I love these new Mimi stamps

Hello Friends, Can you believe that it's Friday again?? Time flies when you are getting older. Any plans for your weekend?? I have to catch up on everything...especially emails! Today marks seven days for me....seven days of a detox program I am doing. That's 80% veggies and 20% fruit so... that means lots and lots of chopping and cooking all week. I do feel great though.

Merci
You might recognize these cards? I made them for the Penny Black 2011 Spring Catalog. I colored them with Copics for the face & hair and  Tombow (water color markers )for the body etc. Love the  background and you can find it in the supply list. The bright and yummy papers are from the new Penny Black "Mix & Match" papers.

Merci
One day I hope to have a video for you showing you some of my coloring techniques. Would you like that??

Do you like the sentiment "bubble"?  I traced a "post it note" that was in this shape.

Hello Friends, It's Wednesday so that means another fun challenge at The Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog.  Taking a look at my card do you have any ideas what the challenge might be?? Don't forget that a random winner is selected each week for a $50.00 voucher.

The image is called "Hello Dear" and I couldn't wait to color this image from Penny Black. I colored it with Copic markers & the colors are shown in the supply list below. I created the leaf frame with a punch that I love ... this new Martha Stewart vine punch. After punching out the vine I split it in half by cutting it down the middle with some scissors. This way it was easy to bend around the circle. (My circles were cut with Spellbinders). I wanted the flowers and ribbon to match the flower pot so I colored the white flowers with an orange Copic marker and used buttons to fill in the center of the flowers. For the background I used this Basic Grey paper with the tiny print. My orange paper is from Penny Black's Mix & Match "Summer Sun" . The dotted ribbon from Jillibean was a the perfect color to tie it all together.

I used this fine tip marker to draw the grass behind the image & draw lines on the leaves of the vine. To dot the leaves on the vine I used a Uni-Ball gel pen. After layering I added some gemstones. My favorite brand of gems is from Kaiser. I recently used these same gems on this card....I find the bronze color goes with so many different colors. When I was finished assembling my card I realized I didn't have a sentiment on my card. Rather than find a stamp to fit onto my card I just reached for a page of my sentiments from SRM stickers they are so nice to have on hand.Thank again for visiting my blog. I am always grateful. Enjoy your week! Hugs, Kathy
