Maggie with Coneflower

I am not sure what the name of this sweet little Maggie is but I love her.  If you know who she is, please leave me a comment so I will be able to identify her.  I had some paper in my stash that I really liked and wanted to use.  You can't see it but the paper is sparkly and so summery.  So I got my Copics out and colored her up.  I then used my MS grass punch and made some grass for her to stand in.

The garage sale is behind us.  The first day was very hot but the second day was cloudy on and off.  We didn't open on the last day due to rain.  Yup, finally we got rain!  Just short of a half an inch. First measurable rain since mid June.  Now we are back in the heat.  99 today and in the 90's for the rest of the week. Rumor has it that we are in for a long hard winter.  I guess time will tell.  We really do need moisture but it takes a ton of snow to get a little moisture so I vote for a rainy fall :)  Back to the garage sale, we did quite well.  Our expensive stuff is still here and the junk sold.  But there was a lot of junk and we have a nice chunk of change in our wallets.  Now to sell the more expensive things. Unfortunately I didn't have one stamper here - oh yes, I did.  My friends Georgia and Jan came and there was one man in his late 60's (a guess here) in coveralls and looking like he may have just come in from a junk yard.  He said he was a stamper and bought several stamping magazines for ideas.  Said he had tons of stamps at home.  Go figure!  I thought he was putting me on but when he started talking he sure knew the lingo so who knows.  That being said, I have a lot of Stamping Up! stamps still for sale, so if you are interested please email me.

A long weekend coming up.  Stay safe and enjoy it.  Anyone traveling?  If so please share where you are going.  Always looking for new ideas.

Until next time, Happy trails to you...
