Hi Friends, I am back in Maryland after almost a month of traveling to see my Dad in California and the In-Laws in Ohio. I brought home with me a cold...its been years since I had one...2010 I think. I have finally passed the hacking up a lung phase and I think it is winding down now on day 6.
I did not take a lot with me to work on crafting wise, but I brought along a set of 50 alcohol markers by Color It...the case sold me I admit. I had one last amazon gift certificate from 2016 gifts and decided to splurge. I don't like traveling with my copics. I stamped out several images and colored them up.
This is a combination of an older Hero Arts sentiment stamp and some Uniko Flowers. I need to work on the placement a bit more but I love the idea and I have other larger sentiments stamps that could be prettied up a bit.
As soon as I saw Sandy Allnock's cards with these MFT polar bears...well I had to have them. They remind me of the Coca Cola bears...whom I love!
Okay so these MFT Elves are just adorable..and who says you can't use them year round? This one is going with a non-holiday gift to a girlfriend. The sentiment is fab! Another had to have stamp set.
I am a reader, I love books so this stamp definitely caught my eye. During 2016 I wanted to read a book each week. The holidays and our travel schedule threw me off a bit. I only managed to read 41 books. I am going to give it a go again this year...hope I find some new authors to read. I love political thrillers, spy novels, sweet romances, and medical thrillers. I found a few new authors this year that I haven't completely read out.
Are you a reader? Who are your favorite authors?
