Original Artwork

Hello friends!  I have some pictures for you today of some of my sketches.  I've been sketching again (after not sketching for about 15 years) and really enjoying it.  I noticed about 6 months ago that my son was really showing an interest and aptitude for drawing and I bought him a sketchpad and some art pencils to encourage him.  Next I started teaching him how to look for shapes and shadows and the next thing I knew the urge for me to draw was impossible to ignore so it was back to the store to pick up another sketch book!  lol!  And here we are, me drawing and oh so happy about it!  Thanks for stopping in today!
Sketched Tree Frog - graphite

Inked Tree Frog

Inked Flower-  Pretty sure I am going to color this one and turn it into a card as soon as I get a bit of free time.

Hello There!

Hello Friends!  Another punched paper card for you today!  I used my circle punch and a tag die from PTI to complete this project.  The floral stamps are from Floral Fusion and Mini Blooms (both PTI).  The patterned paper is from that same Doodlebug pad I've been wearing out the last few days.  Finally got my money's worth from a 6x6 pad.

More Rainbow Dots

Hello Friends! More rainbow dots today.  Not sure how I feel about this one.  I like it and then I don't.  I wish that black and white cake was just a wee bit smaller.  I have a smaller cake stamp but its packed up in storage because we sold our house and will be on the move soon....  Anyhow this card has Doodlebug 6x6 patterned paper, PTI building blocks basics stamp set, and PTI tag it stamp set.
and here is the inside of the card.  I rarely do up the inside but in this case I am glad I did.  I love the inside.  I can almost see reversing the inside and outside.  Ah, decisions, decisions!  Have a great day friends.

Rainbow dots

Hello Friends!  I've been on a rainbow kick ever since picking up that Doodlebug paper pad.  Today I have a bunch of punched circles on a black card for you.  I love this card.  I don't think I can give it away.  Ha!  All doodlebug paper except for the PTI sentiment!  Have a great day!

Building Blocks

Hello friends!  Broke out  a new cover plate from PTI today.   I cut it out in black cardstock and then backed it with strips from a new Doodlebug 6x6 pad.  I mounted the whole thing on a white card base.  I stamped the sentiment from PTI's Building blocks in Memento Black.  Easy Peasey!   Thanks for stopping by!
