Hi everyone!  Yes, that’s right, it’s me…and a month hasn’t even gone by yet! I just wanted to share an entry I made in the round robin art journal swap I’m participating in…I’m still pretty new to this as far as experience, but I’m learning, AND having a lot of fun… This journal belongs to […]


This past Saturday, June 6, was our wedding anniversary…and to make it memorable, it snowed…yes…it snowed…when the weatherman said we could experience some “unseasonable cold,” I truly didn’t expect THAT cold…rain turning to snow…OMG…will it ever warm up? However I do have some exciting news!  Heidi, the owner of online store, The Pink Hedgehog Paper […]

Fortune Teller – Artistic Outpost

Today I’m featuring another piece created from a new release from Artistic Outpost called, “Fortune Teller.”  This 8 1/2 x 11″ plate is packed full of versatile images!   The image was stamped on Whisper White cardstock (SU!) with Palette Hybrid Noir ink, and then colored with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits.  I used […]

Just a quick post today…fitting for a card that was quick and easy to make.  This is this  week’s Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge from Mary Jo at Techno Stamper… To add a little more dimension, I mounted the sentiment to the green scallop oval with dimensional tape, and added the purple half pearls to graphics […]

Bloggers Challenge 43 – Chipboard

AAAAKKKK!  I thought I was really on the ball this week by getting my challenge done last night-and not DURING the night either!  But, I just realized that I had NOT posted my challenge because I had not yet taken a picture of it!
