Anniversary card for my Mother In Law and Father In Law. The bird is adhered on the bottom and tail with thin pop dots and the top of the bird is adhered with just double stick tape. Colored images with Pearl Ex paints (Haven't used those in a long, long time!) And some Crystal Laquer over the berries.
I have been busy creating... just not posting. I'm trying to redo this blog but I'm not "that" blog savy. I do plan to reach out to a dear friend who is and hope she can help me. Until then, let me get busy posting some cards I've made recently. :) Birthday card for a friend's daughter who loves dogs.

A thank you card from my daughter and me.... Her Mimi took her for an overnight stay at Disney's animal Kingdom Lodge and then a day at the Magic Kingdom to celebrate my daughter's 7th birthday. From the pictures, their "apartment" was amazing and there's never a bad day at the Mickey's house!
This is a big fish! I mounted him on paper that has the wood grain look. Colored him with Radiant Pearls (I haven't used them in forever and forgot how much I love them.) Stamped the sentiment on silver glossy to look like it's a plaque. :)

This card was so much fun to create. I stamped the cat and colored with pencils and Gamsol. I then took a dry embossing tool and on the back, made little circles all over to puff it out. The picture frame was carefully cut and added a sheet of accetate to make it look like a real glass window. The trees in the background were stamped anc colored before assembling the rest of the card. He totally got a kick out of this card!
Lis recently fell and broke her leg. She had to have surgery and rehab. This is a new stamp set I recently purchased. Colored with pencils and added Stickles for glitter. This lady is chillin' out for Rita's birthday.... :)

I was driving home after dropping my daughter off at school and saw this and some other items at the end of this person's driveway. It turns out, his family was moving and couldn't take some things.... So he didn't mind if I did. The top drawer is broken and missing a knob. Rmoved the drawers... Also removed the bars that the drawers were sitting on... This is the top drawer that I took apart. I want to keep the front panel as I love the curves and will reuse it to hold the pillow in. Sanded it down.... Everything is now sanded down.... And added a bottom piece of scrap wood. I purposely left gaps on each side for ventilation. I painted it with 3 coats of black and then 3 coats of lacquer. I took an old bed pillow, cut it open, removed some filling, sewed it back up and used a pillow case but sewed it to be a little smaller -- making it more snug of a fit. The top view... Close up of inside... I hope my cat likes it. The pillow getting its makeover... Total cost: $3 in spray paint and $2.50 for using half of the can of lacquer... It was fun to create and repurpose this.

His birthday is right before Christmas and I just bought this stamp set and was wanting to try it... I love cardinals. Ran my cs thru my Xyron, added glitter, stamped image, colored with markers. LOVE the glitter of it all. A close up...
I worked a booth at the Stampfest show this past weekend and a woman came up to look around. I asked if I could take a picture and she said "make sure you get the back, too!" LOL This is the front of her shirt.... And this was the back of her shirt. LOL
