Wednesday comes so fast.   It was a productive week.

  I finally washed the  orange and yellow fabric from the storage containers that Tripper has been sleeping on.  These need to be cut up and turned into more cat seat covers. 

This week a  swap page was successively completed.  The pages are for a swap on the All Thing Tim Yahoo Group.  We had to use at least one technique from his class Creative Chemistry 101.  Since my collection of his products is limited my background techniques were from Class 1 Wrinkle Free Distress.  Attempted were flowers, made from Alcohol inks on glossy card stock, a dismal failure, so i made the flowers from  my Dylusions Sprays on watercolor paper then cut with a Sizzix die.    

For some reason when presented with the idea of making 10 pages where the main event was a technique, I froze, the muse departed.   Finally she flashed an idea and added some dyed cheese cloth and 3 little tags stamped with peace, love and happiness in Japanese and English.  

Here is  card made for my friend Kay, for Mother's Day.  Behind the figure of me is Japanese paper fixed to a distressed tag.  Just below the green ribbon is a charm hummingbird made by Susan Clarke.  She quit making these incredible embellishments and switched to buttons!  

This week also saw the completion of my travel journal on the Breaux Bridges trip. What a busy little bee!

Today was a gorgeous morning.   Over the past 5 days we have had several inches of rain and if we get more we may even drop to stage 1 water restrictions.  The rain also dropped the temperature to the high 70's yesterday.  Lovely

And now to make lunch.
