2015 Calendars...

I would like to introduce you to my new 2015 calendars featuring my photography. I had some computer problems and so I am a little later getting them done than I would have liked. 

The themes this year are Flowers, Zoo Animals and Canada Geese... all images are ones that have not been used in previous calendars.

I would like to thank those who have been supporting me over the last few years. Photography gives me so much pleasure and I can't wait till the winter and spring when I have the most fun.

I have put these in my new photography only shop on Etsy, I decided to finally separate my photography from my art and mini albums.

A few photos I took recently...

On Saturday when I went to work, I found this little bat... probably a baby, he was only 2 inches in diameter... so adorable. Wish I had my big camera... he was right outside our employee door.

Then yesterday my co-worker was picking me up and she rang my door bell, and whispered shhhhh & get your camera... lol This guy was lounging right on my front lawn... how cool!

And I saw these geese today... 

And this was last night's moon... it was beautiful! The full moon is not until tomorrow.

Pet Brag Book...

A friends birthday is next week and so I had some fun last night making this little pet brag book. She has 1 dog and 2 cats.

To make this book I used free scrapbook elements from Salt Town Studio - I used the Must Love Dogs and Must Love Cats Journal Cards - they come in large sizes and you can resize them, and they also come in square so that is what I used as background paper, and I used the Must Love Dogs and Must Love Cats Word Art. I also added some charms to the spine of the book, and some binder clips that she can use. And cut a few tags out.

Anything Goes challenge...

I love to watch art videos and lately I am hooked on watching very talented artists making greeting cards with a variety of techniques. When I saw that Simon Says Stamp was holding an "Anything Goes" challenge I thought I would give it a try... you can find the challenge here.

Now I have very little card making supplies, so took me a few hours to decide what would work. lol I used my only 3 colors of distress ink that I own (must get more one day soon... love it), and 1 of only 2 stamp sets I own. I need to start picking up more supplies soon... I had fun making this!

This card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, and was created on Strathmore Mixed Media Velum Surface 140 lb paper. I used Tim Holtz distress ink pads in 3 colors: Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint and Tea Dye. I used my square paper punch, and a butterfly stamp from a set I got at Wal-Mart, unfortunately I don't know the name, I didn't keep the packaging. I also used my Martha Stewart score board to make the outer card as I didn't have any on hand.

The colors in the top image are the closest to the actual card.
