Take a Word #40 Song

Here's my take on the theme "Song".  I couldn't decide on a particular song, so I thought I'd focus on choirs, since their songs can be so stirring.  Thanks for stopping by!

SPA - Things with Wings

I haven't made a postcard for a while, so when I saw the theme (and since my granddaughter is out in the swimming pool with the "big" kids), I thought I'd see what I could come up with.  Finally had a chance to use my Octopede stamp, lots of smooshed ink, sloppy embossing (couldn't have done it better if I tried) and here's my little mail girl...or something! :o)

Take a Word #39 Sepia

Yvonne has created such a beautiful piece of art for this challenge.  My background is painted, although the color is not scanning as a real sepia, maybe it's time to invest in a better scanner.  But, a little stamping and embossing and using some images from Rebelsher's collage sheets, I created my contribution this week.  Still super hot here and with the humidity, phew!  Thank goodness for air conditioning...I think its inventor should be put up for sainthood! :o)

Take a Word #36 Stars and Stripes

Here's my offering for our theme this week.  I used a darling Paper Whimsy image and a few little bits, smooshed some red and blue ink onto the burlap and finished it off with a background of music and specialty paper for the stripes.  This piece also qualifies for Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog (Cynthia) this week!   Mighty glad you stopped by and I hope you like this piece!


I'm not much for making jewelry, I'm not even sure if this pendant qualifies, but I figured I'd try.  I used an image from Moonlight Journey's Memories collage sheet...trimmed out the little girl and gave it a go!  Thanks for looking, opinions appreciated!
