Just Embellishments…

This card was made using embellishment and NO Stamps.  I found some burlap and some tiles that had some words on it.  When I was making this card it reminded me about the beach scenelaugh

Summertime is here.  Hot and humid.  I am used to the dry heat but I really don’t like the humidity.  On top of that we have had isolated thunder shows every day for a couple of weeks.  Oh can you say Code Orange – Air Quality. 
Ok I am off my soap box.  The theme for Paper Maniac this week is Summertime.

Another Hobby?????

I was visiting my friend and she was showing me how to make jewelry.  She had the best clasps!  I love the variety of clasps.  Another hobby jewelry making?

Here is a card I made using on of my unity kits of the month.  I cut out the ladybugs to add some interest.  I think I should have used some flower soft for the grass for some texture. I did some paper piecing for the flowers.

Rolling On…….

It is Friday and you know what that means.  Unity’s Friends with Flair.  This creation is from Unity – KOTM for May. 
I have some skates at my parent’s house and I remember my friend and I were going to be skating stars.   We even got matching blouses and they were the type of blouses that look like angel wings.  I really like skating but I have not done it in a bit.  I may have to get my skates.

I was playing with the editing on the pictures using Windows Live Writer.  That is cool!

Have a Great Weekend!

The Design Diva’s Blog group has a challenge to use paint.  Now I must admit I really use paint but I really like how this turned out.


I really like how it turned out.  I was using the daubers from Tim Holtz.
