I adore You

Here's a gorgeous image from artist Sherri Baldy.  This cutie is Img 929.  We are starting a new contest over on the SSS Challenge blog and the theme is Anything Goes + Embossing (Wet or Dry).  If you love the besties, I hope you will drop by over there and play!  Her images are just stunning.


What other crafting hobbies do you like?  jewelry making?  scrapbooking?  Book making?  paper making?  origami? quilting? polymer clay?

For me, I do a lot of jewelry making, mostly for the church and Christmas gifts.  I have done some polymer clay projects and taught classes in poly clay.  I do scrapbook, but only special trips or occasions.  I am about 89% cardmaking and 11% other crafts nowadays.  I also do crafts for the kids at my church and sometimes teach classes for the ladies at church as well.

Have you seen the winner list?  It's being updated daily now, CHECK HERE!  Also, if you didn't comment on Feb 1st, be sure and go back to that day to comment, prizes are still be drawn from Feb 1st and grand prizes will get drawn from there.

I enjoy mixed media, home décor, acrylic painting, watercoloring, jewelry making, mini books and notebooks and I am in the process of making a Fairy Village complete with lots of houses and am planning to do a Fairy Village set up similar to a model train display once I have a few more buildings done.
I also make fairy doors and put them randomly on the walls and ceilings in my house. The grandchildren (ages 3, 7 and 10) are positive that they will see a fairy coming or going one of these days! I love that they believe! When I did the first fairy door in my craft room Joseph, the 10 year old, saw it first and asked what it was. I explained that Fairies need a door to enter a home and he will spend hours watching the door in hopes of catching sight of one!
Your card is another beauty! I love how you colored her pants!!! See you tomorrow!

My hobbies are wtercolor painting, cardmaking, craft sewing, and reading. Love to use my scraps up by making one-sheet cards. I leave the center bare so I can write a note on it and put scraps/embellishments around the edges. I write notes on these to include with exchanges, card swaps, etc. Trying to reduce my scrap piles.

Gorgeous card Holley, the image is adorable and love the colour. the lace border is stunning. I used to make jewellery but do not seem to have the time anymore so keep myself busy making my cards. Hugs Jennifer xx

Very sweet and lovely soft colouring.
I also quilt, crochet, knit, and at some stage have tried almost every craft known to woman including silversmithing.

All of the Besties images are wonderful. I love what you did with this one, Holley. I have probably tried every craft and did it until something "ooh, shiny" came along. I am currently obsessed with Zentangle (I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher) and coloring, be it for cards, art journals, or just for the sake of coloring. I do knit and spin in the evenings too.

Glennis said...

What a beautiful card. The image is precious. I love sherry's stamps. I do anything I can. I feel the art world is like an ocean of soamy things to learn. I'm just wondering if I will have enough time in my life to learn them all. I have recently been learn how to crochet, making mainly scarfs, but I intend to learn to do lil animals. I also paint, draw, air brush,jewery making, cards, mixed media on canvas, and I am learning etching so I can etch on glass as well as wood burning. I do alot of DIY projects. I want to learn wood carving and so much more.

Karenladd said...

So sweet and adorable...loving all that pink! As for crafting, I scrapbook a little bit (not as much as I used to), but mostly do paper crafts. I've dabbled in just about everything though, soapmaking, crochet, quilting, sewing, needlepoint and embroidery, jewelry..you name it! I'm trying to simplify though because I have too many craft supplies throughout the house and garage!!

Super card - love the image and that lace is to die for!! I mainly do cards and papercraft these days, with a little bit of knitting and crochet in between.xx

DonnaMundinger said...

So pretty in PINK, Holley! Love the embossing. I'd say I'm about at 99% paper crafting. I used to do quite a bit of counted cross stitch, but haven't in ages. xxD

KT Fit Kitty said...

Cute card and my favourite colour! Cardmaking is my only crafty hobby. Barely have time for that sometimes...

Shelley said...

Beautiful card, I love that ribbon. I make cards, books and other paper crafts. I also paint (oils, acrylics and watercolor), love to make mixed media pieces. That's about it these days.

Pat said...

Love your pink and white Bestie card, Holley! I love to water color and create mixed media canvases. I also write poetry.

Susan T. said...

Julie Ann said...

Awesome card love your coloring of the image.

Andree said...

A delightful card Holley. The image is gorgeous and I love the lace.
I mostly do cards but I'm trying to get more involved in mixed media. I even had a play with some clay at the weekend xx

Holley (Tondre) Barnhart said...

Great card as always. I really like the colours. Is the lace at the bottom of the card real lace or a diecut? So far I think this has been one of my favorites next to the vampire looking girl.

L. Tagg said...

Such a cute image! Beautifully colored! As for other crafts...I think I try every craft I see...from beading to making yarn creations. I used to love to sew and making counted cross stitch items but had to give those up because of my eyesight...I was able to extend my ability a bit using magnification but eventually had to give them up completely :( Now I do a lot of papercrafts...both card and book making. I love to create ATCs because of the small size. I think they are the perfect size for experimentation. So pretty much I just love making things and will try any craft or art form!!!

Brooke said...

She's adorable Holley.
I've had many hobbies in my lifetime from Pastel portraits and landscapes, oil painting, decoupage, crocheting, collecting and making 1" miniatures, Phew! and that's only half of them.

vinita jain said...

L. Kent said...

I started with scrapbooking, then later included card making. Only sew when necessary and pretty much dropped the rest of the crafty things I could do because I wanted more time for the scrapbooking.

cebelica said...

This is adorable. I love the lace you used on your card and the image is adorable too. :)

I'm mostly making cards nowadays, but I also enjoy making mini albums and I even make some jewelry every now and then. And I want to learn to crochet! So many things to do, but so little time ...

Hugs! xx

Hi Holley - I have always been a crafty person, even as a kid. I also quilt (my main hobby), card making became an instant gratification hobby for me since making quilts takes so long, scrapbooking, jewelry making (a little attempt).

Cindy van Oorschot said...

a sweet card, other hobbies, would be knitting, beading, and xstitch, mind you not enough time to do them at the moment, so on the back burner for now.

debbie said...

love the pinks you used... other hobbies...reading does that count

Lee Tucker said...

I love how you always make Sherri's images come to life in your cards. You do an excellent job working with these big-eyed images.
My hobbies are wide spread even though I have less time to work on most of them since I stayed watching my 2 youngest grandkids full time a couple years ago. I enjoy making dollhouse miniatures,polymer clay, beading, cross-stitch & embroidery, woodworking, flowers & flower arranging, stamping, painting,coloring, remaking old items, scrapbook, paper crafts of all kinds, crafting with the kids & more.

Kathy said...

Lovely card, the lace border is stunning. I also scrapbook semi-regularly. Other hobbies are less productive, although I did make 3 Christmas sweaters this year.

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

She is cute. Love the way you colored the flowers on her hat. As for crafting. I have done a little bit of everything. Right now my main focus has been paper crafting but I am interested in doing some bottle art.
