My daughters and I have started a small business of decorative concrete items for home and garden. We also sell coasters and terrariums. We have started doing craft festivals and are having a great time. Since both girls work full time and I am retired, at least for the summer, I am doing most of the pouring and staining of the pieces. I am very proud of what we do and wanted to share so you all could see what I have been doing. I will always love making cards-in fact I was able to make 8 today- but making these pieces gets me up and out early! Nothing has ever done that before.

I can't believe it has been so long since my last post!
Several years ago I found a great stamp store about 100 miles from me. It is a really pleasant drive over so it doesn't seem that far. She had Fred Mullett there in April and I was able to take a couple of his classes. He is such a delightful person and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Here are a couple of examples of cards I made using his techniques. I love all the different texture and masking techniques he uses.

This is a card I made with a Me and Carrie Lou stamp and watercolored using Tombows. This is my favorite way to color.

I have spent the last three weeks getting ahead on my swap cards so I can have some breathing room. Now I am working on building up my stash of cards for general use. Once again I am recycling old greeting cards people have given me. These images are so lovely I have just added a little something to make them mine. These three have sentiments from Scrap-a-licious Times . This is a really cool blog and all her sentiments are free.
