Is it Friday Yet?

I don't know about you but I am so ready for this week to end. Plus I have to work late tomorrow night ughhhh. It's supposed to be -25 tomorrow evening I just heard. I just absolutely hate cold weather and winters uck uck uck. I had another small mail day today from Stamp and Create. I didn't get a chance to take pictures yet. So here is a card I made this past weekend. I love this little pig makes me smile. This little pig is from Chrissy Armstrong and is available at Whimsey Stamps. I used some paper I think maybe My Minds Eye. I don't remember I only had one sheet of it. The ribbon I got at Michaels and colored this one with Copics. It's in my Etsy Store I will try and remember to take a picture of the stamps I got today and post them later... Have a good evening..

Good Mail Day

Thought I would show you what the mailman brought me today.. Yippee I get all mine from it is not owned by Dick anymore someone by name of Jon owns it but he's given me great service so far. I think I've placed 3 or 4 orders since Dick retired.Aren't they fabulous stamps. I love Mimi she is my favorite. Have a great afternoon and hope everyone is staying warm. It's actually kinda cold here today with the wind. I last checked it was 20 above... about 20 below with the wind it feels like.

St. Patrick's Day Dragon

Hey I am getting better it's been less than a month since my last post. While I was thinking about it thought I would show you a card I did this past weekend. This little guy is cute isn't he. I just love it when Whimsey Stamps comes out with a new release. I usually buy a few. This time I didn't get any Elizabeth Bell design ones but got a couple of Crissy Armstrong's and a new Artist they have Heidi Schwoerer which I have seen her images somewhere and now I don't remember I look at so many dang sites. Well anyways this little guy is "Bart on St. Paddy's Day" you just got to love him huh. Another thing I have been complete stuck on lately is water coloring with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers... Love love love em. I was really hoping that they would come out with the 12 colors that were special edition and now they are part of their color line at the last CHA but I never saw them on any of the sites that I was keeping track of for preorders. So if someone has any info on that let me know. When I first tried them I didn't really like them but as previously stated the Canson Monteval Spiral Pads are just the best for Watercoloring. I tried getting the smaller pads but I go through them way to fast. I bought 4 of them at Jerry's Artarama cause they had the best price of anywhere I found them at but you got to make that shipping worthwhile which is why I bought 4. I am on my 2nd one currently I already went through one. You can fit quite a few images on one page. These were bigger so I could only fit 6 per page of these ones. Ok wow was I rambling or what. Ok this image was colored with Distress Markers. I used Liquid Applique on the suds of my beer. I thought about making my Beer green but went with traditional colors instead cause I already had so much green. Isn't he too cute though.. Ok have a great week and stay warm.. TTFN

Valentine Card

I know I have been so horrible about posting anything new. Seems like real life gets in the way and there is never enough time. Hope everyone is enjoying the new year. Thought I would share to you one of my new listings on Etsy.

This is an image by Victoria Case. I just love this little dog. The stamp was Paper Pretties when I was on their team not sure if they still sell them or not. Lots of different sayings you can put in the sign. I added some black lacquer to the paw print and the paper I got at Archivers. Ribbon is from Michaels and the hearts I found on Ebay in bulk.

I have been hooked on water coloring with my Ranger distress markers. When I first preordered them I really didn't care for them until I seen someone using Canson Monteval Watercolor paper. And am I glad that i seen that cause they blend really easy with water on that paper. I am really hoping for CHA this year they release all their special colors into Markers since they have another dozen of them since the release of the markers.

Have a great evening..
