2 CuteRubberStamps

I may have mentioned that I am on the Design Team for 2 CuteRubberStamps. They not only offer unmounted stamps, but digital stamps as well. The stamps are supercute and work well for use with your Copic Markers. Here is my Monday post...

I colored in the HulaHoop Hamster with my Copic makers, but added the shading with colored pencils and a blender pencil. Don't use Gamsol with your Copics or a mess will insue!!! I used a Martha Stewart corner punch for the photo corners, then used the matching border punch for the layered strip.
Finally I added Flower Soft for that added depth and voila!...Don't forget to visit their blog where you can also link up to the etsy store. Happy Monday everyone, take care!

Happy Memorial Day!

Hi everybody, I hope you are all having a great Memorial Day. Sadly I'm off to work, at o'dark early I might add - LOL, but thought I'd get a post or two in so that you'll be able to enjoy my card with your morning coffee.
This will be my last post as the Guest Designer for Critter Sketch Challenge and it's been a blast. The ladies are great and uber talented. Here is my latest creation for the "purple" challenge...

For this card I wanted to go old school, meaning I took out my Tombow pens, used watercolor paper and did a watercolor technique. The image is from Me and Carrie Lou and I used a gold sparkle embossing powder. I also used my Coluzzle to cut out the saying and punched a few butterflies for added depth.
Please enjoy and thank you for stopping by, take care!

Critter Sketch Entry - Challenge #15

Happy Monday everyone! It's been a crazy morning, life just didn't knock on the door, it busted the door down! Everything that could have gone wrong did, computer died, work called me in unexpectedly (always happens when I'm in my PJs) and the gas tank was empty. Needless to say I'm back home and life has quieted down! LOL
Here is my latest entry for the Critter Stetch Challenge Blog.

This little guy is done using Dustin Pike's digi stamps, colored in with Prismacolored pencils and Gamsol, plus I used some of the new FlowerSoft, that is in a finer texture than the original. This stuff is amazing!
Please enjoy the card and feel free to leave comments! Take care!

Scrapbooking Retreat in Perry, GA

Hi everyone,
The weekend has been fabulous so far. I was lucky enough to attend a scrapbooking retreat this weekend hosted by Create N Crop. The event has been well run and we received a ton of great stuff. My table mates, Evanda, Brenda & June have been friendly and fun. Here are some pics of the New Perry Hotel...

The Hotel has a great history and the grounds are wonderful. Here is a picture of part of the garden area...

So, not only have I met amazing ladies, I've actually gotten some work done. LOL! I was asked on Friday to join the Design Team for 2 Cute Rubber Stamps and that my first posting was this Monday! Needless to say I've been creating a bunch of cards using their digi images, which are adorable by the way. All I can say is life is good!
Tune back in tomorrow when I'll post my card and post a link to this new stamp company plus they also sell rubber stamps for those not familir with digital stamps! Have a great weekend everybody!
