2nd Annual Stamp a thon

This was the 2nd annual girls stamping overnight a (mini
former TAC angel and a couple others) gathering at Shirley
Hotops house.  From the left: Marian (my mom), Diane, 
Patti, Shirley, and Cheryl.  We all brought two or more
projects, we stamped, laughed, ate, and ate, had precious girl
talk and bonding.  Was a wonderful w/e and we are all
looking forward to next year!  Planning on some one day
get togethers before then. Below is one of each of our projects.
More to follow!
We were all wowed by the Northern Lights technique by
my mom, this picture does not show its true beauty!

 This was one of my projects.   With this card you save the cut
outs for another project!

Isn't  this card by Shirley gorgeous!

And a lovely card by Cheryl!

Great technique by Patti, I can see using this  a lot!

Amelia is one of the sweet designs of Maybelle RO, I could not resist
pulling out one of her creations to play with when I got my Inktense
pencils for my birthday.  What fun to play with!  I was happy with
how they colored.  I used Inktense on the dress, bow, flower, and leaves,
I used Copics on the rest. Then I cut Amelia out and popped her
up on a white die cut.   Pattern paper is by Jillbean  Soup.

Thinking of You

I made this card up in a few colors but like the black  best,
it is the most striking to me.  I used a Quick Kutz
nesting lace oval die cut, Hero Arts/Sizziz Framelits
stamp and die cut, and a Morning Star stamp for the lace
line.  It is hard to tell by the picture but I dry embossed
above the lace embossing. This card was inspired by a
Gina K tutorial.

Here are a few of the Valentines I sent out this year. Valentines Day is
such fun.  My husband spoils me, since it is also my birthday so he does
not want me to feel slighted.  We are going to my favorite restaurant for
lunch and are just going to have fun all day!  I have a few surprises for
him too!  Enjoy your day!
Make it Monday: Anything Goes

I'm back with another one of the Cuddlebug Cuties,
I am trying to improve on hair and faces, I'm okay on faces
but have not mastered hair. I need to print several and
just color everyday, good excuse, coloring is such fun!
If you look close you can see the sparkles in my background
paper DCWV, Nana's Kids, Cardstock is Amuse.  I also added
added a pearl embellishment from my stash and used my Sakura
pen to make it into a necklace for additional sparkle!
Does anyone have a good color combo for Asian hair and skin,
I would appreciate if you could share that with me?
