A few things to share

I read Karla Nathan's blog daily--karlascottage.typepad.com and I must say it is one of my favorites. It is like visiting bed and breakfast everyday while looking in on Karla, who is a fantastic artist and paints the most beautiful roses of anyone I have seen. Anyhow, Karla loves angels and fairys and I told her that I had a neat fairy stamp and would send her a card. She very nicely said that she would send me one of hers too. This is what I received in the mail the other day. She had the card wrapped in vintage newspaper and ribbon with her beautiful business card attached. Inside was a great card that Karla had used scraps of vintage paper and made a card. It makes mine look plain. ( I forgot to take a photo of mine before it went off in the mail, sorry!! But I used the tinkerbella from the bella stamps). Go visit Karla on her blog and see if you don't agree with me.

I made a card for the splitcoast sketch challenge again and this time used a tutorial from Maria Bell (another most talented card maker and blogger). This one was with the doodle this set and I embossed the doodle flowers with gold and silver embossing powder and then cut out and formed a flower with some wire. Attached everything together with a brad. Then bent up the wire under the top flower and it holds the flower up. I love this. The photo shows the wire. it is really pretty IRL. I may try this again. I had forgotten that I had copper embossing powder and I think I would like to try a little heavier gauge wire.




Thanks for checking in today. Splitcoast seems to be down and I am bored. I mounted some stamps today and put some mod podge on a little case I made for my grandaughter to put her polly pocket toys in. Not sure if I like it well enough to photograph for you to see.
Jerry finished waxing the camper and it looks so nice. Now he is making a cover for the ball of the 5th wheel hitch so you don't get grease on you when you walk in front of it. I love my camper!!!
It is hot here today. The dogs are going in and out. They are bored too.
I should make a card today. I want to do the gatefold card from Beate, but with splitcoast down, I can't go and get the instructions. So.....
Cheryl out!!
