happy thoughts

Hello there! I just can't believe it's Friday! Didn't it creep up quickly this week?


I have another card to share with Kiyomi from Sister Stamps. I stamped and colored her with Copics and popped up the butterfly for a bit of dimension. I added some washi tape on the bottom to "ground" the image along with a few pearls and a sentiment by Hero Arts.

And I found my set of stamps that I was looking for! Happy day! I'll be working on my card with a summer theme this weekend. Do you have any plans for the weekend?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps: Sister Stamps, Hero Arts
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Stampin Up

  3. Kiyomi looks so cute! I love the washi tape, it does add a little something to the card. Terrific job Donna! Yay, so happy you found your stamps. Can't wait to see what you make.
    Hopefully I'll get to sleep this weekend, but other than that I hope to go to the Carson Stamp in the Hand convention in Carson, CA. If not, I'll be at home crafting. How about you? Hope it's wonderful! Have a great Friday! Hugs,

  4. It's so amazing how you can add so much depth and detail to black hair...I'm always so blown away by your talent with the Copic coloring; I'd love to have a one-on-one class with you....maybe one day. This card is so full of charm, it's a special one!
    I'll be having a yard sale tomorrow and then I'm helping my sis pick out paint colors for her new place and finishing the weekend with a potluck get-together with dear friends.
    Have a great weekend, Donna

    On another note, my POD stamps arrived today! Wow! That's some serious rubber! I've read on their blog on how to use them, but could you offer me up some advice on how you stamp with them? How do YOU mount them, etc.? Thank you so much in advance!
