Tulips in Winter

                                                 Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Flowers
It's cold and rainy outside but it feels like spring in my studio.  I couldn't wait to open the box of these Altenew tulip stamps and new ink colors!  I just spent the evening experimenting with the different color combinations.

This is why I make cards!

                                                            Happy Valentines Day!

Hey, Chick! Valentine

I have an appointment for a haircut, actually "the works"  with highlight and cut tomorrow on Valentines Day.
I thought this Stampin Up chick would be the perfect valentine for my hairdresser who has become a wonderful friend.   (I hope my highlight isn't quite as colorful.)

Panama Canal Scrapbook

Vacation scrapbooks need to be done RIGHT AWAY!  It's when you best remember the details of your trip.  It's also when everyone is most interested in seeing your vacation scrapbook.  I'm anxious to share this with my travel companions.

New Altenew Ink Pads

                 Twelve new Altenew ink pads!  I've left space for a couple more releases too!

We were on a 15 day cruise through the Panama Canal. It was a fabulous trip with 12 friends who were sharing the experience with us.  Then at lease 9 of us got sick with respiratory illnesses as soon as we got home!

But I'm well and have my new ink pads.  I'm ready to stamp some layered colorful flowers like the ones we saw in Central America!
