I just love this cute image. It was so fun to color. I just have so much coloring with my copics. I think coloring is one of the reasons why I took up making cards. I have always missed coloring. When my daughter Staci was younger we spend many hours together coloring. She is grown up now so there is not much coloring anymore so cards are a great way of having fun coloring.
My favorite medium to color with is copics. I still am not completely thrilled with my coloring. Shading is just not my thing. I am working on it more and have found some wonderful videos on utube on the subject.
This is another Whipper Snapper stamp. I bought it months ago when my friend Kelly and I placed an order together. The shipping is so expensive that you really need to split the cost. Worked out great for both of us. Soon time to place another order I hope.
Hope you are enjoying the beginning of your weekend. I know for me I found this week so long that I am so glad that the work week is over. I really had a really bad week. Oh well, get over it and move on I guess.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Will be back soon with something new to show you.
I need to get back at the Card Sketches from Splitcoast.
Till later ...

I bought this stamp awhile ago from Whipper Snapper. I really love the ease of coloring these stamps. They are such a pleasure to work with.
I like to keep some cards to have on hand so this is just one for my card drawer.
I bought this designer paper before Christmas for one of these fund raisers for school. It was a nice different variety of paper.
Sorry I wasn't here before now but I have had a number of things going on lately that kept me from the computer. Life just seems to get in the way of stamping way too much lately.
Will be back soon with another card to show you.
Enjoy your evening.

I made this card for my dh. I always have so much fun using these stampscapes stamps. I wish that I had more of them to create some of the awesome images that people create on their website. I just can't believe the georgeous art work that people make from these stamps. Hopefully one day soon I will be able to show some of mine to you.
How was your weekend? For me I am finally on the mend a bit as I have had a bad neck and shoulder now for over a week. It has been a long week. Anyone who has had a pulled muscle knows how much pain you can be in. I hurt my heck and shoulders last weekend shovelling. Hopefully it will only be good days from here as I have to go back to work and am sure that I have alot to catch up on. Oh well! Such is life.
Hope you all have enjoyed your weekend.
Be back again tomorrow night with another card to show you.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I made this card for my dh to send to a friend for the loss of her husband. I always find Sympathy cards such a challenge but I really think that I should try and do up some to have on hand. It seems that we seem to need so many of these.
I am finally getting back into doing some stamping again after taking a break after Christmas. I always find that I make so much for Christmas that I need a break but this year I just took too much of a break. It is hard to get back at it but hopefully in time I will get my mojo back.
I do have more cards done to show you in the coming days.
I hope you all are enjoying your day!
See you again soon!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. I hope you all are having a nice romantic day with the one that you love. This weekend both me and my dh have been under the weather. I hurt my back shovelling on Friday and dh just feels lousy so we have spend lots of time just watching TV together.
I managed to finish this card for my dh. He was pleased with how it turned out.
Later we are hoping to go out to dinner. We will see how we both feel.
I had this image colored about a week ago but just couldn't figure out what paper to use. When I found this paper in my stash then came what do I do with it. Then the tent card idea came to me last night when I was just lying there. I am pleased with how it turned out.
Today is also the anniversay of my Mom's passing. My Mom passed away 7 years ago today. Can't believe it has been that long. So for me Valentine's Day is hard but I have to push through it and that is what she would have preferred. She was also the type of person filled with such love of life even when she was sick. I think that is why she died on a day filled with so much love. Mom I miss you so much.
Thinking of you always.
Enjoy the rest of your Valentine's Day. Remember to tell the ones that you love how you feel about them.
