Nap Time = Play Time

Well I have been fortunate the past 2 days and been able to get into my craft room while my littlest guy is taking his nap :) I decided to use last night's playtime to practice my coloring with my prisma colored pencils. This has been quite a fear of mine because everyone in the crafty world is so good at it. Well like everything you get better with practice.....I'd love to hear what you think of my attempts. I wish we had better lighting today but it is snowing and overcast.

Lookin' Good
I used a Motivet stamp that I purchased about 6 months ago at a LSS. How could I resist her with my affection for squirrels? I think she is just adorable. The dp on this is all from my scrap bin but I do believe the pink dot is from Bo-bunny and the green pattern is MME. My sentiment stamp and hearts are from Unity Stamp Co. And the bling is from Kiaser. I added some Stickles to her fur and the snow to make it look a bit frosty.

This second card I made yesterday while Ethan was napping. I'm on a mission to use stamps from my stash that may not really be Valentine's and make them so.

Chicken Love
I used Art Impressions rubber stamps on this fun card. I am in love with the chicken wire background! This fun chicken would work well for many types of cards. I can see him used on "under the weather" cards, 21st Birthday cards, and "Thinking of You" cards. I really liked how he turned out on my Valentines day card though. I colored him using Copic markers (which I'm not so good at using). And again my dp is from my scrap stash. I'm pretty sure it is by October Afternoon though. My sentiment stamp is from the Angel Co.

Now for one last thing today. I have to show you folks what I have been obsessing about here at home for days! I found this through my friend Allie Gower over at www.welltrainedpaper.blogspot.com .  She informed me that it is from Stampers Storage. I can't wait to get one for myself, I have the go ahead after payday at the end of the month. This is going to look so nice in my craftroom! Eeeek! Go check them out and tell them that Allie and I sent you over! It retails for $90 and holds 60 ink pads and 60 markers.
