Rare indeed.....and a MUSE Last Minute DASH



I saw [This] card and was so SMITTEN, and 
totally inthralled and inspired that I wanted it.....
Pretty bad......Awwwww someone had dibs...




So I wanted to make it... this is my first dash at it...
Not too bad...I can do better next time.. 
and there will be a next time!

I saw Ruby Naz's totally FREAKIN' cool card 
and thought of one of my loves...
 the OCEAN..blues and a dreaminess.

So I added a beach quality.  
I doubled the foam layer to fit larger beads..
I colored a mini starfish with a Delicata Gold
re-inker,  added a mini pearl bead to a miniature shell,..
and added a sand dollar.....greens, golds blues...

And the bracelet finding I found was PERFECT...
($1.00 at Ben Franklin Bead Dept)

"Where there is a will there is a way..."


Thanks Ruby for your Inspiration... 







Adding to Virginias View for the Sea and bead embellishments...





And  a MAD slip dashery 
add to MUSE Christmas Visions....
Oh. I wish there was more
 time in the day!!!!!





Now it is your turn to get crafty!!!............

Thanks for coming by my blog!

Create, Enjoy
Live, Laugh
and 
LOVE!
