PTI December blog hop

Hello , I hope you are doing well today. I wanted to play along with this month's blog hop... but 1st I had to clean up my craft space... yikes! after making my Christmas cards I had a huge mess. I received some nice crafting supplies for Christmas , so I needed to put those in their place also.I took my inspiration from the assorted papers in the photo and used that idea for my background. I decided to make a birthday card. Because I'm sick of making Christmas cards. I think I made 200 ? not sure , lost count. Off to check out what everyone else made, see you soon.   Blog hop inspiration

Tis the Season

Hello, hope you are doing well. I've had a couple of rough days at work this week, so some coloring time was much needed. I have been looking for a good poinsettia stamp/die for ages, I'm a bit picky. I recently stumbled upon the Ellen Huston store , oh my !!! I had no idea what I was missing in life! Several orders later , I finally picked up this stunning stamp . LOVE!!!!!! Since it's an essential by Ellen I'm going to play along with the challenge they have going. There is a great prize... eek ! I would love to win.. I have my eye on the peony stamp next. Flowers are always great for watercoloring after work. Off to bed, tomorrow is gonna be a killer at work .....See you soon.
