Odds and Ends


Just a couple things to share with you today; this card is my thank you card to my in-laws for taking us on their boat last weekend:


Nothing spectacular; the image is CHF's July Stamp of the Month, Harbor Scene, which I watercolored rather poorly; I should have left some white on the boat.  It is stamped in Stazon on watercolor paper and colored with reinkers.  The sentiment is from Flourishes' Violets; the bird image and the inside sentiment are from Crafty Secret's Seaside.  Bashful Blue and Real Red finish the nautical theme.DSCF4638

This one is a CASE of this card by Tami Mayberry; this is for my nephew's birthday, which was yesterday!  Ooops!  I don't know why I have not noticed her creations before this; she has a wonderful CAS style!   The images are from PTI's Star Prints; I just love this set and they fit the SU star punch so nicely!  It also uses the colors of Old Olive, Real Red and Basic Black, which I thought were the SCS challenge colors today----NOT!


I desperately "need" a light tent, as these colors just aren't true despite my adjustments!  This is a CAS card, as most 18-year-old young men are only interested on what's INSIDE the card, right?  Thanks for visiting today!
