Sue's pocket-full book is so cool! The pages are all arches which Sue has sewn from brown paper bags - so much fun to paint on! Her theme is Angels and Icons. Here's the artwork I made for the pocket - picture of angel, highlighted with oil pastels. It's glued to the back of a Paris postcard.
Here it is in the pocket.The back is a page from a Paris calendar, showing Napoleon's grave. An angel image is glued over the top, highlighted again with oil pastels.
Sandi did this awesome technique I'd only heard about - using a tag punch to make a flower. Love it!
My friend Cindy in Ohio made this cute pastel card - so bright and perky!
Steph used a neat butterfly stamp that I hadn't seen before. Her color combo of red/black/green really looks good together.
The card from Sue is much prettier IRL - the punched flowers are all metallic and really shine.
Lori made this cute pinwheel flower card.Trisha made the pink/green card below - this color combo really pops!
Peyton made the tag card below. The tag pulls out and says "50" on the back.
Thanks for making my birthday and the whole birthday week so special! I am blessed to have good friends and family who care about me. Now I'm off to live the next 50 years of my life!

This shot shows the wonderful view of our front yard that I get to enjoy each day. The boxes used to cover all the space in the corner and around the table.
My wall of iris carts. My goal for the summer is to sort through the drawers and reduce the number of items I just "have" to have.
