To Serve And Protect

For the month of September, this image is free! If you go to Facebook HERE you will find all the details.  There's a special challenge going on all month long with free images for anyone and everyone who wants them, plus a chance to win a prize every week.
With all that's been going on lately, we want to be a light in the darkness, and tell the brave men and women who lay their lives on the line to keep our streets safe that we appreciate their sacrifice and bravery.  Its time to let love shine! So, I will be sending this card to my local law enforcement, just to put a happy thought into their day.  Will you, my fellow card makers, do the same? Join the challenge HERE.  Please email me if you are not a member of Facebook and still would like this image and I'll pass it on to you.  I don't want anyone left out. (must contact me before the end of September to get it free)

Doggie's Little Behind

Hi Peeps! Here's a CAS (Clean And Simple) card I did for my daughter's birthday.  Yup, I have been late with cards lately.  Just a lot of stuff getting in the way of crafting time!  I think you know what that's like.  Anyway, I coloured this "Doggie's Little Behind" stamp using Copic markers and had fun with the purple background using the zero blender to remove bits of colour.  
Thanks for looking!

Hi Peeps!

Long time no post!  For quite awhile, I could not use my blog because my computer's operating system had become out-dated.  I finally upgraded, so I'm back!  We have some catching-up to do!
Here are today's offerings, using 2 of my newer images from a set called "Bee Happy".  It is found at Whimsy HERE.   Be sure to check out the fun Release Party going on at the Whimsy page on Facebook.  Denise (owner of Whimsy Stamps) has several ways to get in on some chances to win freebies and shopping coupons to the store.  Here's your link to all the fun: July 2016 Release Party Thanks for popping by!

Hopping Raccoon

Hi Peeps, another Christmas card to share. I used "Hopping Raccoon" which is currently on sale at Whimsy! It isn't a Christmas image but by adding the red santa hat and colouring the pogo stick like a candy cane, I was able to turn it into a Christmas image! I coloured it with Copics. Here is a link to the Whimsy catalogue where you can find this rubber stamp: Hopping Raccoon
 Thanks for lookin!

Penguins Carry The Tree

Here's one of my Christmas cards so far.   I stamped "Penguins Carry The Tree" onto hot press water colour paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I let the ink dry, then painted with Twinkling H2O's.  I used Snow Tex (from Michael's) for the snow, then while it was still wet I added Twinklets Diamond Dust (crushed glass).  Thanks for lookin!

Christmas Pup in Stocking
I drew a little Penguin Santa Claus image in black and white, and I would like to offer a digital copy of that image to you, free of charge, just to say "thank-you for supporting me and Whimsy Stamps throughout the year."   I printed it, coloured it up with my Copic markers, and used it on a card, just to show you the possibilities:
