She is such a tart!

I spent most of the day cutting rubber and making inventory bags but I had to take a break and play a little bit.

By The Sea 4 Mixed Media Monday

I have been seeing lots of post for challenges that look like they would be so fun and now that the ATC workshop I was in has ended I thought maybe I would have time to do one or two now and then. There are several I have looked at that I would like to try but I just don’t seem to have the time and energy to do challenges every week. So I thought I would just do what I can when I can :) This is the first one I thought I would try. It is for Mixed Media Monday and the theme was “By The Sea”. For my card I started with dry brushing white cardstock with blue. Then I stamped my little verse and embossed some swirlies on. I layered that onto teal cardstock that had been edged with versa mark ink and embossed pearl and glitter. Then I added some mulberry paper, a grunge board swirly and pop dotted my vintage postcard image on top. I then added a little stickles to that to give it a touch more sparkle.

Oh No!

I have wanted to post this canvas but made it for a one for one swap that I did with my friend Mary Schweitzer (greenwomandesign) but I did not want to show it off and ruin the surprise for her. Well I finally got it in the mail and she just emailed me that she received it! It is 6" x 12". I did the texture with spackle that I had mixed with laytex paint then when it had set up a little I stamped into it. I also used rub on metallic on it but they did not show up too good in the picture : / I call it "Oh No"

Go check Mary’s blog to and see the lovely Fairy Shrine I received. The pictures are good but in no way show how beautiful it really is.

Puppy Love

 The grandpuppies are growing strong! They have there eyes open and are standing on there little legs now. Hubby has talked me into keeping the only one we know is for sure a snorkie (that was real hard). She is the one with the yorkie markings on the left. Hubby says that because our yorkie is so old and won’t live much longer that we should keep her. That way we will still have a little part of him when he goes. We have decided to call her Tabby after her daddy Toby…. cute huh :)

This has been a pretty exhausting week, after feeding tiny puppy every 6 hours he passed away on hubby's birthday. I just got so attached to him but he just could not gain any weight and became more and more listless. Because of this and all the preparations for hubby’s birthday I did not get any art done so I am posting something I did a few weeks back. I love the Alice in wonderland stamps and this is a card I did with them that I though you might enjoy :)
