Your Love Rocks my World!!!!

Your Love Rocks my World!!!!!
Hi Everyone!!!!
.......
How are you all doing????
This is my 2nd post today and there will be at least one more so be sure to see them all!!! I am on a roll today!!!!
.......
Well I got the card done from the images in the post below!!! Anya and Ian are colored with my copics, on SU paper, I used my Labels 1 Nestibilities from Spellbinders (or Nesties). I diagonalized my nestie, and cut out a striped Dark Pink and lighter pink Patterned paper, then I put it on top of another DSP with lots of squares in many colors. I love this pattern and I have it in several different color schemes because I got it in one of those big packs of paper, but I am afraid I will never be able to find anything like it once I use all of it!!!!!
......
So here is the question of the Day. Do you color your images and then choose your paper, or do you choose your paper and then color your images???? I find it helpful to have images already colored and then when I am ready to make a card I go pick out papers to match my image. However I have friends who do it both ways so what do you do??? Like I said before I have been buying paper here and there for 9 years when it was on sale or if I was in a store and found some I liked so I have thousands of pieces to choose from, so I can normally find something to match my coloring. Plus being an SU Demo I have almost every SU color in stock in my Scrapping Room so I can pull what I want, but I want to know what everyone else does???
.......
.......
So Below are Anya and Ian together on the Label 1 nestie. I think they look so cute together!!!! Rockin around. My good friend Emily from here in town made a cool Rockin Ian card you have to go check it out here Emily's Rocking Ian Card. Emily has such a shabby Chic Style her cards are all very unique, and she just got her Copics this week and this was her first card with her Copics so she came over and stamped up a bunch of Anya's and Ian's to play around with!!!
.......
Here is the Shimmerized View of Anya she has Burgundy Shimmerz on her Guitar, and Red parts of her hair.
.......
Well I better go and design more cards for the upcoming workshops, oh and also do some cleaning too!!! I want a self cleaning house!!!!!
.......
Heather

What Do You Think????

Hi Everyone,
.......
Well I am in the process of making this card to share with everyone in a little while, and I wanted to see what your oppinion is???
.......
I colored these images up on both SU Whisper White CS, and Nina White CS that Janna sent me and I wanted to know if you think one is better than the other???? .......

The Top image is on SU! Paper and the bottom image is on Nina Paper.

I messed up on the lips on one of them, but did not want to start all over!!!

.......

I colored them the same except on the Anya on the SU paper my R00 Copic ran out, which I am pretty disappointed about since I have only been using it for about 10 days!!!! Anyway so the other Anya and Ians only have E00, E51, and E95 for their face coloring and the first Anya has R00, E00, and E95 for her coloring.
.......

This one I am not sure is a fair example because even though they were side by side the light was shining differently on the SU paper then the Nina, but anyway SU left Nina right.

.......

Well I better not make this to long or I will not be able to get the card done and up for you to see in a little while!!! LOL!!!! Let me know which one you like better. Card to be up in a little while!!

A Lily and Billy Valentine Challenge

Riding to the Valentine Tree
.......
Hello All,
.......
I think I am about to give up on my days of getting a second post in. I used to be able to, but things seem so busy right now I can not get back for that second post. Which is O.K., but sometimes I have a second project I want to share with you!!!! LOL.
......
So my good friend Janna Hull of the Pink Cat Studio DT is hosting the first DT challenge of the new team and I wanted to play along. You should to if you own any Pink Cat Stamps because there is a prize for this one. You can see the Challenge rules and such here on the Pink Cat Studio Group on the Paper Craft Planet.
.......
Janna's Challenge was to create a Pink Cat Studio Project that spells out LOVE somewhere in the Project or card.
........
So with my card I decided to do this for the LOVE acronym.
.......
L - Limitless Limbs Set, Lilly, and Lace
.......
O - The shape of O in the Wheels of the Bike Lilly and Billy are riding on.
.......
V - The Valentines Tree Lilly and Billy are riding up the Hill to get to.
.......
E - I joked with Janna that E was going to stand for my Entry into the Challenge, but she told me that did not qualify, so E stands for the Eyelet Lace Punch I used to punch the edges of the pink matte layer.
....... So Here is my Challenge Card for the DT Challenge. I wanted to use my new Pink Cat Studio set Lily and Billy Sweetheart set. I love Lily and Billy and all the wonderful things Melissa does with them!!!! So I choose Lily and Billy on the Bike I love Billy giving Lily a ride in the basket it is just too cute!!!!

