Smiley from Good Tuesday morning!  Yesterday I had an email from my buddies over at, Stan and Russell, that they had uploaded some new images.  I’ve been waiting for the colored Alice in Wonderland images because I’ve had an idea running through my mind for a few weeks now, which they did get uploaded.  However, they also uploaded a bunch of new Easter images!  I couldn’t resist downloading one with little yellow Smiley from millan.netSmiley from to work with.

I think that when I was a little girl I received a live chick for Easter one year.  I really don’t remember it, but my mother told me I did.  What I do remember is going to visit relatives with my grandparents one time, and my grandmother pointing out a goose that was my Easter chick.  I only remember seeing it one time, but that memory lingers with me . . . . it was a darn big goose!

Anyhoo, here’s my first chick card . . . I’m sure there’s going to be a few more because I absolutely love the new images!


I teamed the image up with The Stamp Simply Lilac Avenue Kit, sponging the edges of all the paper before sewing the background layers to the base.  I added just the image, but the design looked so bare to me that I made a frame from the glittery sheet that matched the background.  If you look closely, you can see the glitter on the frame.

Well, I have another doctor’s appointment today and then I’m going to visit with my uncle, maybe a class tomorrow, and then my baby . . . Kate is getting married on Friday!  Did I tell you?  I know I posted on Facebook when I found out but I probably haven’t said anything here.  They are going to the courthouse since they just bought a house  . . . saving money bless their hearts . . . smart kids too . . .

Anyhoo, thanks for stopping by today and remember  . . . enjoy the adventures that come your way today, because life is short!Smiley from


I know it’s a little late in the day for coffee, but I’m still enjoying the second pot of the day trying to fight a headache and lack of sleep.  So either grab a cup of coffee or whatever you drink (baileys?) and join me  . . . Smiley from

The other day I showed you another example of using Spellbinders™ Labels Eleven and a floral image from  I mentioned then that the image would probably become a card and I finished it this morning.

When I was searching for a name to call this technique nothing came to mind right away, so I settled on 3D Images.  Since I made the first post with this technique, I’ve heard from some of you and also read, that this is also called a pyramid card . . . well hell that certainly makes sense . . .  Smiley from  I will blame my lack of imagination on drugs.  If you watch the video tutorial closely, you might find glazed over eyes!  Yes, I’m sure you will.

Well anyway, here’s my finished project.

I also thought it would be fun to post a close-up of all the layers.  I’ve seen some of you making the pyramid without foam tape between the layers and I like the look of them too.  I just can’t resist using the foam tape to add more dimension.

The outside edge of all the Spellbinders™ Labels Eleven and the embossed areas of the Classic Lace Border are sponged with Antique Linen.  The paper (Graphic 45) was sewn to a cardstock layer, then those edges plus the stitching were sponged in the same in.   A big silk bow ties it all together . . . gotta love this silk ribbon Smiley from

Thanks everyone for sending me links to your pyramid/3D cards which you upload them.  I love seeing what you’ve done . . . keep the links coming.


Thanks for stopping by today  . . . . remember – life is short, enjoy the adventures the day brings you!

This afternoon I moved the laptop back into the studio and picked up all my mess from the Spellbinders™ Surprise Party.  When I had a clean and organized work area once again, I felt like being a little creative.  Actually, I wanted to make one more 3D image using the Spellbinders™ S4-246 Labels Eleven.  Now I haven’t put the 3D image on a project yet, but I do want to share what I’ve got.


Now here’s what I was really going for!  The negative version of the above image.


I can’t decide about this negative 3D image.  It will be very difficult and rather awkward to put on a card.  I’m thinking that using this part of the project in some type of frame is what will happen.  I do think it’s cool looking though.  Sorry that’s is blurry  . . . I just noticed it!  Darn it all.

Once again I’ve used a downloadable image from  If you love vintage images this is the site for you.  There are so many to choose from and I’ve yet not to find what I’m looking for!

I’ll be working on adding these images to a project over the next little bit.  I can’t wait to see what I come up with.  In the meantime, I hope you find your adventure in today and remember life is short . . . make the most of your day!
