Another Drawing

This drawing was done using promarkers.  Certainly colorful.

My painting

Trying out some new crafts lately with Anat Goldich, a great teacher.
The first one here was done with acrylics, and no, I do not know
how to draw. But you don't need to have drawing abilities to paint
such pictures.  The picture is on paper using acrylics, and stencils.

Card For 80th Birthday.

We now have a shop here selling lots of craft
items at good prices, so now I don't have to
order so much from abroad.  I do order from
ebay occasionally, mainly dies.  But we do
have some great craft shops here too - so no
complaining.  One thing I don't understand is
that a company in England 'Create & Craft',
which I believe is the largest company of its
kind selling craft items on cable TV, does not
deliver to Israel, but it does deliver to nearby

Following is a card I made for a daughter's
mother-in-law - I hope she likes it.

Birthday Card For 6 Year-Old Girl

Wow, didn't realise it has been so long since I last
wrote here.  It isn't that I haven't been making cards,
as I have. 

No guessing my six year-old granddaughter's favourite
characters of the moment.  The background of the card
I made by tearing up papers and gluing the pieces

Wedding Card 1/3

I really enjoy making wedding cards and I've made three
in the last couple of days.  The cards I made by cutting out
two pieces of card using the largest die of the A2 Matting
Basics A, then using my Score Buddy I scored a line towards
the top of one of the pieces. I then stuck the two pieces together. 
This way I have another shape card, that I don't think I have used

A Scrapbook Page For An 18 Year Old

I must admit that it is harder for me to make scrapbook
pages than it is for cards, and I never know what to write.
Luckily I was able to use  the sentiments on my page from
CraftArtist digikits.  In fact even the butterfly and starts are
also from a CA digikit.  I copied just the photo part of the
page onto photo paper, cut the photo out and pasted it over
the original photo.  To stick down the string I used a
glue gun.  I am happy with the way the page came out
- it is not too fussy (I do like my embellishments and

February Bingo Challenge at "Catch The Bug Challenge Blog"

It is taking me time to get down to adding to this blog. It isn't
that I haven't been busy making cards, because I have. Now I
have finished an order and various family craft projects, I had
time to make a card for a challenge at Bugaboo's blog.  I love
Bugaboo images as they are so easy to use and are humorous.
I used the bingo line - Designer Paper, Flower, Pearl.