.......

I took some post it notes and tore them into the shape of a hill, then took some sponge daubers and Close to Co Co and Chocolate Chip SU ink to make the hill, then I took 5 different colors of my Copics to create the grass and layered and layered it until I got the look I wanted. I am not sure on the grass at first I was leaving it in patches because the hill is brown, but then it ended up being on the whole Hill what do you think????

.......

I got out My limitless Limbs PCS set and stamped the flourishes tree, and then stamped 4 of the Valentines Lily and Billy are holding in the new sweetheart set on the limbs, and then I used the two hearts from the Limitless Limbs set to make the rest of the hearts on the tree. I colored and stamped the hearts using my Real Red, Passion Pink, and Pixie Pink SU markers and my Basic Black marker. I also used my SU Glorious Green marker to make the stems of the hearts on the tree.

....... I drew the sky with two of my Blue Copic shades to make the sky the different colors you see. Lastly I took some white Puffy paint and embossed it to make the puffy white clouds in the sky. Below you can see my clouds

.......

.......

.......

I guess I better go get ready we have an appointment at 6 pm to re-close on our house since the interest rate dropped over 1%, and I am taking a friend out to Dinner for her Birthday we are going to a really nice sit down restaurant with candles and the waiter dress up and they treat you like royalty so it should be nice and a quiet dinner where we can actually talk without a million interruptions!!! LOL!

We will be adding 3 new Team members next week and one of them is playing along this week so go to Danni's Blog to see the new Featured Stampers on the Team!!!!! I need to get their blog addresses and add them to my list soon!!!!
.......
So here is my Card for this week. Danni sent me these super cute and elegant Flutter By stamps last week so I had to use them on my card for this week!!!
.......
I wanted to make a card with Yellow and Orange in it because I saw a special on PBS about the life of Monarch Butter Fly's and I wanted to create as close of one as I could. Not sure how I did what do you think??
.......
Card Recipe:
.......
Stamps: Flutter By's from Danni (not sure of the names or origin's) SU's set Flight of the Butter Fly for the Flutter By background on the Orange and Yellow CS.
Inks: Believe it or not no Copics today. I used SU Basic Black, Only Orange, Yo Yo Yellow, Summer Sun, and Really Rust Markers for the images. For the Flutter By background I used my new Champagne Versa Mark Dazzle, and it really adds some shimmer and shine to the card!!! Love me my glitter!!!!!
Papers: SU CS in Whisper White, Only Orange, Summer Sun, Yo Yo Yellow, and Tangerine Tango.
Accessories: SU Punches in Circles 1 1/4" and 1 3/8", I used an UID elegant corner rounder as well, and my Scallop Square Nesties for the large Flutter By, and the Matte around it in Orange. I also loosely followed Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesdays Sketch challenge as well.
.......

Above you can see my Flutter By Image, not sure it really looks like a Monarch, but I tried!!!! LOL!!!! This image stamps up so pretty I am so glad Danni sent it to me to use!!! I wish you could see the glitter sparkle that Vers Mark Dazzle gives the images you stamp it with!!!!

.......

Princess Anya - a Sketch for Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesdays Challenge

