Neck 'N Neck

Hi, Bloggin' Buddies!

You may remember this card that I posted a while ago using our friend's cute photo of a giraffe. She loved the set I made her so much that she asked if she could pay me to do some more. Well, I explained that I really don't sell my cards - I prefer to share them with those who enjoy and appreciate them. Also, I really don't like to mass-produce.

But I told her that if I could do them at a leisurely pace (no deadlines - I'm retired!) and if I could mix them up a little, it would be a fun challenge.

Over several weeks I produced two each of four designs featuring her cute giraffe photo.

I used Graphic 45 paper, vellum, some camera paper, a stencil (My Favorite Things) and some additional stash finds.

It was a fun project and I was more than happy to do it for a very dear lady.

Thanks for the visit and have a great day!

Hi, Bloggin' Buddies!

Yep, that is how I've been feeling lately. When that happens I try to pull out some easy things, such as using  some backgrounds that I previously prepared or coloring up some some ready-made images.

Here are some cards that I recently made using Suzy's Sizzling Series Watercolor Paintable Prints from Simon Says Stamp. I used my trusty Zig Clean Color Markers (I so love them!).

I took some real liberties with the one on the right side. I removed the bottom sentiment (it just wasn't "me") and added a mermaid (from Clear Art Stamps, 2010) for a focal point of interest.

Lots of Wink of Stella, Wink of Luna and Stickles here, also!

The photos is a bit blurry because I used my phone (uninspired again).

Hope you've been having a great August. Thanks for the kind visit,
