Muddy Buddies

As you know I have been playing with Vellum I was looking through my supplies and discovered a stack of Grafix Clear-Lay Plastic Film.  I thought why not try to emboss it, works like a charm.  It is a really nice clear plastic film.

I thought since the little girl has an umbrella her cat should be holding one also.

Gardeners Supply Grow Shelter
The wooden garden boxes were already here when we purchased the house but we have such a short growing season in Washington.  A lot of times in September it starts to rain and just ruins my tomato plants.  I was so excited to find this grow shelter it is 4 feet by 4 feet.  It fits on top of the four posts inside the box.  It comes with clamps and screws to keep it is place.  It has large zippered openings on all sides for ventilation.  We let you know how it works this year.

Get Well Soon

A friend of mine fell recently and now has a black eye,  her arm is in a sling and she is really bruised.  I thought I would send her a little love with the card design.

As you can tell for some reason I have recently discovered vellum and I am having a great time figuring out how to use it.

Would love to hear from you about what brands of glue or adhesive you are using that don't show through the vellum.

Adventure Awaits

Another vellum design.  I had to watch a video to figure out how to attach vellum so the glue doesn't show.  I thought a fun shadow design would be something different.

Fritillaria Rubra Maxima
I have tried several times over the years to grow these plants.  This time I bought the bulbs in the Fall and planted them in a pot. Then just left the pot in my garden shed over the winter and around February I noticed they were starting to grow. So I placed them outside near the house.   They are not as tall as I think they should be but I still am happy I got them to do anything.

Life is an adventure

Something different from me, I decided to use Vellum on the inside, too bad you can't tell that.  I also wanted to extend the clouds like they were moving through the card design.

Petal Power

I decided to create an all white design.  I added a little mounting tape to the back so the frame had a little dimension. I die cut the two smallest square dies together then glued the Petite Four Border to the back to create the frame.  I thought it made for a fun design.

Everyone loves flowers

First, I would like to thank everyone who had the time to stop by and leave comments.  We are still in the stay at home order which was updated today to extend now until May 4.   I guess it will be reevaluated again at that time.  Now they are asking everyone to wear a face mask when out in public.  It is too bad each state is not having companies make non surgical masks for the public to be able to pick up someplace.   Stores are still dismally 
stocked, they have purchase limits on a lot of the items.  

I hope you are all well and managing thorough this very difficult time.
