Mailable Monday # 103


I first used Irresistibly Yours designer paper and sponged

it with Hello Honey, and Tangelo Twist ink. 

I then layered Sheer Perfection vellum paper over the sponged paper. 

Greeting from Lovey Amazing You stamp set .

So today is the big day. I had to get up extra early this morning to be at
 
the hospital at 7:45. The knee replacement surgery is scheduled to take place at 9:45 am.
 
I won't be able to post while I'm in the hospital, so I'm doing some of my 
 
posts ahead of time. I'll be coming home either on Wednesday or Thursday. 
 
I'll post an update then. Hope everyone has a wonderful week.

Beatles Trading Cards



Several weeks ago my son found me something cool at the 

Goodwill. 

He found a box with a ton of Beatles trading cards. 



Most of them are black and white photos. A few are in color. 

Knowing that his mom loves the Beatles he had to get them for me. 

I'm not sure what I plan to do with them at this point. 

I think I'll just enjoy looking at them. 

Tomorrow is the big surgery day. I'll be glad when its over, and I 

recover well. 
 
I did update the blog for this week ahead of time seeing how I won't
 
be able to do so in the hospital. I should be coming home on Wednesday, or Thursday.

Sketch Frenzy Friday 03272015


Happy Friday and welcome to another fun Sketch Frenzy! 

I used the oval collection framelits to make the center layers. 

Stamp set used For Peep's Sake. 

I free hand cut the eggs with Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, and Soft Suede cardstock. 

The ears I put on the chick were made with the bow builder punch. 

I got my inspiration from the Cadbury egg TV ad. I love how they have the 

lion with the bunny ears on his head. 

Be sure to stop on by the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog to 

check out what the other designers have made with this sketch.

Butterfly on a Bunny's Nose



I had been walking around all week with this idea for a bunny card

in my head. 

I was having trouble getting it from my head to the cardstock. 

I used different circles from the Circle collection framlits, 

and the large oval punch. Little heart nose from Owl Builder punch. 

The flowers remind me of the flower power years of the 1970's. 

This stamp is from the calendar set in the Spring Occasions mini. 

The white layer was sponged with Pool Party ink, and the flowers

were inked with Wisteria Wonder. 

I used the decorative dots folder on the tail and ears, and the entire bunny

was sponged around the edges with Smokey Gray ink. 

Love the little butterfly lighting on the bunny's nose. 

Hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.

Surprise Bunnys


I received a wonderful surprise box yesterday. 

My friend Lisa sent me a mason jar filled with

eatible Easter grass, and candy. There is a little 

chocolate bunny, and foiled wrapped eggs nestled on the 

grass. 


She also made this adorable bunny card. How cute! 

Big thanks Lisa. What a great surprise! This

fits in very well with the bunny theme blog posts I've 

been posting all this week. 
 
John is taking me this afternoon to get my last gel shot injection in my 
 
left knee. I spoke to Sarah yesterday for well over an hour. 
 
We are chatting, and making the wedding plans. She also 
 
wanted to visit me in the hospital next week. Only 5 more days till the 
 
surgery.

French Fry Box Bunny


Say hello to this cute little fry box bunny. 

I cut the box using Basic Gray cardstock. 

Then just added some punch art pieces to create the bunny. 

Ears made with the smallest oval thinlit die. 

Inner ears made with large oval punch with Blushing Bride cardstock that

was embossed with decorative dots folder.
 
 
I used the painted blooms baker twine from the Spring Occasions mini to make
 
the whiskers. Cut three strands then use an overhand knot and tie in the center.
 
Attach them to the box with a glue dot. 
 
Cheeks made with 1 inch circle punch
 
Eyes made with 3/4 inch, and 1/2 circle punches. 
 
Heart is from the itty bitty punch pack. 
 
The cheeks were attached over the whiskers using pop dots. Rest
 
of the pieces were attached with glue dots. 
 
 
Easter much be just around the corner seeing how the past three posts have had
 
bunnies! 
 
I think winter is over because Skip cleaned up the snow thrower and put it away for the year. 
 
That is a sure sign of Spring! 
 
I had my last iron iv yesterday. Thank goodness those are over. I'll say one
 
thing the people in that clinic were so nice and good to all of us having the iv's. 
 
I go on Wednesday to get the last gel shot in my left knee. Then I get a break for the rest
 
of the week till Monday when I get the right knee replaced.
