Digital Image Challenge on OWH

I made these in October while sitting in my "Arizona Room" listening to the F-16's fly overhead.  I used Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol mineral spirits.  It was a multiple first attempt - at the
Gamsol - Nestabilities and digital images.  I had forgotten to put a mat underneath and the effect on the hat turned out really nice and marb-leeeee !!!    I added sentiments to them before shipping them off to Sandy at OWH.  I love Nestabilities!  I had to work with them to get them to work well in my Vagabond - they got stuck once - and I cried!  But it all worked out!

Puppy love card for OWH sketch #97

I may be stretching using my cad to match the challenge!  The measurements meet the specifications - I used a digi stamp of a springer spaniel and a few doggie paws.  I am actually sending this card to a springer spaniel names Cocoa - it's her 105 birthday!  She is a rocking puppy!  She has a springer puppy (not hers) in her home now - named Callie rose - there is nothing more beautiful than watching 2 springers with fluffy floppy ears run around!  That IS puppy love!

I was in Green Valley, AZ visiting my son - I had looked up scrapbooking stores b4 I left - who wouldn't have!! Found the store and some really unusual papers and stamps!  here is a picture of the stamps - I made the mistake of writing the wrong info by the stamp - so follow my arrows!

Another Love Card for OWH Challenge - Midweek Throwdown

Funk Oh Funk B Gone With YOU!

Here is a question - IF I don't feel like creating - why do I still feel buying to be a necessity???  Today I bought Copic Marker E000 - because I had a 40% of coupon!  Then I went to a different store and bought a Nestability with another coupon - cuz the 1st store only takes 1 coupon per customer! I really like the Nestability - got it to work really nicely with my Vagabond - and partially made a card using my trial cut out.  Just not really motivated to high performance right now.  Guess I will go read the 21st book in the Sisterhood series by Fern Michaels!

A LOVE card

I have not made anything in over 2 weeks - that does not unfortunately mean I haven't bought anything!  I had 2 epidural injections in my spine - which put me down for a couple of days - but when my pain is bad and it is unresolvable (not helped my medication) or just so constant relief is minimal - I tend to roll into myself - and hibernate.  This is where I have been!  Today I finally felt a tad of inspiration - and found enough relief to be creative.
