GOOD MONDAY MORNING!!
Such a busy weekend with Adventures in Stamping being in town ... granddaughter's talent show and hubby's birthday! Didn't leave time for much crafting but I do have my *Wink *Wink Ink DT creation to share with you today!
I had fun coloring & playing with this cute little "SLEEPYHEAD" image! I also used some Crafty Secrets Pastels designer paper to do paper piecing on the pillow. As well as the Crafty Secrets "Feeling Yucky" stamps for the sentiment.
I've used Prismacolor markers and Prisma pencils/gamsol for my coloring. For my borders I've used the Fiskars Apron Lace border punch and matting was accomplished using Nestabilities classic & scallop ovals. I've also used the "Out of the box with Nestabilities" technique. I just love doing this technique ... it's so easy and really gives extra dimension to your creation.
Just a reminder ... TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO PLAY THE *WINK *WINK INK CHALLENGE ... you could win not "one" ... but "THREE" *Wink *Wink Ink stamp sets! You can find all the details HERE. We will be drawing a winner tonight and making the announcement over on the *Wink *Wink Ink Blog over the next day or two.
Melanie also has a fun contest going on right now to name her latest creation which is an adorable "fishy" stamp! Be sure to pop over and check it out! You can get in on all the fun HERE.
It's going to be a busy week over at *Wink *Wink Ink ... please be sure to pop over often and get involved! Once you play with these cute images you'll be hooked ... they are so much fun to create with and the fact that you not only get the b/w to color yourself, you also get a PRE-COLORED image & a TRANSPARENT image. One to fit any creation you might be working on!!!
On a personal note ... today is my sweet husband, Mark's birthday and we are so blessed to have him cancer-free this year for his birthday! Last year he spent his birthday in Cleveland Clinic going through his transplant ... not a fun time ... but this year was a lot of fun!!
The grandkids came up and spent the day with us on Saturday and surprised him with a birthday cake & balloons! The "boys" played around with some target practice outdoors with their pellet guns while Morgan & I worked on creating & finishing her Graduation Party Invitations ... then we went for dinner and came back for cake. Here are a couple of photos to share ...
What a silly family ... between the "goofy" smile on Mark's face in the one photo and the "odd" look on Mo's face in the other ... only Jonathan looks normal!! LOL!!
It was wonderful to have the kids spend the day with us and share in "Pappy's" birthday this year!! Time goes by so quickly ... we are certainly blessed!!
