Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

I'm a Sweety Girl

I'm a Sweety Girl Set is the prize this week
Monday...Color Challenge
Wednesday...Sketch Challenge

Joyeux Noel
is the lovely image that I got from
I made this for two challenges
Make Your Own Masterboard
There is purple in there because I used lavender card stock,
lavendar/pink colored pencil and lavender ink to use in the distressing.
It has quite a purple cast in person.

Now, for the masterboard. I read Vicki's tutorial on how to make
your own background paper. Easy Peasy. I printed out a lovely piece
of parchment paper (a gift from my friend Lois), gathered the stamps
that I wanted to use and chose Distress Vintage Ink to stamp with.
I started with my largest stamp first and just filled up the parchment
paper with stamping. I can't believe how quickly this card came
together. And best of all....I really like it.

Do you feel in need of some shopping?
RubberstampAve is having its Annual 50% Off Unmounteds SALE.

Just for fun here is a beautiful picture of a Golden Eagle

My brother says the eagle is fishing along the Bull River in Montana.

I love that master board, or background paper for the second card. I will have to check out the tutorial. Your first card is great too. Two very different feels to the colouring and mood of the cards. Brilliant.
