I must have been held captive by foreign beings since I have been missing for so long. Arkansas was on the agenda and then buckets of rain and several days of snow.
Several weekends ago I went to a workshop near Monroe, Louisiana which was taught by Michelle Zindorf. Talk about a dynamic and organized teacher. Unbelievable workshop. I learned so much and will try and insert the cards I made. Remember that this was my first use of a brayer and it was an incredible experience. WOW
This one was my least favorite card. I am not sure why, but it just didn’t appeal to me. When I saw the example card what I saw was three tombstones. I made sure to space mine out a bit so it would look more like the aqueduct that it is. The flowers were heat embossed.
I call this one Asian Sunset over Water. We learned how to do a reflection with this card without using a reflection stamp. The hinges are a punched piece that was bent in double and attached with brads.
This one is Deer in the Snow. So original!!! I missed getting into the upper left-hand corner with this one which threw off my sunrays.
I added the small red bird after our class. I needed just this little speck of color.
This card reminded me of Toledo Bend near where I live. It is a spit of land out of into the lake.
The orange doesn’t show up like I would wish in this scan. Love the playful tire swing on the tree.
These are no place near what Michelle does, but for my first try at her techniques, I am proud of my work.
Just found out that we will have another great-granddaughter in late July. No name has been picked yet, but just so long it is healthy, that is all that matters. They didn’t take to the name I suggested, Seawillow. That was the name of a friend’s grandmother and I like unusual names. Reminds me of when I gave my daughter some names before the births of her children and she told me if I wanted names like that I needed to have some more children. LOL Oh, the wit of that girl.
We haven’t done much lately but try to stay warm and dry. I had my fill of snow when we lived in Denver. It can go back on up North as far as I am concerned.
It is hard to believe, but our first great-granddaughter, Zoey Elizabeth, will be one year old in less than a month. Where does time go? Terrell Thomas just turned 18 last month and Emily Anna will be 20 the last day of this month. They surely getting old since I know it isn’t me that is ageing.
This year I will try to do better about posting. It took a long time for me to find the program to write in that allows me to put the pictures into the post.
Spring, hurry and get here!!!
