Day 60 - Say 'What'

Here is the second card that I did for the say 'what' challenge. I always say, 'What's up pup?' to my little puggie girl when she is giving me the big, beautiful brown eyes. I just know that one day she is going to answer me.

Day 60 - Say 'What'

Here are a few cards for the day 60 challenge. I like the sparkly pink paper so much that I didn't want to cover it up with embellishments, I don't think it needs anything else. So very simple.

Day 59 - A Certain Sentiment

Here is Day 59 from 365 Cards. I felt like doing some 'spring' today in my card because there was just so much rain outside. Tried to think of what our gardens will look like with all of their glorious colour, after the April showers. Hope it brightens your rainy Tuesday!

Day 57 - Super Sketchy Sunday

I LOVE ladybugs! I have lots of pretty ladybug things so decided to put some to good use. This card was fun to do and also a challenge for me because of the different shapes and how big to cut the diamond in the middle. Fun!

These are the backs of the two transparency cards. I put some white paper on the backs so that people can write their greetings and personalize the cards.

Here are two cards that I made from transparencies for the challenge at http://www.365cards.blogspot.com/. I used a painting technique with paints and glossy paper that I learned from my friend Birgit. I love this technique and it involves dropping small blobs of paint onto 2 small separate sheets of glossy paper and then smooshing them together to get these really cool effects. I can't remember the names of the paints, but as soon as I do, I will put the name up here.

First sewing project in the new room!

An alchemist costume that I made for my god-daughter's project on medieval castles. The hat didn't photograph very well, but is a black beret with matching embellishments. I took a picture of it, but it just looks like a black blob, so didn't include it here. I can't wait to see her wearing it!
