Thanks

to all you for your wonderful comments on my work!

I just thought I'd give you a heads up that I am going on travel for work. I will be gone for two weeks. OK you can't feel sorry for me though as it is in San Diego so I will be WARM! hehehe and my family will be coming out part way through.

Anyway I just purchased the entire works of Jane Austen for the trip. I havent actually read any of them so I figured I would be a "captured audience" this trip.

Any suggestions about which book to read first?

Cinema Saturday - The Wizard of Oz

The inspiration for this card is twofold ---
First I am missing my daughter Sarah so I wanted to send her a card telling her that and second --- I thought of the poppies scene. My flowers are more brightly colored (I used some brads for the metal) and I used sparkly red letters (for the shoes!)

The Outside and Inside of the card reads "May ... your yellow brick road lead to me. I love you." (edit: fixed typo)

Items -- variance flower stamps (Cats eye inks) and a lot of cutting, Bazzil Paper, brads and stickles, and Tea Dye Embossing powder on the bricks.

Saturday Cinema Challenge - Cassablanca

Not sure if it is spelled right but HEY - I am doing a challenge again.

(THANK YOU to all my wonderful friends for helping me through this time)

OK here is my take on this weeks challenge
I used Bazzill paper, velum, Cats Eye Silver ink, Imaginisce Paper (Gift from Jamie TY!), Tim Hotlz mask (Gift from Lori TY!), Tim Holtz Black Paint Dauber (Gift from Sharon TY!), Art Glitter Ultra Fine (White), Ribbon, Oriental Trading Mini brads, DCWV blue textured paper. Couldnt get this song out of my head --- so here it is

I used blue even though it is not a traditional valentine color to keep the softness of the card.

The patterned paper strips are reminders of the slats (panini!!!hehehe)

This is a close up of the front to "hopefully" show the glitter.

Here is the inside of the card:

The strip at the bottom is for the person to add a note or sign.

A Long Time

I know it has been a long time since my last post --- almost a month ---
I have been dealing with some personal issues that I wont bore you with --- lets just say that I dropped a few things I loved in order to spend some time fixing some things that needed fixing. While it isnt done things are somewhat better.

I am scrapping again at least --- well on to the card (separate post).
