Weekly Challenge ` s

I`m a member of Etsy Cottage Style , and
joined a group for mixed media & paper arts .
The past few weeks Sherry had started a
Fun Friday Challenge on there , choosing
items / words , to create something , whatever
you wished , as long as the chosen subject for
that week was incorporated in it .

This weeks was
Sea foam and Brown .

This is my contribution .
An altered matchbox .
From a free wallpaper sample ,vintage lace
organza ribbon and a brad , on the outside .

The inside has a sleeping / resting Angel image ,
dotted vintage music paper around the sides ,
and a millenery flower and a butterfly .

Last weeks challenge was Roses .
" As Timeless As A Rose "

Matt board covered with vintage music paper ,
gesso and paints . Then an acrylic applique with
tiny seed beads swirled in .

With a fabric rose in the center ,
to show the 3 D effect .

And because Sherry is going on

vacation later today . I have the task of picking

what we do for the next couple of weeks .

Finally - Sherry - i know i`ve sent you a

personal message . Guess it wasn`t as much

of a surprise than i thought it would be ! LOL !

But have a wonderful time , relax , have a drink -

or three ! Shop `til you drop ! Of course tons of

photos !

I will miss you !!

And see you when you get back !!

Your creations are lovely -- whether spurred on my a challenge or just from your own creative muse.

I can't wait to come back and see what challenges you set for the group.

thanks for the good wishes -- a few drinks and relaxation are definitely on the list of things to do...and I will most definitely be taking LOTS of photos xo

Carolyn, Your matchbox is dreamy.
So you carry it around in your purse so you can look at it for an a little pick-me-up during the day? Note to self: buy matches so I can alter the little boxes.

All I can say is what word popped into my head as my mouth fell open, "WOW"! Your work is incredible! Can't wait to join in once I return from my drink or 3 or 5 LOL!

Love and miss!

Gosh, Carolyn, you can make the most lovely creations from the simplest things. Such a creative gal you are! Sorry I haven't been by lately...lots of yard work. Hope all is well with you.
