Grinning Greenie

Another tiny card!! Love this little monster.......he looks like he knows how to have fun. Stamped him on B&T paper and white CS and then just the top of him on white CS again, layered the B&T body onto the white CS and cut out the eyes from the partially stamped image on white CS.

Scraps made up the banner and just a small square of B&T finished the card.

Oh Goody - CAKE!

I think these were some of the first stamp sets I ordered from A Muse Studio when they became a catalog company (still don't understand why they did that). Had some Basic Grey scraps that were (luckily) big enough to punch so that put a fun spin on a "this & that" type of card.

Seafood Luncheon

Last month we toodled over to smell the salt air and to feel the ocean breeze on our faces and to catch a few glimpses of these guys. Watching through the camera lense, I was quite entertained with this otter fighting with (and winning) his crabby lunch.

Such a fun little trip - just enough time to clear the mental cobwebs, run around on the beach and have some yummy seafood........aaaaaah..........

Card from Lily, Bob & Iris

Yes, there's a reason the big black cat looks like he has's because Bob DOES have fangs (or very long canines).

This is one of Creepella's b-day week cards.......I loved making all of her b-day week cards. They were all pretty tiny and one of a kind so I could do all kinds of goofy things.

Off to see "Breaking Dawn" again.................yippppeeeee!!!!

Black Friday!

Hope you all are having a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Here's the little card I sent out to a few is pretty crappy and isn't a cat scratching post the perfect backdrop for a Thanksgiving Day card....(can you tell I'm sitting on the couch?) - but I'm being lazy and I don't want to get up. Found this "telescoping" card over at Splitcoasters a while ago and it was so neat-O looking I had to try it. It's quite fun to make although making several of them is pretty time-consuming even though the stamp images are fairly small for coloring purposes. Hopefully all of the recipients understood how the card worked!

Just got done purchasing a few stamps (love those Black Friday online deals!) - and I have a question: if you get a specific stamp to make a specific card for someone's not like you're getting the stamp for YOURSELF, right???

Well after my purchases, that's what I'm telling myself!
