Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday to you all! I hope you had a fabulous weekend--the weather here was beautiful and I took the day off on Sunday to really enjoy it. I took a book and magazine outside, sat in the sun and just read the day away--it was FABULOUS!! Today and yesterday though--the weather is kinda icky, gray and raining but the weekend is supposed to be good. The grayness affects my mojo I think, I don't get as much done when it's yucky out--it sucks the energy outta me, lol!
I did do some organizing in my craft room which is always good--after I work for days & hours on end my room tends to look like a major hurricane has struck it, lol! I ordered these fabulous glass penny candy jars online to hold and organize all my paper flowers---I got eight of them, but I need 2 more cuz' I have some overflow, lol! You can see the photos below, but I got them for $10 a pc online and I love them! They sit on my black hutch that sits across from my desk--I love the organization and the pretty colors staring back at me! Also below is a pic of my new flatscreen tv and printer which were Mom's Day Gifts that I'm loving--I love that they are black and match my room, lol!
-7 Kids College Fund has some new goodies in stock that you might want to see! New Penny Black cutie-pie stamps here, NEW Cosmo Cricket paper pads here (Delovely is sooo mine) and NEW Sizzix Impression Plates here.
-Thanks to everyone who pre-registered for Class 4 at the Color Me Creative Classroom--$3 from every Class 4 pre-registration went to the Unicef fund, along with my contribution and Susana's contribution. So the total was $340 which I'm very thrilled with and the receipt for the donation is below! If you want to take Class 4 it is up and ready and ongoing--see the deets here!
A Love Rose--err Pansy!!
I Brake For Stamps!
"Small Love Rose Post" but I think it looks more like a pansy so that's the way I colored it, lol! (this comes in a larger image as well) Remember if you buy anything from I Brake For Stamps use the coupon code "SAVE10SUZANNE" to receive 10% off your entire order!! I love that pansy have cute faces and the purple and yellow ones are my fave, so I colored this up to match (V17,V15,V12,Y000,Y11,Y23). The dp is from Kaisercraft's "Lilac Avenue" paired with PTI cs. I used a beautiful die from Marianne D (I get mine HERE from Bunny-Zoe's store overseas)--these dies are so detailed and lovley, you use them just like a nestie. I took two of them and stacked them on top to create this lovely pendant look in black behind the image.
It's hard to tell here, but I put diamond glaze on top of the petals and then stickles around the stamp image and in the center for some bling! Maybe next time I'll color it up like a rose, maybe not, hee hee!
See ya back here tomorrow!
