It was a steal!

Thank you Joanna for this:
Feb 5 you asked how we get inspired for a card. Since I've just recently made several for birthdays, mother's day, father's day I have to say, I just scraplifted. Found something I kind of liked and transformed it into my own for the person I was making the card for. I'm still new to this and so I use sketches for my layouts and scraplifting to find my inspiration.

So Please email me @ colombean_ny@yahoo.com with your address and I'll mail out to you on Monday! You are greatly appreciated =)
Oh, and you are too PDRNC =P

Gooood Morning!

Ugh I am such a morning person I gross myself out!

Well I am doing my best to live without the computer. It sucks. But that does leave more time for studying and scrapping, so I am here to share my layouts! (cus you don't want me to try and teach you anything I've learned...)

So this LO is one I did of my little cousins, when they were smaller :sniff sniff:. I was being annoying and cut out the flower from the paper (this is the green stack[?] from DCWV. don't worry, it's not a DCWV post...this time). So here they are sitting on a rock at the river looking all angelic and such. Too bad I don't have the next picture which is her pulling his ear laughing and him screaming... drats.

Now, I was going through my scraps. & I realized I have way too many. So I figured that every time I make a LO, to diminish the scraps, I will be making a card. (yea, lets see how long this lasts....). I cut the birdies out and added some musical notes (hand drawn). Not bad on the card if I do say so myself...

& this one! you may recognize the paper if you've seen previous LO's. It's from the Recollections collection at Michael's. The design is also pretty the same, but I can't help it! I love the vintage paper with the tears in it! I did some machine sewing (as opposed to hand stitching...never mind, bad joke... moving on...) And some blingy in a corner. I couldn't get the left over thread to stay in the back. Although I don't remember it having been out front when I was finished. hmmmm...

Here's the card. I'm being uneventful...

I think this one is my favorite. I love the colors and the patterns. Luckily I didn't have to go out and buy them and that someone bought them to me. Or else this picture would have stayed sitting on my shelf looking for inspiration for another 6 months. Sad isn't it, when you can't finish a LO because the colors or papers you have don't inspire you...?

Here's a little closeup. I had to add a big of glitter to the flower. I just haaad to.

I will be more eventful with this card because I love it! The patters of this paper are so awesome! I hand cut some butterflies and backed them up with some black paper so you could see them better...

Speaking of seeing them better...

So that is my update for you!

Now. On to what I promised. I have made some flowers and personally hand cut bunch of butterflies. & since I don't want to fill up on cards, I'm putting these 3 in the envelope. I'm just going to ask you to do the following:
I tend to ask a lot of questions in this blog, and I don't get any answers! Find a question and answer it. Today's post will not count! Just state the date and question with your response. I will be randomly selecting a winner. & since I don't have internet, I will be back on Friday to see who's responded. Now get to it! Tell your friends!

I'm hoping the giveaways get better. But I'm pretty sure my blood and sweat aren't too bad. =)
