Frog populations have been declining worldwide at unprecedented rates, and nearly one-third of the world’s amphibian species are threatened with extinction. Up to 200 species have completely disappeared since 1980, and this is NOT normal: amphibians naturally go extinct at a rate of only about one species every 250 years!!! Frog populations are faced with an onslaught of environmental problems, including pollution, infectious diseases, habitat loss, invasive species, climate change, and over-harvesting for the pet and food trades. Unless these problems are remedied, amphibian species will continue to disappear, resulting in irreversible consequences to the planet’s ecosystems and to humans.

The way it i s...

Good morning all.... coffee in hand, breezes blowing through the windows ALL NIGHT LONG (makes very LOUD windchimes, tho) and cats pouncing on me already... all in all a good day. So, this card is a piece of plain blue CS that I ran thru the Sizzix for texture, then some ribbon on top & bottom, a sentiment stamp & a die cut butterfly that I cut out of another textured piece of CS.

Today I finish catching up at work... nothing like taking a week long fun-filled vacation on the beach in Mississippi.. it was a truly awesome & amazingly refreshing trip. However, the work waited for me. Sigh. As a reward for catching up, I will be doing kundalini yoga @ Yoga Yoga South tonight, then a Blessing drum circle somewhere (no idea where) with a friend. Saturday is World Labyrinth Day, Beltane & birthday party for another friend... a busy life!

Hurrah... stay away rain!!

too much stuff to do...

So, here is a birthday card I made for Rebel to hand to someone else. Very easy, simple, and not too over the top... that was the request. Seems it was for an ex... sigh. Brayered the right side background piece to match the scrap I used on the left side. Gold leafed rice paper for the sentiment and corner pieces.. that's it.

As for the vacation trip to Mississippi? Absolutely freakin' wonderful, even tho only managed ONE moonlit walk on the beach. There really was a LOT of other stuff to do there. Altho, it must have been the right night for that beachfront walk because I was gifted with a fresh arrival on the sand.. a large, completely intact horseshoe crab! Bless my cohort in crime, who was not at all freaked by driving 12 hours back to Texas with dead shellfish.
