The Last CCC, What A Ride!

It was just like yesterday that I joined in at Linda's blog, to play along in the Compendium of Curiosities, and all good things must come to an end they say.  What's neat about this 35 lessons, is not only what I have learned, but the friends I've met along the way!  Thank you Linda, this was so much fun, and thanks also to Tim, for his sharing, caring and lessons.

This last lesson is about the "details", and I put them all in this last piece.  The dress form is from one of Tim's newest releases, Haberdashery, and the wings are stamped with Reflections. I've stamped and opened buttonholes,  stamped the zigzag stitches from Wendy's stamps, adding Enamel Accents here and there- part of a pattern piece, measuring tape, netting and doodads.  Normally I'd say it's a bit much....but I just had to do it all for this last tag.

 
A little birdie told me that Linda has something new coming up, I'll be anxious to play along.  Thanks for stopping by, somehow I just didn't feel like stamping this past week....hugz and more.....

Girlfriend, your Grand Finale art is MAGNIFICENT! I could look at this for hours-- the colors are so vibrant and the design is just gorgeous. You rocked the Design Details challenge. Check out that stitching! I love the sweet, ethereal skirt you created with the netting, too.

I'm so glad you're excited about The Next Chapter! Me, too-- I can't wait to spill the deets! Thank you for being such a wonderful part of the CCC-- your inspiration AND your friendship are gifts I appreciate every day!

Hi Gerrie,

When one window closes...another opens! This piece is great! I love the skirt! The colors on this are my favorites! I love the stitching on the side reminds me of doing up a corset! The wings are beautiful! And, I love to use buttons as embellishments! This is a wonderful piece. You are so creative, my friend!

I am sure you will find another activity to become a part of! Be well.

He IS Able,
Traci S.
