May Your Day be Filled with Adventures

After teaching two COPIC classes this past weekend, and a card class, I was SO in the mood to create! I decided to play with a new set of stamps I purchased from the Stampin Place. I couldn't resist buying this set after going to the Balloon Fiesta! The dies, well, I've had 'em for a while! They are from AMUSE - and - they hadn't been used yet, either! (are you seeing a trend?). The sentiment is one of my favorites from the TAC set Bug of Fun. I loved coloring the balloon in all of the bright colors!

It Takes a Long Time to Grow an Old Friend

I love this saying! It is so true!!!!!!

The base for this card was my Flowerpot Nestabilties. I stamped the flower pot using an old SU background stamp I had. The image is from Wonder and Joy, and the words from Old Friend (both TAC sets). Rather than use my COPICs this time - I again used my watercolor pencils.

Love is Like a Butterfly

With the warm weather in MN (80 degrees in March!!!!) I am starting to think SPRING!!!!!!! I enjoyed using this TAC doublesided paper on this card. I took out something different for coloring for a change - my Watercolor Pencils. Although I absolutely love my COPICs, it is fun to play with something else once in a while too! The image is from a TAC set called Flutterby. I'm not sure where the sentiment is from - but it fit the card perfectly!

Golden Oldies

I love the Golden Oldies stamps from Art Impressions. They just make me giggle! When I travel - part of my relaxation is coloring! Well - I was visiting AZ last week - and spent some of time with these images. Hope you enjoy 'em!
