Hi, I'm Torrey. Welcome to Left Field, where creativity runs amok and imagination is ALWAYS more important than knowledge. Shoes are not allowed but ties are optional. This is a repository of snippets from my life out here in Left Field. One never knows what shiny bits of creativity will be found here... cards, scrapbook layouts, photography, poetry, recipes, ponderings, rantings and musings. It could be anything! Life in Left Field is always changing, always real, always ...interesting.

Hidy Ho, crafty peeps!

Short post today. In my last post, I made a last-minute birthday card. Well, I had leftover stamped images and a length of cut ribbon that I cut too short for the other card.

Problem: Can't bring myself to throw out perfectly lovely watercolor/stamped images and a decent chunk o' ribbon.

Solution: My sister just had surgery (back surgery...again. sigh.) so why not make her a cheery feel better card?

Problem solved.

The inside of the card simply reads... "Soon".

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Cloisonne Cat stamp - Michael Strong
Watercolor paper
Prismacolor pencils
stamping ink
Loopy edge and matching corner punch - Martha Stewart
organza ribbon


  1. Torrey, Such a pretty card, love the bright colors and I'm sure your sister is going to love it.

  4. I love Michael Strong's cloisonne images and you have done an amazing job featuring this one, Torrey. The blended watercolour is delightful... beautiful blending and it gives such an artsy feel to the card. The hearts make me smile. Thanks for joining our No Designer Paper challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon. I hope your sister has a speedy recovery.
