I'm back




I am back from Ca. and had a very nice trip. We thought that flying home on Thanksgiving the air planes would be less crowded. Not so. It was a very long day. Celia did this card and I loved the simplicity of it. Here's my version. I made mine stamping the leaf and then stamping the music ov er the leaf. This was a little tricky since my stamp is much bigger than the leaf. I got lucky!! I used the music stamp on the inside and "Happy Birthday To You" stamp that I rarely use. I liked inking up an acrylic block, also liked using my crimper to make this design. That is a great technique for masculine cards

This is another VA card. I'm not sure that I like it but I sent it anyway. I think I like the inside better than the outside LOL. It's Not Quite Navy, crumb cake and Really Rust. Almost out of the retired rust.

Here's one of my favorite Va cards for November. I love the checked paper and really liked the way this one turned out.

Another VA card. I am going to have to get busy and make some cards. This is the last one that I have not shown you. It is burgundy navy and Confetti white. The tag stamp is one of my favorites. Easy to use on masculine cards.

Here's another simple birthday card I made for my VA Nov. birthdays. Not too many this month which was good because I was very busy with the bazaar. The paper is from Hobby Lobby and the cup cake I have had for a long time. Easy!

Here's another VA card. I love the paper, I think I bought it @ Joann's in Houston. This is such a pretty stamp, one that I have had for almost as long as I have been stamping. It looks wonderful embossed in gold.

Here's another VA card. Very simple. I love this striped paper. The saying is from StampinUp. I am going to work on my idea for our Christmas cards today & get ready for our last of the year meeting tomorrow @ the point. Wish me luck on both those endeavors!!

Another VA card. Very simple but I like it. The bazaar is over and we did much better this year. This is a stamp I use a lot as you have probably noticed. It is from Viva Las Vegas. Have you ever been there? What an experience. You have to get buzzed in the door (tells you what a good neighborhood it is in). There are rooms of stamps & I think I only bought this one stamp as I was overwhelmed. The guy that owns the place had at least 5 dogs and that many cats in the place. Grossed me out with his bare feet and long toenails! To each his own I say.

Here's my swap card for October. I used Distress inks to make the background then I stamped the leaf randomly and then embossed with clear powder. Did you know that the distress inks can be embossed? I used old olive ink to ink the leaves and then cut them out. I liked the results.

Different colors


Here's a card I made for my VA buddies. The colors are blue, lime green & black. Doesn't show up very well but it was a great color combo. The lime green and blue were laying in my scrap assortment and I thought humm that looks good together. The blue is not Marina Mist but is very close.
