Hello and Welcome to my blog.
I'm a Mom, Daughter, Sister and friend and a Cat Keeper and an avid card maker and paper artist. I love the outside, gardening, visiting my friends and family and enjoy many other activities. My blog is about cards and so much more. I hope you enjoy visiting with me here.
Don't you just love this, a vintage image of a young boy sailing his homemade boat out on the lake. Brings you back, doesn't it? Lots of goodies on this card and techniques - I am terrible at card recipes, not good at food recipes either! I'll try: Again this is two postcard images, as it is popped and offset a tad (like a pinch or a dash in food recipes, LOL) I used a designer paper pack and bronse ink on the blue paper for the design and chocolate pearls (not real chocolate) as an accent and sky blue ribbon on the corners to follow the sketch and those two ivory braided pearl thingies from the notions department. I liked the braided accents even if the card front has a little boy. I finished off the inside and has a matching envelope, not shown.
Stop on by to the other design teams kitchens to see what they are cooking up with their recipes. Thank you for stopping by. Jane
We are back from our Mini-vacation and had alot of fun and are now greeted by two angry cats and a mound of dirt laundry!
We did a lot of fishing and I am showing you my dry bobber. Of course, I was out fished! Also I am showing you a Bald Eagle standing guard over their large nest - it is HUGE and also saw the two babies in there that are not ready to fly. We stayed with some friends of ours that were very gracious to extend an invitation to us. Many Thanks!
Hello, I'm showing you a little Americana today! Makes me think of hot dogs, baseball and Apple Pie, and not in that order.
What is it you say, no - not a stamped, or digi image - it's ** an altered postcard **. I sniped off wording in the lower section and did some surgery and resewed the postcard back together. I added some buttons and cut-up some blue hearts, dry embossed them and added some white ink to the borders, topped it off with Prima flowers, a white star brad and hemp cording, and yes - you do see some red rick rack too. I really like this one and right in time for the 4th of July!!
