Turn Canvas into a Card!
Well, I'm still on a blog break...but I thought I'd break it up with a post. I know...I'm unconventional.
I do know that a blog break means no posting...but perhaps I don't play by the rules as much as I like to tell myself I do. Lol....Seriously though, I am re-thinking my life a bit, but I still wanted to pop in and say hi! :)
So here's some of what I've been working on.
This is a card....well, sort of....
"True Beauty Lies Within"
.....and there's a beauty!!
A couple of close ups...I apologize for picture quality. I'm going to need a new camera soon.
This is the inside left of the card. A 3-D garden!
The top view...
This is my own creation I call it a 'Canvas Card'.
I also made an envelope that it fit into perfectly, but I forgot to take a picture of it!! Sheesh.
It's really quite easy to make an envelope for this 6X6 canvas...maybe I'll do a tutorial if there's enough interest.
So what else have I been doing? I just HAD to make these!!
Aren't they the cutest little baby shoes you've ever seen in your LIFE??? Seriously!!
I know...odd color for a baby shoe...but I like it!
Pretty pink ones!
These are kind of a dusty rose...
They call these Mary Jane Slippers...I call them 'Lisa Simpsons'. :-)
I'm going to make more....lots more!! I love making baby shoes!
I also crocheted wrist warmers, adorable adult slippers, and a really cool slouchy newsboy hat...but maybe I'll show those another time.
I posted some links on my FB Page to some interesting craft tutorials:

Working mini blinds for a card.
Thanks for stopping by! See you in a while..
