Happy Birthday!!

Monday. May 26th, was my beautiful daughter's 22nd birthday! I didn't want to post her card until she got it, which she did, right on time!

This card was inspired by my good friend Marg's Thank You card to me for working in her deco. It is a beautiful card and I love it! The birthday card resembles it in design only. The part that looks like a tab above her hat is part of the scanner. I forgot to put my usual black cover on top!

One more postcard

Here is my 5th postcard, only 2 more to go!

The image is from the internet. The pearly dots around and on the image is a neat paint that is raised when dry.

Here are 3 arches I created for an Altered Pages mini kit. For Mother's Day I combined them on top of each other so that they swung down to reveal each one on a card for my Mom. They pivoted on a brad on the lower left. The last arch was glued to the card, and I had a little brad holding them together at the side that swung away to open the arches.

Deco page

This was the final page in my friend Marg's deco, which completed the Music Deco RR I have been involved in for the past several months. It was a fun deco, looking forward to the next one!

More postcards

Three more postcards for my Colour Postcard Group, in Salmon and Turquoise. I'm beginning to like this combination! All clip art images from Altered Pages.

Some May Challenges

Since my DH's knee surgery and subsequent recovery, I haven't had much time to do much! But I did have these two challenges to do, and now that DH is a little less reliant on me, perhaps I can get more done~

The newest Yahoo group that I have joined is called Colour Postcards. It's a really neat group where we choose a colour combo each month, and make postcards for the people on our list, like a Mingle. May's combo is Turquoise and Salmon. So here is my first colour postcard for the group:

(image by altered pages)

I have 7 more to do...

The next piece is for my Byhand Artists group, for what is lovingly called a "Yalpha Mingle". We choose a letter each month (our own choice) and make a 4X4 page for it. This month I chose "P", because I am reminded of the upcoming Proms for the high school students. I didn't go to mine, my DD went to hers, it always seemed so feminine and wonderful, I wish I could go back in time and go to my Prom!



This weekend is a long weekend in Canada, called Victoria Day. It's not as warm as I would like it, but it's nice to have a day off from work. Only one month left before I can do art all summer!

Altered Book Challenge done

A bit disappointed that no one was up for the challenge, but I did mine! Here it is:

Oh well. I didn't advertise it either, so that may be why. I used images of NYC from altered pages, and a stencil for the edges and the folded piece (a stamp for the other side). The letters are rub-ons. The tassel is an earring found at a garage sale last year!

Not sure what the next challenge will be. It's been a busy weekend, my hubby just had knee surgery, so I'm fetching and caring! I'll try to add the next challenge in the next few days.
