Deep breath, and here we go...

I have been asked to join a select group of crafters.  I am NOW officially a 'dewette' and will create for ScrappyDew!!!!!!!!  I am on cloud 9.  Now gang, this is not to be confused with a 'rockette'.  I mentioned to Michelle ( that I could be a 'rockette' once. Then I would be in traction for 6 months, those high kicks are killers.  So happy to share this news, and it's not going to be just cards.  I have a few designs up my sleeve that will knock your socks off!  So lets get this party started!

We own a machine shop and an employee of ours had his neck fused in two places yesterday.  (he was just living life to fast when younger)  So I of course wanted to make a get well card.  I don't know if you also do this but I customize my cards to the person it is going to.  Maybe a special color, subject or occasion.  With that in mind, here's the lyrics.
  • ScrappyDew Get Well Soon and Yorkies #4 files
  • Dark Blue The Shimmer Stack DCWV
  • Lt. Brown & Tan Core'dinations Safari pk.
All other scraps are probably Recollections (but don't hold me to it)

Now me just being me, I had to be able to get some sort of glitter on this card.  I had a Color Bok Earth Tones pad that had the paper I used for the walls.  It Sparkles!  I think it makes a wonderful wall paper.  The rug was a challenge for me.  I wanted a braided rug but I couldn't figure out a way to braid paper.  So instead I cut out the main rug, then cut 1/4 slits through it right up to the top.  The light green is Mulberry paper that I found on clearance at Joann.  I cut 1/8th inch strips and wove them threw the dark green mat.  Just a word of wisdom, needle nose tweezers are one of my best crafting tools.  The rest of the card is pretty normal.  The dog at the foot of the bed is Monte Carlo (shop dog and usually in the grease)  Oh Oh, did you see the neck brace?  That was made out of a BandAid.  This inside of this card has a sheet of paper that matches the sheets on the bed.

So glad you could spend a few minutes with me.  I love sharing my work.  Please be careful this 4th of July holiday.  Fireworks and picnics are fun, but remember the actual reason for this holiday.  We are so fortunate to live in a free country. Thank you to all our service men and women.  You're the reason our country is so great!

With many bright blessings,  Jana

  3. Thank you Beth and Michelle. Your comments warm my heart!

  4. Aw Sis~ Congratulations!! I am so happy for you! Dewette! ~ such a lovely title and I am one well deserved. I do hope your friend recovers quickly. I had a spinal fusion a number of years ago at Walter Reed Army Medical Center ~ the doc put a collar on me because he has a lot of trouble with his military patients ~ we don't let a little thing like a spinal fusion slow us down...and I didn't! I painted all the crown molding (ten foot ceilings); custom painted the tray ceiling in the dining room, made roman shades (and the list goes on), my thirty days of convelescence leave was some of my most productive. Love you Sis and am so very proud of you! XOXOX
