This is my place. My virtual room to chit chat and share my love of crafting with others who also go "gaga" over stamps, colored pencils, ink and paper. This is my space to stretch out with a cup of coffee or tea in my hand and my two dachsies asleep under my desk and say I made this card/gift for a friend...and I just wanted to share it with YOU!

...for no other reason than I like to color! I had these two images colored already, and with today morphing into a super busy day that I hadn't foreseen I only had time to assemble the images into cards. But, the time I had planned to create card for Virginia from scratch will be done either later tonight or tomorrow and I am really looking forward to making a birthday card! It feels like I haven't made one for so long. But back to today's cards. The first is a Penny Black Stamp called Two's Company 4165K here and, actually, this might be the first time that I have inked it up. I feel like I could have done more with it...I am not unhappy with this card just have a nagging sense of there is more to be gotten out of this stamp than I achieved...I think it has lots of possibilities and know I will have fun playing around with it! I would LOVE to have all the Fashion Girl stamps and make "sets" out of them....I think they are so fun and contemporary looking.
My second stamp uses a Northwoods Rubber Stamp Co image here that I really like but have found it a little awkward as far as finding a way to "place" it on a card. So again, I need to find some "mess around" time with this image to get it so I really love it. The paper is Basic Grey from their Jingle collection and the sentiment is a rub on from the clearance bin. The areas that I left white on the flowers I very lightly stickled with Diamond stickles and in person it has a really cool sheen that kinda POPS out. It doesn't photograph that way so you will have to take my word on it.....or, stop on by to my house. I have peppermint white chocolate covered pretzels that I will share with you ;-D
Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate the visit and any comments you might have about these two stamps!
