A Special Thank-you Card


This week's Squigglefly Challenge is "Just Around the Corner" (SFC 2113). I used a corner rounder on my house (you can't really see it that well but I rounded three of the house's corners) and I used a Spellbinder's Die that has rounded corners. My image is from Squigglefly and is designed by Cheryl Alger (Just Be Yourself).

I needed to make a Thank-You card for my daughter to give to a very special person who gave her a very special hand-made wedding present. I tried to add as many layers as I could as I love mega-multi-layered cards but rarely do them as hubby chokes when he mails them.

Everyone has a corner rounder of some kind so grab a Squigglefly image (remember there are free ones in the store) and come join in the fun (and have a chance to win a Squigglefly image as well).

Happy Memorial Day Hugz to all.

  16. Wow, look at this. How fun is that. Does this have 122,000 layers....I think you might be giving me some competition in the layer department....lol I thought I was the only one single- handedly trying to keep the Post Office afloat. As a matter of fact, they were going to do away with Saturday deliveries but when I threaten not to send any more cards through the mail, they axed that idea pretty quickly....lol I just have to stay away from International Mail. When I sent a card to Canada this year and it cost me almost $7 well they had to have the post master pick me up off the floor when I fainted and it cause and unwanted scene in the post office. The older lady that patted my hand when I was coming too said "Young Lady $7 isn't so bad, I paid $70 to send two boxes of Cornflakes and a package of socks to my son in Australia". Yeah, well the $70 story is a true one-you can't get certain cereal we have here in the US in Australia....lol

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
