This is such a fabulous stamp that it doesn't need a lot of bling to dress it up; a simple web background a little accent and this fabulous stamp is all that is needed for a fabulous Halloween card!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thursday Thoughts on a Friday

Week two of school and a chance to breathe has definitely been needed!! What better way to relax than to pull out those stamps and play and forget all the troubles.

In fact, in the mail today, I just got a couple of gorgeous new stamps and the August Get Inked Kit

I definitely cannot wait to start stamping!! So, you know you want this kit so head off to the store and get one while there are still a few left!

Can you tell that I really like cupcakes and fruit? And cupcakes with fruit are the best. This little dragon seems to agree since he seems to have finished off his cupcake pretty quick and is saving the cherry to have just as soon as he doesn't feel so very full.
Until I started to look for what I wanted to post about this week, I didn't realize how often food seemed to be featured in my work. Tiny dragons and fairy cats with berries and cupcakes or a nice hot tea. I will confess that the fruit is more common for me to paint in the warm months when we are finding such beautiful berries and such in the grocery stores or growing wild on the the side of the road. And hot tea? My favorite winter treat.
Okay the apricots in the kitchen are calling..... At least I don't have cupcakes in the house to be tempting me late at night.

Thursday Thoughts

I think most of us have a definite style when it comes to our cards and the stamps that we use. When I first got this stamp from QKD, I was like "wow, she is gorgeous." Then I was like, "Oh no, what am I going to do with her?" It was really intimidating because while I love this stamp it was not my typical "style."

So, I decided to challenge myself and here is my card for this week: I used Dragonfly Stamp by Jesse Barber. This is such a unique stamp. I know that I didn't even come close to doing it justice but it was so much fun to play around with!

Witch's Vanity

Witch's Vanity is a painting I did imaging what would clutter the table tops in a witch's cottage for the cat to explore. And qkd has a new stamp based on this particularly curious kitty.
