Go For The Gold~Thanks

Hello and Happy Monday!!
Today I have a card I made for Power Poppy's Power and Spark Challenge for March which is to Go for The Gold.
I used Dynamic Duos: Glads & Gerberas to create this card.  I used gold as a subtle accent with some fine gold thread and and gold frame around the flowers.  Unfortunately gold it hard to photograph and it doesn't show that well in my photo.  The paper is My Minds Eye, Happy Day.  The yellow dots are some that I made using pearlier beads and they are strategically placed to cover up three ink smudges, shhh it is our little secret.

Thank you for stopping by,

Wendy's Birthday Blog Hop!

Good Morning!

When Wendy Wyman was just 4 years old, she announced that she was going to be an artist when she grew up.  Many years, and many sketchbooks later, she had earned a BFA in Graphic Design. 

For the next 11 years found Wendy worked in advertising, freelancing, and ran a printing company. 

And then it happened...Wendy's mom became a stamping addict, and the rest was history!  It was Wendy's mom's encouragement that led her to turn her illustrations into fine art rubber stamps.

Wendy's husband, Bill, was also looking for a career change, and jumped at the idea of learning a new skill.  

And 1996, Wendy Wyman, and her husband Bill Welsh established Repeat Impressions Stamps.  Each stamp is designed by Wendy, and manufactured by Bill in their home workshop!

Today, the design team for Repeat Impressions, the Rock Stars, have joined together
with a special hop for Wendy's Birthday!

We all created ATC's for Wendy. They were mailed to Cheri, one of our Rock Stars, who has created a wonderful album for them, and sent them on to Wendy.

Wendy, you are one of the sweetest, and most generous people we know.
As a 'boss', rarely do we find ourselves on a team that is more professionally run,
or more organized!  You are so understanding of our personal issues, and it's a joy to work with you and your products!

We want to wish you a very Happy Birthday!
We look up to, admire and respect you.
May your day today be filled with love and laughter!

And remember....the more candles you have, the bigger the wish you are allowed!

Here are my ATC's for Wendy:
Please hop along to see what uber-fabulous projects my fellow Rock Stars have created
for Wendy!

Thanks for hopping with us!  If you have a minute, please go to the RI blog, The House that Stamps Built, and leave Wendy a bit of Birthday love!!!

I would like to wish Wendy the Happiest Birthday!! Also I would like to thank Cheri and my former Rock Star teammates for including me in Wendy's birthday gift and hop.

29 Again?

Hello, it has been a few weeks since my last post.  All I can say is that I have had a complete lack of any creativity at all.  As a result I couldn't motovate myself to make anything or even pop in for a quick post.  I am happy to say that I think the gray skies are clearing as far as my mojo is concerned.  On to my post.
I created this card for Art Impressions latest challenge Vintage Vibe.  I admit this is out of my normal card style and found this to be a true challenge.  In fact my first attempt is in the bottom of my trash can.  So vintage not being my style left me with very little items to work with.  So I improvised and used 29 Again? Set from Art Impressions and went with it.
Thank you for stopping by.
