Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. Thank you to all of you who left an opinion on which of the DSPs should be used for the base of my monstermaniacs Halloween card. I loved reading all of your opinions. Number 2 was the winner - with number 4 the second choice! So, the she-monster will be permanently housed on the Pumpkin Pie DSP. Here's the final choice: Now, more importantly, I put the numbers 1-22 into the Random generator. Number 1 being the earliest comment and number 22 being the last. Here's the result: Based on that calculation, Sally D is the... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. Hope you all had a great weekend. We had a relaxing weekend, did a few things around the house and Lou is now in the garage installing the storage units we finally got around to buying today! Me, I spent a little time in my craft room playing around with Monstermaniacs and Designer Typeset. I'm so in love with this Monstermaniac set and knew that I wanted to create a Halloween card. I stamped the moster, colored him with Copics and then set about chosing a background DSP. Mmmm... that's when I became totally indecisive and... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday night. The fabulous Anne Marie has a great sketch challenge for us this week.

All that I had to do was... Read more →

Hi everyone. Happy Friday. Hope you have all had a great week. Me? I am so looking forward to 4 days at home. Yep! I have Monday and Tuesday off, so that means a long weekend and time to get into my stamping space! Lou has just returned home from 2.5 weeks in China, so I am going to make this a quick post and then go and cook dinner :-) When I was "attending" the last onlinecardclasses course, Tim Holtz used a product called embossing paste. I was pretty taken with this as a product and couldn't wait to... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday. I have a very quick post for you tonight. I never use Lovely as a Tree. I always seem to forget about it. But... over the weekend, I had this idea that was forming in my little brain and I knew I needed to try to get it onto paper. I wanted to create a snow scene in monochromatic colors of greys and white. Smoky Slate was the perfect way for me to do that, on condition that I did a "second generation" stamping. On it's own it's just too dark and wouldn't provide me with... Read more →
