the more I try to catch up

the behinder I get! LOL

This card is for DMC little extra


To give you something else to do (just n case you're not busy enough) we have, as usual a Little Extra Challenge on a Tuesday for you. This time we'd like to give you just one single word as your inspiration, and that word is:
SUNSHINE




Apologies for the blurriness of the pic, I don't have a scanner right now and I haven't figured out how not to let my hand shake when I take the pics. LOL

Now just to get to the new challenge!

finally!!

got to do another dare for daringcardmakers

Twins or more

Hi from Keryn and it's my turn to set the Dare this week. Doesn't there seem to be more and more multiple births around at the moment. Or perhaps I'm just noticing as a member of my family is due to deliver twins in September this year.

Your dare for this week is to create a card using any technique, any style, to welcome the birth of multiples. If you keep the card long enough there is bound to be someone you know having twins or more to send it to.

Here's my attempt at a TWINS!!! card. I so hope no one is offended!!!! Keryn, at my age I hope no one I know will be having babies let alone multiples! LOL

I'm back ... again!





for now .. until the nest slump. I so envy those artists who can create all the time.

I took advantage of a closing sale on Friday and although I felt like a vulture, I couldn't pass up the deals!! Got some more gorgeous paper, 2 punches I've been wanting, a bottle of Crystal Lacquer (think I'd go crazy if I ever ran out of it), a gorgeous embellie and 3 gel pens all for $25 CAD! Like I said, you can't pass up a deal!!

I used some of the paper and the 2 punches for these cards. I have to redo the smaller one as the gel pen smudged. I'll have to crop and resize these tomorrow. I'm too darn tired to do it tonight! LOL

gothic arches and more




Some of my favorite paper artists are doing these marvelous Gothic arches using a template from Belinda's blog which I found through Nancy Maxwell James' blog and I wanted to try one too. While I really like this I think it's missing something in the space over the woman's head. I stamped a sun but I think it should be something dimensional. Any ideas, feel free to leave them! LOL




This I did for a past dmc dare to do something new or something you haven't done in a long time. This was using my alcohol inks in a way other than polished stone. Put a few drops between 2 pieces of plastic, insert 2 pieces of glossy c/s in between these 2 pieces of plastic and smoosh the ink around.

got something done




finally! This is a mingle that I take part in on one of the Yahoo groups to which I belong. It a This and That Mingle and you do a 4 x 4.5 'card' with the theme of whatever is happening in that month, holiday, important dates, horoscopic (word?) stuff, etc. I did this one for Women's History Month.

Felt good to get something done after a 3 week dry spell!

jeez!

My muse seems to have deserted me, again! Hopefully she'll come back for a visit tomorrow cuz I have things that I have to get done. Maybe I'll start and see iff she'll come out of hiding. LOL

I've been visiting blogs and everyone's making such lovely art, I'm drooling!

My DH has changed me over from a desktop to laptop and from Windows to the open Suse distro of Linux. It's quite a steep learning curve right now but seems so much easier. Only thing is, my scanner's gone kaput!! The light bar won't come back up so luckily I have my camera to take the pics I need til we decide if we really need a scanner. One thing we found out was the Photo Management app is a lot easier than in Windows! I like that!! LOL
