While Paul and I were on our cruise we attended an art auction. We bid on and won two signed paintings by Linda Le Kniff. These two pictures are not the ones we won, but I like these also. I'll post pictures of our artwork when we receive it. I absolutely love her work.
Here is an ATC (Artist Trading Card) Jam that I participated in. The 1st person (Gayle) put together the yellow and blue background, the second person (Jen) added the pink and orange birds, and the third person (me) added the clouds and flower. This was a really fun swap! There are 3 total, so we each end up with one in the end.
As I am sure you can tell, I am a cat person. I have quite a few friends that like dogs. I have MANY cats stamps and a few dog stamps. I made a couple of cards for my friends who like dogs and this is what I came up with! I thought that the embossed dots would go great with this dog who has a spot around his eye.
I am really happy with how this best wishes card turned out. I have a lot of ribbon and I am trying to incorporate ribbons and fibers when I can.

Our freedom known as summer is officially over tomorrow. Tomorrow is our first day back at work after summer vacation. Even though I am sad that summer is over, we have had a very enjoyable summer. We have done quite a bit of traveling, we went to San Diego and Arizona, we also took a Mexican Riviera cruise. Here are some pictures from our travels.
I absolutely LOVE Pink Cat Studio! I have many of their stamps and I find myself using them very often. I have a couple of cards displayed in the Pink Cat Gallery and I just submitted these two cards to be added to their gallery. The next set I plan to get is their Limitless Limbs stamp set, it is very versatile.
