To warm for Cocoa

The weather here has been so beautiful I've just been hangin out on my new sun room reading James Patterson books. I think I've read about 25 in the past two months. I get into spurts where I read all the time then I finish a book and I'm done reading for a few weeks or even months. I have been busy with my grandson Ryan as he's making a 8 inch scrapbook for his girlfriends birthday, so I gather everything for the page and he puts it all together so he really can say he made it. It's so fun to have the grandkids over here even if they are 22 and 20. I missed so much of their childhood sometimes its hard to connect but when we do its so much fun.
I made the card above last Monday while cleaning up the Studio, heck all I did was stack stuff on the floor to clear a place for Ry to sit but it made me want to make a card since I have about 100 colored images and probably 500 uncolored images just waiting to be used. I used K & Company brown paper, sponged on the cup ran a piece of cardstock thru the (do you ever have one of those moments where your mind goes blank as to what you used?) Brayer to ripple the heat protector and added some cute ribbon I've had for at least 5 years. Anyway I'll be down in the studio working for the next few days making more pages for Ry to work on when his next day off comes around.
Take care and have a great week hopefully I'll remember to check in again real soon with pictures of the album. Hugs, Jeanine

Pretty Springtime

Yep one day you think spring is here and the next you think it's winter. This is super simple card I used scraps of paper to form the background paper then used my Hot Shot to make scallop mats for my image. I've had this image forever and although I try to label my images to give credit to the artist sometimes old and stupid combine and I forget.
Image number two is all colored in Copics like the first but I used some punches and premade swirl pearls. Very simple no real card pattern just using up some of the hundreds of images I have.
Have a great weekend and remember to smile, it really makes em wonder what your up too! Hugs, Jeanine

Feline Groovy

Yep I'm feelin groovy, better than I have in a while. I went down into the dungeon this morning and whipped up a few cards to entertain you. It just amazes me how if I sit down with a image in hand how quickly I can put a card together. My 'Feline Groovy' card is made with SU scraps and a few Copic colors, SU pearls and a little circle to pop the card. I did make a couple other cards but blogger isn't cooperating with me today so hopefully things will be better in the morning.
Thanks for stoppin by, hugs, Jeanine
