It's A Party!!

Nooooo, I'm not having a party.

As a lot of you know, I'm a big, big, big news junkie.....I love watching the circus that is known as the United States Federal Government in action.  So when this month;s ATC swap's theme was patriotic...I had to throw the  two biggest "acts" in Washington, DC, the red Republicans and the blue Democrats.  I also added a ticket to the party just so you can attend the show any time you want to.....The flag was added because you know that's what it is all about.....the republic....you and me and all our children.....
So enjoy:

It's a Party                                                       

Become of a member of some party...and VOTE your conscience....

Proud Member of the Republican Party
I hope you love your right to vote as much as I do!!!!!!

Congratulations Kristen!!

Hello friends and family,

Just spent the day with my friend, Mary going to some of the thrift stores in town.  I ended up with some old games and more trim and lace pieces.

Today's project is a card that I made for my DIL to be, Kristen.  She just finished her work for her bachelors degree from Northeastern University.  Coffee is one of her favorite things so I saw this image used on one of my fellow blog group's sites a while ago so I purchased it to use on her card.  Image is colored with Copics.

The flower I received from a swap.

Congratulations Kristen

Hello Friends and Family,

I spent the day at my local scrapbook store (LSS) which is Stamps and More by Eleanor in Piedmont, South Carolina.  My friend, Mary and I had a great day volunteering, helping customers and playing.  Mostly Mary helps with the customers and I just flit around playing with all her Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps, creating...going to lunch...then creating some more until the owner kicks us out at closing time.   Today my assignment was to make a sample using Ultra Thick Embossing Powder in Pewter.  Right away I thought of metal...then gears...then this project came to me.

I used the new Cuttlebug - Clock Works embossing folder to emboss some chipboard.  Colored it with Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain Distress ink.  I cut the gears of chipboard also and embossed them with the pewter UTEE and inked them with Walnut Stain.  I used a label maker to make the labels....

Here is my

UTEE Gears Project:

See ya later, alligataors.....
