Making more collages

Standard

I’m amazingly only a few cards behind. Not bad for a project I started back at the end of August, 2010. I think I’m up to #128 now. I had to stop and make an Artist Trading Card for a New Year/Father Time challenge and was having a little trouble with that, but think I know how I’ll finish it.
The kitty was from my old 2010 calendar. Along the bottom of each month were kitties the perfect size for these 4″ x 4″ collages. The daisies are new and I used some ‘handmade paper’ along the bottom.
The next one for the 1st was a bit of a challenge because I was wondering what to do with the leaf paper. I had the little metal frame kicking around forever and then the little girl in her furry coat seemed to fit well:
Cherish 4" x 4" Collage Card
The next one is my mom in the early 1950s all dolled up for church or a wedding.

I think about her as an 80 yr old who is having a rough time right now (you know who if you read my blog). I wish she wouldn’t listen to this person.

~~~Wish Sean luck as he has an interview at an environmental job that is related to his field-finally! He spoke to the president in early December and the phone call went well, though Sean is talking with someone else tomorrow. We saw that the president took the same exact majors that Sean took!~~~

I was looking at auto*traders.com and found a few cars I’m interested in-white and blue. We’ll get the ball rolling soon.

  1. Guess what came in the mail today…yup, the darling little Kitchen Fairy:-) Thank you SO MUCH, dear Dianne, I just love her to bits!! She’s just so sweet dancing with the gingerbread man. I really appreciate you thinking of me:-)

    Love all of your collages, especially the one of your mom. It’s such a shame that she’s having such a tough time right now, she’s at an age where she should be stress free and just enjoying life.

    Fingers crossed for Sean!! xoxo

  2. Your Mom is such a fashionable woman. I think the 1950’s were probably the best years to be a young woman. I should have been born a bit earlier!

    Good luck Sean on the job — it is so tough today for young people to get a good job. I hope this is the one!
