Circle Sea and Shell Shaker Card

....try saying that 5 times quickly...haha

I've been playing with my new tool, the We R Memories Photo Sleeve Fuse.  My seal-a-meal machine worked fine, but for intricate shapes and curves, it wouldn't work.  This is very easy to work with and I have plenty of old photo sleeve pages..so yippee!

I used Seahorse Habitat set from Doodle Pantry.  I cut out the seahorse using my Silhouette Cameo.  I used all types of sequins.  Next time I want to use real sand.

You brighten my life

Gosh....I made 4 of these cuties, but I need more for so many friends and cyber friends.

I cased Wings of a Butterfly-Vanessa using Lawn Fawn Jelly Star Clear Stamp Set. (Still trying to get mojo back so casing really helps.) The sentiment is from Life's a Beach by Lawn Fawn. A little distressed ink, dots of water, pop-ups for dimension and I'm ready to send them out. Oh...white highlight pen and Wink of Stella.

Float Yer Goat tab slider card

This image always makes me giggle.  I used Float Yer Goat file by Doodle Pantry.  I'm just now doing my 1st slider card while everyone else has been doing them for years.

I'm flying (with my youngest son) to Denver on July 23rd.  My wonderful oldest brother, who has been healthy as an ox/horse, developed a rapid ALS. I'm going to visit, just sit with him, feed him anything he can/wants to eat.  He loves my grits and homemade peach cobbler.  I'll squish it up and see if he can eat it.  Anyway, anyone have any ideas that are cheap to get from the airport to my hotel in Denver?  The airport rental cars are $620 for the 6 days I'm there.  I'm hoping the hotel can pick me up...we'll see.  But I'm open for suggestions!!!

Charlie Horse Sparkle Shaker Card

My first purchase on-line was Charlie Horse by Laurie at Doodle Pantry (at the time she was with Clear Dollar Stamps).  Here is Charlie Bee all sparkled up!

I'm using a fuzing technique.  I ordered the We R Memories Photo Sleeve Fuze. While waiting, I used my seal-a-meal machine. I was able to make a thin shaker card completely sealed.  I used a clear envelop, put in my glitter and then sealed.  For sure nothing will fall out.

Don't forget our Ants in My Pantry Digital Challenge #7 at Doodle Pantry.  Get chance for a GC and even more surprises/chances if you use a Doodle Pantry image (not text).

Graduation card for Rachel

Where have I been and what has been going on?  I don't want to bore you.  All the events these past 4 weeks have been overwhelming.  I'm back until July 23-29.  I have visited many blogs, but have not commented but trust me that all the blogs I visited put many many many smiles on my face during the day and the past weeks which was much needed.  So thank you thank you thank you very much for sharing your talents and blogging...awesome inspiration and HAPPY!

This is a much belated graduation card for a young lady that graduated in May and now  college bound soon.  The card was made from an old Stampendous flower clear stamp. I also used Stampin Up blue and yellow ink.  I cut the star using my Silhouette.
