I'm NOT Deaf...

Not really...just busy!

Jean just cracks me up! She's from Art Impressions and was done for the Limited Supply Challenge on SCS...to pick a special day/observance in May... Better Hearing and Speech Month!

She's colored with Copics, stickles on her pinwheel, shaving cream background leftover from the other day.... true serendipity! When I color an image I don't usually have paper in mind, I just color! When I got ready to put the card together, lo and behold, there was that piece! Perfect!!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

And a card I did yesterday...I just love realistic bird stamps! This one from Our Daily Bread. Not only are they beautiful images but Kelley puts wonderful Scriptures and quotes with them.


It's colored with Prismacolor pencils blended with baby oil. The cool border I got from Mel's blog. It's just a template she drew that you can print off... trace on the backside and cut away! I tell ya, she has more tricks up her sleeve than David Copperfield! (ooh, did you know I got to go see his show one time....awesome!)

Now, it's on with my busy day! Hope yours is wonderful!!

Thanks for stopping!

Love that walker with the horn and tennis balls -- so realistic (I have a MIL in assisted living!) and the edge on your pretty bird card is super! Have a great weekend Dawn!

LOVE granny! And the "I'm not deaf; I'm ignoring you" ROCKs my world. When I was younger and my poor Mom (who was a single mother with hyperactive annoying kids) used to zone out to survive, so we got her a pin that said that. hahaha

I can't believe how incredibly brilliant that edge looks the way you did it. I like it like that 1,000,000 times better than feet. I'll have to case ya! You ROCK!!!!! :O)

Hey, how are you?! Two wildly contrasting cards here and I love 'em both! Jean is a hoot and the bird really is realistic and you coloured it beautifully (and not a frog egg in sight ;-).

Two fabulous cards, Dawn! I love the "fun" quality of your first card. I really love the beauty of your second. Your colouring is lovely and the sentiment is perfect!
