It's another Bloobel Stamps Kind of Day

Happy Happy Wednesday My Dear Sweet Friends

Today is an exciting day because this is my 200th blog post.  It's been an up and down hill battle through the years but I am still here and don't plan on going anywhere. I only hope it continues to grow.  As a lot of you already know I have had a lot of serious health issues these past three or four years but I am leveling out in some ways and learning to deal with the health issues I can't change.  It also means I have learned "naps" are a good thing and they are so yummy.  



Today is also exciting because I have this project I made today using two new images from Lisa Bloobel owner of BloobelStamps on Etsy and the link is below.  The two images I used above are from Lisa's new collection and as soon as I get the link I will update this blog post.


I created this project with a flat canvas and added resized the images to fit on the one page.  I colored them with my Copics and my new set of Artiste watercolor dual pens.  I also used a couple of stencils to create the background and various colors of Tim Holz Ink.  I wanted this whole project to be quirky and funny just like Lisa's amazing creations.  And I found the perfect sentiment to complete the project.

I hope this project makes you smile and I also hope you will check out Lisa's two Etsy Shops.  I will add the link to her second shop very soon.  

I appreciate your stopping by and your comments.  They really make my day!

Happy Happy My Dear Sweet Friends

Today I am sharing a card I made using a fabulous image from artist Sandra Caldwell.  Yes, it's a DT project buy boy was this amazing card to make.  Actually the image is amazing - I just love it - and just want to do it justice.  I have listed the link to this image, the link to Sandra's Facebook page and her Etsy Shop below:






I used Copics to color him, fussy cut the image out and attached it to the background cardstock.  I also added the wonderful quote, rick rack and a little more cardstock.  I really hope you get a kick out of him - I sure did (and still do).

Thanks so much for stopping by - I always appreciate it and your comments make my day.

Grunge meets Glam - Mixed Media World Challenge for May

Happy Sunday My Dear Sweet Friends

Since today is Mother's Day I just want to wish each of you mom's, grandmothers, 

I also want to wish all you mom's, grandmothers, aunties and every lady in between a Happy Mother's Day.  May your day be extra special.

Today I am sharing my Design Team project with Mixed Media World.  The theme for this challenge is Grunge and Glam (I like to say Grunge meets Glam).  Anyway, I wasn't really sure what all that meant but you can see by my altered canvas below what I came up with.


The DT has some amazing projects to look at and it would be wonderful if you joined in our challenge this month.

Here's the link to Mixed Media World and we sure hope you will join in.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed day.
