In my garden

Gilli in the garden

Can you believe this I’m still working on getting better. I do not like this. My sore throat is better but I’m still horse when I talk so I try not to talk but still pretty weak. I take a medication for my arthritis that make it hard for me to fight off any kind of infections but this is the first time I have been sick since I have been on this medication. I’m not sure this is the right thing for me. I’m going to have to have a talk with my Rheumatologists. Enough about that.

Over at Color Me Creative we have a new Challenge #24 starting August 7 and ending August 19, 8:00pm EST. The challenge is FRIENDSHIP, we would like you to color you embellishments to match your card with your copic markers. This challenge is open to anyone who loves to colors with copic markers just stop by and check us out. Our sponsor for our challenge is Gilli, if you would like to stop by and see what stamps  Gilli Rubber Stamps has pleas do. The Gilli I used is called Renaissance Gilli.


My butterflies, they are called Exotic Butterfly (small) set of 3dies, Frangipani (Plumeria)  with leaves die, English Tea Party Doily die, are all from Cherry Lynn Designs. I have a circle cutter I used to cut out my image, sorry I do not know who makes it. The gems I used I colored them with B37 copic marker.

The ribbon I colored with B37 copic marker. I also made a pin using 1-10mm, and a pearl 1-5mm pearl with a 1-3mm Swarovski Crystal. My top bead is called a coin bead but I can’t remember what the name of that bead is. I do not have any of the cheep beads. I thought they looked nice together. This is a nice way to use some of my beads also.

I sponged around with distress ink color Tea Dye.

Have a good week. The weather man says it is going to cool down but that is what he said last week and it did not cool down. So we will see. Be safe everyone. Until next time.
