Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


With Easter hopping along soon, I joined a Bunny swap over at Rubber Stamp Chat.

The bunny that I chose is too funny! He’s part of the DoodleFactory sets at Starving Artistamps. I flocked him and used my new grass border punch for the fun stuff at his feet. You can’t help but smile when you see him right?

I love making cards!

It’s Virtual Stamp Night this weekend on Splitcoast Stampers, so I thought that I would indulge myself in some stamping just for the fun of it.

So, VSN has various challenges under this month’s theme of You Make My Heart Sing. The hostesses are extremely creative with their challenges all relating back to the main theme. Great job ladies!

Here is another card with many more to come:

I just had to ink up this recent DoodleFactory set “Arctic” from Starving Artistamps for a couple reasons.

1. It’s been flippin’ cold out and even though it hasn’t snowed, it sure has been colder for a longer period of time since I moved here.

2. The Winter Olympics are on in Vancouver!

3. I wanted to join a card swap on FL Stampers where the theme was “winter scene”. Do you think this qualifies??