My Twinkling Shimmerized Princess
Hello Everyone,
.......
Well today is Tuesday and we all know what that means a Twinkling Tuesday Sketch Challenge from the very talented 8 year old Madelynn!!!!!
.......
I can not get over how great this little girl is with her sketches!!!! When I saw this one I just went OH My!!!!! It was sooo cool, yet just a tiny bit daunting!!!!! I knew it would be so much fun to do though, and I have been telling you how I have all these Anya's and Ian's already colored up and ready to put to paper so I got out my Shimmerized Princess Anya and picked out some pretty pink papers and went to work!!!!!
.......
Here is Madelynn's Sketch for this week, I really thought it was so much fun you have to play along when you have a moment!!!!
.......
Here is the Card I came up with for my Anya Twinkling Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I used the pretty Pink Polka Dotted Paper. The think layer behind that is a double sided Card stock that is very light pink on one side and a little darker pink on the other side. You can also see that in the folded down corners on the middle layer it shows one side of the paper and then folded down the other side of the paper.
.......
I adore that pink swirly paper I have been wanting to use it for a long time now!!!!
.......
So for my two double layered circles on the sketch I added the two pearl and silver buttons and for my square or rectangle that is what I mounted Anya on.
.......
Card Recipe:
.......
Papers: SU CS in Pink Passion, Whisper White, and 3 UID DSP's.
Inks: Momento Black Tuxedo Ink, Copics in
RV00, RV04, RV09, Y00, Y04, Y06, E00, R00, E51, E95
Stamps: Princess Anya from The Greeting Farm
Accessories: Crop-a-Dile, White Brads from Paper Studio, Bubble Gum and Burgundy Shimmerz, (Painted on the Eye Shadow, Star, Crown, and Light Pinks of Anya's Gown. SU Corner Rounder Heart Punch. Two Pearl and Silver Buttons from a Huge Bag-O-Buttons from Hobby Lobby.
.......
.......
I am so sad you can not see the Shimmerz as well as I usually can get it to show up, but I did get it to show some. I usually turn my card a bit more with my hand into the light to get the real good shimmerz view, but my Camera Batteries are going dead and I only had like two seconds to get these pictures. The Shimmerz really makes her Eye Shadow and Eye's so pretty though!!!
.......
.......
Well I really hope you enjoyed my cards I think this one is one of my favorites in a while!!! Funny I used to never be a Pink Girl, but I am now I really am starting to like it!!! I think it took having daughters to start liking Pink a lot more!!!! LOL. Hop over to the ever talented - Jessica's Blog The Whimsical Butterfly. To see the sketch and all the DT girls samples!!
.......
I hope you are having a Stampendous Tuesday or is that a Twinkling Tuesday???? Hmmm???

Stamper's Club Project #2 A Snowy Scene in a Globe

A Snow Globe Winter Scene!
Hello,
.......
Well I guess I inadvertently took the weekend off from blogging, I did not plan to, but that is how it worked out.
.......
Saturday I thought I would post this card, but my friend Janna kept me on the phone for hours and I tried and tried to get off the phone with her to no avail, (LOL!!!) then we had a Birthday party for my Nephew which is an hour away so 2 hours of driving, and we were at the party for 4 hours so by the time I got home it was rush like crazy to get the kids situated, in bed, run to the store to pick up some stuff for club finish getting all the stuff ready for Stamper's Club and then (Oh yeah insert messing with the fish tank and fish for 2 hours again because the levels were all at Danger levels again even though I had spent 5 hours on Thursday trying to make everything better, but Sigh we have not even had the fish for 2 weeks and I am sort of regretting it, not totally because the kids love them, and they are fun to watch, but it has added hours and hours, and hours onto Mommy's schedule and I just do not have those hours to give right now!!!! LOL. Well if the tank would just work the way it is supposed to and the levels would not go into danger zone every couple of days it would not be such a hassle. This time 1 more fish did not survive, maybe God just wants this to be a very, very memorable experience for me!!! LOL!!!!!
.......
So anyway I did not get this posted until today because Sunday it was Church then Stamper's Club, then helping my friend order her copics and then it was 11pm and I had to go to bed so Here is my card finally!!!
.......
.......
The Winter Scene, and the Snow flakes are all stamped in the new Versa Mark Dazzle (Champagne shade). If you do not have any of this new Versa Mark you have to get some it adds so much sparkle and well Dazzle to your paper!!!! You can sort of see the sparkle if you look at the top of the card!!! SU Card stock in Whisper White, Brocade Blue, and Bashful Blue were used for this card.
.......
We stamped the House scene on Bashful Blue Paper, and then punched it out with the larges SU circle punch 1 5/8" circle. The bottom of the Globe is punched out with the SU round tab punch on SU's Shimmery Silver Metallic Paper. The White Snow is Puffy Paint, for club I had them draw in all the snow with a White Gel Pen and it looked pretty cool, but I realized today some one went home with my sample so I had to make a new one to blog with, and so I ended up using Puffy Paint this time. I think both techniques work well!!!
.......
We cut out the Top note with the Big Shot, and distressed the edges with Brocade Blue ink, and embossed it with the Big Shot and the Cuttle Bug D'vine Swirls embossing folder. We used glue dots to glue the Blue part of the globe onto the silver base and Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the whole globe to the top note. We used Bashful Blue and Brocade Blue SU 1/4" gross grain ribbon for the bow. Then we adheased the Top not to the rest of the card using excess rubber and foam.
........
Well I now have to run and get all the designing I did not get done last week done this week. I have so many cards to make in the next couple of days it is not funny!!!! But hey all the more Eye Candy for you to see!!!! Yea!!!!
.......
Have a Stampendous Day!!!!!

