Above is the card I got from jillybeans for my theme something obscure that happened in 1963.  I am getting just wonderful cards for this theme!  So, Tab was introduced in that year (I did not realize it was so early) and jillybeans did such a great card for it!  I used to drink this in the 70s when I began my diet failures...  she created such a great looking can with intricately cut out letters - I am sure i would not be able to pull that off.
Then to celebrate my birthday (the 16th) she made me some gorgeous extras in little envelopes like this -

inside each was a terrific piece of artwork and here they are -





which opens to be...


wow, did she get my tastes down perfectly!  I adore foxes ( I am in the fox swap right now), my fave color is turquoise, and the chicken is adorable (i used to have chickens and trained on named Chuck.)
You are so generous and thoughtful, jillybeans. Thank you for making my day a very special one with your wonderful talents!!!!

ps at posting time, the pics are skewed oddly... I certainly hope Craftster fixes them in a matter of minutes...

My newest piece of "clothing" is my  hand cast. They gave me a blank slate to work with, so I kept it simple with daisies. I love retro colors like these - brings me back to the 70s when I was a young whippersnapper! The hand is sore, but getting better...

How many licks does it take??!!

Here is my wonderful Owl card from Mrs.LindsayLoo. I love it!  So colorful and cute. i am in awe of when craftsters cut out art to put it on a different background and that was done here, so skillfully.
thank you, Mrs.LindsayLoo!

I received a wonderful mustache card from Mrs.LindsayLoo on my embroidery theme.  This is the second embroidery she has done for me, as we thought the first was lost in the mail but it turned up. I love this!  I love how someones mustache can have colors in it.  thank you, Mrs.LindsayLoo!

I asked for child's art and WideEyedLife delivered!  she tutors kids and one drew this... then WideEyedLife turned it into a cover for this...  be sure to read the texts as they come.

I laughed and laughed at this one (so did my daughter.)
WideEyedLife also sent me get-well extras that also made me feel great.

the title for that one is waves.
the wee penguin is so cute!

this one is called decompressing and is so very pretty. I have dreams like this...
thank you, WideEyedLife very very much!!
