Much stamping this day!

1. Card to the Pediatric dentist who we had the pleasure of seeing one day a week for three weeks... The dentist and staff were wonderful. So this one is to them and made another to the pediatric anesthesiologist, who we had the pleasure of having join my daughter's care yesterday morning at oh-dark-thirty. (we were up at 5:15am to leave the house by 6am to be at their office by 7am.) Thank God it was a textbook appointment this time.

2. Inside of the card with a stamped smiley tooth. You just never know when you're going to need these types of stamps. :)

3a. This is a sympathy card for an online friend.

3b. Close up. Did a double stamp and it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.

4. Thank you card to a lady in Liverpool, who sent me a bunch of information on what to do and where to go while we are there visiting.

5. Same stamp (just bought it the other day)...

6. And one more using the same stamp and AI background.

7. Birthday Mickey style...

8. Used my Tamp-a-tiles and a great saying. Know anyone who needs this card? :)

Fun stuff...

I am going to a Drawing class one day a week at the technical high school and finding it fun. I took private lessons when I was 13 or so and hoping this class now will refresh my memory on some tips and such... Along with getting me back into the groove to do some drawing. This time around, I'm using charcoals vs. pencils, so it's really cool to see the differences of them.

1. I would have normally colored in the entire coffee cup one color and not worried or thought about light reflecting off of it -- but here you can see the shading really makes it appear more 3-D.

Also... I wanted to make some "coffee cup ring stains" but didn't have a stamp like it. So I looked around my studio and found an old jelly jar that I use to hold a tube of glue. Inked up the lip (top of the jar) on a brown ink pad and directly applied the inked up jar to my paper. Love the look and hubby thought "great detail". :)

2. and 3. Birthday tulips with an overlay of vellum...

4. Birthday with a red glittery dress... Can it get any better?

5. Close up -- I love super fine glitter.

6. Inside of the card -- new to me stamp. How fabulous to make someone feel
