Here's a really quick update with this year's Halloween cards. The Frankenstein and skeleton are mounted using a spring that allows them to wobble back and forth when you play with them. They are based on inking the results of a dry embossing folder.
Here are a couple new birthday cards as well. The lily is watercolored tombo marker and the clocks are basic distress ink blending using a blending pad.
As always, click on the image if you like the card to get the directions.

I wanted to share my blog "creation story." I was great at creating and stashing cards away, but my friends made fun of my hoarding. I never sent the cards! I was afraid that I could never recreate the hard-earned ideas. I began photographing cards and eventually created this blog, which allows all of us to have a record of what we have created. The title of the blog applies to me and probably no one else who posts on here...but as much as I've tried to come up with a new title, this one stuck. I'm so grateful to all of you for contributing and following this blog!!
