Sand Flat Shadows...

For those of you who don't know where the name of my blog comes from, you should read a beautiful little story called Sand Flat Shadows.

Or, you could just look at this beautiful picture (courtesy of this site) and understand...

Or this one...
Aaah that makes my brain happy.

My card today is super simple.. I CASE'd a really beautiful card which you can see here.

It was a fun card to do with my monthly class peeps! Just stamp the image full strength once and then stamp twice more without reinking to get the paler flowers. Very fun.

What are you guys up to this weekend? Something crafty? I'm making a movie for the 48 hour film festival with my bro & sis. We have 48 hours after we get our genre assignment to write, film, and edit the movie and turn it in. It's always an adventure! Here's the last movie my brother did for this festival, with my dad in the leading role :)

If you don't see a video player, click here to watch the movie...


  1. Oh, yay! I can read your story! And yes, those images are amazing!

    Sounds like a new-fangled drink that's a cross between a martini and a ... colt 45 beer? Blech.

  2. Beautiful card...just lovely.

    Oh, and your daddy scared me in the movie! He played his part well enough that I know who I will call first if someone steals my credit card info.

  3. Oh my goodness!! Genius!! No wonder you are so crafty - it sure runs in the family :)


  4. So clever! So well done, too -- kudos to your brother AND your dad!

  5. Darn! I already have a Cuttlebug, so I can't take that off your hands but I need a new Portaink caddy. Too bad I'm in Ohio. Sigh. Pretty card though!

  6. Did you post the Bug sale on SCS? I'll bet it would go fast. It's a great deal. I already have a Bug and a Big Shot.

  7. Have fun working on your 48 hour film project. My son has participated (and won several times) in that contest here in the Cincy area. I don't know how people come up with such fantastic films and get them submitted in such a short period of time-kudos to your family for such a great idea and awesome film!

  8. Lydia,

    Hello Chica, sorry I have been missing from your comments lately. Busy busy lady. economy picking up a little and I have been soooooo busy job hunting. Cross your fingers for me!

    Anyhoo, I so love this card, it is absolutely gorgeous!!!!

    I already have a bug, which I use almost everytime I craft, hope you have some luck finding a taker for it.

    Hugs, Lisa

  9. I'll spread the word about the Cuttlebug.....cute's good to go back to CAS film... Your dad is a natural!

  10. I LOVE this video - really, really love it! I'm going to email this to my DH at work - he'll get a real kick out of it.
