Summer Guest Designer Challenge at Joan's Gardens

It wasn't easy to create a 'winter time' project today when the temperature is 93 degrees outside!!  But it's what came to my mind when I saw what Guest Designer LANA EDWARDS, for Joan's Gardens,  posted as the current challenge.  

 (click image to enlarge)

What a unique way to create flowers ... you'll want to check this out and you can do that by going to Lana's 'Blest With Stamps' Blog.

Here's a little hint:  You use Muslin & Cardboard ... 
did that peak your interest??


 I must admit ... I've been doing a number of 3D type creations lately and I finally decided to create something I can use in MY home.  And, since I love VINTAGE of all types ... a vintage Christmas wall hanging was perfect & a lot of fun!!  Thanks Lana!

ABC Christmas Challenge - "O" Old (my dp is over a year old)
