Frolicking Dolphins


Hello friends.  Hope everyone is well.
Snow is finally melting and all the animal
tracks, left by nighttime visitors to the bird feeder,
deer, bunnies, and early morning squirrels, plus little
bird tracks from them eating the seed off the ground, are
melting away  It is fun to get up in the morning and
see who visited during the night when there is fresh snow
on the ground.

Have a new card today.




Dolphin image is a die cut from Creative Expressions (CEDPC1107)
Paper Cuts Collection-Dolphin Edger
I cut it out with an oval die instead of using it as an edge die.
Background paper is from a 12x12 stack from Michaels.
The sentiment is a very old stamp.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a good day.
Until later......

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.  This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Many thanks to our Generous Sponsors for their Continued Support

BSS IDEA = HOW SWEET IT IS

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA.

We have had a cold week.  The sun did shine on Sunday
which started to melt some of the snow piled up.
 
I have a very good long time friend in Texas.  I tried to
call her for two days and couldn't reach her.
We finally connected on Friday night.  She is okay, but
she lives alone, and had no heat or electric for four days
until late Friday afternoon.  Her cell phone needed to
be charged but she couldn't get to her car because of
the three foot of snow that had accumulated.

Finally, the young woman who lives downstairs came
up to check on her and helped her.  She took the phones, hers
and my friends to my friends car because she had a full tank
of gas, and charged them.  She lit the burners on the Gas stove
and fixed soup and tea.  She covered the kitchen door with a blanket
to keep the heat of the stove in the kitchen.  We have visited
Texas several times to see her, and it has always been so
darn hot, it is hard to believe that the temps were so low and they received
so much snow.

I have a fun card for you today.





Stamp Set -My Sweet-Penny Black (30-785)
I used everything in the set except a second sentiment.
Paper-White, yellow and aqua card stock
I used lots of stickles, Glossy Accents, Liquid Pearsl,
gel pens and a white gel pen.
Lots of sparkle and shine, unfortunately the camera
doesn't pick it all up.
I love this set, so many uses for the wonderful images
in the set.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a good week.
Until later.....
