More Pansies

I played again with Technique Tuesday's Pansy stamp.  I gave some no-line copic coloring a go.

They really have a velvety look IRL.

Thanks much for stopping by.

Get Well Gang

Hi there...still in California. It is BLAZING HOT today 108 and its barely past noon.  A friend of mine is feeling poorly so I whipped up this quick card to send off to her.

I did buy a couple of stamp sets recently, one being WPLUS9's Get Well Gang - the images are adorable and the sentiments fit so many needs. Thank you's for when someone takes care of you, wishes for recovery and even a missing you.

I used some PPP sequins (wisteria blooms mix), Grape Jelly Memento ink, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, colored pencils and gamsol.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Father's Day

I had such a hard time this year with the Father's Day cards.  I needed to get them made ahead of my trip, and that kinda cramped my mojo.  I ended up making 14 cards during two weeks in May for must have deadline reasons. They didn't all get posted, and some will be posted this month.

Sometimes my cards get to the post office without a stop at the photo station!  Usually when I have a lot on my mind.

My hands down favorite all time wood grain stamp is the one from Stampin Up. Its a nice cling type red rubber stamp.  I stamped it twice in two different inks on two types of paper, one for the base one for the flag.  I added some brass colored brads to the flag - I think they look like nail heads, right?   The baseball looking font for the sentiment comes courtesy of a CTMH stamp.
