Thank you card

Today I am going to work on Thank you cards. I have so much to be thankful for and I am completely out of thank you cards. This is a pre-made card - the stipes were already on it. Then I stamped the words on it and came up with the little bouquet to dress it up. The stamps are by Inkadinkado. I inked the bouquet stamp with Zig markers and drew around the flowers with a black pen. The flowers were accented with liquid pearls and regular pearl accents are on the side.

Countdown to 2009 - Think Monday - Think ATC

Here is my ATC for the Think Monday - Think ATC challenge this week which is a countdown to the New Year. The watch is a spellbinders die done on black magic paper and sanded.
Thank you for all your comments on my blog in 2008. I look forward to new challenges in 2009.

Birthday card

I did Birthday Cards today. I made 15 cards today and this was one of my favorites. I'm so glad that the Christmas rush is off and that I could get some cards done. I did most of my cards with my Inkadinkado inchie stamps that I've recently purchased. I stamped them in black and water colored them and did some sewing on them too.

Doll ATC

This is an ATC that was a Christmas present to me from a friend. This is her first ATC as far as I know. She is a quilter and a doll artist. I am so pleased that she gave me her very first work of art.

Lamp challenge - think Monday - think ATC

The challenge over on Think Monday- Think ATC is to do an ATC with a lamp theme. It is crazy when we all have a challenge of the same thing how many different things we come up with.
Well I guess I want to be different this week and when I thought of lamps, I thought of lava lamps. We still have about 4 in our home and enjoy watching them.
The lamp and retro flowers is a transparency.

Red ATC - Think Monday - Think ATC

This is my ATC for this week's challenge on Think Monday - Think ATC. This week's challenge was to do an ATC that was red. You did not have to
do a Christmas ATC but after putting up the wreaths, decorating the mantle and putting up two Christmas trees I am getting in a Christmas mood.

Christmas corsages

These are the two Christmas corsages that I got back from my art group's Christmas corsage swap. The one on the left is from Cher and the one on the right is from Kris. Thanks girls. I'll enjoy wearing them. I have the poinsettia one on my red hat in my profile. I'll have to get a picture of the one with the dove on another of my red hats. I just love hats and I am a red hatter.

my head when I did this one.
