fine feathered (for a) friend....

hey y'all!!
I think I may be out of my funk..
I sat down and made a few cards this weekend...
anyhoo... I made this necklace for a friend who had some surgery and was feeling pretty YUCK
she's all nature and crunchy granola so I thought the natural coulours and the feather was right up her ally
 promise to be back soon with some cards!

This week at LRW was all about Holiday tags!!

I had the honor of participating in Roseanne's tag swap again this year!!
Had a great time with 18 lovely crafty ladies!!

I used a lagre maya road bottle cap,
layered some paper with nesties
bleached a bottle tree, added gesso, paint
and a pile of different glitter
let me say 18 was ALOT of work!!
so fun though
