warm thoughts on being published

Hello all. i just wanted to share a card with you and share good news.

I was published in the recent Just Cards Summer issue.  My card is in the first section called Just Because. I think the World of you. I used Stampendous stamps. I love the Changito stamps. The kneehugger is so cute. you can color it so many ways.
I did direct to paper method to the mat. its a fun way to make background paper.

I would like to share this card with you today

I used red cardstock from Core d'nations to make a 5 inch square card.
Basic grey papers for the pattern papers. I got some craft tape from Micheals.
The stamps are Paper Smooches- healthy vibes set. I colored the cups with Distress Ink Markers.
I love how this card came out. Its so colorful and cheery.

Thanks for stopping today.

looking for hot days

well we are suppose to get some hot days in the next few. like 95 each day. i know i will be in the air conditioned living room, stamping and coloring images. that is a cool thing to do.

i did this card, hopefully to send for the troops. i love the paper smooches stamps. they stamp so well. i wanted to do a boys type card. the colors lend well to this style.
ever see a blue alien? i haven't lol. all the ones that i have seen on cards are yellow or green. I sent a batch of cards out to Operation Write home. i will do another later this week.

lulu love poppies

Hello all. I love having a day off. I have weird vacation at work. So i had to use up some days before our vacation renews. I decided to make some three day weekend. for the month of June. Love it. It is suppose to be a warm day. I love days off. I can do the little things i wanted to do, but not be rushed to do them.  I got to spend alittle time with my nephew before he is off to school.

I have been getting some of my card making supplies organized. well this is a chore. I have to purge the stash. I guess i will be making a donation somewhere. I might be able to stamp and get some cards ready to mail.

i got this stamp from my local stamp store. Stamping and Scraping Time. They get in some really nice things. This Stamp is Lulu loves Poppies by Stamping Bella.
I colored the image with a mix of Copic and Faber castell markers. I was just getting some colors of papers together to try. I want to do a bunch of cards with this image. She is so pretty, and i found out that poppies come in more colors than red. i can't wait to try then in blue.

Well have a great day. Stay crafty!

hi all . love these stamps from Stampendous. I found this one in the clearance section at Micheals. I just had to put ink to it.  I also got some of the Distress markers that came out. I must say i am loving the picket fence marker. using up the scraps at work for the pattern paper for this card.  i can't believe that its June first already. It seems that it was winter not long ago. I am not missing the cold weather. lol.
should i do a card like this for a magazine submission?
