                                             is holding a Christmas sock 

                         So I stenciled a (DreamWeaver)  the background with Glitter gel 

                                      And now I have A card I won't find in December

                                                    Actually none of them have signed to follow 

                                                    Now I am making myself feel neglected 

                                                     My daughter doesn't follow either   😞

                           I AM MAKING COLORS FROM NATURE TO DYE THE COTTON FOR THE                                                                                             PAPER 

                            This is the easy one,no dye just made from sewing pattern tissue not cotton


    Above  is a deep strong peach the photo above is more true to the color Color made from a combination of reds and yellows 

                   Sage  made from foilage is a much darker color that the photo

                           Lilac   turned out beautiful  made from blue purple flowers and beauty berries

                      Pink is stronger in person and it is lovely 

                      Yellow  is the easiest right now since I have many yellow flowers in the yard
