Country Creations Furniture

My husband is just starting to build his inventory, but here are a few examples of his beautiful work. The first is a walnut farm table. This thing weighs a ton and will last for generations.

The other two photos are of some end tables he designed and handcrafted. They are made of air dried cherry wood. They have great character, lots of worm holes. The photos don't do them justice.

Oriental Dreams

This will be my last card for a while. I have purses and Valentine treats to make. My daughter calls this card my prettiest one yet. I designed this for The Play Date Cafe's challenge #15. The image is from a library book that was torn up and being discarded. I hope I didn't ink so much that it drowned the rich colors. The card itself is a very dark green and under the image of the lady and "dream" is teal.


My niece always used the word "Twitterpated" for animals that seemed "in love". Bambi uses the word in the Disney movie. So when I saw this sticker I knew this little bird from Stretch Your Imagination would be a perfect match for it. I made this card for Cricut Cardz challenge #11. It calls for a Valentine's Day card without hearts. I love the way it turned out.

Sweet Baby Girl

I created this card for both the Crafty Creations challenge "Wings" and the Creative Inspirations challenge "Pink and Cream". This is an s-fold card. I stamped the image and colored it with water colors. I love this stamp, I found it at a thrift store for $2!

Bunny Basket - Thinking Spring!

So, we have 8 inches of snow here right now and 6 more one the way. And I'm thinking Spring! I created this for the BB2 challenge using the rabbit from Winter Woodland. I wanted some Easter grass to put in it, but I wasn't going to go out in the storm to search for some. I used an empty herbal tea box for the base. I was hoping for a chocolaty bunny look. And of course he had to have a fuzzy tail.
