Yes, It's been a while...

Well, I know it's been almost a year since I posted here-sorry about that!I am going to try to do better. I actually have been challenged by my buddy, Fran to make at least a card a month and post on my blog. I honestly have been quite the slacker in doing any kind of arting, so she's kicking my butt in gear to get busy LOL! I have good intentions of making more than one card a month.. but not sure that'll happen. At least with Fran's challenge, I HAVE to do at least one card a month... Thanks Fran :)

I'll try to catch up on a few things:

(April, 2011) I made this card for my brother's birthday. He takes beautiful Louisiana wildlife photographs, so I had to use my camera stamp. You can see his photos here.

This is actually ONE card, but I'm showing 3 views of it. It's called a Viewmaster card. The blue notched thing on the right with the arrow turns and a different stamped picture will show up in the camera lens. I put a little piece of clear acetate in the lens so it appears blurry in the photo, but isn't in real life. The camera is on pop dots, so it's a bit lifted off of the page.

(May, 2011) I made this card for my mom for Mother's Day. Just a simple card (all of my cards tend to be pretty simple). I'm not loving this one, but it is what it is. My mom seemed to like it lol.

The next two projects were actually made in 2012 (miracle lol).

First are these "lilac panties" I made for my friend, Mitzi. I made a little set of these for her last year .. sort of as a joke. Her daughter is getting married and loved them, so wanted a few more so she can use them as invitations to her bachelorette party lol! There is no die for these .. everything is hand cut LOL! Fun to make, though!

The second card was a simple card I made for my son's girlfriend. She loves owls ... for some reason I thought I "needed" the Stampin Up owl punch (had never used it).. so this was perfect opportunity for me to finally make an owl! (Looks like I like this color combination lol)

That's about it for now. There are a few other things I did work on last year (a 4x4 swap), that I might add later, but today is the end of the month and I promised Fran I would post!
