Live the Life You've Imagined

Happy Hump Day Blogland...It's going to be very hot today in Charm City. Did you all see the creations from the Dolls yesterday from the challenge this week? If you haven't it's a must see..so hop on over to The Burtonesque Doll's challenge blog as soon as you're finished here. You truly won't be disappointed. They have some extremely amazing and stunning creations this week. I would like to say I'm sorry for being missing in action lately. We have been going through a huge family crisis and I do believe we have finally gotten it resolved. More on this at a later time, but for now I would love to share with you a Maggie (ok well Edwin) card I made yesterday while my internet was wonky. I couldn't get on for the life of me. And when I was able to it would only let me click a few things and then back off it went. I think it took me about 3 hours to post my challenge card yesterday morning. Anywhoo, here he is. I'm thinking this might either go to hubby (as he sooo wants to move to a beach somewhere) or my Father-in-Law (which he lives at the beach now)....Enjoy!!!! this is just a view from the top......
here's the front view....there is so much going on with this...but I have to say I really love how this card turned out. Don't you just love it when a plan turns out the way you had envisioned? All coloring was done with re-inkers, I also added stickles, Tim Holtz film strip-snaps-metal flower-ball hitch--and the stamp on the shrink plastic...Edwin is from Magnolia and the background and posts are from Starving Artist....
Here's a closer view of the shrink plastic--film strip--metal flower and ball hitch all layered as one piece...I truly love this....lol......Well that's all I have for today....I hope everyone enjoys their happy hump day!!!!! Hugs from a very HOT Charm City

Nancy - love your card! so fun to look at...took me awhile to find the filmstrip (I just got some of that - such a cool little can it comes in! lol). I was just looking at the Starving Artistamps the other day and wondered if they'd be sized right for Magnolia stamps....very cool! thanks so much for inspiring!

Good Heavens, Nancy!! What a beautiful card you have created. I love to see people actually using the T!m "stuff" on their cards. Unlike me....who loves everything "T!m, but doesn't have a clue as to how to put everything together so it looks like it was supposed to be that way. It also took me a while to find the film strip on your card, but love how you have placed it. GREAT work.
