Strike A Pose,
Shiny and Color Me Green
Strike A Pose
I call these my Belize boots because I always took them when I went to the rain forest. They were good for mud tromping and occasionally needed for snake stomping. I no longer take those trips to Central America so I do not wear the boots much. This is my husband’s remedy for slippery mops and brooms that just would not stay put. It gives my boots a sense of purpose, too!
I make cards for a hobby, and, as you can see, I spread out quite a bit and each card has many pieces. (My husband forbids me to use loose glitter!) I go outside if I simply MUST get glitzy. Since it is freezing outside here right now there has been little glitz to my cards. Since I have been blogging I have run into a number of poetic people and sometimes I ask if I can use their prose for my cards. One dear friend, Susan, over at http://www.thefisherlady.blogspot.com lets me lift whatever I want to lift of hers. I made a card yesterday using her eloquent prose to say just what I wanted to say in thank-you to someone.
I made this card for my son’s 36th birthday. He is a systems engineer so I wanted this to look a bit like a bridge. I put his name on the front in shiny silver tin with stickles to attach the tin to the card. I also used stickles (glitter embedded in glue) so the candle flames would be shiny. Do you think he’ll like it?
Color Me Green
I absolutely LOVED this prompt. Thanks, Andrea Dawn! At first I thought, “How am I ever going to post something for this?” and then I walked by my refrigerator and there was my Christmas picture from my 6-year-old granddaughter, Kira! She had made me (Mamie) green and given her Pop Pop green hair. You can also see her renditions of Mickey, Sebastian and Shelly, our three pups. With this prompt I get to show off her artistic talent and she really did color me green. Woo Hoo!
Thanks, Ashley for another fun week of hunting. You can link up with us and post your own 5 photos next week. Click on Scavenger Hunt Sunday in the left-hand column to get the rules. You’ll be glad you did!
