Hi friends, I hope you’re having a great week!

Well, it’s the time of year where even here in Northern California we start to feel the temperatures start to shift  What I notice the most about this time of year is that the sun is setting earlier and earlier and its path across the sky is shifting to the south.  Thank goodness for fun fall stamp releases to ease us into the new season!

Today I’m honored to be guesting for Trinity Stamps’ Fall Release.  We’ve got a great blog hop with lots of inspiration and a giveaway so be sure to visit all of the stops!  If you arrived from Shanna Slater’s blog, you’re right on track.  If you want to start from the beginning, head over to the Trinity Stamps blog!

Hi there, I hope you’re having a good day!

Today I’m sharing some cute critters from Hello Bluebird.  These little guys have been sitting neglected in my stash for a couple of months but I finally had a chance to color them up.  The deer with the stack of books may be my all-time favorite critter! Continue reading “A Friendly Hello”

May This Autumn Season Bring A Bountiful Harvest…

20181112_212840

Hi there!

Today’s card features a pretty stamp from Art Impressions, from their Windows on the World collection.  I really enjoyed using watercolors to color this 2″ x 2″ image!

I stamped the Autumn stamp in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink onto Arches Cold Press watercolor paper.  Then, I used a small 2 round brush and Mission Mijello Gold watercolors to color the image.  And that’s about it!  To finish up, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks for visiting!

Happy November and happy first day of The Daily Marker’s 30-Day Coloring Challenge!  I’m looking forward to playing along and also to being a goodwill ambassador for the challenge, spreading love and encouragement all month.  If you’re not familiar with the challenge, read more here and come join in the fun!

For today’s card I pulled out a new and a slightly older stamp set from Neat and Tangled.  I love that this wreath can be for any season and today I’ve used it for a Thanksgiving card. Continue reading “Let Us Gather And Give Thanks”
