Be Still.....


Hope you are not sick of this tulip stamp from Penny Black Stamps, I know I have been using this a LOT in the last couple of weeks but I just love it and find it so relaxing to watercolor.  I colored right on the stamp with markers, first with yellow, then orange and finally red; spritzed with water and stamped after each color.   The sentiment is from Verve stamps and just felt this was a fitting scripture for the times.

A little bit of SPRING!

Can you feel it? SPRING is in the A.I.R!   I have been enjoying the sunshine the past few days!  I absolutely love, love, love this little Teddy Bear from Penny Black Stamps.  Stamped with Black Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers.  The designer paper is from The Paper Studios.

First Waltz

T.G.I.F from GA!  Thank the Good Lord we finally have a sunny day!  It is a wicked windy day but at least the sun is shinning!  I had this tulip stamp called First Waltz by PB Stamps sitting on my desk from the other day so I decided to  ink it up again.  Tulips are one of my favorite flowers because they are usually one of the first flowers to bloom in the spring!  I used my Tombow markers and colored right on the stamp, spritz with water and stamped, then I colored again but didn't spritz and stamped again.  I used Orange and Pink on the flower and 2 different shades of green on the stem.

Springtime Flowers

Guess what folks? It's another rainy day here in GA!  OMGosh I sure do miss my sunny AZ days!  I love this stamp from Penny Black Stamps.  I used my Watercolor markers and colored directly onto the stamp and then spritzed with water and stamped.  I did a little distressing with some Tim Holtz distress ink.

Enjoy Every Moment

I am in love with this cute mouse from a new Penny Black Stamp Set.  I colored with Prismacolor pencils and the paper is from my scrap bin.  I got a little smudge on the paper so rather than trash the card I added some enamel dots.

Wish Big

Hello friends, happy Monday!  I decided to play along with the current Mojo Monday Challenge.  I am using this sweet image from Penny Black Stamps, I colored with Prismacolor pencils and the designer paper is all from my scrap bin!  I am so proud of myself when we moved into this house back in Sept. while going through my papers I put all my scraps in this big huge box and was going to donate them and then that never happened so I started pulling papers from them while making cards, I have not bought any paper since we moved and most of what I have used is coming from my scrap bin!!

Ear to Ear

Happy Friday everyone... Can you believe it? I actually have a card to share with you today.  I decided to play along with this weeks sketch challenge at Mftstamps.  I used this sweet little bunny from the Easter Bunny set.  I colored with copic markers and the design paper is from MFTstamps. I added some light clouds to the back ground using a stencil.  Again, I apologize for not the greatest of pictures-the lighting is dreadful here in GA, I really and tired of all the rain.  I also still think I need to send my camera in to have it checked.

Big Birthday Wishes


Hello friends from rainy and dreary Georgia!  I have been getting back into my crafty space a little bit-still working out of totes which makes the process longer but I have been trying.    I just love this new set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Lots of Love, so many cute critters to color up.    I colored up this sloth with copics and the paper is from my scrap box.  I have been waiting a couple days for some brighter light to take better pictures but I got tired of waiting, its not the best photo but for now it will do.

Thinking of you

Playing along with the SCS sketch today..  Love this new to me stamp from Penny Black stamps from the set Fancy Florals.  I made the background with some oxide inks and stamped with Versafine ink.  I was going to use a Sympathy sentiment but decided I could use a Thinking of You card for more occasions.

Birthday Bear

Hello friends, Happy 2020 to all.. Sorry I have been missing in action lately.  Between moving across country and The holidays and now some health issues I have not even organized my crafty space yet.  I am trying to get back into the groove.  I found time to play with this cute new image from Penny Black Stamps, I used Prismacolor pencils.  I need to work on my cloud making skills.  I hope you all have a Healthy and Blessed 2020.

Thinking of you

Hello friends,  taking a crack in the craft room again...  Using this weeks MFTstamps sketch challenge- I started with this in my mind, I didn't turn the sketch just did it the upright way instead of the long way.  I used some distress oxide ink for my main panel and one of these fun flowers from the Flower Silhouette stamp set from MFTstamps.  I really need to get my butt moving and get my craft room together, this digging through totes to find things just makes the process so much longer and frustrating. 
Hugs,
