I'm working on a couple right now...Painting and fabrics, mostly. I'll post pics on this thread when I'm done, if anyone wants to see.

Aw, thanks, Katxena. I posted some.

On another topic, I have another stupid question: How do you get your cards to lay flat after you paint/collage/glue them? Mine don't want to lay flat AT ALL. Advice?

I do one of two things: I glue it to a fresh piece of cardstock or I put it under a bunch on books.  If I do the latter, I usually wrap it in wax paper just to make sure it doesn't stick.

Edited to add:  I really like the first sun on water card.  All the different blues are so pretty.

When you say cardstock, does that mean no cardboard? I came across some really neat cardboard in a giftbox my daughter received. It's blue with bubble shapes. Is cardboard allowed, or cardstock only? I don't think anyone said one way or the other. Just wanted to know. Thanks again!

Anything you want to use is fair game.  Cardboard is fine.  I used a box that a cheesecake factory cake came in once -- it was pretty!  What I should have said was I glue on an additional piece  of backing, whether it's cardstock, cardboard, metal from a beer can or fabric interfacing.  Ok, I've never done that beer can thing, but I really want to.

LOL That beer can part sounds interesting...I'd cut my hand off, tho! I can't wait to use this cardboard now! 

*hugs for Katxena!*
