Mark's Homecoming slideshow

Below you will see a slideshow I made after I went to New York with my sister and her grand daughters the summer of 2007. We stayed on the base, at her son's home, Fort Drum. While we were there, everyone got together to create the poster. The kids had a blast getting finger paints all over themselves and the poster. Didn't they do a great job! I thought the song "Proud to be an American" was very appropriate. My son, Nate sang the song. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for looking.

My Friend Showed Me How to Make These Cards

I made these cards at my friends on Monday. We spent the whole day just making cards and chatting together. It is so much fun we are going to try to make it a weekly thing. And I am so surprised how many cards I actually get done. When I am there, I am not on here checking out blogs, working on my website. reading my e-mail or working on an online class. Thank you Belinda for having me over to do these.

This card Is truly beautiful. I am sorry the picture does not do it justice. It is a lavender color printed paper. A 12"x12" pieced of paper folder in certain ways The idea came from someone online, I am sorry I have no idea who, but thank you

This is the inside of the card. Although it is hard to see, the bee has sparkly wings and it's yellow stripes are covered with liquid glass. I guess I have to learn more about taking better pics.

This is the Spring, or Pop Up Card that we made. It is also lavender and purple colors. The flower stamp is from Close To My Heart. I can't remember the name of the set. And the sentiment is from Belinda's large stash of stamps. I don't know the company that puts it out. The card stock I used is from MemoryWorks. It is called Prismatics Candle Glow Accent Pack and Spring Willow Accent Pack. It is hard to see, but the card stock is embossed on one side and flat on the other side. The printed paper came for the Vibrant Paper Pack, which I purchased from Wal-Mart.

This Shadow Card is quite stunning. As I have said before, the pictures are not doing justice. It is white card stock I purchased from Wal-Mart. Both pieces of Card Stock have been embossed using the dots and winter scene folders and the cuttlebug. It is also very difficult to see the glitter on the winter scene to emphasize the snow on the ground, snow falling and snow on the houses.

I had hoped this picture would show the glitter and embossing better. May enlarging them by clicking on them will help.
This was great fun! I have one more card to show after I finish the inside of it. I will post that later. Thanks for looking. Have a happy scrappy day!
