I received 3 wonderful pieces of art today.  first, from pollyprissypants, a hilarious card featuring my kissthisguy theme.  kissthisguy is a website for misheard lyrics and is full of funny stuff.  this tune is a Simon and Garfunkle song that should say, Michigan seems like a dream to me now, but somebody heard this...

I love the wee chicken showing off the funny lyrics.  thank you so much, polly!

next, two from jmiller614 on my Green Mountain State theme -

Killington vermont wanted to belong to new hampshire instead of vermont.  well, to each his own i guess...

AAAAkkkkk!  I cannot tell you how much i adore old sap buckets.  they still hang 'em around here.  this is real bark and tree bits you see on the card. I love love love it.  thank you very much, jmiller614.

I got mine from kimchery today!  they are all so awesum.
Here is a pic of the whole bunch -

and some close-ups

the fox is so beautiful. I love foxes!  I do not know how she did such a stunning bit of art on such a tiny piece.  the wing moves to reveal a heart and a letter...
and the wist one is gorgeous, too. I KNOW how tough it is to do tiny art,and this is so great.

the cute one is tiny scrollwork. so wonderful!  and the hidden secret has an adorable owl behind the door.

the crawfish is cute, and kimchery embroidered the luck sign. How??!!

can you see the classy cat image in the shiny one?  and she chose M for Meg.
kimchery,  you did a totally bang-up job on my inchies!  thank you so much

MunLtStmpr received awhile ago, so I am posting what I made for her. she wanted a local attraction so I put our Bennington Battle Monument in the 1800s to show it off...

Alchamy513 made this oh so handsome sheet music card for me.  She also put an M on it, as that is another theme of mine. It's the Mario tune!  I love it. It is going in my display book this afternoon.  thank you so much, Alchamy513.

omg, knocked up is sooo great!!

I got a terrific card today from jillybeans.  it is on my TV Dinners theme.  she did the most amazing job, in 3d.  check it out -

there is from left to right - corn and peas (beads), mashed potatos with a pat of butter (fibre fill) and chicken (hand cut papers). I have no idea how she constructed the tray. it is soooo perfect.  this is one of my favorite cards i have ever gotten.  thank you very very much, jillybeans.

i got three in the mail yesterday!
from WideEyedLife on my owls theme -

she has her own theme about heads being too big for the body, so she popped it into her owl card. he is so cute. owl heads DO seem to be a fairly significant part of their bodies!  I love the words - how she highlighted them with white

miknessevie made me two - the first for my M theme and she must have known how crazy i am about cats

this funny guy has his toungue out!
And for my dogs hanging out of cars theme -

this little one is definitely enjoying the ride.  i love it!

thank you, WideEyedLife and miknessevie.  they are great cards to add to my (huge now) collection!

527  new cast, new image in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by blupaisan on: June 25, 2011 07:58:41 AM

for those of you who saw my first cast, this is a radical swing the other way!  From 70s cutesy to 90s goth!  This was even more fun to decorate!!

I got four in the mail today!
kwality570 made me a birthday surprise -

I tried several times to get a clearer pic, but my hand does not wish to cooperate. kwality, if you have a better shot, please post!  i love his little hat. he is ready to party!!
she also sent me black and white -

I really like the 3d shape of this. it is always interesting to see how black and white themes emerge from artists.
and an extra, cuz she is so nice!!  titled  hellooooooo!

I luv it when she puts spots on her monsters.  thank you so much, kwality570.  they are all wonderful pieces of art.

next up, i got a "take on a graphic rainbow"  and Mountains and Clouds titled it Rainbow of Pixels

another fuzzy pic, and didnt even use a flash, but it shines an awful lot so you cant see the true colors. it is made from dozens of squares of polymer clay.  it must have taken ages to do this one. i love it!  especially with the fact that Mountains and clouds did not do just regular stripes of colors, she intermingled them in the true pixel way.  M&C, if you have a better pic (which I hope you do) could you post?  thank you for the gorgeous card.

i received from sarahj2001!  Above are pictured 2-sided (rainbows both), cute, upcycled, and wist. I had grapefruit earrings on my wist and this looks just like em. I adore foxes and sarahj2001 must have stalked me for the cute one!

yummy, soft, hidden secret, moving parts.
the yummy has real sprinkles on it! I looove the soft - she knitted the wee square!  fantastic colors, too. i guess I will never know the secret.... and the moving parts is cool - never woulda thought of that!  I have a tiny die collection where this inchi will go.

lastly, something local to the inchie maker, and scented. Banana is my favorite scent!  there was no way for her to know that unless she is psychic!!
thank you, sarahj2001. I think you did a great job!

I got a Motherload of ATCs in the mail all at once. It was just like Christmas!!
From our lovely host, redstar13, something obscure that happened in 1963

it is a hockey rink ATC, soooooo clever!  and she is a sports fan (how did she know I played ice hockey in school???) the card is done all over with finish so it looks just like ice. a very cool card.  thank you so much, redstar13!

from lolaandbean, igpay atinlay, and she made the star of the language, an iggypay!!  I will be using inkoay, inkoay as a catchall phrase from now on, it makes me chuckle so!  thank you, lolaandbean. i love it!

Mrs.LindsayLoo, a vegetarian menu. I sit here and read the choices and think, omg, I WANT that!  What a delicious card.  it is titled the fourth street deli. thank you, Mrs.LindsayLoo!

and finally, turquoise, from AmandaBL.  sorry that it did not come out very clear. my hand is still in a cast and does not always perform well, esp with a camera.

I just love all these colors together - it is extremely representative of me. there is a fascinating mesh material overlayed on top that does not show up in hte  pic, but gives the card an interesting texture. there are brads fastened in the 4 corners.  thank you, AmandaBL!

thank you to everyone who made my day. It was sooo much fun to open so many envies!  you are all just terrific craftsters.
