Shark Note Card (duh-nuh…)

Do you remember the first time you saw the movie “Jaws”? I remember it vividly…August 1975. At least we waited until after the beach vacation to go see it. 😉 I still stop and watch it when it is on our cable TV.

Watercolored Ombre with Snowflakes Seasons Greetings Card

My Kuretake watercolors were on my table for another project last week, and I played around with watercoloring over my Neat and Tangled stencil, playing with an ombre look. I actually painted it light side at the top, but when I was putting this together, I thought the darkest blue needed to be at the top (sky), and the lightest at the bottom (snow).

Night of Navy, Silver Mirror, ink – VersaMark, watercolors – Kuretake Gansai Tambi, stencil – Neat and Tangled, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), My Favorite Things (snowflakes), embossing powder Ranger Silver Pearl, organdy ribbon – Offray.

Flower Basket Bike Birthday Card

This is for my longest friend…she is not by age my oldest friend, but I have known her the longest. She moved into our neighborhood when I was in 4th grade (she was in 5th). My family moved to another state when I was in 5th grade. My longest friend and I have kept in touch all of these years by letter and now e-mail, Facebook, and the occasional phone call. I do treasure her, and I really hope that I have conveyed that sentiment over the years!
