Easter Greetings Card

Here's a little card I designed for Paper Studio about a month ago for their One Hour One Card Wonder Class.   This card was made using a fun, somewhat interactive technique called a "Peek-A-Boo", fussy cutting around stamped images and lots of colored pencils.

Blissfull ATC Swap April 2011

I was more than a little excited about this month's Blissfull ATC Swap.  The theme was Steam Punk a creative area I'd not really gotten around to yet. (And I'm a big fan of the Doctor!)  So I thought I'd try a little something different.  This is my first ATC in the form of a wallet or booklet.  A few eyelets and some ribbon lacing for a corset feel on one end of the outside cover with "hardware" stickers by Crafty Secrets.
  I titled this ATC "Treasures" for all the goodies on the inside. Some Graphic 45 papers, more hardware stickers, and charms.  A little shimmer mist, gems and crystal lacquer to complete the card.
I received this beauty from my partner, Pam, it's her first ATC and I'm honored to call it mine!   Lots of tiny beads and gears and gems.  My picture is a tad fuzzy, probably from all the sparkly goodness coming off this wonderful ATC.  I do so love it.  Thanks, Pam.
I'll taking a Blissfull ATC break for May as there's so much going on with  Paper Studio and the Sayner Stampede.  I'll be back to Blissfull swapping in June when the theme is Weddings.

"Step Into Spring"

Back on March 21st Paper Studio had another ATC swap with a "Spring" theme.  Desperate for anything that may help it arrive... I joined in.  Here's my ATC titled "Step Into Spring".
"Step Into Spring"
I used all papers and items from my stash.  Creative Imaginations, GCD Studios, Stickles, gems and a corner punch.  A relatively non-fussy ATC for me and that pleases me to no end.   I'm trying to clear the clutter and that goes for over thinking when I make things.  My next ATC for Paper Studio will be near the end of April with a Black & White theme. A fun challenge!

Oh, Lonely Blog and a Fool's Run for 2011

Hello poor lonely blog in March.  Seems the long winter caught me.  I also had a bit of melancholy bring me down.  I'm not really one to be "sad" but a lack of spring weather is very exhausting.  I've been trying to  clean out the clutter this past month... there seems to be a lot.   My creative energy stunted due to an overwhelming pile of crafting stuff mixed with too many toys.  No more!  I'm bring in spring come more snow or high water.  Starting with a new pair of shoes, funky socks and a crazy race!

Only Fools Run At Midnight!
Fool's Run 2011
Yes, the run is at midnight.  It's my third year participating and quite a few of my family members are joining me.  I walk a bit, jog a bit and just enjoy the craziness of it.  There could be some 1200 other fools this year besides myself.    Bring on Spring... I'm more than ready for some warmer weather and rebirth.
