Letting Off Steam

Please don't get me wrong... I'm not prone to temper tantrums. BUT occasionally I feel the need to let off a little steam. (Am I the only one?)

Perhaps that is why I always liked this little song that we often sang when I was a child:

I'm a little teapot, short and stout;

Here is my handle, here is my spout.

When I get all steamed up, hear me shout,

"Tip me over and pour me out."

In keeping with this dark side of my personality, I decided to create this card for Paola's What Song Are You? card swap on Splitcoast Stampers.

It really was a lot of fun to create. I used found items (paint chips) and a creative technique (heated pearls).

Now, go ahead and post a comment... you know you want to! And if you don't want to, do it anyway... before I get steamed. (Just kidding!)

All Punked Up...

I have met - well, chatted with online - some of the neatest people on splitcoaststampers. DJ is one of them. She is my cheerleader, my mentor, my friend!

I'm currently in her I Got the Music in Me card swap. This morning, I woke up very early, after only three hours of sleep... and I decided to make another card for her swap because I had a stamp I was eager to use and it fit the theme. After creating for a while, I woke up enough to realize I hadn't asked for a second spot... so I went to SCS to see if she'd let me have another spot. That's when I saw it - her swap was officially CLOSED!


But, Dj, being the kind, sweet, caring, incredible person that she is (or greedy, after all she'll get one of these cards, too - Just Kidding, DJ!!!!), said I could have the second spot. Whew! Crisis averted. Ha!

Here's the card I created, using the Bella tiddly inks stamp that is called allpunkedupandnowheretogo.

She's fun! Just like my friend DJ!!!

Here's the card I made for a young lady's birthday. I hope she likes Rockstar Anya!

Rock On!

I made this card for DJ's I Got the Music in Me swap.

I'm sorry, but the picture is too dark to really see the stitching. That's a hand-stitched guitar on the righthand side of the card.

The stamp is such fun. It's Rockstar Anya by The Greeting Farm.

I made another card with the same stamp, for a young lady who is celebrating her 13th Birthday. I'll post it, too, in a little while... so check back in a bit to see it.
