Lonely Loon (CLA375b)



I bet you thought I was referring to myself when I said "lonely loon" for my title! (aha...meanie!) It's probably not a loon either...no I don't want an ornithology lesson!  (had to use the spell check to get that one right)...just read the side of the stamp...yup - loon!
One of my favorite things when making a Stampscapes card is making a vignette picture.  Not that I don't like stamping all over the whole thing...It's just that Stampscapes has so many small stamps that it opens up the possibilities for messing around with the whole card instead of just stamping and doing nothing else.  You get to add hardware, texture, interest, messy fingers from adding gold and black to a frame...you know...cool irritating things!
Once again...go to their most excellent website!  CLICK HERE!

All the little Marbles....



Well...here we are!
I am currently picking up as many of the marbles that fell out of my head this last year as I can.  A therapist started the process...the little wench told me I would have to do most of the picking up myself!  Really!  No magic wand there!  Poor hubby was useless...(blank stares and head scratching!)
I'm going to assume the superior race (women...in case you were wondering....) can fill in the blanks all by yourself and don't need me to give long explanations and cause you to yawn while reaching for your coffee??!!  (green tea for all you amazing healthy people!)

And since some of my marbles are still lost under couches and tables...and playing with the dust bunnies...it might explain why this particular Stampscapes card was inspired by my husbands "air freshener" which is swinging from his car's review mirror...( I may not have given it back!...hmmm).

As usual...check out the amazing Stampscapes website!  CLICK HERE!
