Lions, and tigers, and bears! No, just a bunny and an elephant...

My friend Pam Eyre at Cloth and Creation sells beautiful handmade items and she also sells some supplies like her vintage chenille (Etsy link).  A few months ago Pam sent me a stack of assorted colored chenille, I finally made these cute toys for my new great granddaughter.

 White Rabbit

Pink Elephant
(It looks  a little like a woolly mammoth)

I have a question. Since the fabric is vintage and from Australia, are these vintage Australian toys made in the U.S.A?

I'm going to link this post to Pink Saturday.  Please hop over to How Sweet The Sound to visit Beverly our hostess and check out all the pink posts.

Ready...Set...GO! ~Tag Tuesday

WOW! Rebecca at the Blog Challenge Garden didn't pick a specific theme as such for the tag this week, however she did put a time limit on making the tag. She said, "get out all your supplies then set the timer for 10 minutes"!
This was really a challenge for me, I do not like to work fast at all.
But I gave it a try. I used rubber stamps, a sticker, strawflowers, a bit of raffia, some jute and sheer ribbon.

Awesome Give Aways~Thoughtful Gifts...

My friend, Cindy Adkins at Whimsical Musings, sent this beautiful digital collage gift to me. The images Cindy used in the piece are from our friend June at Dezinaworld. Cindy is one of the super talented designers at Dezinaworld. Thank you my sweet friend Cindy for cheering me up with your beautiful digital gift.
The background in Cindy's piece is a FREE background that June is giving away just for stopping by. If you want the image and if you would like to have a chance to win a fantastic give away hop on over to say hi to June  and visit Dezinaworld. Here is just one of the images she is including in her fabulous give away treasury!
To thank my friend Cindy I took June's free background, added one of the ladies from "Colorful Ladies" sheet she is currently offering in her $1 sale. I did a little digital altering of the colors so I could enter June's "Purple and Green Challenge" click here and in her "Give Away" click here.

The piece reminds me of Cindy, she is a beautiful, talented, friend who does like to dance.
