Tag Tuesday (Late) and Some Other Pretty Stuff

Hi all!  Happy Saturday!  I know I should be outside working on spring cleaning the backyard, but I'm not raking leftover leaves when it's windy.  At least I got the bird feeders full for our chirpy friends!  Didn't Scarlett O'Hara say "tomorrow's another day?"  Well anyway here is my tag for this week's Tag Tuesday  theme.  The theme this week is "Signs of the Zodiac."  I choose to base my tag on my own astrological sign which is Taurus.

I also participated in another challenge at Lunagirl Moonbeams.  The challenge theme is "Spring Chickens."  I used a Lunagirl collage sheet actually called Spring Chickens.  You don't have to use a Lunagirl image, but I always do, because her collage sheets are lovely anyway.

Next are a few fun swaps I participated in.

This lovely Maude Fealy paper doll came from the uber talented, funny and sweet Marie Antoinette.   She let me pick the theme, I kind of have a girl crush on Maude.  I'm sure most off you crafty ladies and gentlemen do too!  I'm in the process of making Marie's doll, It's my first one.......I'm working on it as soon as I post Marie!  I promise!

Isn't she beautiful?

The lovely atc's below are what I received from Kimberly (ArtJoyStuff).  The theme was "Fairy Garden."

From left to right:  Sherry Createology, Amy Yma's Fun and from Jewels Welsh (no blog.)

The next swap I participated in was an Easter swap that Vivian (Vivs-Whimsy) hosted.  My swap partner was Catie An (Catie An & Company).  This beautiful Easter basket is filled with all kinds of goodies.   I just love the bunny and the card below too!

I just love Ms. Bunny, isn't she beautiful?  Catie took a broken bunny and attached everything to a vintage Avon talcum powder can.  How creative!  The card she sent is totally me, so vintage!

Goodies that will be put to good use!

Luscious trims and lace oh my!
