Hi to you all,
Yes once again it has taken me a while to get behind the computer....I was speaking to some one on Friday afternoon. The topic was when was I going to post again???????
The answer- Sunday afternoon was my plan.
I have been busy again... behind the scenes getting WS done and giving them. Getting a heap of LO's done for Michelle at SCRAPDELIGHT. She bought back lots of goodies from the CHA,..these will be posted in her e book on the stores bog. Of course, all the other talented members of the DT will be featured. Well worth checking it out as I have seen them all. It will blow you away!....and to top it off. I was on crutches for a few weeks. Try scrapping with one leg up high when you are a stand up scrapper! I also had my right leg treated for those nasty V......Veins. I think I have have more problems now than before the treatment. So now I can not stand for long with out pain.....Tough at the top!...where there is a will there is a way....and I found it!
 Well thats my excuse this time any way....
and now to get back on track.
This will be a laugh....I have tried my hand at card making! It was not as easy as I thought it would be...there is not as much room to work with. Give me a break, I started out as a double Lay Out Gal.The brain has to be re-programed to think smaller, but give it some time and I shall get it right. One needs smaller dies etc....what a pain I had to go shop again.  What do they say....fake it till you make it......Here goes.

 This is a card I made for a scrap girlfriend that had found her new home. 
That is why the title is "FOUND" We had a scrap day, and I was blown away with where she lives...her little cute house is in the middle of almost no where...
if that is possible here in Holland, on a farm.
 And,she had the cheek to complain that she had not been able to have a scrap room.....
my answer was" you have a scrap house!" Marjo is now living on her own...with her cat...need I say she can scrap when ever and where ever she wants! By the end of the day, she did agree with me. 
In all we had a fun day. I did not get much done for my self, but I  did get to practice on making my flowers for every one and I scored a lot of points on the day.

 I was a big fan of  "Magnolia Stamps" 
I do like them still and have a substantial collection...but don't use them as much as I had hoped to. This time I did. I was happy with the results..for now any way. You can see I colored with "Glimmer Mist" and cut the stamped forms out to make it 3d.
I cut the tag  from the Tim Holtz tag die. Also using the oval name plate on the same die. This is another of his dies that I think is a must have...Love it! 
You guessed it! 
I worked it with Gesso then sprayed it to match the colors used. I also sprayed the back ground with gesso. Handy for this sort of thing, in a spray can form.

I used the MME .....Lost & Found label for the title. 
You will find this on the cut away piece on the bottom of the design paper. Stamped the name plate with a stamp from "UNITY" bitty stamps. Purchased at The cotton tag ribbon is also dipped in the "Glimmer Mist"

Tags to come on my next post.
