Oui, oui!!

Hello Friends!

Ah, another Freebie Friday and Pink Saturday.
Hope you are all keeping cool,
with all the heat waves across the country.

I do have a couple of projects to share with you.
First up is a "jeweled matchbox and altered domino set"
that I made for a swap in my Marie group:

I layered a couple of metal ornaments and embellished with
crystals and rhinestones and a porcelain rose. 
I think I've been holding onto that porcelain rose since the 1990s, lol,
but I think this is the perfect project for it.
I used glossy accents on both images.

And here is another OUI banner I made for a
swap in our Paper Soiree group:

I love making these banners out of bits and scraps,
and they make up pretty quickly using the Sizzix banner die.
Some pink glittered letters and silver fleurs de lys, gems, tulle, lace,
and crinkled seam binding!! 
Our meeting is Wednesday so I'll have some bits to share about that!

Here's a couple of freebies with a little bit of a bug theme going on:
ladybugs and dragonflies!
Speaking of bugs, I sure do miss those summer lightning bugs/fireflies.
What do they call them where you live?
We just don't even have them in So California.

Lots of links to lovely pinks at Pink Saturday.
Party on at a very pinteresting party at Tutus and Tea Parties!

Thanks for visiting, and have a great weekend!

Happy Pink Saturday.

Cute cute crafted items, adorable ladybugs, and lovely dragonflies. I helped myself to the freebies. Thank you. I am enjoying having the woman at the beach (from last PS) on my laptop photo displays.

When I saw your matchboxes, I couldn't help but think of these boxes I learned to make. Perhaps one day I'll post about that. I still have the one I learned with. Not that it's old, sometime back in the mid-90's, just that it's getting pretty beat up from opening and closing now and then for the pattern.

I mentioned your blog on my Pink Saturday post.

Enjoyed my visit again! Thanks again for the freebies (this and last week).
Happy Pink Saturday!
