Santoro Dolls on ATC


I've been working on some swaps for a facebook group

that I joined. 

Love the little Santoro dolls. Most are only 3 inches long. 
 
The paper that I used is from DCWV. Sarah got it for my 50th
 
birthday. The name of the paper? Hippie Chic. Perfect for me. 


And here is another set. Love that horse. Emily saw them and said

the way I colored the horse reminds her of Starlight. Rainbow Bright's horse

remember Rainbow Bright? 

Had a great afternoon visiting with my friend Kat, and her son Josh. 

The kids all came over also. Had chicken, sides, and I made an Oreo

ice cream cake for Kat's birthday. It was a good day.

Wildlife at Brunswick Lake


Saw some wildlife last week while taking a walk around

Brunswick Lake. Happy to see the deer back in the park. 

This little girl was just having her breakfast without a care in the

world, and didn't mind getting her picture taken. 


I was only a few feet away from her. 


This turtle was on a log just next to one of the bridges along the lake. 


Poor little guy. Looks like a bird had been sitting on him and decided

to use his shell for the restroom. Think this turtle could use a wash, 

and shine with Turtle Wax! 


On the other side of the lake at the dam this little turtle was

sunning on a rock. 


At the end of the lake close to the peninsula the ducks were resting and sunning themselves. 

There was a mother with her young children on the bridge trying to fee the ducks

but they wanted to sleep. They did get the attention of  a large carp with the bread they

were throwing in the water. 
 
 
tried to get a photo of the carp but you can hardly see it. It was huge!!!! 


When we got home I snapped this photo of a humming bird at the feeder. 

I need to take photos of the garden to share as I haven't done that this season. 

People have been asking me if we planted one, and the answer is yes we did.

Sending Loads of Love


I made a few cards while stamping at Betty's

a few days ago. I really love this one. 

Just a clean and simple card. The load of laundry was

colored with pencils. 


I should have took Betty's advise on this one and put the greeting on the inside....


The bra top would have looked better on the outside of the card. 

Oh well....next time! 

We got some rain and thunder yesterday. The rain was really needed. 

Going over to visit with John, and Emily today. Haven't seen the apartment

since they got it all fixed up. 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Sending Wishes your Way


I had one lonely panel left from that 12x12

sheet of patterned paper so I had to use it up! 

No modeling film used on this one. 

Just some lace to dress it up. The panel is popped up over

the bottom layer. I cut off the lower piece of the panel and used

it to make the banners at the bottom. 


Greeting from Stampin'Up. 

We had fun last night watching the fireworks. I'll be posting photos tomorrow. 

I'm off to the post office, then for a walk. Hope

everyone enjoyed the longest day of the year. When we

came home from the show there were a ton of lightening bugs in our backyard,

so we got to see two shows.

Torn Panel Modeling Film Butterfly


With this patterned paper panel I tore it in half on the bias. 

The bottom layer was stamped with a script stamp. I then

layered a piece of window sheet on top of it. 

The torn panel was layered over that. 


Hoping that this photo shows the window sheet. I like how

it makes the space between the torn panel shine. 


and here is a closer look at the butterfly that was done with modeling film. 

Going to the Brunswick celebration today, then later watch the firework show. 

So nice to be able to watch this from our backyard.

Modeling Film Beautiful Friend


Well I said I was done with the modeling film for awhile.....

well it's been awhile right? 

Had two panels left from the 12x12 piece of patterned paper, and

it was calling my name to put them on cards. 
 
The layer was done using Tim Holtz distress oxide inks, and the Gothic stencil. 


Here is a side view of the modeling film wings. I colored the back of the wings with

a pink sharpie marker.

Added some black pearls done the center of the butterfly to 

hide how I attached the wings with a mini staple. 

Going to stamp with Betty this afternoon. 

Haven't stamped with her for two weeks so I'm looking forward to it.

Just a Brief Note


Happy Tuesday!

This card should have been posted yesterday for mailable Monday, but

I was having trouble getting the blog to work. 

The briefs were stamped on patterned paper with black ink. Then popped over the white layer. 

For the greeting I used my Dymo label maker. 
 
Hubby had fun with Sarah on Father's day. Her and Jason came over. She helped
 
him weed the garden then they all went swimming. While they were doing that
 
I was grilling potatoes, and salmon for dinner. 
 
 
Jason left to go spend time with his dad. Sarah and her dad went

to check out the new Scene 75 that opened last year. 


Instead of wack a mole, they played wack a minion. LOL 

We have been in a heat wave for the last few days. Been in the 90's. 

Suppose to be a little cooler today. Thank goodness! 

While I do love the hot temps, 90 + the humidity is a bit much. 

Thankful that we had central air put in last winter when the heater went out. 

Was a big expense, but so worth it!
