So the thing about blogs is that if you are going to have one you need to keep it updated. So here I am, finally. I have several things I've been working on but I'll start with the last thing I finished and go on from there.

This is Stella... I'd love to say I came up with her but nope, she's the brain child from Jodie over at Bugaboo Stamps
She is my first attempt at using digi stamps in my cards and things. Don't you just love her hat? This is going to be the first of several "Stella" cards cause Jodie has a ton of Stella images and she totally appeals to my evil sense of humor.

I think I'm in love. For this particular card I used my chalks from The Stencil Company. At first I was thinking "I'm coloring!" While I like the first one OK; by the time I got to the fourth one I had refined my technique and developed how I was going to get the color on the card stock. It was fun.

Things I learned along the way...start with the lightest color and do the darkest/brightest last, and if you insist on using your fingers make sure you wash your hands so that you don't get fingerprints on your card.

I also used cards from my stash and papers from my DCWV Mango Frost mat stack. Let me know how you like it.
