Remember this song?? Some familiar faces and some that have disappeared from the "pop" scene.

When I saw this week's Wednesday Stamper, I was excited. This is a colour combo I love to play with. See previous Wed Stamper Post.
Seeing as I'm a little time poor at the moment, I took the opportunity to make this birthday card for a very dear friend who turns 35 in a few days and use this colour combo. Hopefully she'll like it.

This picture was taken 2.5 yrs ago and I just love it. Both have such baby faces compared to now. *sigh* again.

|Your Power Color Is Blue|
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.

I wanted to share this card made in a class with a dear friend of mine Sally Garrett. Sorry she doesn't have a blog, so can't post a link. When I looked at the new theme for Wed Stamper, I instantly thought of this card. Sally was the lady who gave me the idea to stamp on tags like this and she is an absolute inspiration! So I hope anyone from the Wed Stamper blog who reads this, will be inspired as I was. Colouring of tags done with Distress Inks (is there any other kind of ink!!LOL).

So I've been working on a skinny page for a swap I'm in. Here are the 2 examples of the pages. I'm not sure if I like the one on the left better or the right, so any feedback would be helpful. The only difference between these 2, is that one has more constellations (??) than the other. Like I say, any feedback welcome.
I'm not sure what's going on with my art lately, but the the two times I've been working on a canvas, I have ended up with a red page and a theme of reach for the stars! Not intentionally done, this is just how this page flowed from me. Maybe I need to do it a couple of times more, to make sure that that theme is done with me and then I can move on to the next.
Hope you are all managing to have a great one.

Ok now this theme was a challenge!! And I love it when I'm challenged. Whether it's with a colour or a theme. I love going out of my normal comfort zone.
So on to the ATC - not having any hand stamps, I decided to go with a Zetti like ATC, using one of Teesha Moore's collage pics, which I've played around with and altered slightly (colouring in mainly) and have used a zetti stamp in the background and Cherry Pie (squares). The word Imagine is from a Collections sheet of words. Think that's about all.
Please check out the rest of the Wednesday Stamper work here - http://wednesdaystamper.wordpress.com/ if you want to see some absolutely fantastic work.

I'm suffering from a dry spell at the moment. We currently have our home on the market to sell, so all of my tools/papers/stamps are packed away. The thought of dragging them out for an hour or so (I can only work at night, as have small children) put's me off. That's the laziness side coming out in me!!
I have 2 swaps I need to finish off and am hoping for some inspiration from Wednesday Stamper http://wednesdaystamper.wordpress.com/. One of my fav blogs to visit for inspiration.
So in the meantime, I've posted an ATC I made a while back.
