Well, it's been a while and I have not had time to do any art but I did want to share some things with you. We went to a wedding and they had a photo booth. So we had our pictures made. We opted to hold up little signs instead of using the props they had to dress up in. I really like the 2nd best. We had a great time at the wedding. It was held here. It was up a very steep mountain at the Cliffs of Glassy which is about 1 1/2 hours from our house and the reception was at the Venue in Travelers Rest, SC. It was a very fun time!
Here is the Double Dutch card that I received from Yooper in my online art group, An Affair with Art (AAWA) and the ladybug ATC I received from Ellen. My Grandson is a space nut so he will love the card and I adore the cute ladybug ATC!
And I cannot believe that the orchid has 6 new buds on top of the 20 blooms that it already has on it! Wow!

This year the theme was umbrellas and the 4x4 had to be chunky. This is my first 4x4 and I will have to make one for each person that signs up to work in the book. I did the background in an embossing folder that has a shell on it and then I inked it. I added the umbrella picture with a funky border and used a paperclip with a jewel on it to hold it. I love the quote from a John Denver song and then I added a heart with gold distress stickles and a brad and another jewel. Our books in AAWA are always a joy for me to look at and I cannot wait to see everyone's art for this one. The scan on this is not great since it is so dimensional but I think you can see it enough to tell what it is.
here. I did this one for someone in our online art group, An affair With Art (AAWA). To make it even more challenging, Susan in AAWA asked that we use a postage stamp on it somewhere also. I think it turned out very pretty and made one more to put into my cards.
In case you cannot see it, because the scan is not very good with it being dimensional, It says,
"Ladybug, Ladybug fly away home. Your house is on fire and your children all gone.
All except one and that's little ann for she crept under the frying pan."
Anyway these ATCs will go to someone in my online art group, An Affair With Art (AAWA).
