I tried for over an hour to post those ABC pictures in order and I can't do it.  I don't understand why...but I give up!

Chunky ABC

I signed up for a Chunky ABC swap with the British Yahoo Group called Katy's Corner.  They are a great group.  For this swap we have to make and send 3 pages a month so it will take a while to finish the book.  Here are my A - B and C pages.  I'll post what I get back too so you can see them!

Young, Old

Sorry I've been missing in action.  I was up in New England visiting our sons.  I had a great time, but it's good to be back home.  This is a card that I adapted from one that I saw at Bella Arts in Johnston, RI.  It's a great store if you are ever in the area!

I wanted to add texture on this card so I mixed 3 green Flower Soft colors for the tree.  I tried something new for the flowers.  I put dots of Liquid Applique, heated them and then snipped off the top of each.  It left a ring with an indented center on most.  I really like how it looks!

Paisley truck

I used wrapping paper for the background of this card.  I liked it so much that I shrunk it down on the copier and printed it out on glossy paper for the truck.  I wanted a shiny paint job!!  I was really pleased with the results. The stamps are in a set is called "Loads of Love" from Stampin' Up.  The tires are made with black fun foam and large brads!

New Video

I follow Taylored Expressions Blog and this morning she introduced some new dies that are specific to her stamp sets.  She posted a video showing how to use them.  I thought it was pretty cool.  If you want to see it...scroll way down to the bottom of my blog and click on the play button!      I have to admit...I was a little distracted by her wedding ring...it's gorgeous!!
