I wanted to play with my watercolor crayons so I pulled this older stamp out of my stash.. .I still haven't figured out how to use them properly, but one of these days it will come. You know what they say-practice makes perfect.


Stamp:Unknown, I have had it so long I can't remember, and I unmounted it a few years ago

Want some Blog Candy?

No, this blog candy is not from me, but it sure is wonderful. I LOVE High Hopes stamps, they are so cute, and now here is a chance to win some. For more info go to this blog Stampin' Stuff. Look around for awhile too....she has some great eye candy.

Lazy Dayz

A quick 4x4 card using my scor-pal, watercolor pencils and dove blender, and some chalk for the sky, although I don't think it showed up well in the scan. These colors are very light and pastely so the scan didn't do them justice. The whole card is so much cuter IRL.
Stamps: Precious Girl (retired TAC)
Paper: SU! Close to Cocoa and DCWV Peach
Eyelets are SU!, but from years ago

Thank You Card

Here are the cards I made to thank all the wonderful people who came to my baby shower or sent gifts to celebrate the Juliana's arrival. These are very simple, but a little more time consuming that I had planned.

Stamp set: Circle Sampler (TAC)
Circle punches, cuttlebug embossing folder -with Big Shot, scalloped scissors, Scor-pal, X-treme white gel pen
A wonderful update on my health for those of you who were following that. I just received the results of my last blood work, and everything came back within the NORMAL range!!!! PRAISE THE LORD!!! It is great to feel normal-as normal as I can with getting up in the night as often as Juliana insists she needs to eat =).

Baby Boy Card

Here is a card I made for a friend of mine who just had a baby boy. We were both due the same day, but both of us had our babies about 3 weeks early, and only about 3 days apart.
The image for this card was already stamped and colored from a previous set of cards (more on that later), so the card went together very easily.
Stamps-Hello Baby, Running Stitches (boht TAC)
Paper piercer, Oval punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder, corner rounder for scallops
