Happy long weekend friends! I'm so excited for this weekend. My step son and his wife and baby are coming over and they are so much fun. Willow ( the baby ) is going to be 2 on September 15th. Those of you who remember the post of the day she was born are probably thinking like me. Its been two years already?!? How? Where did time go? Last night I was in full crafty mode. This happens when the house is clean ( thanks, babe) and I don't let myself sit to watch tv ( because lets face it once you watch tv for 10 minutes the next thing you know its been two hours. Well at least in my case). Anyways I went upstairs and started my card for the Speedy Fox and Friends Sympathy challenge. I looked through all my stamps from Marks Finest Papers, A Heinrich Co. and wouldn't you know it but I don't have one sympathy stamp in them . I'm slackin! Must do order today ( like how I slide an excuse to buy stamps in there. Please try this at home kids). I figured thinking of you would work in a sympathy card because that's the reason you send one, because you are thinking of the ones in mourning. I water colored the background using SU markers and a Aqua pen on watercolor paper. I then stamped the tree from Tree Greetings using versafine ink. The shadow of the tree was done by stamping the tree in old olive ( I didn't even clean the stamp before I re inked. GASP!!) and stamping it at a angle. Do you have any sympathy stamps? You should join our challenge and you could win a stamp set! Lets face it , who doesn't need more stamps??

I love sunflowers, don't you? I couldnt wait to use these stamps for some cards for friends this week who I have been missing. The challenge for Speedy Fox And Friends was to make a card for friendship. I was so stoked. I colored this sunflower using Su markers and blender pens on watercolor paper. I then layered it and bent the petals forward for some dimention. So fun!!! I already send this card out to a friend who I have been missing lately. Hopefully she loves it! Got friends you are thinking of? Join us this week and make a friendship themed card and you just might win an awesome stamp set from Marks Finest Papers and Stamps, a Heinrich Co.

Well I made it through the fair. Lets hear a round of applause haha. Eveything went great and my dad will be home tommorow. I bough one lamb from an ffa girl and we will donate it to a local senior center. Now that im done with fair I can focus on fun stuff like stamping. The challenge this week on FOSTV is to use chalk on your card. For my card i stamped the cherry blossoms in versafine and then rubber chalk over them. I also did this with the symbols. We cant wait to see what you do with chalk and hope you play along this week!

Ive really wanted to bust out my SU markers and watercolor paper lately so this is the product of that ( and of it being 11 at night when I remembered). The challenge over at Speedy Fox and Friends is to make a card with a back to nature theme. I think a lot of people think forest when they think of nature so I wanted to do the opposite. I used my su markers and a waterbrush to watercolor the sky , mountains and sand before I stamped the animals with Versafine. I find versafine works best on the watercolor paper because its such a wet ink. I love this set called Be Wild and Free from Marks Finest Papers, A Heinrich Co. Its so cute and I love how it has more than just lions and zebras. Its awesome! If you come play along you could win an awesome stamp set from MFP too!
Well im off to bed , have to get up early tommorow ( well I guess today since this will post Saturday Morning) and go to the auction to buy some lambs. Wish me luck and cool weather. Hurry home Pa this is too much work hahah.
