More dolly food...

Oh what fun it is to make miniature food! I took a tiny break from cards to create to fulfill a custom order. Love it. How about a peanut butter and jelly sandwich...or a cheese sandwich?

How about a cheeseburger and fries?

Chicken nuggets anybody?

Hog dog? Carrots and celery? How about a dill pickle?

Mmmm...mouth watering watermelon, or an orange wedge or a peach?

How about breakfast? Sunnyside up egg, pancake, bacon, and toast with butter?
Now on to dessert. Delicious cookies? about twinkies, a s'more, and an ice cream sandwich?

A little mince pie maybe? Or how about some popsicles??

Playing around

I got some beautiful paper at a garage sale and couldn't wait to play with it. Oh, I LOVE it! I also used some $1 stamps.

Then I also got the Thanks a Latte from a MFT little stamp set that was at the garage sale. I know, I scored!!! The mug is from a $1 set. The paper on the "thanks" card is some that I won as blog candy. It is gorgeous! I'll post all my winnings one of these days...I'm still waiting on one that I won in February. Kind of sad it hasn't arrived yet.

We're off for a tournament in Eastern Oregon...hoping for good weather. We're looking forward to a motel...a pool...and some baseball and wondering how I can hide some scrapping supplies to take with us!!

And another one!

I just love this raccoon image...he's colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. The paper is mostly from DCWV that I've had for quite some time. The tag is done with the worked so nicely!!! The letters were done once again with my handy dandy homemade stamper liner upper. I'm impressed with how well it works!

Finally...a new card...

I just HAD to try stamping on misted paper. I was thrilled with the result...just love it. I use purple onion stamps that I adore. And the letters were done with a $1 set from Craft Warehouse. I used my little home made stamp liner upper (don't you love advanced terms like that?) It worked like a charm.
