Tuesdays are always fun because they bring Mercy's weekly sketch. What a great way to get back into the stamping groove :D I had a few things in mind for this but when I went to get the mail, lone behold there were the wonderful Flourishes Calendar Flower sets that I won on Christine's blog - score. Since I am a January baby and Crocuses are January's flower (plus I LOVE them), I decided to give this set a whirl. I toyed with inking it in black and colouring, but since I don't have Copics or markers I thought I'd try to just ink the colour on the stamp. Out came the SU Spots and thankfully, the ink is in all the right places LOL! I paired the Lavender Lace with Glorious green and Night of Navy. Had to get the Swiss Dots in there somewhere and though my birthday is still two weeks away, out came the Apron Lace punch for the border. What can I say, old B & E habits die hard....bowing my head in shame! After taking the picture I almost think the crocuses need to be coloured in so the navy doesn't overpower them so much. Gotta love hind sight!
I am re-reading the Twilight series since I went to see New Moon over the Christmas break. I must say Jacob's abs, pecs and guns got to me big time in that movie - excuse me while I wipe the drool off my keyboard LOL! Thankfully, I've read three of the books already and only have one to go because my sleeping hours are once again suffering. I'll have to put a hold on the other new books I got for Christmas until I get caught up on my sleep :D
Thanks for dropping in today. Have a fabulous day :D
