"Our little kitty died grammy. It got run over by a car. Well, it looked both ways before it crossed the street and it didn't see any cars, but there was one. I miss her."
He never told me that's how it was. It's truly amazing how the minds of children work. I miss Cloud too.

A card I made for someone who's feeling down. I used the petal prints set with my watercolor crayons. I believe I used real red, so saffron, and cameo coral to fill in the flowers before I spritzed them as well as old olive for the leaves. I stamped the sentiment in old olive. I tried drawing a butterfly with orange peel stickles but it did really turn out so I think I'll cover it or figure something else out. Thanks for looking.

Have a great day everyone.

I need to make baby shower invitations for my friend Natalie, she's having a girl and I'm not sure, but I think I'll keep it simple. This is card I made ages ago, but I still love the simpleness of it. I know that now I would not be able to keep it quite this plain. What do you think?
I used to scan everything, sorry.

Some of my friends may have already seen this lo irl, but I thought I'd share it here since it is one of my favs. I used a stamp set of circles that I got at clear dollar stamps on ebay and the "waves" (clear also) around the red circle are from rubber soul. I used my creative memories circle cutter and the wavy cutter they sell for the border strip. The chip "e" is from Joann's, painted red and inked around. I inked all of the pieces before adhering. I think it would be fun to do a card with these papers, hopefully today.
Thanks for visiting.

My review... good but some unanswered questions for me. I think she had to fit so much in that she left some ends untidy. And why oh why did so many of our favorites have to die? For what purpose was a child left parentless yet again? There has to be another as yet unwritten book where Harry, as godfather, watches over the boy, because why else would she have killed off Lupin and Tonks. Sheesh, not to mention Fred. So frustrating. What good did his death do the story other than getting to see Mrs. Weasley angry as all get out! Liked to see sparks between Hermione and Ron finally kindled but she really glossed over Harry and Ginny...three kids later. Oh well, I was looking forward to Eclipse much more that HP anyway. I can't help it, I'm a bookaholic. Take care.

Here's Mr. Coyote. I stamped him with the versamark, added heat and stick, I then added gold flake over the heat and stick. It's actually a mixture of metal flakes. The second one that I did came out better than this one. I used pearl ex powders instead of the flake but alas no pic or scan of that one. Hmm I nee to get on the ball. The bg is a stamp by Magenta that I stamped multiple times in different directions. Man this card is boring!
Have a beautimous day!
Off to bed with me.

The other card is done with Bloomin with Happiness. I sewed the sides of the image and then added stamped stitches with my Technique Tuesday stitch set. Also used my EK Success double flower punch to top of fhe image.
Have a great day. Mines kind of horrible already. For some reason no one at my dh's company got paid today, they're saying Monday now, ummm can you say Mortgage? Sheesh.

Sorry the colors on this card didn't exactly scan true to life, maybe I'll take a pic later today. I need to get to bed but I also need to finish Nicole's cards. I'll post the other one later this morning.Here's the picture first and then the scanned image. See the difference!
I'm feel so blessed to be born in this country.

This morning Jakob was in a parade and got to throw candy to people. From what I gather he liked throwing AT people more than he liked throwing it TO them. Sheesh.
We watched some pretty amazing fireworks at MHS last night, I'd say the best I've seen since moving to NM. I need to get working on some cards for my friend Nicole and I'd better do it now while the kiddos are still napping. Take care.
