Comic relief

Sending some comic relief to my mother. She lives for night. While she's a tiny, thin thing, and the woman looks nothing like her, it does resemble a few there! You wonder where all the bra-burners from the 60s went? Bingo, that's where. Ah, it's all good and fun. Hope she wins BIG on her birthday!

I'm so glad...

Seems I'm back to simple cards, but it's a start. Actually, if I never get back to being a technique junkie or detailed whatever, it still is quite enjoyable just to create, so I'll just be grateful for that.

Once you have flown...

This is one of my old, favorite quote stamps, by Stamp Camp. "Once you have flown, you will walk with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, there you long to return - Da Vinci." Went well with the bird spell I seem to be under at the moment.

Just fluttering by..

Spread your wings

Imagine that..another bird card!

I'm back!

It's been a long time coming, but I'm back...and hopefully to stay active!
This is a card I made a few months back for someone who really put some things into perspective for me. Thank you, Audrey! {warm heart}

This is done with wax paper resist background to start and a page from a french book torn away to reveal the stamped image. The heart (which is not black irl) is tied on with copper wire.
