WONDERFUL WEEKEND WITH A FRIEND

I spent Memorial weekend with my friend Jenny in Omak, Washington.   We had such a great time making cards, talking, eating, walking, and making more cards.

Below are the creations I accomplished through this time with her.

This is a great card…it opens up at the ribbon and you can then write in it what ever you want to say.   As usual the photo doesn’t do the card justice.

The fish are swimming……the saying is “Always by your Side”  I like that. this one was a real trip. Lots of sponging, inking, smudging, water colors. Very Fun!

My first favorite of the weekend.

Above  remake of a current card but I cut out designer paper for the vases.  I really like the dimension it gave it.   Of course it’s difficult for you to see.

This is an open pop up box. You can actually fold it down and send it in a regular postal envelope. Looking forward to sending these off to my favorite antique stores. (:

Last but not least….my true favorite. This is just a card front or a tag. I have not finished it yet more tooling to go.

Hinges and finish the door knob and such.  This was a grand experience. Hope                                                                                                                                                         you love them as much as I do!

Blessing, Leslie

Another Day of Creating….fun!

Hi It is a great day today because I had all day to do whatever I wanted and so what do I do?

Create cards…..well after I went on a 3 mile walk with Winthrop that is. It has been really beautiful here for a few days…however Memorial weekend to get more wet stuff.

So here are my two latest cards;

DEFIANTLY FATHER’S DAY!

1.  I took the basic way this time.

Layers of paper that were self adhesive with the banners.  A bit of twine and stamping the greeting.

2.  A bit more detail, but yet simply made.

Three layers of card stock including some handmade paper I had left over from another project.  Made this one Birthday.  Could be for man or woman.
