Mosaic Monday, ATC'S and Spooky Monday...

Happy Mosaic Monday! I'm pretty excited for yous to see all the different mosaics I've made this week. I want to thank Mary at Little Red House for being our most gracious and sweet hostess.

First I want to show you the gorgeous ATC that Donna from Brynwood Needleworks made for her 400th Follower Limited Edition Artist Trading Cards Phase II. I'm so honored and excited to have one! It's so beautiful and I just adore it! Thanks so much Donna! All of Donna's work is amazing, if you would like to see some of her pieces please stop in at her fantastic blog. Big hugs to you Donna, I really treasure this!

Here's the ATC I made for Donna in appreciation for the outstanding ATC she had sent to me. I was hoping that this sweet furry one looked like her Lady Kes of Morgan.

 Now these next ATC's I had made for a Getting to know you Swap from one of my Yahoo Groups, Luner Dreams.

These I made for a Autumnal Equinox Swap at a site called: ATC for All.

This next ATC I made for a trade from a wonderful lady, Robin at: Robin's World. Please stop in and say hi to Robin, she's a great person and would love to have you!

Here's the ATC that Robin sent for me. Thanks so much Robin and I can't wait for our next trade at the beginning of the month! Your ATC is wonderful!

Then Mara, from ATC for all sent me a lovely card, some goodies, my very first Tag and a beautiful ATC! Thank you so much Mara, I love everything and boy was I surprised...thank you!

Then Kaye also from ATC for all sent me a very nice card, some goodies and a ATC made from beeswax! How awesome is that! Thank you!

These next 2 ATC's are titled:  Angel's among us. I made these from my Lesson 1 at Collage Coterie,  Blended Paper Background. It's a phenomenal class that Mary teaches from GreenPaper. The class is a work at your own pace and very easy to understand, great pictures, valuable information, excellent teaching and  I highly recommend it! Please stop in at Mary's blog and see her work and read more about her classes, I know that you'll be happy that you did!

If you've been to my blog before you know that I loveeeee my seven grandchildren. So here they all are: Jon, Nathan, Brandan, Haley, Kaley, Aden and baby Sofia.

Here's the new kid on the block...Bella.

Now...Spooky Monday! This is hosted by Wendy at: Wendy's Adventures in Wonderland. For more Halloween and scary treats go to Wendy's and you can even link up with her to! Don't be to frightened just be very AFRAID!

This was good ole Uncle Henry. In the raging storm he went through the wind and swirling snow to try to find food for his family. Now...he's just a memory, the father, who was a brave warrior, that  ventured outside.Now, every Halloween good ole Uncle Henry pays us all a visit.

He brings along his trusty companion, Mr. Vulture, who is always so hungry and is looking at you with his black lil beady eyes .

The ugly Mr. Vulture that he is brings his jar of skulls with him every time! I believe he may be trying to scare us!

Then at the stroke of midnight you hear the hooting of the dark owl as he looks for his prey.

Stay tuned for another Spooky Monday...but please don't be AFRAID!

Happy Mosaic Monday and Spooky Monday to everyone. I do hope that enjoyed all the mosaics and fun!  Thank you all so much for stopping in today! Until the next
time, bead happy...
Hugs and happy beading...

Mosaic Monday...

Hi, thanks so much for stopping in this Mosaic Monday. One of the Yahoo Groups that I belong to is Luner Dreams and we're having a "Getting to Know You ATC Swap". I can't show you mine yet because I haven't placed them in the mail and I don't want to ruin the surprise for everyone else, but as soon as I do I will post their pictures so yous can take a peek to. There's a total of 5 of us in that particular swap and I got one of mine in the mail yesterday from Jan. She also made me the most gorgeous card! I was so happy and so impressed by both! Thanks Jan! So here's what she sent me:

 This is the front of the card that Jan had made me. It's just gorgeous! She did a wonderful job on this! I only wish I would be able to do something as well as this! Trust me, this is beautiful!
 This is the ATC. I was amazed when I seen this, what awesome work!

 When I opened up the card this is what I saw:

 This is the back of the ATC:

If you go to Annie Howes Keepsakes Etsy Shop you can also purchase some of what Jan had used to make these gorgeous pieces that she sent me.

Now, here's 2 of my seven grandchildren. Jon, my oldest grandson  and Brandan my 3rd oldest grandson.

Then last but not least my new kid on the block, Bella. As cute and sweet as she looks...boy she's a handful! I sure mis-named her! lol

I also wanted to share something very special to me. My friend Joni from The EtsyBead Street Team and also at Bead-space lit a candle for me. If you would stop in at her Etsy

Joni is, Creek-Cherokee, a beadweaver, a jewelry designer and a silversmith. Joni is very talented and a wonderful person! Thank you so much Joni, this meant the world to me!
