After you visit her link up your project of choice!

Hello crafty friends! I'm Susan from and I am a guest blogger for Crafting Misfit today. Back in August I had entered the Show and Tell challenge here and was thrilled to find I won and would be featured here! Being a somewhat new blogger this is very exciting for me and I am so excited to share my project with you today.
I have always been inspired by art and I do feel that the line between crafting and art is very fine. That being said I decided to do something a bit out of the box and I made a beautiful tray. I picked up this very bland looking cream colored tray at a Goodwill Store for .50 cents
After painting the tray a metallic purple, I then laid a piece of acetate on the bottom and placed Tarot cards on top. I then used a Martha Stewart punch and outlined the cards. The embellishment in the middle is a Tim Holtz and the gems are a combo of Martha Stewart and Jolee crystals. I then put a sheet of Plexiglas on top however because the guy at Ace hardware cut the glass too small I had to get creative here. I outlined the sides of the Plexiglas with another design using an Ekk punch. All in all, this is really a very easy project.

Now I know people have different opinions of Tarot cards but if you set all that a side and look at the artistic value only they are very interesting. The artwork is something that I find the most fasinating. That being said my curiousity got the better of me and after I finished this product I thought to myself, "I wonder what these cards mean".  I went through a whole deck and these were the eight cards I picked out because the artwork appealed to me the most. So I went online and looked them up and what learned floored me. The cards from the top left corner across mean... Knowledge, Patience, Moderation, Conquest, Mirage, Nurishment, Agreement and Control. Those eight cards describe me almost perfect. I didn't include the Joker card, then it would have been perfect.
One last thing about a little candy?

 I am giving away some blog candy over at my blog so stop on by. All you have to do is be a follower of both and and make sure to leave a comment on both. That's it!  Thanks again to CraftingMisfit for having me here today. I wish you all a great weekend, no matter what the cards have in store for you! ( lol...I had to add it, I couldn't resist.....)
