eclipse day

eclypse-machine2

Since I posted an eclipse card yesterday,  thought you’d need  update.   I’m near Los Angeles California….  and here’s my eclipse experience ,I put a box  with a little hole up, and got a little piece of the eclipse here,,.. not much but i did see the real full eclipses on Fox news, so got the whole experience in little pieces.  Below is what i could see, form the projection on the paper below the hole in the box.

eclipse monday

bleach-elyapse.jpgToday’s Less is More challenge is Perfect Holiday and next Monday is the day the United States will have a  wonderful total solar eclipse.    I thought I’d celebrate  this event as a holiday.   However, I  live in one of the places that will see only 80 percent ( if its a clear day), and since i forgot to buy glasses before they became unavailable and I just didn’t plan on going north for the event any way  ill miss the best part and only see a little darkness.    For the top card I used bleach and stickles as the corona and the one below uses white and pink tissue paper… primitive but fun…    where is white ink when you need it?

pine-cone thank you

pinecones-thankyouThe Casology theme is prickly..and my first thought was cactus .  When  I noticed many of the cards created  for this challenge used cacti, so I looked through my stamps, and found one with  a pine-cone with very prickly pine needles.   I don’t remember where I got it, but 3 pine-cones with bunches of needles looks  really prickly to me.

yellow dot ’62 bug

yellowdot-vw-note When I saw this week’s Less is more challenge One layer Vehicles,  decided to re-live an old memory.   When I graduated from High school my grad gift  from Mom and dad was a ’62  white  VW bug., and for my 18th birthday  my best friends decided to paint this white vehicle  with yellow dots.  That’s why  at my Vw club friends  ( So California Volkschargers) and fellow  college  students  knew me  as the girl  with the polka dot vw.   So for the  two challenges,  decided to put  Yellow dots on a Beccys place ‘crusin digital image, and  enter Beccy'[s place August Challenge. . It makes a great note card for me.

splash bday

splash-bdayI made a card for two challenges the AAA Summer Fun challenge and the Seize the Birthday -tie one one.   since i tied the shark to the card it fits.  its my  friend who likes sharks (collecting them not swimming with them) but I think  it’s cute enough even for those that aren’t particularly  fond of these  sea creatures.  The stamp is made by  PrettyGraftic.

pineapple on kraft

pineapple-cardToday’s Less is more was kind of impossible  tropical fruits???     I don’t have any stamps except possibly citrus fruit.   i would have liked to use  a kiwi or possibly a durian(what an interesting smelly fruit) and  they would be simple to draw if i were an artist, icant draw but love to stamp.   However I was able to find a digital pineapple stamp online from. Pfoinkle.  I colored it printed it on white cut it out with just a few leaves outside the oval then pasted on a kraft card.    it makes a great note card.

lemons&lobsters

lemonlobster-sauce This weeks Casology theme is juicy, i like using lemon juice so while thinking of juicy,   I found  this fun quote… (however if it were my quote it would be crab instead of lobster).   It’s a good play on Life gGiving One Lemons.    I love most things lemon … lemonade, Arnold Palmers,  lemon pies, lemon cakes ……etc and I do use the lemon tree gifts  from  my and my mom’s yards.  This quote as well as Eating Crab  puts a smile on my face.
