Warm Wishes

I finally participated in a SFYTT . It is the first time I actually tried. I have no idea what took me so long. It isn't my best card, or colored great, I just felt like trying. I am trying to get my stamp groove back. I used to stamp all the time and this past year I kind of pushed it all aside. I collected stamps like fine china to be looked at but not used. Not sure why, I just did. I am once again enjoying stamping. I think I started stamping around 7-8 years ago . I was trying to remember when I got the stamping bug and I think it was just before we moved to Cedar Park in 2002 or 2003. It started with an invitation to a Stampin' Up party. It took me about 3 more parties to start collecting supplies. I still have that purple Stampin Up Black ink pad from my first party.

Now I am a paper collector. I love all 6x6 paper packs , especially Basic Grey. I also love 8x8 paper packs from October Afternoon. I am sure there are others in my collection but those are the main ones. Oh and PTI LOL. I wish I had known I was going to become a color er along the way, I could have saved a ton of money on ink pads. I rarely use my colored ink anymore. I am torn between selling them all and holding on just in case I start using my solid image stamps again. I am rambling now... Good thing no one reads this blog LOL.

Cooking up Some Love challenge

Another Challenge from MFT... Let's Picnic. Finally figured out how to use the rolled flower die and I love it! I also used the wood paper I got from TCP as a sample. I stamped the picnic basket and then cut it out and coloered it with my copics. pretty cool stuff but it does want to curl after its colored. paper is from October Afternoon Modern Homemaker. Cute stuff. Having fun stamping again.

Great Catch

WoooHooo, on a roll again. I have a ton of stamps I have never used and I am determined to get inky. Another MFT , this time Fred Bear. I tried to use my copics to get a water color effect. It looks better in person. Paper is from Basic Grey Wonder pad. New Die from MFT as well.