Some Amazing things I got this week!!! 3 wonderful Crafters too!!!!

Hi All,
.......
Well I received some amazing RAK's this week and I had to show you!!!!
.....
The first one was this box full of lovely German Chocolates and candies, and some wonderful images to color in and make cards with too!!!!! It came from my good blogging friend Regina from Germany.

Thank You Regina way to many of those chocolates and all of the Gummy Bears are gone now!!! I adore Gummy Bears how did you know??? My kiddo's loved them too!!!! You are so thoughtful and sweet Regina and your comments mean so much to me!!! You were one of my very first followers and commenters and I will always treasure that!!!!! Thank You for being my Friend!!!!!

.......

The other 2 came today. The first one I knew was coming, but had no idea how incredibly wonderful the cards in it would be. It was from my now totally good and close friend Janna Hull. Janna from Stamps Paper and Glitter Oh My Blog, and I are now addicted to talking to each other on the phone about stamping and stuff!!! I love this girl she is so great to talk to and I feel lost if I do not talk to her now!!! So glad I met you Janna!!!!! Hey Janna look what color I made your link in!!!!!! LOL!!! Janna also sent me a good amount of Nina Card Stock so I could try it out and see what kind of white I like best for coloring with my Copics on!

The Card Janna made for Willow above. Willow loves reading books, and she loves, loves, loves, Yellow!!!!!

.......

The Card Janna made for Piper. Piper got a black eye due to the swing set a little bit ago, and her very favorite color is Purple!!!!

.......
Janna made these cards for my 2 daughters Piper (whose favorite color is Purple, and Willow whose favorite color is Yellow!) These cards are drop dead gorgeous!!!! My girls were in love with them at first site, and they will not let them out of their site. They both sat down tonight to make Janna cards (their idea) Piper used her "Piper" stamps (Sarah Kaye, but she thinks they are Piper stamps cause I could not find any Piper stamps!!!), and Willow used her Whiff of Joy "Willow" stamps she got for Christmas and both girls also made her a card of their own design too!!!! Thank You sooooooo much Janna and I will love these images!!!!!

......

The last RAK was from my new blogging friend Danni from Danni's Dreams Blog and who I am honored to be on her Featured Stamper Team for Flutter By Wednesdays!!!!
.......
Danni sent me this beautiful card using my favorite Shimmerz and this lovely fairy, whe also painted the up parts of the Cuttled background with shimmerz and it is so so pretty of a card!!!
She sent along to Flutter By stamps along with the Card too!!!! Wooooo Hoooo can always use more stamps anytime!!!!! Thank you soooo sooooo much for the stamps and the Card Danni You ROCK girl!!!!

A Valentines Day Snow Globe 1st Sneak Peak of SU Stampers Club Project for this weekend!

