Hello Friends, I have lots to share with you today. I am just beaming with something new that I just purchased. First ... the challenge.. it's that time at Simon Says Stamp Challenge BLOG. I hope you will check it out. I want to remind you that each week a random winner will be selected for a $50.00 certificate.

These yummy cupcakes are from Unity stamps here. The product that I am really really excited about is this Piercing Mat..... it saves you  soooo much time & it works so beautifully !!!!!!!!! I discovered that if I pierce the punched holes with this Martha Stewart punch I can create a the appearance of a doily. After I pierced (with this handy tool) inside the punched holes I added some faux stitching with this white gel pen. See below for a close up.

All of these supplies will be listed below and as well as the Copic colors. To create the "wall paper" background I used this Penny Black paisley stamp that I use for almost everything. The Paisley Background stamp was inked up with Worn Lipstick & a little Rusty Hinge distress ink. I also added layered the two distress inks to distress the corners. The papers are "Summer Sun" & "Rose Garden" from Penny Black's mix and match papers and the card base is a craft note card from Jillibean.  I almost forgot the yummy cupcakes. I stamped the icing one more time. Once they were colored I added Rock Candy distress stickles to the pink & red icing. Have you seen this new handy Glossy Accents? I added that to my cherry. I also use GA to adhere EVERYTHING!  I rarely use a tape runner. Glossy Accents will out live me :) Ok befoe I go more thing........

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 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.

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.

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.
