How are you? Both German sets here, along with my new CB embossing folder, and some yummy new ribbon.
Happy Easter! For this Easter card I did not want to use the browns and beiges again, but I didn't want it to be too bright either. So I dug out my SU color wheel and these colors were on it. Almost Amethyst, Rose Red, Always Artichoke, So Saffron, and it even had Pumpkin Pie which I did not use.

Another family photo, another Technique Junkies technique, and another sneak peak of the new stamps from Fire Cracker Designs by Pamela
. I thought it would be fun to try this tech "Penciled Twinks" on a photo and this is the result. I only colored the car and left the rest of the photo alone. How come when you want twinks to show up in a scan or photo they wont, but on this one I could not get a photo showing that you can still see through the windows of the car? It looks like a bunch of white globs! But IRL it looks good, and I think Lyles aunt (who is the little girl in the photo) will be pleased to recieve this card. The German word on the tag means Super in English. Don't forget to check the previous post for another sneak peak, and to check out the German stamp sets.

I have been so anxious to start posting these creations with Lyles family photos and the new German stamps from Fire Cracker Designs by Pamela. Here is the first sneak peak of the new sets. They are on preorder until Feb. 23 Click HERE to go to the German preorder combo page!!
More sneak peaks to come!!!
To the left of where I am standing there is a shelf that holds my 12x12 papers, several books, and the few stamps that are still mounted. (if you look close you can see a sliver of the shelf- it is yellow) Beside it is a cd rack full of naked stamps. That's it! Everything else is in this picture. There are all those drawers you can see in the pic, there is also an iris cart under the desk which you can barely see behind the chair. Also on the side by that door there is another 3 drawers. And of course there is the mess of magazines on the floor there. Those are not always there, but usually something is! Yes my creative space is small, messy, and not really organized. But I make it work and get a lot of creating done here. Well except when I am working on a canvas. Then I have to go into the laundry room and work! What a creative mess there is on top of my chest freezer!
This is one of the journals I made for the craft shows I did last fall.
This is a card I did for a swap. We were suppose to use our newest stamp. My newest stamp was a set of stitching stamps. So I created this not even knowing the reciever was a quilter. She really loved this.
This was for another swap, we had to make an ornament. This retired SU Christmas set is still one of my favs. And my good friend Joy picked it up on ebay for me. I think I use it every year for one project or another.

This one was to make a card using Polka Dots.
This one was an inspiration challenge. We were shown a picture of a bed with luxurious bedding on it and had to take our inspiration from the colors, pattern, theme, whatever we chose. I punched out the flourish from my new grungeboard and used the negative space as a template. First I spritzed some green ink on, then sprayed over it with green Glimmer Mist.
This one was to case another SCS member, they choose one persons gallery each week and you go through it and pick a card to case. The Featured Designer this week was Sarah Green. I have always loved her gallery and already had several of her cards saved to my favorites. I cased another of her cards which I will share in a couple of weeks. I have several more projects to share then.
