Hello everyone...

On the menu today is Butterflies ( well, not really menu but you know what i mean).  The butterflies are embossed in pink and then clear bling down the centers of them.  They needed the bling!  The card base is actually gray even though it looks like it has a tint of blue in it.  The background stamp is an SU stamp, stamped in gray.  I made this for my neice's 18th birthday.  I hope she liked it.

Next time i blog, i have something different to share.  But it has to wait.  I think you might be surprised.

Thanks for dropping by, do come again.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.  I love to hear from you...    See you next time.

Birthday, Fish & Leaves

Hello again.  Here are two cards i made yesterday.  I was blog hopping and found a couple of cards that really struck me and i wanted to make them right away.  So i cased them from somewhere, just don't know from whom.  Sorry...

The fish is embossed so he doesn't get hidden behind the paint.  Learned the hard way.  The blue paint is twinkling H2O's.

The other card is the same three stamps all over.  On the left side i used an SU punch that is no longer available.  So there you go... couple of easy peasy cards.

Thanks for stopping by.  Also, leave me a comment, I'd love to hear what you think.  Have a great day!!

Vacation and Dogs

Hello...  I said before that I would have a picture of my vacation.  Here it is, this is the view from out my balcony.  And we did see some dolphins from here one day.  Always cool to see dolphins.  No laying on the sand for us... we body surfed those waves the whole time we were at the beach.  It was so nice! I love the warm water.  So different from when I grew up swimming in the New Hampshire rivers.  Your body turns red it is so cold.  But some how you get used to it.

 I also wanted to show you a couple of Dog things i made, one a card and one a tag.  The dogs are photo stamps.  I love how they come out.  They are from a company called The Stampsmith.  I have a whole plate of dogs.

Well that's it for today... Have a wonderful day.

Drawing Face

Hello all... It's been a while since i showed one of my drawings, but here it is.  I wish it had come out a little better when i scanned it.  She really does have a nose and chin.  I think i am slowly getting the hang of drawing faces.  I like how she came out.  I used my TH markers to color her with.  And actually this is the first one i gave a neck and shoulders to.  It does make a difference... just a head looks kinda like a balloon in mid air.  Like i said i'm slowly learning.  Well i hope you like... let me know what you think and thanks for any comments.

Hi all... I'm in a beachy mood.  I can't wait for my vacation.  I'll be going to Virginia Beach, soon, but not soon enough.  We'll see if i come back with any pictures or if i just loaf all day on the beach!  Anyway here is my seahorse card i made for a friend.  I made the blue background same way i did on my last card posting.  I have to say i was having fun and did a bunch of these backgrounds.  The seahorse is from Impression Obsession.  I'm not sure where the starfish is from because it is an unmounted one that i have.  Well i hope everyone had a great Fourth of July with fireworks and all.  We won't be having any fireworks until Sunday when my town has a whole big weekend celebration.  We always have fun!  Enjoy your day and let me know what you think...

Summer Fish Birthday

Hi everyone!  It's been a looong time...  But i have something to share.  Here is a card i made for my God-Son.  I made the background of bubbles with my cuttlebug.  But then for the background for the fish and words i used the new spring and summer Tim Holtz inks.  I squished the colors on my mat, sprayed with water, and ran my cardstock through it.  I love the effect!  When it was dry i spattered more water on the cardstock to give it a little more speckley look.  For the inside i had it say "That's fish talk for Happy Birthday."  Hope you like... Have a great weekend!
