Happy Memorial Day Weekend




Yuck it's raining here today...this is the day we have the big parade. It actually starts right across from my house...it's so neat seeing everyone line up...especially the little ones (dancers, brownies, cub scouts those little ones) they all want to go in different directions. They are more interested in the horses, fire engines, and those silly little Shriner's cars. I guess they will postpone it now until Monday.

Good stamping day!!! I have only made a few cards since I last posted...which actually wasn't that long ago...trying to get better. They are the same image but different color combinations. They are both for Gingersnap Creations Group. They have a lot of fun things to do and I love their challenges.


Both cards were done with Leplume Markers...I 'm sort of getting the idea of how to use markers. Everything I did before came out way to dark. I finally got the pastel colors along with several others and am learning how to combine them for a more natural look.
Last night I did for the first time in a very long time a colored pencil image. I did it with my Primsa watercolor pencils and it looked so neat I decided not to blend it just leave it as is. I will design a card this weekend and hopefully post before the end of the weekend.
