Paper Life.....................

Just like you, I haven't had much time to sit and create but I always make time for my journal.  Half the fun is selecting images to fit the day and since I usually work on these in the morning that's a bit of a challenge.  (Like a mirror image, I just realized that I used the same stamp twice - oh, well..)  Do you journal?  I don't think I could not.  Lately I've been using the little notebooks you get at the $$$ store.  Sometimes I glue two pages together if I think they're going to be too heavy. They're my air.   Diane

New and Improved Partridge in a Pear Tree

I just couldn't talk myself into being happy with the first creation so this is a better one I came up with.  Much better, I think.  Good thing I wasn't working on a time clock on these.  Anyway.  I used part of the same base of the old one and remembered having some paper with pears on it (The French Flea Market - The Minds Eye).  Cut out my pear tree and reinforced it, then added my old Hungarian Partridge, and some tiny pine cones.  And we have it folks.                Diane

Partridge in a Pear Tree...............

This might be all I get done for a while in the Twelve Days of Christmas.  It's going to take me some time to collect little elements for them. They're all going to be around 3" x 3" so it's a bit of a challenge (especially when it's a tree).  We have Hungarian Partridges in our area and I thought it would be fun to use one of those in my pear tree.

It took me a while to post this one.  I waver between it just looks dumb to O.K. - it isn't dumb!  Diane

Playing along................

The Twelve Days of Christmas at Alpha Stamps sounds like fun.  As you know it's A Partridge in a Pear Tree so being a late starter I did two turtledoves today.  I'm still working on the partridge in a pear tree.  Three french hens will be a  great one to stir up my imagination.  It will be fun watching to see which designer will do the next ten.               Diane
