It's Been A While Cuz I Was Busy Climbing Stairs!

I have been busy.  I don't think I have been so proud of myself in years as I was last Saturday when I climbed 40 flights of stairs for the American Lung Association, in the Fight For Air Climb!!!  It took a while.  My daughter and her partner climbed with me and we did it on my schedule, finishing in 23 minutes.  To see me abject joy of having completed it, just click HERE.  That's my daughter behind me...It was definitely difficult but definitely worth it.  Anyone want to join me next year????

I have been creating just a little.  Below are 2 things I completed, both for my OSA Yahoo group.  The first is my March MOSAS swap.  I found the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and used a technique called the dryer sheet technique.  I simply stamped and colored an image and ran it through my Xyron (with the sticky side covering the image). I then placed a USED dryer sheet over the image and brayered it down to the sticky stuff. It gives a lovely muted touch to the stamped image.  I then added some Dazzling Diamonds very sparingly and brayered those down.  Unfortunately the image is a bit blurry.  I apologize but I tried over and over to work with it to no avail.  Here it is:

There was a card I wanted to send to another OSA member, so I used this week's card layout/sketch (#114):  It is very simple but I like how it turned out.  

I think I am all caught up now!!!  I appreciate all comments and thank you for them!!!


  1. Your projects are so creative! I think the DD is the cause of the blurr, but we know how beautiful it is! The link did not work, but congratulations and such a great cause. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Great projects! And thanks for commenting on my GC tutorial. I never would have thought of using rubber bands as stamps. I'll try that next.

  3. Willow, you completely rock! congrats on your stair climb. i'm sorry i could not view the photo but i know you looked great. beautiful creations! take good care.xo
