inchies, ATC cards and tags oh my

I have to say I am really getting into making these little pieces of art.  I guess I had better, because I still need to make 100 or so more.  They are a bit addictive.  I am having a ton of fun creating them;  so, hopefully you don't get to tired of seeing them. 

Here are the lastest creation from this weekends play. 

This tag is for a friend of mine who loves gypies.  I love the look of the dancers  They are on black velvet background.   I hope she enjoys it.
This ATC card is a gift to a very good friend of mine, Elena who just recieved the best gift of all; a brand new granddaugher.  If you are looking to see a very inspiring blog I highly suggest you stop by.
This next ATC is for another friend who has done some amazing things with her life.  On of which is she wrote a book which is amazing by the way Collage Couture: Techniques for creating fashionable art  You can also check out her blog at
Take the time to check it out it really is very inspiring place to stop by. 

So that is it for now.  With winter coming quickly and with it the holidays, I am hoping to make time to create as much of my holiday decorations and gifts as possible.  Instead of worrying about not having enough money I am going to see what I can create.  It should be an interesting proccess. 

Let me know what you will be doing when it comes to the holidays.  Have fun
Before you go, I would like to share a good quote I found on my favorite new site

What I have created this week

Well things have been a bit busy in my corner of the world.  I have been on several call outs with search and rescue and while on one of them my dog was injured.  He is quite the drama queen. 

He hit the side of his jaw so hard that it knocked a tooth almost out.  There was blood everywhere but I could not find an open wound so I wiped him up and after getting off the mountain put him away to rest.  Once I got home he still acted funny so called the vet to have him checked out.  Since he was there I also had them clean his teeth.  Good thing I did because that is how we found out about the tooth.  The tooth practically fell out I was told.  He got a shot and was sent home. 

This is how Murphy behaved once home.  He did not get to eat the first night; his life was over.  You would of thought he had major surgery or something.

How pathetic is this?   This particular show was put on the next evening.  Don't let these pictures fool you.  Right before this he eat like he had been starved; then danced and jumped at me trying to talk me into taking him to either play ball or train.  When the answer was NO!!  He got on the couch and acted like this for about an hour.  Then proceeded to really increase the drama.  He added sound affects.  Lots, whimpering, huffing and so on.  Lord save me.  I finally gave the ship up and went to bed. 

Now onto what I was able to accomplish on the art front.  I did some inchies (which are not a fav) and am in a swap with tags.  The tags have to have fabric and include a Tim Holtz die cut or stamp. 

This is only the start.  I believe I have over 50 to make.  But, will take my time and see what happens.

This is the tag I created for the swap.  It has Tim Holtz bird cage.  I covered the tag with red
velvet and added lace that I colored using tattered angels.  It was fun to make.  But, not sure how I feel about the red velvet. 

I hope all of you are having a wonderful fall.  The holidays will be here before you know it.  I am already thinking of what I can make as Christmas gifts.  Best get busy; I cannot believe how fast everything is moving.  Have a great day; create something beautiful
