The Answer My Friend Is Blowing In The Wind Blog Hop


Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea ?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free ?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Today's craft challenge for Her Craft Kre8tions was to make something that "blows in the wind". Each design team member received beads, chimes, nightmare fishing line, a jingle bell, and a twirly thingie dooie (that's a technical term!). Everyone was encouraged to add things from their stash to make it their own and to go "green" without buying anything additional!!!!

With this all being said, everyone and the fishing line were not on "speaking terms". Lynne Kirsh had knots galore and would give up and pitch it and her one cat would return it expecting her either to throw again or finish ... your guess is as good as her's! Several never ever want to see fishing line again!!!!! Thus, the grand prize will be 100 yards of fishing line .... ha ha, just kidding!!!! It will be a surprise package to one lucky recipient that remarks on everyone's stop along the way!

 Here is my completed wind chime I used many of the beads added some  sequin like butterflies and learned one very valuable lesson "I hate fishing Line "

For the top part I cut out and embossed and colored 3 butterflies from a piece of acetate from a cricut cartridge using my Cuttlebug and the Butterfly die and embossing folder Learned another valuable lesson you need to run the die through more than once and use a piece of card board shim to get the cut all the way through the acetate, embossing it was not a problem I used Martha Stewart ink pads to color them.

Hope you like my Wind Chime Love to read your comments!
