Get 'er done book mark

I made this bookmark for my friend to encourage her to journal more often and to work on writing her own book.

I tried an alcohol ink background technique I learned from RachO113.  Ironically, I have been chatting with her on various USTREAM shows and watching her USTREAM.  DUH!  I have been watching her YouTube videos all along...never knew it was the same Rach. LOL.

Water color paper, mod podge, UNITY stamp, alcohol inks, bread bag tie, micro beads, masking tape, cellophane, shipping tape.

Lady sings the blues

One year ago today my mother departed this life and made a transition into eternity.  Being exposed to church goers and church lingo, I have always heard it said that we should rejoice when a person dies in Christ.  I truly understand the admonishment and I AM thankful that my mom was saved.  However, today I feel like the lady singin' the blues.  I miss my mom.

Thanks Helen for the lovely birthday card

Have a sweet rest mommy.  We'll meet again.

Feed the birds...

Ever since I met my friend and former co-worker Gina I stopped saying "kill two birds with one stone", she got me saying  "stop the killing...let's feed two birds with one piece of corn".  She said it and it just made sense.  So, I played along in the Friday Night Challenge on the Scraps Of Color .ning site.  Challenge one: use all brown tones on a card.  Challenge two: scraplift a project in the gallery and make a card.  Here is my version of feeding the birds...I did one card to satisfy the rules of both challenges.  I scraplifted my online scrap buddy Cynta (Thanks for the inspiration).

Sentiment: Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times.

This card was made from all scraps.

This card was also entered in Word Art Wednesday Challenge #46

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.


Girlfriends challenge

Ok the sing a song challenge is over.  The next part is the 'Girlfriends' challenge, based on the television show by the same name.  The first character was Maya who was a secretary (our project had to include a paperclip) Maya was also an author so that is why the stack of her books on the card.  Silly game, but fun.  All the images that we are given during this challenge have not been released yet by Robert Jackson.

Image: Prisma colored pencils and OMS
Sentiment: You must not know 'bout me song by Beyonce

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.


Mixed media style scrapbook page

This is a page in an album.  I am really having fun doing art journal and mixed style scrapbook pages.  This picture was taken at Chieko's 74th birthday party.

Materials: A LOT! (LOL)
The entire album is on another post.


Birthday Collage Card

Look what I received in the mail!!!  Happy birthday to me!!!!!! It is from one of my non-scrapping friends.  We all have an artist inside of us just busting to get out.  It is wonderful being created in God's design we are all creative in some way.  Love it!

There is so much detail to look at on this page.  The butterflies make me think of "Changed" by Tremaine Hawkins...been singing that all weekend.

The back of the card.  Just reminds me to F.R.O.G.-Fully Rely On God and the the LORD is my shepherd!

I did scream loud when I opened the card!  Sentiment in the glass: Laugh until you tinkle (LOL)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you come again soon.


More sing a song challenge cards

The challenge was to use Robert Jackson digital images and make a card or project that depicted a song.  I went a little crazy with making easel cards.  While my coloring is horrible I still wanted to share so I can look back in 10 years and hopefully I will have gotten better. (LOL)

That's What Friends are for- Dionne Warwick and Friends

Sister Big Bones-Anthony Hamilton

Spinner Card

Today I am sharing with you a spinner card I made.   Now ask me if I  know which stamps and which die cuts I used-NOT! lol  I do know that I used all Stampin' Up products.  I rarely make traditional sympathy cards, but I am really liking this sentiment.

Sending sympathy and prayers... heal your heart
