Happy Easter

You know you got it bad, when you see the eggs drip drying and think oooh we got distressed colors! ;) (brown eggs + paas dye) the footed egg cups (on the right) is a recent find to the greendawn stash... Hope your having a Blessed Easter too!


potential submissions cards...

This stamp is just HUGE in real life... The happy birthday is up on a pop-dot. both of these cards are 5X7's. (there is no black on them but i keep a black Cardstock on my scanner so it blocks out the lid...)

This image just totally cracked me up the first time i seen it... I ended up getting it unmounted from the manufacture (which saved big bucks and allowed me to buy some of their hysterical sentiments at the same time...)

should have time to play some more tomorrow as Tim is going scouting for Turkeys...(you know the birds that hide? and occasionally run across the road when your on your way home after trekking around the mountain all day?)

One of the things i have been thinking about is submitting some cards... and so these are a couple i came up with today that i may mail in... Just gotta make time to figure out the charts for the backs of them... If they are picked up by the mag that i am thinking to send them to, the what you get is a copy of the mag they publish them into... so not a huge money making deal but may be something fun to see them in print...(not sure why)

I actually think most the cards i receive in the mail look better than some of the things Printed but, that could be due to a lack of submissions too though...???


call me as soon as you get this... ha ha ha

so, yesterday i get this really cute card and envelope totally covered with FROGS from my sister in the mail... first line reads... Call me as soon as you get this... OK so which ever one of you reads this first feel free to explain the facts of life to LJLimaBean... no 1. if i pick up the handset on the phone, i will not know if i have a dial tone or a busy signal no.2 I will not hear it ring no. 3 I will not hear her voice or machine pick up. gee do you really think i should make my phone girl at the office call her or what? Next on the list of demands is the date we will take a vacation so that her husband can ask for time off and coordinate our joint vacations.. fact of life no (4oo98) we will not be taking any vacations until we have completely bought out Tims parents from the shop... for the half of a day we took off to travel to Portland for the ckc last month the threat (from the inlaws) was if we take any time off they are gonna flat out shut the shop down the entire time we are gone, they do not trust the workers to show up and work so, if we take time off our entire employees will also get the same time off work... OK so this is not good business and our workers never take vacations they take their vacation money and bank it and come to work. they cannot afford to take the paid time off so its not very fair to force them into unpaid time off... oh so plan for a vacation where we leave here in about 10 or 11 years OK? of course you are all welcome to bring your selves here... which is just totally we are not going to discuss this anymore... i did consider handing the phone to mil so that she could call all over the country and explain her self and her husbands paranoia but she is sick and retired so no telling when she may be dropping by the office again... and shes also probably right... (about everyone not working if Tim is not there to make them do it) oh and excuse the sarcasm, we also had a death in my mothers family (of which no one in my mothers family has bothered to write and tell me anything yet...) I'm totally positive that all the hearing people in the family have received phone calls and what not. (of course my husband got a call) oh and good news he actually remembered to tell me he got a call... (99% of the time he cant be bothered) so. whatcha think? who should i call first hmmm? hahahaha


Just some cards...

I'm sitting here laughing at my self... because i thought why don't you put in some of the cards you like best from the last month... (and they are all GREEN) hee hee Its raining! its pouring! and i have a fresh brewed pot of Coffee just done. and even better, I am gonna make taco's for dinner because there was no one with me at the grocery on the way home to go "oh no! not tacos..." :) love this little frog making a snow angel... Thinking this stamp maybe come my next years X-mas cards... (well some of them anyways) Doesn't this ribbon say 1970 ish to you?? it surely does to me but i just bought this like 3 weekends ago... but, I'm fairly certain i wore some just like it in my hair once upon a time... This was something new for me, the sunflower was done with a clear (dreamweavers) embossing paste. so the color is dabbed on through the stencil first, then (clean ink off the stencil) and fill it with the paste then after you lift the stencil off you shake some fine clear glitter on it... dries really 3-d and sparkley...
