Hello My Friends!! Thank you everyone for your sweet thoughts--I think I just got overworked and was tired out so the day off was good for me (gotta refresh that mojo every now & again, lol). So many of you have left me such sweet and awesome comments and it just makes me sooo happy to hear and so kind of you to let me know--I appreciate all your comments--you all are AWESOME!!
And then yesterday morning my laptop crashed and I lost ALL of my emails (all of them)--I was able to get it working again thankfully but I lost all my to-do emails. If you have emailed me in the past 2-3 days and I have not answered you, please shoot me an email again and I will respond ASAP---also if you've signed up for my Copic classes if you could just shoot me an email on which date you were coming I'd appreciate it. Sorry 'bout that---but hubby said he's gonna buy me a new laptop (yay) so I'll use this one for back-up only! Electronics I swear will make ya turn gray! Anywho, I'm feeling a bit better and was able to get some work done yesterday and hopefully a bunch today. I've got a few events to go to this weekend so I gotta get all my work done :o)
-Tomorrow Susana's Custom Art & Card Design releases the fabulous new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD stamps and the DT is celebrating with a fun Blog Hop!

"Dream Journey Blog Candy" HERE and ask me "What my Dream Journey" is, lol! Well I'm gonna tell ya, hee hee---I want to go to Europe soooo bad, Paris and Normandy in France (I want to see my grandfather's grave in Normandy--he died there in WWII), then visit Spain, Portugal, and Italy. It is a major dream of mine and is on my Bucket List for sure!! Then after that go spend 2 weeks in New Zealand and Australia--a girl can dream right?!! Anywho, I've had this fabulous "Paris Balloon Collage" stamp from I Brake For Stamps sitting on my desk for awhile just waiting patiently for me to use it!
HERE (use coupon code "SAVE10SUZANNE to get 10% off your whole order)! I stamped the stamp onto cream cs with PTI's Palette Ink in "enchanted evening" then added some darker highlights with my E41 copic marker. I also added stickles to the border of the image, Paris word and some of the flowers for sparkle to match the fab dp. And that dp is by DCWV "At Home" that I just found at Michaels & I LUV it (all chocolates, creams and blues)! I distressed all my edges with my Tonic Paper Distress Tool and inked the edges with distress ink. The bow has a Prima Pearl Center and then I used a new swirl punch for the swirly cut-outs.
Some layered Primas and roses which are all white/cream (see here) that I distressed and added Copics to (B37,B32). This is a great thing about buying White Flowers--I have a bin of them--you can spritz them, ink them, color them and paint them to match your projects!! And those fab lil' mini rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts in the UK--you can see them HERE (fab customer service).
And I leave you with this photo of one of my cairn terriers, Baylee:
