All the while I have very large clear tape and I didn't have to do any piecing! Live and learn. So pay no attention to those with the stripes... This is called lust. this is called relax.
this is called mother nature.
this is called i heart nj.
this is called camo.

Inchies again!

These were a lot of fun to put together. I played with shaving cream and paint for the backgrounds and the punches. A little black ink, some words from the computer and voila! Fun without being as time consuming as the first ones.

I've been MOOved!

Here is just a small sampling of my new MOO cards. I love the texture and the sheen of these cards! This photo does not do them justice. If you are interested in swapping MOOs... let me know!

Inchies Crazy!

This group of 25 took me more than 3 hours to complete! And I didn't even realize it was that late until I was done. Time does go by fast when you're having fun! I decided I would only work with round and square punches and could only make one additional cut unless it was to trim excess off the overhang. Very pleased with the results!

New greeting/note cards!

This piece is called - all she wanted was sunshine. This is one is called - all righty then.
This one was made by 4 circle punches, ribbon and text from books, and words and photos from fashion magazines. Next one - square punches!

Altered Organizer

I picked this organizer up and had fun with a few of my favorite stamps. I still have some altering to do with the inside, then I might put it on etsy. We'll see!

Happy Birthday ala Hellmuth

Playing around with some old photos that I copied and altered ala Claudine Hellmuth. First time and now know what I need to adjust to make it come out better. But I still like it just the same. I will be making some more I'm sure!

Stampathon - stamprageous!

Played with the Mochas yesterday and had way too much fun! The photos are what I did with each teacher... can we do this again... tomorrow?

These are the ones I did with Alice...
had done polymer before but not with ink and a stamp.
I am smitten!

This is the box we decorated with Cindy. What a neat idea!

Then we moved on to cards. I don't think I was being a very good follower, but heh - love the results. And even better - Cindy gave us another packet to make at home!
The scarf we did with Thea may not come out very clear in the photo - but it has different variations of color and intensity that are unbelievable!
Thia is the by product from the scarf .
This is the paper used to iron out the embossing after we dyed the scarf. Much fun!

OMG! More Postcards!

Here are my latest postcards -the first two were inspired by a group member's piece she did that I just loved. As you see - still in love with the glitter!

You are Strength
Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgement,
but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy.
This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion's hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden's steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion's mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one's personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.

What Tarot Card are You?
