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.

Hooray for the Red, White, and Blue

Hidy Ho, crafty peeps!

Quickie post here of an anniversary card I recently did for my in-laws. Ya know, I really dislike that term..."in-laws". It sounds so corporate and institutional. I love my "second parents" (that's better). After all, they produced my dear hubby whom I love with my whole heart.

Anywho, it was their anniversary (on the same day as my hubby's and mine...not coincidentally). I wanted to make them a special card. Jonathan's (my hubby) mom has a GIANT Raggedy Andy in her office. He sits on the sofa in there. I think she keeps him there as a reminder of Jonathan (it was his growing up). So that's how I landed on the Raggedy Anne and Andy theme. I found the digital black and white outline of them somewhere online. I colored them up with my ever-trusty Prismacolor pencils (as per usual). They turned out cute if I say so myself.
