Look what I won from Beth

I entered a drawing on the blog, Gathering Dust..... Beth drew my name for the Box of Fun! you can see it was loaded with lots of stuff and as promised I also got "Narrow Butts" this is not all of it, there are lots more but these were the best pics and they aren't in order, not sure what happened with that.....but the pic with the wrapping is tissue paper from sewing patterns, wasn't that so cool, I like using the pattern tissure paper in my art cards and such.....not sure what I will do with my new stash but after vacation(leaving Friday for NC)......maybe I will have time to play some...
Thanks so much Beth......

PID Challenge card

In the Paper Imagery Designs group,
we had a challenge to do art using a PID image and anything else we wanted too but there had to be Dots somewhere on the card.....
Background is scrapbook paper, rolled through a embossing thingy to get texture, rubbed with some ink, the boy image is from PID images, the mushroom and the word banner is from Lisa's Altered Arts,
the tree stamp is from Rubber Stampede.... and the bird is a Hallmark sticker!

ATC Jackpot

This is my ATC for the Paper Imagery Designs
Its a new yahoo art group and they have a web site where they sell their is a FUN group......They are having a ATC Jackpot where members post their atc using a PID image and someone will win all of the art that is entered....its like a Lottery on some groups...
I used cardstock, painted with Luminere paint, I love the shimmer of this paint, then I rolled it through one of those hand held embossing things(I found it at the Dollar Tree)..I like the testure it gives, then I chose 2 cat eye ink pads and rubbed over the raised parts with effects, I added the door and Tommy from PID, and typed the worddes and printed them up, colored with an ink pad a bit, then I use a photo holder from Debbie at :
colored it up and added fibers and attached it with a brad....
I then used a chalk ink pad to outline the card and make it look like a door..
