Woo-Hoo....

...starting to feel a bit better (I mean come on!-it has been like 10 days now of this nasty bug!) and today I was able to be up , about and crafting!  Fun, like seriously, just plain fun to be back "at the table".  So, the out put is low, the enjoyment factor is high and basically, this is what I got'....I thought that I would try and do some more tags for the Penny Black Gift Tag Challenge.  Honestly,  I made two cards with the same materials....just slightly different.  Because I offset the flower that I had colored in copics I was able to get the two tags from one stamped image...you know how it is...being a crafter it's all about "waste not/want not"! And, because I don't make tags as often as I could I try to stretch my materials, work and time to get more tagbang for my effort. (yeah/yeah-I know that tagbang is not really a bonafide word but you get my drift) .  So,  I used the Penny Black Sundail flower  and the sentiment is also Penny Black.


Then I had time to make a card and I just purchased this adorable Penny Black stamp .  And, usually, I don't "do" adorable.  I mean, other people do it so well that I haven't been nerve-y enough try  those images but for whatever reason this little mouse (and seriously???? I HATE RODENTS!)  really tickled my fancy.  Something so fun about the bed in a teacup....It reminds me of a book that was a fav when I was younger and one that I also read to my kids when they were younger...Beverly Cleary's book about Ralph S. Mouse and his red convertable ( which he got after his red motorcycle was destroyed.  I remember he wore half of a ping pong ball for a motorcycle helmet...but I,  quite embarrassingly, digress).  Here's my card and the sentiment is Penny Black again from the same transparent sheet listed above....


  And, I don't know why I can't get that darn card centered.....ugh.  So, well, thank you for stopping by.  Thank you for eyeing my tags and cards and I hope you are at the start of a great week!  I hope that I am at the start of a great week too! ;-D

Be well,
Sheila

Ah! I got to see your colored mouse! I don't usually "do" adorable either, but I'm finding they are quite addicting. Your coloring is awesome. The shading is wonderful, the highlights just glow. I can't wait to see you work your magic on more of these cutie pa tootie stamps! HUGS!
