simple thoughts

Had this piece of printed paper sitting on my table for the last 6-9 months ( can't remember) knew as soon as i seen it I wanted it to be a card in itself. but, did not really think much about it beyond that. ( Memory Box pp) the tiny metal dragonflies are from the bead isle at joanns ( years ago) the sentiments from SU. this ones 6" square in real life. Certainly celery sheer, Bazzill cardstock base.

Unity/Ippity Challenge card

there is a neat challenge out on the unity blog to use a banner tag or flag. So, this is stamps from the Ippity sets totally happy & the simple things, the sentiments from the Unity hodgepodge of happiness set. these were stamped with tombow markers on neenah classic cream, used an corner rounder to make it an "tag" added some unknown gingham and bakers twine to the hole and popped a bo bunny time piece brad through it too ( it was too much hole for the card front) that pp is from basic grey and the cardbase is bazzill. its 4 1/2" X 6" in real life.

found this old fairy on the bay a little bit ago, she's colored with copics and stardust pen. Stamping Bella sentiment, those "beads" are supposedly sea-shells... found them years and years ago have no idea if they still make them or not. recollections lace, SU green sheer.
the floral pp is dcwv, the tag was cut with an spellbinders die then trimmed with an hand held punch. ( a folding one dont ask me who makes it they are not labeled) the sheer ribbon have had for years and the textured dusty/greyish cs is Bazzill. This ones 5X7 in real life.


and found yet another "dirty" card

This memory thing really bites... lol, and then the other part of my brain says. If you did not photograph and upload this stuff do you understand how much more free time you would have to actually create? so, its out of order and late. but I did shoot it so here it is ( cleaning out computer folders this morning) Stampendous image with its sentiment masked off, had a goof of stray ink from its sentiment near the image, colored it with copics anyways and color dusted some milled lavender distress over the whole thing. lots of stickles.
This is 5X7 in real life, did it on the last day of the challenges and set it aside to dry so even uploaded it late.
