Hello folks. Are you having a good week so far?
Using Technique Junkies Flourished Floral and Things I Want to do, I used my lonely Inktense watercolour pencil crayons. I had fun colouring them up and then painting them with a wet brush. The colours really are intense.
My background uses The Altered Design Paper technique from the April 2009 issue which you can find here.
I’m sure you’ve picked up on the fact that I love this stamp, if you are a regular viewer of my blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
It’s no secret that I love to colour, and one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to do projects for Christmas 2017 ahead of time instead of scrambling at the end.
I’m able to attend a luncheon and craft session bi-weekly before I go into my 3-11 shift. My girlfriend, Vera, puts on a beautiful lunch for the five of us, and then we each work on our own projects. Last year I worked on my felt owls and knitting for my soon to be first grandbaby, and currently I’m working on a gingerbread house with Christmas trees made of felt. With luck, it will be finished by next Christmas–LOL.
At Christmas we have potluck and exchange our homemade wares, and this year I am giving out these 2 1/2″ x 5 3/4″ bookmarks which I am going to have laminated professionally.
I coloured my Chocolate Baroque image, called Garden Lace Scene, with Prismacolor pencil crayons and odorless mineral spirits. I’m quite pleased with the results.
What New Year’s Resolutions do you have?
Howdy folks. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I got to spend it with my children for the first time in ten years, on the day of the 25th of December. Al’s daughter and her boyfriend were with us as well.
Today I have cats, cats, cats. Although I don’t own a cat I love anything cats–stamps, t-shirts, and even my day planner has gorgeous cats on them.
I stamped the inside with Hang in There Sentiment.
Have a Happy New Year. Let’s talk New Years Resolutions in my next post, shall we?
Hello folks. As you can see I’m on a colouring roll and couldn’t wait to sit down and take the time to colour up Elegant Mums from Technique Junkies. Also from their line is the sentiment Sentimental Sayings.

Hello folks! Today I changed things up a bit by posting a sympathy card rather than a Christmas card. When I was looking over my stamps, this adorable little angel tugged at my heart. Who knows, she might make it into a Christmas card yet. I used black and SU Marina Mist.
Technique Junkie Stamps used:
Peonies (background stamp)
I hope you’re having a wonderful holiday season!
I’m so blessed to have “penpals” via the internet. I am in talks with so many different stampers. My dear friend Nancy Gibson, from Texas, just mailed me some goodies. I can’t wait to play with them.
My dear pen friend Myoriah, aka Beth, from Idaho sent me this beautiful card. You can visit her blog Crafting the Frugal Way. She works with mixed media a lot.
Do you have friends you talk with over the internet? Stamping is such a good way to meet good friends.
Congratulations Myoriah, you have won my blog candy. Please contact me via the link on my side bar with your mailing address and we’ll get some glue sent off to you. I used Random.org to choose the winner.
You said: I’m thinking the Speed-Sew would be good for adhering ribbon and things like lace. Also I would like to start using more fabric on my creations.
