Funny--This isn't what I had in mind but it has turned out nice-----The bottom pic is the back with my lil Victorian note paper and my spot to sign my name etc--I always like my back to look nice too!! Got that from my mom --I guess-- who always said -- the inside or back side of whatever you make --should be just as nice as the front----

Have another charm swap due andhere is my first try for the pearl and alexandrite challenge---Have the pearls and look-a-like alexandrite (goodness is that an expensive stone ----TO GET FOR REAL!!!!)--I Googled it--- to see if I was on the right track!!hmmmm and hard to find any substitutes------ anyway ---- Put it the large charm dangle--- then will have two smaller hanging charms on the side ---The glimmering colors on the tag ( I made) didn't want to photograph well--as did the supposedly alexandrite beads --- which are also glimmering types--couldn't find any smaller substitutes for the alexandties-- and so had to go with the larger pearls --Luckily--small charms to dangle on the end--- aren't as hard to find! I am sure all the bead-ers and jewelry makers would know just where to go for all this --- but ----Since I do this on a whim---- every now and then---- I have to rely on my Google friends!!! Now for the hard part---for me at least---- Trying to make the other tags the "same"....I am still trying to climb out of my OOAK BOX!! Could be my artist A DD that makes me want to make just ONE of EVERYTHING--- Ya know --I do one-- and tire of it ---and want to go to the next thing!! But I am trying!!!!!!!WOnt say I will ever get into a production mode but I AM TRYING!!heh heh!!

Anyways--Lots of horse shows etc coming up-- for Kami and lots of music gigs for Kevin-- !!Too many projects for me--but then --that is how it runs-- for everyone nowadays it seems!! Anyway here is the card (one of 9 or ten that is)to be made!!,, I have decided to draw again!!! Still not gathering stamps--which would be so much easier--- but long story behind that -- and TMI soo I did a bunch of shrink plastic for a Christmas swap--then hid the stuff--to rest up from it for awhile and always forget I have it ---for awhile anyway hihi-Wish I didn't get bored so easily-- and get one whole project done before I start another-- My bad!!! I have another charm swap and a Victorian bridal swap and TMI--so I better get going here--Stopped to go see Snow White and the Huntsman last night--Surprise--the guys decided to go with us..Never told us if it was because it was a dark adaptation of the the old fairy tale--or maybe the pretty ladies in it??HEH HEH the guys werent so bad either !!We have quite a few we would like to see-- but don't always pick up and run like last night-Anyway I am rambling on here---Have to decide if I am going with the family to an event or staying home and finishing up some projects????????
