MY BABIES ARE HOME

When I send my art work off for submissions, it's scary, exciting, but most of all, it's wonderful to see it arrive home, especially after it has been published.

Here is my first baby, back home from The Stamper's Sampler. I loved making this card (see Hopeless Romantic post) and you might get an insight to my mind. My friend Lisa bought the chandelier stamp also, and some of the papers. Dare I say, she's got the disease also.

Both my MOO card submissions returned home last week. This one I love. What hopeless romantic wouldn't love the beach. Ok, my dear friend, Cracker, (Laurie) would prefer the mountain views, and that fits her perfectly.


And here is the final return, also published in The Stamper's Sampler. Great magazine by the way. If you buy a copy, I promise you will not put it down for hours! This card, Dream For You, is again, another romantic theme but I added some "green" in it. That flower is the bottom of a plastic water bottle, that I cut lines downward, and then melted them, added some inks and nail polish and adhered a button on it. Voila, scrapping and recycling go hand in hand.

So these babies are home. I have several more submissions out there, and it's just a waiting game. But the good thing about waiting, I keep myself busy with creating more and more and more...I love the arts!
Peace to all,
Elaine

I love them all.. you know which is my favorite... but they are all great! The Fun in the Sun... a different style than what I am used to seeing from you, and what a fabulous job you did with it. Had to do a double take on the "waves"! How clever you are! Your Dream card... how amazing.. and what another clever idea! Now I have an excuse to drink all those cokes... oh wait you said water bottle! Well, coke bottles would work too! Right?
Great job.... as always!

I can't remember if I've commented on this post or not but I've just gotta say these are all dumbfoundingly amazing! Love the {} waves, the water bottle flower....right down to the funky button center and the chandelier card is just gorgeous.
