Whimsy Stamps challenge

YAY, It's MONDAY!!! That means 2 things!
Whimsy Stamps Challenge

This is the Whimsy Stamps Skunk. I love his lil smirk. He is colored with Copic markers. I also added some polar white Flower Soft to his white stripe. It looks really cool in person. The paper is from Basic Grey.

The second reason to be excited that it is Monday is...

Haven't fallen off the side of the earth....

I have been dealing with some complications from a previous surgery. I have been on IV fluids and am heading back to the mainland for an appointment with my surgeon. Please keep me in your thoughts.

I haven't picked up a stamp or colored anything in over a week... *sigh* I miss it terribly.

It is the 16th... and that means.... NEW DIGIS!!!!!

Today is a NEW RELEASE for Victoria Case Digistamps!!!

I have a 'few' favorites!

Here is VAMP...


Cupcake Boy

I am really enjoying my airbrush with my copic markers. I'm really starting to get the hang of it now. I need to get some of the eclipse mask tape. The sentiment on the Vamp card is from a set from Our Craft Lounge. It is the perfect set for all you Twilight fans.

You also still have time to join the VC Stamp Challenge this week for a chance to win the newest of Victoria's rubber stamps - MOON WITCH!!! The challenge this week is fall colors... oranges, reds and browns.

Also, stop by Victoria's blog and grab the freebie image she did for PAIGE. I am finishing up my card for Paige today.

Happy Monday!

I love Mondays.. yep, I said it, I LOVE MONDAYS. It is my quiet day to myself. Kids are at school, Hubs is at work, and I get the day to myself...

Mondays are also The DigiShack Manic Monday Freebie Fundays... so you better go get your free image. It is a neat one this week. I'll be posting a card with it later this afternoon. (camera battery died)

Mondays are the Whimsy Stamps Challenge day as well. This week our challenge is Fall Colors. I used this paper from Cosmo Cricket and paper pieced Emma. The sentiment is from Unity Stamps.

Well, my BFF left on Friday and after a wonderful visit I miss her terribly. We had a great time and it was like she never had moved away. Fingers are crossed that they'll get stationed close by next summer!!

The DigiShack is sponsoring this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday’s challenge.

Here is my card...

Victoria Case Stamp Challenge #16

Our Victoria Case Challenge this week is a color challenge - inspired by Fall.


I used Just Ducky. This makes me giggle!!!

Spread the word, join us, and don't forget to check out the blog for more inspiration from the design team and our guest designers.

New Digitals from Victoria Case

Victoria has a new set of digitals now available. I just had to have this one. It totally reminded me of my youngest, Maddie... right down to the bandaid on the knee! When Maddie rides her bike, there is NO FEAR she just goes for it!

Victoria released a bunch of new digital stamps and they are CUTE!!!!! I may have to go back and get more. Which one is your favorite? I'm not so patiently waiting on her new rubber stamps too. She always has something clever up her sleeves.
