Bejeweled beauties


 




Bejeweled beauties of crazyquilt blocks waiting to be made up into something special. A collage of fabric art. A hand made card. And a box of little treasures. The box is a soap box with a seahorse on the front, a thrift store find which included the buttons. Do you see the little hand mirror? Clearly a treasure box for a mermaid.

I also added some dollar store stickers to dress up the cards with a little more cheer.
 
And last but not least some little things to remind me it is getting close to Christmas, despite the heat!
