This is the second card I made, also with a southwest theme... This one was made with a brass dry-embossing template of a goat petroglyph- petroglyphs are ancient images carved into the rocks... there are a number of sites in AZ where you can see these, although we haven't seen any yet. Instead of using the embossed side, I used the "de-bossed" side to represent "carving" into the rock. I added very tiny (1/8 invh, maybe??) swirls punched from turquoise paper, and the piece de resistance ( I think, anyway) is the feather and beaded accent tied onto the corner.
They are now for sale in my shop; hopefully somebody else will think they turned out as nice as I think they did!
In other news, the Buzz and Bloom ACEO from the previous post was purchased (YAY!!) by a woman who is putting together a collection of ACEOs from artists in all 50 states- my ACEO covers Arizona. That is a really neat idea, and I could totally get into something like that, although I think if I started to buy ACEOs it could really get out of hand- there's a lot of interesting artwork out there!

have been posted on my flickr site... there are pics Tom took today of the house, and some recent pics of Sedona after her 2nd birthday trip to the beauty parlor! Look for them in the "House" and "Pets" folders.
sorry updates have been so haphazard lately- it's amazing how quickly the time seems to fly by!
Tom has been in town the past week or so; he switched his work hours to better cope with the excessive traffic. 8 - 5 hours were murder in terms of the traffic; his new hours are 6 - 3, which helps a LOT. Plus, since my work hours are 6 - 2:30, we have more time to spend together in the evenings. (Now, if he could just get out of the office on time!) He will be heading out for an entire week soon (to the Chicago area, and the Minneapolis suburbs) with Warren, his most recently hired installer.
We had friends over yesterday, so we did a thorough housecleaning (thus, the pics of the house). I even found my desk, and the floor, in my crafting room! Maybe I'll even do some stamping, now! I haven't really been in the mood for it lately, and I think the chaos in there had a lot to do with the lack of creative spark.
