Smiley from Happy Thursday!  Yesterday some of you left comments and sent me emails about the blender pencil for the Prismacolor Pencils.  Thank you Alexandra for this great tip:

Someone asked about a blending pencil in the comments, a wee tip, if you don’t mind me saying is, if you don’t have a blending pencil, which is a colourless wax pencil, as long as the coloured pencils you use are waxy, you can use a light coloured pencil and blend over to create another colour a bit like mixing paint i.e. use yellow then blue meeting together, overlapping softly, then going over with yellow again result is where they cross over it creates a third colour, in this case a rich green, or use a white pencil to blend and you’ll get a softer green. You can change the colour and blend easily depending on how much of a particular colour you use.

All this week on the Graphic 45 Blog they have been showing projects created by the Graphic 45 Designers using Fiskars products.  I have a card today . . .


but you’ll need to hop over to the Graphic 45 Blog to get the product information.  You will also want to catch Jack and Cats video . . . it’s fabulous!

For today, that’s all I have!

Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, embrace the adventures that come you way!


Hey y’all!  I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty tired of all this rain.  I was curled up on the bed this afternoon with one pup lying on my pillow and the other under the bed.   Neither of them like thunderstorms!

Yesterday I started a card that I’ve been wanting to do forever.  It’s actually a remake of one I’ve made a couple of times . . . . I guess you could say I cased myself.  How many of you remember this card?


AND then there was this remake for the SCS Dirty Dozen Gallery . . .


For the last few years I’ve been wondering how Ethel would look with all the little peckers.  Well, with the recent release of Spring Inchies by Rubbernecker Stamps I finally had the perfect little birds.  I have to say that I quite like Ethel and her little peckers!

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  I have Stamp Club tomorrow and then have to meet with mom to talk about Kate’s graduation party.  Thanks for stopping by!
