Thinking Spring Green

Friday we took Broccoli for his check up at the Vet. He's fine. After we took him back home we went shopping. I stopped at Michael's & bought the Hot fix iron for the crystals. I also got 4 boxes of crystals.
We also went to Costco, & I found a comfortable chair to put in my sewing room.

In the mail, I got 2 ATC's. This one was from Janine in France,
& this from Micki. I love the textures & both being green, inspired me with thoughts of spring green,
so that's what I used, to make this postquard for a trade with Terri.
& a birthday quard for Hope.
We went & had dinner with the Meyn family to celebrate Hope's birthday.She was very excited over her card.
The other thing we did this weekend, is we went to the movies last night. We did another double feature, & saw both 'Meet The Robinsons', & 'The Last Mimzy'. Both movies were a lot of fun. Really good clean fun, happy, family flicks. I loved both enough to want to have copies for my movie collection.

So do you think the crystal iron is essential? I want to put crystals on my Hoffman Challenge piece but I opted to not buy the hot-fix iron. Now I'm second-guessing myself.

Love the chair. And the ATCs of course.

Can't wait to see what you do with the crystals. The card you've made for me looks wonderful, can't wait to see it in person. BTW, your's is getting mailed today.

I can't wait to see what you do with the crystals either. I never realised before that you could 'hot fix' them!
Love the cards, the ones you received and the ones you made. Especially like the one for Terri with the dragon fly. Very nice touch.

A new toy! What fun! I look forward to seeing what you create with it. Love the gorgeous card you made, and your gifts are lovely, too.

Any hint of spring around your area yet?
PS_ love those little purses in the previous entry!

I am glad you liked the ATC. Your postquard is lovely. Wonder what you are going to do with all those crystals.

Love your postcards. In Paducah, a couple of years ago the winning quilts all had the crystals. The add another beautiful visual texture to a quilt.

The cards are adorable! I love my crystal wand. I don't think you'll be sorry.
