Everyone knows how much I love ladybugs! Wow, I get ladybug cards, stamps, stickers, etc. in the mail from my friends - I LOVE IT!!!!!!! I am so addicted. Well, I have to make a card every once in a while that shows off a ladybug image that I have. I have created this card to send off as a swap but just love the image. It is all about the ladybug on this card!
I have really enjoyed Zentangling these days - is that a word? Well, it is very relaxing and fun to do. It is supposed to be Yoga for the brain. I really think it is! Well, I had to make a music theme Zentangle. I decided to make a record album, that was in the process of spinning! The items in the record were representing the songs on the album. OK, I am reaching, but it was really fun to do.
I started a new job recently. I am working for the same company, but am in a different department. Can I say Night and Day? Well, we actually celebrate things in my new department, so we were celebrating Admin Professionals Day. I made cards that we put gift cards into to give to the three employees that are work in our department and are under the Administrator level. I made three different ones, but am just showing a couple of them and the inside of one of them. They were all the same, but they were different colors.
Love this new fold right now. I am having fun with it.
I have made a card, to send as part of a swap with one of my card groups. This stamp is of a girl who is reading. I just love this stamp, since I feel like it is me, or even my daughter. We both love to read!
What a wonderful Friday this is. I am about to leave to go see my daughter, Brittany, at ECU. We are going to the Purple/Gold Pigskin Pigout Party this weekend. It should be a really good time. However, before that, I wanted to post this Sunflower card. I picked this image because I thought it would be perfect with this card design. The sunflower is a digi stamp found at PriscillaStyle Store. I love this digi set - especially the sentiments. I am posting this card on the CDAC Anything Goes Challenge.
The papers that I used on this card are old DSPs from Stampin Up. I thought the colors would be perfect. I hope you enjoy this card!
This is a picture of the card from the front and closed.
The following images are of the card being opened.
If you have followed my post for a while, you will know that I love to go to Wine and Design places to paint, drink, and snack with my friends. We have the best time doing this. Well, I did it again a few weeks ago and am just getting around to posting this here. We tried a new place this time and the instruction wasn't as good as the other place that we go to, but we muddled through and created a night beach scene. The chair was the hardest part of the painting, but I think the whole thing turned out pretty good. As always, I started with a blank canvas!
Then we started working on the sky:
Then we worked on the ocean and the moon.
We started working on the waves.
As you can see, adding colors here and there it starts to look like a painting.
But, it always looks better when it is totally finished. I like this painting.
I am 49 years young and have been crafting all of my life. I first starting doing crafts with my mom when I was 5. We did ceramics and entered them in state competitions. I won first place on several of my creations. I have done all different kinds of crafts but have become very addicted to cardmaking over the last 4 years. I love being able to design, create, and work with amazing people all over the world.
