What's Been Going On


Ok, just a quick note to bring everyone up to speed for the last few months of silence from me.  Of course, once again my chronic migraines are out of control, my primary care physician has moved out of state, and now my brand new daughter in law has been diagnosed with stage II lymphoma.  You pretty much have to live her to really believe all of the stuff that's going on.  I will try to post again as soon as I am physically able to.

Thank you for understanding.

My card today uses some scrap card stock that is 3.5 x 8.5 folded to create a smaller note card along with a small scrap white panel.  After stamping the images I wanted to use, I then pulled out my koh-i-noor wood less pencils along with an alcohol blender marker and got to coloring.  Once all of the images were colored, I hand drew in the mountains and stream, colored those then stippled the sky and added the birds before popping up one additional tree and some rocks. I then highlighted various areas using some copic spica pens.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.

I went fairly clean and simple with my card for today's set.  After stamping the vase in memento tuxedo black and coloring with prismacolor markers, I stamped several of the poppies from the Welcome Poppies set so I could cut them out and pop up for various layers of dimension.  Once that was done, I layered, added brads, some punched butterflies, drew a "flight trail" using a black marker, added some sheer ribbon, then stamped my saying from the newly released Tree Scene set.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
