Tag, You're It

My stamp club does a tag swap each month when we meet. I don't usually play along mostly because it slips my mind and also I'm not really a tag kind of person.

I played this month though because the theme was "Life's a Journey" and a tag by any other name is a bookmark. That just worked too well together for me to pass up.
Not the best photo because I took it in the middle of a thunderstorm in the dark under my desk lamp which gives off some sort of unearthly light, but you get the idea.

Super Duper Girl

Look! It's a bird! It's a plane! No! It's Super Duper Girl!
I made this card for an open-to-your-interpretation card exchange called "Crash, Boom, Bang." I think since this exchange is happening in July they were thinking fireworks, but Independence Day is over and done with so I opted for what popped into my brain--the sounds a comic book hero make when fighting the bad guys.

You know: Boom. Crash. Bang. Biff.  The "biff" is always a favorite one of mine.

Anywho, that's all I got for you today.

A Taste of Ice Cream

Sometimes all you need to make everything in life feel fine is a scoop of ice cream. Sometimes you need more than one scoop.



Here's hoping that you aren't having a 5-scoop day.

Monday Monday Monday

It's time for mailbag Monday where I show you the mail I received in the last week. I only got one thing leading me to believe that one of you is pilfering mail out of box. Right? I mean that's the only logical explanation.

Yes, there are two cards here but the top one is from the previous week that got left out. Since we seem to be lacking cards I'll show you this magic mushroom card I made the other day. A friend said to me that her mushroom background paper wasn't nearly as colorful as mine. I told her that's because she hasn't colored hers in yet.

A Duck in a Truck

Love is in the air. So is humidity. It's okay though because we actually got rain to go with it.  For visual proof, see the photo below.
Yes, that is a rubber ducky floating the back of my truck. You can also see a zillion paint chips and the like from our recent house painting. The other fluff is pollen. No wonder my allergies are a mess. I truck in pollen from work!

Mailbag Mania - July 10

I only have one card to share with you this week. It isn't that I only received one card in the mail--I got three. I sort of never got around to photographing the other two. But that's something to look forward to for next week.
This card is nice and sparkly and festive and fun. It inspired me on a card I needed to make. I can't share that with you either because that picture is still on my camera.

I'm sounding pretty hopeless but in my defense, I'm seriously allergic to my own house. It got painted this weekend. Our little pink house is now a little brown house. I guess it really isn't "little" but it isn't a McMansion either although we contemplated moving into one during a moment of madness.

Anyway, it's the fumes from the paint (and probably all the dust that got stirred up) that is wreaking havoc on my allergies. Probably I should leave my house outside to air out...

Thank You Twice

I copied this from a good friend of mine because it was too fun not to copy. If you ask me, it's the paper that makes it. Or maybe the colors. Or maybe the design. Yeah....
