I'll be sharing some of my week 2 index cards ( I have joined in on the Daisy Yellow Index Card a Day Challenge which runs June 1- July 31) along with one I just posted on Instagram earlier today to use for two other challenges as well. My blog banner is from week two as is this one. The quote is a Dina Wakley stamp, the flower silhouettes are a stencil from Magenta,and the sparkly flower stickers are a Dollar Store find:)
But before I share some others let's go and visit T Stands For Tuesday with a beverage related photo shall we? I'm sharing two more photos from Cape May a few weeks ago.
We went to a restaurant/hotel/bar near our motel for a late afternoon meal before heading to our special jazz concert . This was the first time we ate or visited here and liked it very much! Hemingways Restaurant had a nice selection of food, specialty beers and wines along with all the other mixed drinks. It was a Sunday afternoon and pretty empty so we chose to stay at the bar. For my meal I chose a veggie burger and it was one of the best tasting I've had. It had the flavors of cumin and chili (very mild though). Hubby had an Angus beef burger which he claimed as excellent and done to his liking - well done. We will definitely go here again on our next visit to Cape May. The prices were very reasonable as it was happy hour!
This is a photo of Lois Smith and her niece. Lois is a well known jazz and gospel vocalist who attended the jazz concert and after party. Here she talked with the pianist and then completely charmed us all with a few gospel songs. And can she SING! She had me and several others in tears when she sang Amazing Grace. It was a beautiful way to end the night. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find a link to Lois and her career.
I made this index card especially for the new Simon Monday Challenge (stars and stripes), along with a Gelli Arts Giveaway and challenge (red, white and blue) on Instagram. I have no idea how to link or add photos to/from blogs to/from Instagram so often I will post a pic on Instagram and tag it but I need to use my blog to post an actual link or photo to a challenge blog.
In keeping with using up my deli paper Gelli Plate printed papers on this month's cards I have used one for this as well. The stencil (blue) is Tim Holtz Honeycomb. The Small Talk Occasions Stickers are also Tim Holtz. Star is a die cut. Vintage image from my stash. Black gel pen, blue Posca pen, and a bit of sewing to finish this card.
Here are my other index cards from week 2. I am current on IG but behind in posting them here on the blog. Much easier to post daily on IG:)
Unfortunately you can't see the glittery sparkle on the feather:(
And finally, a journal page for Art Journal Journey (theme is "words to live by"):
I began the background with Tim Holtz Symphony tissue collage paper then grunged it up with some blue and grey inks. The black/butterfly postcard is from my stash. That pretty collaged square in the center of it was a part of a decorated envelope my dear friend Patty S sent me. Quote chip is Tim Holtz.
I'll also link to Paint Party Friday of course! If you have any questions regarding supplies etc. on the index cards just ask. My post would be way too long if I wrote a descriptive on each one!
Thanks as always for your visits!
