Cat Tails


Finished this card for one of Vivian's swaps last night. This swap - employ the "Split Negative" technique. The cattail image illustrates the technique.

I liked the way this card turned out. It might actually be useful as a card for a man's birthday or even Father's Day, because it isn't too feminine looking. But..it does have ribbon and purple! So for the very "manly" man (ie. homophobe!)...well...this wouldn't work.

The images are from Unity Stamp Company. The ribbon, card stock and ink are from Stampin Up!, the embossing powder is an old one of mine from Judi-Kins, and the design paper is from DCWV.

This is my very last swap for May...and I think it's my last swap for awhile (besides a couple on-going ones I signed up for). Which is good, because I really needed a break. I was overdoing it. This will give me a chance to focus on techniques, challenges, or organizing and purging my supplies. I can also concentrate on some of my other hobbies - primarily jewelry and photography. And also some sewing. I have a few sewing projects in mind that combine stamping, painting, and sewing...usable mixed media.

And most importantly during the summer, I like being outdoors biking, jogging, camping, rock climbing. So, I will definitely be doing more of that...and taking more photos! AND...HOPEFULLY, taking a few pounds off the derriere (and south).

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

Spooky Eyeballs

Hello, everyone.  Over the weekend, I made this 12 x 12 inch printable page.  I will add another version later this week, that will have smaller and more numerous eyeballs!

To save at the original version size, click on the image and then click again to zoom in.  Then you can save and print it!

Halloween Scrapbooking Sheets

I created these this morning....just in time for making a few treats before the spooks come calling tomorrow night!
Enjoy.
