This is my second post for today.
I am very lucky. So, so lucky. And feeling blessed. And excited!
You may ask why.
I won a new stamp set. *squeal* Not just any stamp set. . . a BEAUTIFUL new stamp set. From Jane's Doodles! This is the set:
Jane's Doodles Flikr Gallery entries for August. All you have to do to enter each month is use Jane's Doodles stamps, and load your project into the gallery. That's your entry. This is pretty easy for me, because I'm loving these stamps... as you may have noticed, LOL!
It may sound like I'm advertising, or that I'm being paid to say these things, but I'm not. I'm just thrilled with the stamps. I love them.
On to the reason for my post. I'm entering a card into One Layer Wednesday, which is over at Susan's blog Simplicity this week. The challenge is to stamp an image and colour it.
For my colours I have used the colours from the Play Date Cafe Challenge #99 (Ooh, almost to #100!). The colours are so soft, pretty, and sweet this week:
My card is here:
Stamps: Jane's Doodles Pretty Peonies
Card: Stamping Up! Whisper White
Ink: SU! Barely Banana, Lavender Lace, and Memento Tuxedo Black, and a Blender Pen
I'm still learning how to colour. I think I'm improving. I also did a little masking on this card.
A couple more photos for you, if you feel like continuing to hear me waffle on. . .
This week was my birthday. Presents aren't really my big thing. I like presents, but I am not so fussed on presents for presents' sake. BUT, when someone puts some thought into a present, and gets me something that I have never asked for but really, really wanted. And that present is USEFUL. This rings all my bells and fills me with gratitude. I received a couple of these types of presents this year. But one in particular I'm sharing with you because it is stamping related:
And one more. To take my card photos, I sit on the floor, beside the big windows at the front of my house, with my cards on a chair, getting as much natural light as possible. So each time I sit down, I suddenly have a very nosy companion attempting to get her nose into my picture, or her body on my lap. Every time.
So if you made it all the way to the end of this post, would you take a little time to leave me a comment to let me know you were here? I really love hearing what you have to say. I promise to come and visit you in return.