"Will You Be My Valentine???"
Hello,
.......
I could go on for hours and hours about my day today, but let me just tell you I spent almost 5 hours saving the lives or our new Fish!!!! Oh My word what a day!!!!!
.......
They are all fine now and we only had 2 out of 10 die yesterday, but I was trying to keep a very sweet 4 year old from having her heart broken!!!!
.......
So needless to say the day was pretty much shot and I had so much stuff House and Stamping wise that needed done!!!! I am so far behind, but I did get this 1st Project for stampers club this Sunday done. I know what the other two are going to be it is just getting them designed and cut for and the sample put together that needs done, and the other 9 projects I wanted to be done by Sunday may have to be later next week.
.......
O.K. I know you are probably tired of hearing about my day and want to see the Eye Candy right????
......
So my theme for Stampers Club this month is Snow Globes. I wanted at least one of the projects to be Valentines Day themed as we will not be meeting again until after Valentines day. Now to my friend Jami Bova you are going to laugh when you see this card because I sort of cased the Christmas Card you sent me and changed it around and used different images, but you will recognize it I am sure!!!
.......
I always try to make my Monthly Stampers Club project cute and creative, yet doable so that 10 ladies can get 3 different projects done in our allotted 2 - 2 1/2 hours of club time. I think this one is doable, but one of our other projects is pretty involved so I am hoping we can get them all done on time!!!! I will share that project tomorrow or Friday!!!!
.......
So Here is the first Card.
.......
I used the SU Round Tab punch for the top of the Snow Globe, and I actually added some ribbon up there after taking these pictures it added a lot to the card. I used an old SU corner punch I picked up at a Garage Sale for $4
.......
(Now every time I talk about picking stuff up from a Garage Sale it is the same one I am talking about every time. I have only been to one, but I picked up a million great SU finds there!!!)
.......
I drew a diagonal line across the corner punch and cut it off then snipped the edges off to leave the heart open like it is and then glued onto the corners with Glue Dots. The Large White Circle was cut out with my coluzzel, and the scalloped circle was cut with my Nesties. I first stamped the images onto Whisper White Paper inside the nestie sitting on my paper to get the right placement. Then I took the nestie off the paper and colored in my images.
.......
I choose this retired SU Valentines Day set for our 1st Card this time. I usually use current SU sets, but this time this set was toooo cute to pass up!!!!
.......
I could not decide which was more work coloring in the white background, or cutting out the images and gluing them onto a colored paper background. I ended up deciding it would be less work coloring in the white background. I actually did it all with my BG00 Copic, but I will have my SU Girls do it with chalks or Aqua Painters and ink - that will use much less ink up!!!!
.......
.......
The Boy and girl were colored with:
.......
SU Markers: Summer Sun, Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black.
Copics: B00, B02, B08
R00, E00, E95
RV00, RV04, RV09
B100,
E00, E51, E95
Red I can not remember the colors
Yoo, Y02, Yo4, Y08
I colored in the falling snow with my SU White Gel Pen, and I made the puffy snow with White Puffy Paint Heat set with my Embossing Gun. (I am always on the phone with my good friend Janna Hull when I do Puffy paint not sure why???)
.......
Here you can see the puffy paint better it is so much fun to watch it get taller and taller!!!!
.......
I glued the scalloped layer onto the white layer which I had already distressed the edges with a Kitchen Knife (one of these days I will get me that SU distressing tool!!!)
I then adhered the White layer onto the SU Regal Rose Card Back with excess rubber and foam from my stamps to really pop that layer up. I also glued the Round tab punch folded in half to the White layer. I drew the white lines on with my white gel pen again.
.......
.......
I guess that is about it for this project!
.......
Have a Stampendous Night and I will be back tomorrow during the day (Friday)

Oh I thought I would add a quick picture of Jami's totally awesome Christmas Card she sent me. Now I had choosen Snow Globes for our theme for this month about 6 months ago so I already had planned to do 3 snow globe projects, but when Jami's card came I knew I wanted to case a few of her wonderful ideas for our Snow Glob Stampers Club!!!!!!

Hello - Ian! Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday's Challenge - Card

Hello Mr. Ian!!!!
Hi There!!!!
.......
This is my 2nd post today so read below for my Flutter By Wednesday Card.
.......
Now before I even go anywhere with this post I have to tell you as I was on the phone with Janna this morning she pulled up my blog to the Lily and Billy Butter Fly Huntin card and said Oh My Heather you did a wonderful job on your Twinkling Tuesday Sketch. Well I had not really made that card for the sketch, but I made it after this card I did make for the sketch so they actually do work for the sketch.
.......
So Any Hoo I guess I have 2 Cards for this weeks Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday Sketch Challenge!!! If you click on the Sketch I have it linked to The Whimsical Butterfly Blog that will take you to Madelynn's weekly sketch and you can see her Mommy's very talented work, and you can see the other DT Samples for the week. This weeks featured Twinkling Girl is my friend Danni who does the Flutter By challenges.
.......

I just love Hello Ian!!! He is so sweet and gentle it seems, with maybe a little mischief behind that bent head??? I choose two DSP's that coordinated and then the piece of ribbon was just sitting on my workspace from a card I did that week and Wowza could that ribbon not be more perfect for this card???? It is double sided and both sides meet the colors of the whole card!!! It was a pure mistake perfect find that is for sure!!!! I first colored up Ian and then went looking for paper, and this is what my fingers found!!!

