It’s Saturday and I’ve done nothing but putter around in the studio, color some images, and doodle on my scrap pads – oh I so love being lazy. Actually, I got a bug late yesterday afternoon that I needed to do a little reorganizing again. Darn these kids of mine! One of them really needs to move out, because I NEED a bigger stamping area. I have no room to add one more thing, and I so needed to get some stamps stored away. Then because I moved an old multimedia tower that I store unmounted and backgrounds in, I just had to go through some piles of paper, catalogs and magazines. In the process of going through those papers, and finding them a home, I needed to tackle one of the cabinets in the laundry room. There I have stored old SU catalogues, Cuttlebug accessories, and now my new Bind-It-All stuff. Yes, I said stuff because that is what I’m doing, stuffing it in any open spot I can find. Who knew when I built this addition to the house a few years ago that it wasn’t large enough? Well, everyone but me actually! As I wait patiently for my oldest daughter to move into her first apartment (and who knows when that’s going to be), I have resolved to myself that I cannot purchase another thing . . . . maybe.

Once again, I was up late last night and couldn’t sleep. I don’t know if it was the nap or the coffee I had after dinner, but I was wide awake and did some coloring. A few days ago someone commented on an old card in my SCS Gallery.  I went and dug it up so I could show you:


I’ve only made two cards with Thoroughly Thankful, and I was happy when it made the big catalog. Last night I was playing around with my Copic markers and different techniques for shading, and thought that it would be fun to CASE myself. I have never taken an old card from gallery and intentionally made another one just for the sake of remaking the card. Here you have it, a CASE of myself!!!

Thoroughly Thankful case

Stamps: Thoroughly Thankful and Flannel Plaid

Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Old Olive Chocolate Chip

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Old Olive, Tim Holtz Ranger Old Paper Distress Ink

Accessories: Copic Markers, May Arts Ribbon, Brads, Dauber, Scissors and Sanding Block for distressing, Mounting Tape

The image was colored with Copic Markers. I stamped the image twice, and colored the pumpkins, cut out 2 of them and mounted them on top of the image with mounting tape. The photo corner is also raised on mounting tape.
