We had a heat wave yesterday and it was 45 degrees out. Spring is on it's way with Summer soon afterwards. Woo Hoo!

What's In My Drawers? (It must be Wednesday)

I bet you thought I forgot all about showing you what's in my drawers anymore? Well the truth is that I needed to take more photos and by the time I remembered to do it each day, the sun was either completely absent or it was dark out. So I took a bunch this morning and here we go again.

Until I started taking photos of all my "clear" stamps I had no idea how many I had. I was originally going to post them all on one day but as I kept going I realized that would be too much.

So this little set of drawers houses all of my clear stamps and some others that wouldn't fit on the wall. (These are ones that I only use once a year for say like Christmas, birthdays etc.) I took all the sets out of the drawers and photographed them on a white background so you can see them better.



These 3 photo are all from the "borders" drawer.



These 2 photos are from the "swirls" drawer. You can see some of the sets are well "loved" and very stained from permanent inks. (You can't use the correct cleaner on them or it will melt the stamp.)

Playing At The Beach

We are supposed to be getting a warm spell this weekend so it inspired me to break out the beach images. Hopefully the basement won't start leaking again like last year.

"L" Is For Lime

Click on the picture to see a larger view.
Since Lime is one of my favorite colors you know that I had to do this for my letter "L" card. This is for an ongoing swap every month on my Yahoo group that is a different letter of the alphabet. I simply found a piece of clip art on the internet that I liked and created a paper pieced lime from it. I did that by printing the clipart onto a piece of white card stock and then I covered the back with reposition-able adhesive. I would then cut out each piece and place it on the colors of paper that I wanted them to be and cut around them. Once you peel them off and reassemble the pieces you get a lime. (It helps to print another copy to look at when piecing it back together.) The small water droplets you see are just dots of Diamond Glaze to make it appear like it has "dew" on it. (I also coated the inside fruit sections to make them appear "wet".) The circles background is a piece of printed acetate that I found at a scrapbook shop and it is placed over a white piece of card stock. The letters are frosted acrylic so that is why they appear to float on the page.
