Happiness is stamping with friends!


Hello … you make me smile!


Hi again!

When I collected my new Distress Oxide Inks at Mel’s Camp Papercraft in July … I couldn’t wait to try them out! This was my first attempt at blending! I think I overdid the colour a bit … but … boy … these babies blend like butter!! 😀


HINT: The Inks dry quickly and as they do … the overlap “softens” and seems to blend even more as it dries. So … you don’t actually have to work it too much. And … the blended section creates a new colour – a mix of the 2 that are blended giving a very satisfying result.

  • My Favorite Things – BG Whimsical Waves background
  • Word die & sentiment ??? — I think I may have borrowed one of Mel’s

Hope your day is special!

Hello friends!

I guess you have been thinking I had dropped off the face of the planet! But … even though it has been awhile … I haven’t forgotten all my blog buddies. I am sorry it has been so long! Life has been busy! But … I am not going to bore you with the details except to say that mostly it has been happy busy! 😀

I wanted to share a few cards with you and decided to start with one using a stamp set that always puts a smile on my face! It is super fun and perfect for those tricky male cards.

I had fun doing an embossed, sponged ink background and some copic colouring on the animals. The sentiment is adorable. I have another card to share using this set … hopefully that won’t be too long! 😉
