,,, you're special

I made this card for another very special person, the husband of one of my dearest friends.  I'm very grateful for the wonderful friends I have made over the years.
We have snow on the ground here .. very pretty but the city is cold and windy with flurries that don't stay around too long.
Thank you for your visit. I'm hoping you keep warm and safe.  Hugs , Susanne

you're special

Lots of HA stamps here .. made for a very special friend that I've known since we were children.  Not much contrast with the background in this photo but it was late when I took the picture. 

We don't have any snow right now .. it kind of looks like late Fall weather. 

Sending warm wishes to you. Thanks so much for visiting .

You're Sew Special

'You're Sew Special' is the sentiment stamped inside of this little card.  I embossed my cream coloured cardstock and used one of several beautiful French wine labels, a gift I received from my special friend Jacqueline. The stamped image of the pretty blue dress form was cut out, painted with bees wax, polished and attached to the card.  Viola .. :)  
Thank for visiting.  Enjoy this beautiful walking weather .. and keep warm .

Ave Maria , an altered book inspired by Franz Shubert's beautiful opera                      

Ave Maria , a book of prayers , was altered from an old hymn book I found stacked on a shelf in an antique furniture store.  I've added only one small drawing in this book. I've used prayer cards, altered images, found objects, lace, bees wax and made three small beaded roseries which sit in the embedded drawers at the bottom of the book.
Thanks so much for visiting.
