It's a Sundae...

With a cherry on top!

I had a lot of work to do, but I got a couple surprises along the way that made it all really super fun. Fire up your ADD - there are a lot of topics in this post!!

First - the most exciting news.. One of my FAVORITE blogs - ModernCat - featured me today!
Well, actually, they featured Sassy Maddie!!This is such an honor for me, because Kate, who runs this site, is not just a sweet, warm hearted ailurophile, but she finds the most AMAZING designs. It's my favorite eye candy every day in my tromp through Google Reader. Please check out her site. Thanks Kate - you are a doll.

Next, to cheer myself up on a so-not-lazy Sunday, I wore this fabby bracelet from one of my beloved Twitter pals - Bunny (@holyxuxa) who makes the most GORGEOUS jewelry.

Here's my horribly freckly arm with her lovely glowy bracelet on it. You can find her site here.Then, I found out that Splotchy knows how to work the window locks. Can stealing my car be far behind??

Aww - but look how cute he is.
Then, finally, a card or two before tonight's work starts.

This gorgeous bird set is a hostess set from the upcoming catalog - it's called Wings of friendship. I thought of it today because summer can be a bummer when your friends sprout wings and take off on vacation.

But come back, they do :).
I stamped the bird in Ballet blue on some old sheet music.

I shaded around it with a pencil and outlined it with my Micron.

The sheet music makes it technically a Reanimation.

Enjoy the dwindling weekend hours... Why do they go so fast?


Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :)

Want to see my other blog?


  1. At first I thought you stamped the Ballet Blue on a transparency- it's a really cool effect the way the blue pops out off the sheet music! I mean REALLY cool- like so cool that I am not hot any more- like so cool that I'm chillin'- like so cool that........

    Kydia- where do you get the sheet music? Is it a DSP from a company or honest to God, real sheet music? I want some, you enabler, you! I want some of that crossword paper too! I want, I want, I want but probably don't need- ha!

    WV-beammi- "Beammi up Scottie!"

  2. I LOVE the music birdie! I have to CASE this. Years ago I picked up a whole box of music at a rummage. This is a perfect use for it.

  3. I nominated you on my blog for an award, hmmm, should have done it on caturday so it would have been more to celebrate. but check it out. also how can i email you a hilarious pic of my cat jellybean i think you'd like? he is attacking my daughter for his cat hashish

  4. congrats on being featured and that is a fabulous card! I so wanted that birdie too, but we could only choose one...

  5. Love the card. I thought you had pop-dotted it, but it was the wonderful shading that gave it that 3D look. TFS

  6. Lydia,

    The card is too pretty! I love the bluebird on the music sheet, what a great idea.

    Splotchy is too cute too! The problem is that kitties are just too smart. The little stinkers understand everything we say. Oh, I know you are too used to calling Splotchy a "he", but really she is a "She". Poor gender confused Splotchy.

    Lisa Page, Girlfriend, you are hysterical, keep the Kydia comments coming.
