Cards

I have missed making cards over the winter.
 Since I airlines give a weight limit, I did not drag supplies to Florida.  So it was fun to get together for a playdate with my card making friends.  The idea for the sea gull card was stolen from Donna.

This is my creation,

as is this.

I made the last card the next day.  I used stamps and gelatos for the water color effect.  Gelatos are a new toy for me.  They were great fun to use and I want to do more experimenting with them.

I did the cards, I went to a poetry reading, I went to a long restorative yogi/Reiki class which also featured aroma therapy.  It was a full weekend.  Today I have library volunteer time and the poetry workshop tonight.  Tomorrow I am going with friends to a story reading at the Renegade Writers in Burlington.  Then I am having a visit from the grand kids.  I needed the restorative yoga because I feel so pressed for time!

  2. Those cards are very pretty. You certainly fill those days with all kinds of fun activities. As for me, I have quit hula as well as Pen Women. Too much of a hassle to attend, and I am too busy renovating my house. Cheers!

  4. Interesting how different your Fl activities are from your Vt ones. It is like you have two different lives. How neat.

  5. I like what Patty said - like two different lives. It also shows what a wide range of interests you have.

    1. Patti and Linda--I am a Gemini so I guess it is fitting to have two lives.

  6. Your cards are beautiful. I especially like the last one done with the gelatos. A lovely simplicity there, that appeal to the eye.

  7. I can see why you feel pressed for time -- you have a crazy busy schedule! I had never heard of those gelatos -- I think Amara would love them! She has a birthday coming up....

    1. The gelatos are really fun to use and I think they give a lovely watercolor effect. I found them on Amazon.

  8. Your cards are lovely. Do you make them just to give to your friends and family or do you sell them also?
