Small Book Share

Boy, where has the time gone. Got home and things have been crazy. I can't seem to get anything done. Have had a head cold and all I want to do is sleep, blow my nose and cough. Haven't been able to totally complete anything.

Went to the post office and picked up a week and a half of mail. Got one of my little books, so I'm going to share it, as it has an unusal cover. This was made by Barbara, it's a very cool idea and one I wouldn't have thought of. It's a jelly jar lid. The theme for this book was "Faces of Men". The background she did is sponged. The man is stamped on a small tile. It is held closed with ribbon.

The next 3 pictures are by 3 different artists. The first one is by Kathy and is a God of the Sky. The second is by Karla, it is of Santa with a overlay of a snowman. The third by Robin and of the King, Elvis, yes, I was a big fan.

The next 3 are very cool. The first is Abe Lincoln, the background is of pennies. This was done by Rebecca. The next has writing and a post mark. The gentleman is Thomas Edison and is made to look like a stamp, this was made by Mary. The last is an oriental gentleman embossed in white, it was made by Sandy.These are all great and I would like to thank the ladies that did the art work. What a great idea to use a jar lid as a holder.
I hope you all enjoy these and I hope they have given you some ideas. I hope to get a couple cards done today so I can start sharing again. Thanks for stopping and come back again soon.

  1. Hi Bobbi! What a fun book Barbara made out of the lids! Thanks for sharing it with us. Hey, do you ever read your comments? We were in the MWS background swap together and I mentioned that...
    Feel better soon so you can be creative again!
