Whoo Hoo?

Let me start by saying i pretty much stamp in the moment, i was at the kitchen island (my stamp room lol) i asked madi (who was buried in a book on the couch) "what does an owl say?" she replied "who who but with an extra o on the end." Sounds logical right? And No, it didn't occur to either of us to go and investigate if it was right or not. LOL So, story being told I made this cute little owl ATC for a swap. I just love this owl stamp from sideshow stamps, he makes me think of Macrame. I used a technique that is new for me, i rubbed lemon juice on the ivory card stock then heated it with my heat gun, until it had an aged look to it. Then i stamped the owl and colored him in with chalks and a blending pen. I added some copper stickles to the flowers on his tummy. Since he is the first one i made the next 8 for the swap will probably be Hoo, Hoo! LOL

"Yummy Pasta"

So here i am posting on my 3rd day! Let me start by saying "I love recipe swaps" and i joined a big one, an A-Z recipe swap hosted by my friend Heidi. We had to make 26 recipe cards of the letter we picked, so the end result will be an alphabet recipe book. I made a pretty simple one so i wasn't crazy when i was finished. I had been wanting to use my hubby's recipe for pasta and this was the perfect opportunity to do so. Y is for "yummy pasta". -Jen

"Just a cute chick"

Happy Tuesday

I made this card for a dear friend, from one chick to another. LOL Her favorite colors are bright shades of blue and Yellow. I also made her a special pillowcase, with bright yellow and blue flowers. I hope she likes it.
