Goodbye Marlooney??? (Not so fast... I WILL STALK YOU)

I am so sad to read that Marlooney is 'retiring' (is that the proper word?) from our blogging community.... TO LIVE HER LIFE.  

Just Kidding.... sort of.  She has been such a good blogging friend and inspiration to me.  I've only been fortunate to know her a bit over a year but, like you all, she has entertained, inspired, and made me LAUGH.OUT.LOUD!!! (A "LOL" simply doesn't express the laughter that came out of my pie-hole).  
Luckily, I know where she lives and have the financial means to stalk her... although only in the warmer seasons.  I do not stalk in snow, Marlene.

If you haven't been reading my prior babbling posts, please quickly RUN to try to read and view some of her blog entries.  HERE!  I hope she won't take her blog away from us.  Please leave it up, Marlene!!!
It'd be like reading Judy Blume books on a bad day. 

I understand she will still be creating her fabulous images and selling them on Squigglefly-- so she won't be gone forever!  

I didn't make the cards displayed below for Marlene but I was going to showcase them tonight. How poetic.

All kidding aside, I'll miss your blog postings, Marlene. You'll always be 'the QUEEN' to me. And.... Yes, I Will Stalk You (snort).  :)  Your student and fellow tv junkie, Naomi
These cards are 5.5 x 8.25 ".  I used a Britta Swiderski's idea of using silver Embossing powder and Distress Stains. (Seriously... my 2012 Resolution is to try to create something On My Own.  I'm so thankful there are talented people I can copy to get my technique down-- however I really have to take the training bra off...  LITERALLY)
The clear stamp is a clear stamp set (I believe Inkadinkado, at Michaels).  I then rubbed Distress Stain (Tumbled Glass and Broken China or Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick) over it and rubbed it all in with my fingers (very messy). I also sprayed some Perfect Pearl on it. I used white watercolor paper to absorb the ink.  The ribbon is from Michaels (50% off!!!) and the sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink (using either Melon Mambo from Stampin' Up or Speckled Egg from Jenni Bowlin).  The sentiment tag is a Spellbinders nestability. 


  1. I agree with you, Marlooney shall be missed!

  2. Awww, you are so sweet. You can stalk me anytime, lady. You know where to find me. :)

    Your cards are stunning....and again, thank you for a wonderful tribute. I'm touched, really. (And not just in a "in-the-head" kinda way!)
