Happy Mother's Day

I am sending this Mother's Day card to my aunt in Cincinnati. She's like a 2nd mom to me and she has 2 grandchildren, a boy and girl, and this image reminds me of them (even though they are in high school now).

So this past weekend I decided to organize my stamps, my dies, and my embossing folders. I have tried downloading it all onto the Evernote app in the past and got NOWHERE.  Well, I actually found a very helpful you tube video right here. And she made it super simple and I got a lot entered. Now I need to add my ink pads, markers, watercolor paints, and I will be all set :).

Being sick just stinks

I am sending this to a friend who recently fell and broke her wrist. I'm writing on the inside "Having your hand in a splint just stinks" but didn't have that saying in a stamp. LOL  Her cat is multi-colored so I tried doing it in 2 different grays.

Stamping on acetate

It's not often I stamp on acetate but when I saw this challenge at Little Red Wagon, I had to try it. I used Staz-On ink to stamp the flower and the sentiment with. Then I colored it with my Copics and let it dry.  What do you think?

Hello

I love everything watercolor. So this week when I saw a you tube video on these Spectrum Aqua markers, I knew I had to have them. They come in 4 sets and my Hobby Lobby only carries 2 of the 4 sets. I bought one set, tried them out, then went back and got the 2nd set. Now I want the last 2 sets. I have to have all 48 colors, right?  They are very similar to Tim Holtz watercolor markers since they have a fine tip on one tip and a coloring tip on the other end.

I colored the marker onto my craft sheet and then dipped a watercolor brush in water and colored this image. I added some washi tape to the top of the card and voila, all done!! Easy peasy!
