This is another SSS card. The theme was "music". It's the first time a used a mask. I didn't have the Eclipse Tape but a friend told me I could use a post it note. Again I used water color pencils. I can't wait for the day I can use Copic Markers. With my tremors it's not possible yet.


This is a simple card I made for a Secret Sister Swap. The theme was "bug". I really like using SU's coordinated paper and ink.


I'm saying hello to my cousin Mary Pat. She's going to the library tomorrow to look at my blog. She doesn't have a computer cause she'd be on it all the time. Don't we all complain about that? Mary Pat is the cousin I go to Disney World with. She got my Mom and I addicted the first year we went. I love you, Mary!
This is my little angel. She's just so special to me. I made this card for my Mother's friend who is in an assisted living home in NY. The stamps are Whiff Of Joy. I colored with watercolor pencils and the paper is SU. When Marge got the card, she said people were coming from other rooms to see it. That, of course, made me feel real good.

This card was made for a sketch swap. The sponsor of the swap sends a design and you follow it. It was the first one I've done. I enjoyed it and will do more. The paper is Stampin Up. The "Be Free" tag was cut with the Print and Cut feature the Silhouette offers. It's a great way to cheat if you don't have a stamp that fits the theme.

Nice Cold Watermellon

I love this card. It's one of those cards you don't want to give up. All the veggies are cut with the Silhouette Digital Cutter. The watermellon has a flap on the front that you can stamp or write a little message in. The card was for a SS swap too.


At the moment, with our hot weather, lemonade sounds real good. Our temps have been in the 90's. I made this card for a Secret Sister. I bought the yellow corrugated paper from a scrapbook store going out of business. I love the way it gives dimension. One of these days I'm gonna go on the hunt for more.

Where Have I Been?

I certainly have been gone awhile. I really can't believe it was March since I posted. I don't know where I've been. There was a trip to Disney World in there somewhere. My Secret Sister Swaps really keep me busy, but not that busy. This card was for the theme "clothes Hanger". I just happened to have this lovely Jolee cloths pins and dress. The flower rhinestones are Bling It and the paper is Stampin Up.
