Hey Chick

One of the perks of attending On Stage last November was I got a sneak peak at the Sale-a-bration catalog.  The Hey Chick stood out as a "yes, please."  However, I thought one phrase was left out, so today I made my own.  Take a look-

I mean how can you have that image with out that saying?!?!  If you have noticed, the Labeler Alphabet set hasn't been shelved in quite some time.  I always have believed alphabet sets give me the best bang for my buck!-especially as a scrapbooker. 

I water colored with Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder, and Tip Top Taupe.  I went to to add a scalloped circle to the vocal point when my Big Shot bit the dust.  (insert sad face. I've had it for 7 years and between my projects, and the girls' school projects it has served its time. rip) So what to do now?  I saw my in-color doilies on my desk-another reason why I have a big desk and like to have things at my finger tips.  I cut it down a bit and it was perfect.

I'll also fill you in on another secret.  I smudged in the corner.  I didn't want to reink the saying so I added a few blotches with the Grunge set.

Be sure to get in on this adorable set!  It's only available until March 31st. Ask me how you can earn it for FREE.

DSC #216:My Kind of Colors

Hello!  I'm on a roll with this blogging thing.  As a member of the DOstamper Stars, I love these challenges but I find myself using a sketch or color after the fact.  This week is a color challenges and these are by far the easiest for me.  Take a look at this color combo:


 Real Red combined with Soft Sky or Pool Party is one of my favorite combos!  I'm still enjoying playing with some puns for Valentines.  Here's what I came up with:

When I saw the Nailed It set I knew it would be mine.  With a handy husband, I knew this set would get a good workout. He actually came in my craft studio when I was creating this card and thought I should stamp the "nut" instead of the screw and change the saying to "you drive me nuts."

I ended up watercoloring with ink because I couldn't get the pencil as dark as I wanted it.  A Soft Sky heart enamel was just the right finishing touch.  I love, love those enamels!
