Patriotic Book Pages Begin!





On a recent ART Retreat I was able to complete my Patriotic Book and I'm really satisfied and most pleased!  I'm not a book maker so put mine together with my Bind It All but I'm good with that too.  I have to admit there were some awesome books there and mine didn't compare.  The first spread shows my covers front and back.  The second and third spreads feature God Bless America which I believe He truly has and pray He will continue to do so.  I had fun doing the wave handwriting of the song.  Spread 4 features my husband and grandson both Navy men...my husband when we were first married 49 years ago and grandson spent his 4 years on the USS Ike  - proud of both of them!
The 5th spread are just images I love as is a lot of this book.  I'll share more in a couple of days.
Enjoy your day!

Thinking of the SEA!


Today I'm thinking of the SEA - it has always been my favorite place to be!  As we've gotten older, we do not spend as much time there but it still has that special call.  My hubby and I are celebrating our Anniversary today and as I reflected back I could not help but think of all the times the SEA called out to us - fun times.  Enjoy your day!

Happy Card!

I created this card yesterday while spending time in my ARTspot enjoying time to do what ever I cared to - I made several cards and worked in a book I'm doing - how fun in that!
I've only returned to creating and my blog recently, so don't have many new supplies and
products to work with, but I've always enjoyed using what I have.  So, I literally canvased through
my stash and made use of what I had.  On a cream card base I added a couple background
papers that I liked and then added the large sunflower...nothing that special but oh, so fun!
This will probably go out as a RAK at some point.  Enjoy your day!

Happy Fourth of July!

I'm hoping each of you enjoy your holiday weekend
 and how wonderful we can all celebrate our freedom! 
Whatever your plans are I hope it is surrounded with love,
friends, family and happiness!
Enjoy!

I Do Love a PostCard!


I have lots of July birthday's coming up and special Anniversaries, including our own, so I got busy today and made a couple cards and postcards.  This postcard was scanned before I addressed it because I didn't want any addresses showing up here on my blog - besides, suppose the recipient checks out my blog - sure don't want to give away my surprise!  Hope you have had a good day and perhaps created something lovely!

Since reconnecting with wonderful ART friends again, I'm really enjoying creating and trying some things I'd really gotten away from...well, that was most any kind of ART!  I was in a Patriotic mood over the weekend and kept picking up this Graphic 45 paper.  I'm pretty sure it is their Christmas paper but what the heck.  I printed and pasted little miss Betsy and added the July 4th burst, stamped Post Card on it and it became my Fourth of July card for someone...it may even become my sister's birthday card or perhaps my hubby's anniversary card coming up soon (July 7 & 8 respectively).  Let me know what you think...enjoy your day!

I've been up and enjoying my ARTspot already this morning and hope each of you are having a wonderful day.  It is hot here but we may have a little rain on the way!  Since I'm unable to post to my blog using my old Windows Vista desktop, I'm trying to get my laptop up and going and scanning pictures to a jump drive and then posting here. I created this card a bit back for a friend on her way to France.  It was a great trip for her and said the card just got her all ready to go.  I've a couple of swaps to work on that has me all excited but first, my grown precious grandson will be in town for the weekend and I plan to be with him as much as possible.  Enjoy your day!
