New stamps

Took another lesson last week at our local Art store!  Learned lots!  Awesome value for anyone that lives close to Windsor NS, Canada!

came home with 3 sets of Kaiser stamp sets,  pens,  card bases, 8 Fantastic sticks,  8 Brilliance them!  and lots more!  and we go back for more lessons!

clear stamps are really growing on me!

anyway;  thanks for looking!    Have a great week!

I should have taken a before picture and an after picture!  I have a weakness for wooden boxes!  I purchased these many years ago with the intentions to paint them and likely give them away!  Last year I dug them out from my storage container and started to use them in my paper craft organization.  They worked well with organizing my many toys!  So I decided this year to pretty them up with paint!  It has been a very long time since I used my brushes and tole paints! I'm not a great base coater;  and some of the boxes were from the dollar store so not so perfect....but now they are so much more attractive than plain old boxes! 

so I have paints in one, inkagold in another.....flowersoft in another...pigments in the last one!  and 3 bottles of paint gone!  :)  Using what I have!  Makes me happy!  My clutter is getting slowly organized and spring is here!

 started raking today!  snow piles in the driveway are almost gone!

 Happy Sunday;  Thanks for looking!  Best wishes to you all!

A mixture!

Between learning my new OP system(s) on my computer and dog stuff in Feb/March, card/crafts took a back burner....just wasn't in the mood!  

This one needs a bow or something!

Thanks for looking!  Have a great day!

Spring Cleaning

 I purchased this poly clay many years ago!  Was inspired back then to try when watching one of Faye's demos!  But never got around to doing/trying!  so with cleaning/ and our spring that has not come... trying to use what I have!

colored with perfect pearls.

I need some lessons on this craft! 

This stamp set (rose) is one of the two sets that I came home with when I took my beginner course!  Awesome value for anyone that takes the courses at Nika's in Windsor.  You come home with stamps; ink; blending tools; colored pencils; card blanks; and more!  And learn lots!

Clear sets of stamps, have never been my prefered choice when it comes to stamps but they are now growing on me!  This one I have used so much since I got it!

card size: 4 1/4" X 5 1/2
