Stitches and Swirls

Merry Christmas and Hello friends!  Its been awhile.  I've been knee deep in 7th grade curriculum and grading.  Haven't touched an ink pad for most of the school year.  However, Christmas break has given me some relax time which has been great!  Yay for a little free time!
I give you a card!  I used Stitches and Swirls from PTI.  I colored it with my copics.  While coloring I realized many of my pens are dry so of course I needed to place a large refill order.  Getting those pens filled back up soon!  Colors here are Lime Ice and Berry Sorbet (PTI).  I've got stickles on the flowers which is showing up a bit weird in the picture.  Thanks for taking the time to stop in!

Hello Friends!  Greetings from me, she who has been absent due to a crushing workload, to you!
I have finally made something!  I am still in shock over that.  I know its not much but when you haven't had any time to do anything, even the smallest, simplest cards seem like an accomplishment.  This card is all PTI.  The stamps are from the newly released Tinsel and Tags kit.  I have to say the stamp design is genius and I hope I get a chance to ink them again.  Hopefully before Christmas!  Thanks for stopping by!

Daffodil Thank You

Greetings friends!  Today I have a copic colored card for you.  Its been awhile since I last had my pens out!  Heck the crafty supplies haven't seen much use at all lately!  So much going on in my life!  Let me get the card deets out of the way and then I will catch you up.  First off, this card uses two PTI sets:  Year of the Flowers, Daffodil and Background Basics, Tin Type.  I stamped both in dark chocolate ink.  The base of the flower in white and the base of the card is fine linen.  I cut the flower out using the coordinating die.  I colored it with Y13,Y15,Y17, and Y18.  The stem/leaves are colored with YG23 and YG25.  The sentiment is from Thanks All Ways (I think...).  The washi tape is from WRMemories and the sequins are doodlebug.
RANDOMNESS:  So I've been busy starting a new teaching job at a new school.  I've changed both grades and subjects.  I am now teaching 7th grade ELA/History and an elective focused on merging technology and science and writing.  I am super excited but wow, so much work!  Anyway the workload will definitely be keeping me busy especially when school starts on the 2nd.
Leaving my old school was really hard (but a good decision I think!).  I was there 17 years!  Craziness. My principal retired last year and I decided it was time for a change.  Speaking of that, when she retired I drew her this picture of the front of the school and colored it with my copics.  Its 8.5x11 inches.  I framed it for her.  She loved it!  IMG_0226
I really enjoyed doing it.  Sometimes we get so busy we totally forget to do the things we love.  I love to draw.  Thanks for stopping in today!

Hello friends!  Today I have a CAS card I made with stamps from Lil' Inkers.  First I cut the seriously with their new die.  I love this die.  LOVE it!  Easy to use and so versatile.  Next I stamped the sentiment using Memento black.  I added strips of patterned paper (Echo Park), some more Lil' Inkers stamps, and some stickles.  Quick and fun.  Thanks for stopping in!
