When our stamp group was in Des Moines, We were at Outstamping Designs and I saw a card made similar to this.  Same colors but a bit different.  I had to have this stamp!  It is a Penny Black stamp called Bejeweled.  I inked it with Distress inks as did Suzanne did at Outstamping.  I think it came out so pretty.  Definately doing more of these!

I am linking this up to the newest NEBUS challenge,  as it was the first time I have used this stamp.

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Cute puppy

Sandy Allnock had a video on coloring these Crazy Dogs by Tim Holtz.  I had just bought the stamps and hadn't had a chance to use them yet so I got out my Copics and tried one of them.  They are such cute images!  This card went to a little girl at my church who had to have surgery.  I hope she likes it!  I was going to use google eyes which would have been fun but this little girl is so young so thought it was maybe not a great idea.

I have to report that after all the heat, it is actually chilly today!  Cloudy and a few rain drops but cool.  Feels kinda good but I hate the thought of winter.  Summer goes by in a flash and winter hangs on forever!

I am entering this in the latest NEBUS challenge over at Darnell's blog :http://www.djkardkreations.com/

Until next time, happy trails to you...

Sleeping Under the Stars

I had so much fun creating this card!  I used my Distress Inks for the night sky and some PTI dies for the rest of it other than the little guy in the sleeping bag and that was a stamp off from a friend.  I think it is from Close to My Heart.  Our sky is supposed to be active this month so I thought it was a perfect time to showcase this one.  And around here school starts this Wednesday so not many more weekday chances to sleep under the stars.

Until next time, happy trails to you!
