A dandy good time.

When one has lots of dandelions in their yard, one takes lots of pictures of those dandelions. Taking the pictures isn't enough for me. I must play and alter.

First I took these two pictures.

Then I duplicated the second one several times, twisted and turned each one, erased and played some more. I added it to the first picture and my dandy time was done.

Not all my projects come out the way I planned. I recently was trying a new type of card and have a couple of disasters to show you.
If nothing else I did learn how to do the cut for these. I've seen these called a swing card and also a flip card.

The first one.

Well, I was doing pretty good until I got to gluing on the sentiment. Oops! I guess I should have paid more attention.

Card two.
I used plain white cardstock for this one and thought it looked too plain. Well, everything is better with glitter so I put some glue on the one section and covered it with glitter. I suppose this isn't a total flop but at first, because of the glue that section of the card was laying rather funky. There are also small spots that don't have any glitter on them.

Just to give you an idea of how this card opens up.

Second time around

I finished the jar that I showed you last week and I did another. The second time around I used a smaller jar.
The first jar I finished the top off with jute twine and the second one I used a piece of lace.

If these had a wider mouth on them I would put a glass votive candle holder in the top but they are too small for that. They would have to be used to hold flowers or something else that needs a pretty little container. I've got 2 more jars that are partially painted. I'm not sure if I'll use the same napkins or try something different.

Through a dirty window.

I took these pictures through the nose print art on my front window. These are both in my neighbor's yard.

I don't know what this is but it's pretty in springtime and then later in the year, it gets red berries on it.

I love lilacs and for some reason, I could never get them to grow. All the ones I've planted have died. I'll just enjoy the neighbors instead. I wanted to go over and smell them. I just love the scent of lilacs.
Question: In the top right corner, do the lilacs look like a butterfly or a heart to you? First I thought heart then decided more butterfly.