.......

Here is a close up of Just Ian with his pretty yellow flower he is soooo cute is he not??? I love The Greeting Farm Stamps now I am hooked!!! Thanks Jessica!!!!

........

I choose SU Certainly Celery, and Bashful Blue for the CS colors and then the Ribbon and the Papers are UID I know the papers came in one of those huge paper packs I get when they are 50% off. I have been buying Paper for 10 years now here and there when it is on sale and I counted it all and organized it in 12 categories a while back and I have over 2,000 pieces of 12 x 12 CS, and 3,000 pieces of DSP. This is not including all my SU Paper because that was before I started SU so add another couple of thousand to that. However I am finding making all these cards you can go through paper pretty darn fast so I am glad I have it all!!!!

.......

So Here are two final views of the 2 cards I made that work with Madelynn's sketch this week I hope you play along too it is so much fun to do!!!!!

.......

Well one Scheduled post left later today!!! I hope you are having a Stampendous Wednesday. We have a hugely busy night ahead of us and Hubby is out of town again, so Yea!!!!!

Gone Butterfly Catching with Lily and Billy - Flutterby Wednesday's Card

"Flutter By Hunt'in"
Good Morning All,
.......
Well today is Flutter By Wednesdays Challenge again. Remember that Danni is offering up some really cute blog candy at the end of the month and all you have to do it make a Flutter By card and post a link for your card on her blog (and our blogs if you want to). If you upload to SCS or PCP don't forget to use Key Word FBW41 so we can find your great cards and check them out.
........
Well you will see some wonderful Flutter By 0r Butterfly cards again today from the whole Flutter By Wednesday Team:
.......
....... Me - Heather
.......
Don't forget to stop by all their blogs and show them some love for their hard work on this Weeks Flutter By cards. Danni has asked us all to stay on for at least 1 more month so you will be seeing many more Flutter By Wednesday Posts here!!!!! Yea!!!!!
.......
Did you notice the new Flutter By Wednesday Button on my side bar???? Jami Bova (Sgt. Stamper) Designed that button for us to put on our blogs, I have the Blinkie and link to Jami's Web design studio where you can order water marks, siggy's, blog boarders, custom web design and much more and she has great prices and great designs for you. She personalizes each design specifically to what you want and your personality!!!! Check it out too!!!!
.......
For me this week it really was hard work. I started this card 4 different times and finally choose to cover up the last mistake (only Tasha and Janna know what it is, and I'm keeping my mouth shut unless you notice it!!!) Most of my problems can be blamed on a very interested and mischievous 1 year old little boy!!!! I did finally get it done though and here is my Card for this Week's Flutter By Wednesdays Featured Stamper Challenge.
.......
This Week I choose to use my Lily and Billy stamps along with their butterfly catching equipment from Lily and Billy Accessories #2. I also used the smallest Flutter by from my Flight of the Butterfly SU stamp set. They are the ones flying around the edge of the card. The Flutter By's in Lily and Billy's Net's and fluttering above them are also from the Lily and Billy Accessories #2 from Pink Cat Studio.
.......
I took this picture to give you a view of the wonderful Shimmerz on Lily's Dress, earrings, pony tails, and the Pink Butterfly's. You can sort of see it here, I took one more picture that was better but for some reason it did not import to my computer so I used this one instead.
.......
I also made this card for the current Pink Cat Studio Challenge going on over at Paper Craft Planet in our Pink Cat Group. The Challenge is to use
1. Something Pink
2. Some kind of Critter (I am saying Flutter By's are critters here)
3. Some kind of Sparkle or Shimmerz in your card
So PCS (Pink Cat Studio) and Pink, Critter, Shimmerz or Sparkle. (Get it???)
.......

Here is a close up of Lilly and Billy on their Flutter By Hunt!!!

.......

O.K. I guess that is about it for Flutter By this week remember to stop by the other Team Members blogs and see their great Flutter By Cards too!!! Oh and you can play along to earn that great Blog Candy as Well!!!!

.......

I have 2 already scheduled posts for later today for two more projects I have been working on so do not forget to check back later!!!

.......

Have a Stampendous Wednesday!!!
