I have new stamps...

Don't you just love it when the post man leaves a package of stamps in your mailbox? I know I do and today was a happy day since I had a package of stamps from Sweet Pea Stamps.  Since I have been sorting through all my craft stuff and moving it and getting it organized in the new craft space, I have not been buying very much at all. But when they announced a sale on the Sweet Pea blog the other day, I had to do a little bit of shopping! This card was made last week, but you know I am going to get those new images inky soon! This is Enchanted Blue from the Ching-Chou Kuik's Fantasy Art collection. I colored her with Copic markers and then used papers from DCWV and flowers that my friend Angela gave me. These images intimidated me a little when I first saw them, but they are just so much fun to color. I love all the details on these images. Another thing I like about these is that by changing the color choices it can make them look so very different.

Thanks for stopping in and visiting. The other day, I learned about the invisible illness awareness week and wanted to do my little part to raise awareness about this issue, especially as it relates to me and the chronic pain issues I have. If you are interested in reading my blog post about the issue you can find it here. I do warn you it is a little long! I normally don't get quite this personal, but wanted to get the word out.


You still have time to participate in the Shirley's 2 Girls Critter Blog Hop. To see all the stops along the way, start here on the challenge blog. Leave comments along the way, including on the challenge blog for a chance o win some great prizes!
