Just one layer of sunshine

I have my own private battle with the post office. I have send ( and received ) such crazy stuff that now the postal workers all know me. If I try to mail an envelope, they instinctively pinch it here and there to find the pop top tab, the eyelet, the penny to make something roll down a tab ... and then they charge me for it.

So one layer cards really make me happy. I can stick 'em in MY mailbox with a stamp and know they will get where I want them to go without bouncing back like a bad penny .... for another nickel and dime.

Wednesday Sketch Day!

I really enjoy doing sketch cards --- plus I had to use a bit more of that purple and green  paper I love.  This is my first French card - Amanda is studying French so I got some special stamps to use for her.

Teapot Tuesday!

This card is for a dear friend who has always dreamed of seeing the ocean and running her toes in the sand. The teapot had such a hand made feel to it that I thought it really worked with hand colored paper. I rubbed my distress pads on a waterproof mat, spritzed them with water and pearl ex and pressed a watercolor paper into them.  Fun effect.
