Long time no see !! Two entries today.....

Gosh it has been ages since I last posted. My DH and I have been ill with something - who knows what. Finally have been able to make a few things.

I am at the end of my time with 'The Town Scrapper' so am just finishing up some work for Phebe. She sent me several Greeting Farm Images and asked that I make cards for her. I am trying to get them all done before we go away for our usual Fishing time at the north end of the Island. We usually go for most of the month of September. We aren't leaving till the 8th since we haven't been well enough to get ready sooner.

I have made two cards and a special gift package. I haven't yet made the card to go with the gift so I will show you that one in a day or two.

Here are the two cards I have just finished. As you know these go on display in her store - so I only do the outsides of these ones.

These little people were like dolls - they arrived in their underware!! LOL and then had different outfits to colour up and dress them in. I have done the little boy here ( the girl is the one you have to wait for teehee ).

I have used SU Chocolate Chip paper for the card itself and cut it so when scored and folded it is a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card - haven't made one this size in months! I also used SU Pumpkin 1/4" smaller and placed on the front. I used SU Chocolate Chip ribbon and wrapped it around the card twice.
I then stamped the house image, again from SU, called 'House of Haunts' onto Imaginisce Polka Dot DP and covered it with clear embossing powder and heated it. I then used my large Spellbinder Oval and cut out the image. Placed it on the top left corner and found a very small ghost 'rub on' in my stash that I put on the right, beside it.
I used one of the Sentiments that came with the 'Greeting Farm' images, stamped it onto the Polka Dot DP and used two Pumpkin Pie brads in the corners and mounted it onto more Chocolate Chip Paper. The little boy was stamped on white, as were his clothes. Coloured with Copics and cut out. I placed him on 3D tape as I did the sentiment.

After I took these two pictures I realized I hadn't added my white highlights so I took one more picture:

Now this image is my favorite of the "Greeting Farm" that I have!!
I can't help but smile everytime I look at it :o)

Isn't she just the 'cutest wee thing'???

For this card I used SU cardstock again : Pixie Pink. I also used white cards stock and Imaginisce DP called : Baby Powder - Hiccups!
I cut the cardstock my usual 11 1/2" by 5 1/2" so that when scored with my ScorPal it becomes a 5 1/2" card - my favorite size these days. I think there is probably a much easier way to make the rest of the card - but since I don't take lessons, this is how I made it! I cut the white card stock to 5 1/4" and the Imaginisce to 5" taped them together and then cut them out with my largest round Spellbinder plain circle. I then attached them to the pink card. I coloured my image with Copics :o) and then cut her out with the next smallest size Spellbinder Circle. I popped her up with 3D tape and sat her in the middle of my circle. Then I made a bow and sewed a pretty button on it with bright pink thread and attached it. I added 3 medium white pearls. I stamped the sentiment from " The Greeting Farm" onto the Pixie Pink and cut it out with my 1 1/4" punch. I doodled around the edges. I then punched out a 1 3/8 white circle and taped the two together and pop dotted them up at the bottom.

So that is it from me today - but watch for my giftie in the next day or so - just have the card to make and it is ready.........

Really hope you are all in much better health than we are. I am sure you are all getting ready to enjoy your last long weekend before school starts.
Keep safe and have fun........
Love Candy
