Hi all,

Here is the card 2 in my challenge in my group 52 cards, 52 weeks.  I was looking at a Christmas card when I had this idea,  It uses a joker glued to the back of the card to look in the door.

Hello all,

Ok on the yahoo group I am in, we were talking about how I have made my own sheets for the stamp to cling to.  Breif overview is.

1. I have cardstock first,
2.  Stamp the image of the stamp onto the above cardstock.
3.  When done, put it thru a laminator to cover both sides.
4.  All done.  I do one more step for those pages that have small stamps that like to lose themselves.  Here is a picture of how I do those.

This to the left is how they look finished.
 After doing the sheet and laminated it, I will get one of those protective sheets and put the stampped card in and I trimmed off the top,  As mine was A2 size.

This photo shows how I turn the protective sheet with the holes already in it to the back.  I will then make a hole or holds to attach the rings to .  I have found that this way doesn't rip the plastic..

Have done a couple of scenes as well.  I am in a mini-book group.  As its a RR mini book I have so far done one that just suited the ladys theme.

This is the 2 pages.

 These two go together as well.

  These two are two more pages I did for a mini-book.

That's all, thank you for looking :)

Hi there,

I have started a challenge on my group.  It is 52 cards, 52 weeks a year... so what I and some others started (I hope) to do this challenge.  Here is my creation.

I used a small set of cards, because that is all I had.  So I sanded the front a bit, Painted some gesso on it. When it was dried, I glued some kitchen foil to it.  Then on the foil I dropped some alcoholic inks on it and then mushed then let that dry.,  After this I put on the A for the ACE of spades.coloured it and then did a covered it with embossing ink and dropped that into UTEE.  This I did 4 more times.  When it finally dried this was the results.

Thanks for looking.

It is a beautiful day here, although I have a feeling it will be some heat later on.

Ok I know its a week, but my weeks lately have been busy.  The first is a green card I did for a swap.  The only thing was it must be green in honour of St Pat's Day.

                                                                                                                This one is for a heart Tangle
                                                                                                                 for a swap.
These two below are 2 more examples of
tangles, theme had to be eggs in honour 
of Easter.
                                                                                                  This one I did for a beginner swap.

Well thats all for now folks, other than these I have been redoing my stamps I have.

So I do hope you all have a great week.

Till next time

Hello all,

First Laurel I KNOW you can do these tangles,  I have faith in you because you already do such wonderful work.

Above is a scan of a challenge I am in.  It is called *Sun and Moon*, we had to do them on the same tangle.  Scan is not to good I think, the moon is a bright green colour.

This is a card I did for a 'Tropical' swap.

This next one was for a 'Transportation' Swap.  Sorry for the scan :(

The one below was for a swap about using distressed inks.  I love this one and found it very hard to part with.

That's all for now.

So have a great day/night
