Beautiful

 Here's a wonderful image and some stunning Turkish lace.  I made this card for the current contest on the YSBP blog.  The sponsor is Lizzy Love (Oddball Arts) and there is a great prize for the winner.  Please join in and share your latest and greatest creations this month with us!

I can't believe we are just a week to the end of Sept!  Wow, the first six weeks of school is almost up.  Pretty soon we will be hitting nine weeks and hopefully will not have any "leveling" (for those of you outside of the education industry, that's when the schools decide if there are TOO few or TOO many teachers in a certain place so they take away teachers or add teachers to certain schools, a shocking change for both teachers and students at nine weeks into the school year!)

Thanks for being my person

Here's a sweet dog theme card using a great stamp from The Cat's Pajamas Rubber Stamps plus some great Turkish lace that I got last summer (2020).  The sentiment and sentiment die cut are from Taylored Expressions.  I thought it went perfectly with this cute image.

Hoping you are all having a great week!

Coffee or Carrots?

Thought we would start out the week with a little coffee image, but somehow the coffee has been replaced with a cute rabbit and carrot.  Hmmm.  Well, still, start your week out with some coffee.  Yum. Coffee and a little Turkish lace?

Yep that combo sounds right, TURKISH coffee and TURKISH lace!  two things you know I love, lol!!

Check me out on Instagram   https://www.instagram.com/holleybarnhart/ 

so you wanna see what the winners got?  Here's the photos of the prizes, each person received 10pcs of Turkish lace in assorted sizes and colors, each pc is 18" long (so enough for about 3 cards if they are 6in wide each);for my metric friends, which is basically the whole world, minus America, these are just short of 1/2  a meter long, the whole length is not shown in the photo.  Total of each pack is 5 yards worth.

so as not to spoil the surprise, I don't know WHICH person (Suz or Gaye) gets which pack, i just put a pack in each envelope and mailed it, so they are still up for a surprise :)

                                                                            Pack 1

 
    
                                                                            Pack 2


so at the end of the day, I am thinking about mailing up some packages like these and selling a few. I can do 5yard packs (10pcs 18in each) or 5 yard packs (5 yards, 1 yard pcs).   lol, gotta fund some of that travel in order to get MORE lace, lol!!

what do you guys think?  I am thinking around $5 per pack with maybe a a fun suprize or extras if you get more than one pack.  Should I take photos of the packages?  should they all be a surprise?  should I leave them as all mixed colors?  packs with just white, just off white?  just black?  I doubt any will likely be the same, lace come in small bundles and I use some of it, so I don't often have more than a couple extra yards of each kind.  

I would love to hear your feedback.

Bunny

Sharing this CAS card today using a sweet image from Unity stamps some layers of cardstock and some simple lace from Turkiye.  I just love the different pinks on this card, so maybe it's almost monochromatic too.  Hmmm.

Good days

Even though this week starts a day later due to the holiday, I figured we all needed some coffee for sure.  I wish I knew which cute set this was from but alas I pulled it out of the bag and I don't know.  Sigh.  If you know, please tell me.  I of course, had to add some lovely Turkish lace to it.

Guest Designer Becca Y

Here's a stunning card that I received from artist Becca Y.  I just love her gorgeous image and the beautiful background that she created.  It's so much lovelier in person esp because of the glimmer in the background and the colors of the sequins.  Thank you so very much Becca!

You mean the WORLD

Grumpling kind of day

I thought it was time for something funny, especially now that I have been back in the school for a month, well, almost a month.  It says "I HEART mythical creatures: unicorns, dragons, the yeti, children who are quiet."  HA!  Don't you love the Taylored Expressions Grumplings?
