A Vintage Witch

If you ever watched Practical Magic, you will remember this:

"There is a little witch in every woman."

And if you consider our capacity of changing things and immense creativity, you will understand that most of us know our craft. 
Simon Says wanted to see some Witch-Kraft so here is mine.Tag Along wanted something vintage.Glitter-n-Sparks wanted butterflies and Crafter's Cafe challenged us to use our punches and dies.

George & Me

Wish you were here

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from hell?
Blue skies from pain?
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish
How I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
What have we found?
The same old fears
Wish you were here

Card for a baby girl

I made this card for The Cheerful Stamp Pad: I am one of the designers there. It is a card for a baby girl. I've used a digital image from the Stitchy Bear's 'baby girl pack': it's the gown and added some others charming elements.The baby's image is from 1930's. I am entering this card in some challenges.

Frida in Brazil

This is my hand drawn Frida. I created the background first. Then I drew her. When I finished I glued my Frida to the painted background and adorned my work with some washi tapes. I edited it in Gimp and added the quote. The original below.

Frida Tropical

“Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light. Tragedy is the most ridiculous thing.” 
― Frida Kahlo

I colorized the photo and added it to a background which I created using different textures. Frida is an inspiration.
