Projects from Florida Trip

Hello Friends,
Today I have photos from the Florida Trip. Chris and I had a blast hanging out with her Mom, Elaine and all the women in her stamping group. Here they all are.
Left to right: Gyda, Judie, Elaine, Chris, Katie, and Bonnie. (I am taking the picture, of course.) This bunch of girls really knows how to have fun! And, they welcomed me right into the group. What a fabulous group of ladies. I will share the projects we made. The first is a piece of wall art measuring 8" x 10" made on a canvas board. Elaine and Bonnie collaborated on this project. This piece was made with- and you won't believe it- duct tape!
Fab, right?!!! Yes, it is duct tape. The shinny kind. And, we used alcohol inks to add all that color. We all got together at Bonnie's house and made this project on Saturday. On Sunday, we all got together at Katie's house for lunch, a birthday celebration (Elaine's), and some yummy carrot cake courtesy of Bonnie. At Katie's we made two beautiful cards.

And, here is a close up of the accent:

Katie made all the sarcophagi from clay. So cool!!

Chris and I did manage to get to the pool each day - in between crafting of course. I also would like to add a big THANK YOU to Elaine and Dan for inviting me into their home and making me feel so welcome. You are a couple of sweeties!!

Well, the yard work is waiting. I have to get out and do all the Spring clean up stuff. I guess I had better get to work. Hope everyone is having a great day.

  1. Great job with the blog Karen!! The projects look almost as good as in person! We did have an awesome time visiting my mom (and Dan) and her girlfriends (aka: stamping buddies) in Florida. Karen is a riot to hang out with and we had SO much fun that I went through withdrawl when we came home and I didn't see her for a couple of days! (Good thing we live across the street from each other!) Anyway, thanks for being such a great stamping buddy and friend. It really makes life rich. And a Big SHOUT OUT to my mom and her girlfriends in Florida...Thanks for your hospitality and Love!!


Thanks for stopping by! I enjoy hearing from other crafty artists -- please leave a comment.
