A Geisha from some time back

Hi Blog Friends!  I haven't made anything new lately, so today I'm posting a card that I made a few years ago when I was doing a card swap.  The picture isn't very good.....sorry.  This was taken a long time ago, and I think now that Randy's taking the majoirity of the pictures, the quality is much better.  This must be one I took before a blog ever entered my mind.  :o)  I cut out of the lanterns and used foam dots to mount them on to the card.  Once in a while I only color parts of the image.  Her wings have Stickles glitter glue on them.  For the life of me, I can't remember who makes this stamp.  I know one of you out there probably knows, so if you do, please let me know. 

We're supposed to get snow today.  It's cloudy, but no snow yet.  Thanks for stopping by!
Hi Blog Friends!  I'm back from China..............just kidding.  I feel like I've been to China and back.  We've had so much going on that I haven't posted for a while.  Today I'm posting a "man card" I've made for a few guys.  I love this stamp, and the recipients seemed to like it as well.  I just mailed out another one last week.  Hope Mr. Granger liked his card.  :o)

I'm so glad that the weather has warmed up a little.  The cold was really getting to me, and I just couldn't warm up, plus my achy hip and knee where killing me.  I need to move to a warmer climate!  Okay, better get going and get this posted.  I hope you're all staying warm and healthy.  Lots of yucky flu going around.  
Thanks for stopping by! 
Hello Blog Friends!  It's been a very busy two weeks, and I'm so looking forward to things slowing down.  I guess they never really do, but I like thinking that just maybe......things will slow down one of these days, and soon!  I've been having big problems with Google not uploading my blog pics, and thank goodness Randy figured it out this morning.  Whew.............

Today I'm posting a card that a group of stampers made at a class taught by Lydia Carrell.  Once again, our Technique Queen (that's what our group calls Lydia, because she excels when it comes to learning and teaching new techniques) Lydia, was gracious and generous in teaching us another awesome technique.

The ornament is a Tim Holtz die, and the pine branch is by Impression Obsession.  We used a couple of different acrylic paints, and I'm sorry, I don't remember the names of the paints, but do remember that Lydia said she bought them at Home Depot (HD)!  I didn't realize HD had these cool…
