Family Newsletter....

I just created a family newsletter for Sheldon & I. We have been married for 3 years and with being so far away from a lot of our friends and family I thought it would be good to create one.

More fun with new ink...

I am procrastinating a little bit. :) I am supposed to be studying for a test. I studied about 4 hours this morning...and a little this afternoon. But I should be doing nothing but studying.

However, instead I have been creating.

This first card I made for my inlaws went to the Caribbean for Thanksgiving and are coming back tonight. I thought this would be fun for them.

This other card was with a House Mouse stamp I purchased awhile ago. I had only used it once, since the stamp was really hard to stamp and get a clear impression. Which I found out is an ink problem. My new SU ink pad has taken care of that. I colored them both in with Prismas and used a blender pencil.

Christmas Time Is Here (Though it is almost 80 here)

Hi again,

Paper Crafts Magazine is having an online contest on gift wrapping. I am not that big of a wrapper normally....I have finally been able to get my gifts wrapped well enough for my sister not to believe that I have done it. LOL

However, I thought I would try this contest. Especially since this year we are giving away mostly gift cards. It is getting harder and harder to find gifts for family. Even Sheld & I have a really hard time buying each other gifts. We usually just pick them out ourselves.

Here are two of the gift boxes I have completed. One has a bit of ribbon, flowers and bling. The other one is a little more out there...with buttons, glitter, ribbon and snowflakes. :)

I also made a bow out of cupcake liners...but that isn't ready to be seen yet. I did that for my nephew is with Scooby Doo liners.

Pencils & Inks, Oh My!


I am pretty excited. I went to Michael's the other day and Prismas were on sale. I hard a hard time trying to decide between the 12 or 24 pack...However, I went for the 24. Yeah. :)

The same day my SU black ink came in. I am pretty excited...I am able to use my large stamps without killing my hands. One of my PC MB friends told me that it was pretty sad to be excited over ink and pencils...but that is the world we live in.
Here are the 2 cards that I created....I have some smearing on them. So don't look at that. Both stamps are Penny Black.
