope you are having a happy week, we sure did!
take care, Gerri

Sweet Fairies song

Today for Retro Cafe Art I've created a sweet ATC. I love the ATC size it's big enough to add a lot of detail but not too big to take too much  time to make. Now that I work full time, I don't always have to time to create, so these are just right for me. I really like the color combination of pink and gold for this one too!

To make this I started by layering gold and then pink marbleized paper. Under the RCA 3 Pane Rounded ATC frame I glued the Debrina Pratt dancer images . I added their wings with gold paint! There is a Stickled crown cut out in the top window. Gold Stickle dots, water color paint and tiny pink and red rhinestones trim the entire piece. The RCA cut words  were used to make the sentiment which says " Sweet Fairies Song".

Hope you hear a sweet song this week.
Take care, Gerri
