Crafting the Flowers with Ink

A friend of mine is doing a series of photos of Victorian Christmas' through this whole month. It is "eye candy" for sure. So won't you please go visit her at Aunt May's Cottage.

I found the most incredible ink the other day at Joanns Fabrics and decided to try it on a white cardboard rose. This project is just super simple if you want to make them for attaching to gift packages. Just dust the ink over the leaf and voilĂ  it's colored. Go back here to learn how it begins. Even if the card stock tears it will still turn out just fine.


My granddaughter's kitty, Hugs. Hugs needs a diet for sure. He is one BIG kitty, I tell ya. He followed Love Bunny around just waiting for him to drop a piece of meat or a pancake with syrup or a piece of bread. Hugs will eat anything!

Please, please, don't believe what they tell ya; I'm one hungry kitty, gramps!! They're trying to starve me.


  1. We have a kitty that is similar, almost twenty pounds, he is! Your grandkitty is beautiful, though...those EYES!

  2. Oh, what a beautiful kitty! My dogs always act like they are starving...but we know better!
