Saturday, February 6, 2016's MY thai!...

My Son D'Arcy and his wonderful partner Phil sent me these great photos from their fun day at a Thai Food Festival in Yonkers, NY last summer..I couldn't fit ALL the amazing pics of ALL the great food on this page.. but I  can tell ya, I was mighty jealous!! hee hee

Lots of older papers ( some I fussy cut for the flowers and mason jar), alpha stickers and a sunburst embellishment from my stash...

I placed the journaling in a pocket on the back which states:
    + Beautiful weather
    + Great company
    + Wonderful Food
    + Lots of exciting new things to see and experience
    = The Perfect Day.

Let's Imagine...

It's been forever since I created a scrap page and I have so many wonderful pictures to scrap! I love CSI for their inspirational challenges... they really help me get back in the saddle.... even if I feel I have forgotten EVERYTHING about scrapbooking!! hee hee
I am following along with Challenge #187.. and for those who follow my blog, try a scrap page... it's fun and very rewarding, too!!
I used a LOT of Tim Holtz Stamps, Stencils and inks here, along with a Heidi Swapp die for the title!

Valentine Card 04...

I fell in love with this stamp set  ( Simon Say Stamp - Lila's Heart - sss101531 ) as soon as I saw it. I have used it quite often and suspect that it has a lot more mileage on it!!
I am also enjoying my Zig Clean Color Markers.. they are VERY forgiving for a novice like me!! hee hee

Valentine Card 03...

I created this card for a young boy.. thinking that too many hearts might not be as interesting for him! hee hee
The main focal image is an older stamp from Inkadinkado that I heat embossed, then colored with my zig clean water color markers.. the hearts were stamped then cut out... outlined in black and glued to the card for extra dimension... a little border doodling and that's about it... easy peasy, eh?

Valentine Card 02...

I've (kinda) said to myself that I would buy less craft supplies this year and focus on all the stuff I already have.... let's see how that works out!! hee hee
This is my second Valentine card.. the image is from an older Pink Paislee Stamp/Die set called "Pen Pals" - 01262
Again I used my Prima Water Colour Pencils... and a Stitched Recangle Mat I die cut from Lawn Fawn..
I outlined the hearts so they would pop more.. and added some glossy accents.. this is actually a very easy card to make especially if you wanted to mass produce it..!!
