It's a stamping day!

Since I get to do some stamping today I thought I should do some blogging as well!

When I've had a chance to stamp lately I haven't known where to start or what to make so I thought I'd play with some of the images I got just before Christmas and didn't have much time for then.
This snowman image is from Cornish Heritage Farms, I colored it with Copic markers, the carrot nose is a Copic Spica glitter marker, the snow flake paper I printed, it's from MFT's digital paper. I sponged the edges with SU Bliss Blue ink and the dark layers are Nut Brown and the blue paper is Sky Blue light from Thepapermill.com. Chocolate brown grossgrain ribbon for a finishing touch. This sketch is originally from Bad Sherry, I've totally enjoyed using it over and over or lots of different looks!

My kids are out of school and we're on the run with swim lessons, afternoon free swims and Vacation Bible School this week. Next week they are still swimming but going to visit Grandma & Grandpa for the holiday weekend and very excited.

My stamp room/kitchen is still in a state of limbo so I'm not stamping very much, I'm so ready to be organized again and engrossed in what I love to do. I have my part of the job finished, now all I can do is wait. I decided last week I'd try to do some stamping again regardless of the mess and having to dig through boxes to find what I'd like to use.

I have some new Verve stamps to play with today, I'm excited! Have a great day!

That snowman is so cute. We don't get snow where I am so they are not something I normally stamp, but I always love what other people do with them.
