Hey Faithful Readers! (or, is that "Reader"??)

I am really trying to ink up some of these delightful stamps that I have here, before my big box of TAC goodies gets here! You know, to minimize some of the guilt :)

This card features 3 stamps from Eat Cake Graphics. This & A Muse are two of my favorite companies...Honestly, if money were no object, I would truly own everything from both of these companies. The stamps used are Lilly Puddlesworth, Ryan Relaxes and Little Phillip's Ready for the Water. Hubby was trying to help me come up with a good quote for the inside...We could go with something sweet like, "We Miss you when you are not here...".

But, we are really thinking that Little Phillip is waiting to talk about Ryan, as soon as he floats away. Perhaps he is suffering from his Momma stuck him with the plain innertube...when everyone knows that the Spotted-Floaty-Critter is da bomb!!

Lemme know what you think...What does this card say to you?

I'm Back.

Sorry to all of my faithful readers {and, Karen, you know who you are :oP } I just was so overwhelmed between Logan hitting the big 3, potty training, working, and having Zach in 8th grade...that I really just have been horrible about posting.

I will really be better about it. I promise. I will try. I hope.

I have even been bad with my stamping....I have soooo much untouched "rubba" that I got from joining The Angel Company. They are such gorgeous stamps, that I really should be ashamed. Soooo, I have finally challenged myself to get using the pretties!!!!

Here are two cards that I have made this weekend. They both have used bleach to get the white color. Both the Tiger Face & Gerbera Daisy were stamped and embossed in black. Then I broke out the bleach pen. I have done it before with straigh bleach, and a paint brush -- and got the results much faster...but, I am out of plain bleach -- so I am working with what I have.

I used my SU! watercolor crayons and an aquapainter to color the green of the leaves and stem. The blue paper look a little wonky in the picture, with the added dimention of the brads, the paper is scanning a little goofy.

by the way -- the new TAC catty is coming soon!!! Drop me an email at, if you would like to order one for you!! Thanks!!
