fish, flowers and an occasional ice cream sundae..

I spent most of the weekend at the Flame Tree Festival, but kiddo's were with pops this weekend so when I wasn't looking at art, I was trying to create it...key word "trying"



I thought this card came out cute, but I don't like the way I stamped the sentiment...it looks odd...but I will probably try it again..the big fish chasing the three little ones is too cute! I sure do...
I wanted to do something with ice cream so I could use my stickles...you can't see them in this picture but the ice creams really sparkly close up and the cherry I did with my sakura gel pen so its nice n shiny n puffy...
This was my first attempt at making a card with a different shape...I decided to try a fish bowl...I love the idea but I obviously need a lot more practice....I love this turtle too..I got him from the Internet and then drew him with my Sakura gel pens, then water colored him....He's Turtley cute!
I made this "love you" card for Tia, but then I made another one that I liked better so I sent the other one instead....

Oh Oh Oh, and aside from shopping, eating and people watching at the Flame Tree, I also met Deece for the first time..I saw Missy, but didn't get a chance to meet her (she was giving knitting lessons), and I met Jeff Turbit for the first time too..Sorry, Jeff, I was so exhausted I didn't even bother to introduce my fiance or anything...I just kinda sat there and smiled a stupid smile...Lol...And, on Saturday after Flame Tree I had lunch at 360 where I finally formally met Brad aka Brad in the sand aka Beach Boy Brad...Cool....I think I've met just about everyone that regularly blogs...aside from the very elusive Lil Hammerhead : )~

Thanks Tammy for the programme that you gave me.

When I was last in the states (last summer), I remember seeing hand-made cards at Borders-selling for around $5 or more apiece!

Next year, you need a booth at the Flame Tree Arts Festival!

And other commercial outlets!

Very cute.

Saipan Writer-Thanks for the comment! Ive only been creating cards for about a month, so maybe by next year I will be good enough to join the festival...we shall see...

Tamara.. I am everyone, and yet, I am noone. You've met me, everyone's met me. Whether it's was sitting next to one salty haired (and salty brained) blogger and his son at Wild Bill's, eyeing the video selections of a blogger at Hollywood Video, coincidentally walking past one bald blogger on the beachroad walkpath, brushing shoulder to shoulder with a blogger at the Flame Tree Fest, sitting next to another blogger at the now closed Hollywood Theater, or picnicking next to a particular female blogger and kids at Townhouse beach.. I am everywhere.. and yet, I am nowhere.
