The Tree

 I made the first tree, above, which was traded right away at ATC's For All. Another trader asked if I would make her one as well, so I did and another trade was made. First I inked the background using a sponge and several green & brown inks. I then heat embossed the tree in white and, using the sponge and inks, went over the tree image. I used Whisper White Craft ink for the stamping. Notice I went a bit lighter on #2.

Rock On

I'm not super crazy about this one, I'll probably spice it up some. What do you think, need a little something more?

Purple Journey

This ATC was traded last week. I took a Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad to create the background and added a Stampin' Up glitter star.

From My Friend Pam

Isn't this the cutest card?!? I loved finding it in my mailbox for Valentines Day, thanks Pam. We do have a lot of fun at Stamp Camp, no hot tub, but wine sometimes.....

ATC ~ Just Open

"Just Open", that's it, no theme. A collage, with an embossed/cut butterfly.

ATC ~ Fancy Nancy

Fancy Nancy is at the shore wearing her giant ruby necklace. I water-colored over some of the picture, the sequin shells are partially covered with Stickles, and sentiment is stamped.

Snow...Might as Well Make Snowmen!

I decided not to color this crew, I like the simple look of Midnight Muse and white. Didn't really make any snowmen this winter, it's been to cold in Michigan.

A Little of This and That

These cards are for just about any occasion. It's great to have a bunch of general cards on hand. The insides are blank and can be customized or just written in.

Anniversary Cards

 The top card could be for Valentines Day, but that is past. I think it would be a nice "just because" kind of card. Below is a lovely Anniversary or wedding card.

Valentine Marie

Okay, I know, I spelled heart wrong. It is fixed now, I replaced the 'hart' with a new 'heart'. Now the heart is dimensional. The little sparkles are Stickles. Say that 3 times fast! I have a Valentine card or two coming up, and maybe a post showing some of the items I'll be sending to my girls next week. Can't believe how fast the first semester of college went by! It can slow down anytime now. Thanks for stopping by!

Here is one to remember SUMMER

She is beautiful amongst the flowers. The background is stippled with yellow acrylic craft paint. Each flower is fussy cut, meaning by hand from card stock using v e r y sharp little scissors. Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy my flower girl.

She's a milkmaid with her two Guernsey cows. Just a reminder to milk the cows, (or goats) twice a day, everyday! Available for trade at my ATCs For All site.

A little orange to brighten your day!

Isn't he (or she) adorable? I just want to play with the fishy.... The orange is delightful on this cloudy, snowy day in Michigan.
Wasn't sure where I was going to go with this one. I had the images and the "simple" attached when I came across the orange "Cheap Talk". It just made sense to add "White Man" in remembering that most of the treaties between the white American and Native American have been "lost". Or so it's been said. ANYway, it was orange so I used it for the orange theme.

Hope it cheered you up!
