Little miracles

I went out to get the paper this morning and noticed this spider and web which was not there yesterday. Overnight this little creature created a thing of beauty for me to take a picture of. I'm sure that's what she was thinking. Anyway, I appreciate her effort.

the new vase

Posted by Picasa

summer flowers

Hi everybody,

We went to Mesa Arizona over the weekend to visit with dear friends and attend the Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook Expo. I was so happy to meet you all during our make & take in the Sunday International booth. We released my brand new Cloisonne Vase stamp at the expo. Thanks to all who bought one!! Here's a summery card I made with the stamp. As you can see, I stamped the vase with black dye ink onto pale green cardstock and stippled some rose colored ink over it. I cut the vase in two pieces (I cut the arms off!) and layered them on a black background adding some punched flowers to the bowl. The tall jar in the back is the bottom part of the vase turned upside down. I'm having fun playing with this one, hope you will too.

backyard salad

Hi Everybody,

Happy August! Here's our cat Stella enjoying a little "salad" in the yard. Normally she stays inside because we have coyotes living in the hills and canyons of our neighborhood. They like nothing better than a tasty cat. So, Stella was on a supervised trip to the backyard salad bar. I can't blame her for wanting to get out of doors. We've had a spectacular summer so far.

I took a break from teaching classes during July for family events but now I'm back at it with 16 classes this month. That means getting ideas out of my brain and onto the drawing board, cutting up cardstock and making kits. Take a look at my website for classes and appearances and if you can come by and say hi.
