Happy Birthday Ant

Good Evening all...
Tonight I am posting a card that I made as a sample for the Rubber Room and I made on for my brother Mike's birthday that is on the 8th. I decided on the High Hopes Ant because like all their new releases it was fun! I used Copic Markers for him and added a few flowers. You can not really tell from this photo but I did it all in brown tones not black. I hope you like him. Thanks for stopping by.

Witch with Attitude

Happy Monday all... Okay maybe not. If you are like me Monday was not any great shakes. I had to work overtime yet again. Ahh well what we won't do for our jobs. So with that in mind the card I am posting tonight is one that not only had the humor factor but also it has the sentiment that we all may have shared at one time or another.

I got the set of stamps from Third Coast Stamps. I coloured the whole thing with Prismacolor pencils and Orderless Mineral Spirits. The back ground paper is from the Kindergarten Stack. I figured word paper made it look like the mirror was say a whole bunch of things to her at the time she broke it.

Well that is all for tonight. Have a great week everyone.

Lazy Ant High Hopes Challenge # 27

This will be the first time I have ever taken part in a challenge.
Well I am hooked I have been bitten with the Copic bug. As you can see from my latest post. This little guy will is just to much fun to make. I did this with Copic markers. The layout I have to say I huge thanks to Cathy from the Rubber Room for giving me a hand with it. This cute little guy is now on display at the Rubber Room with the Copic's to show people what they can do with them. Well I am off now to play some more with them. Have a great evening.

Young Love

Hi everyone and happy Wednsday! Well I finally did it, I got some Copic markers, Cathy at the Rubber Room had them in stock and I thought yup I am going to get them. Here is what I did as my first attempt at using them. The image is from Pink Cat Studio. It is a learning curve I will say that much. Please let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great rest of the week. Diane

"Moo"d Swings

This card I did with all High Hopes Stamps. I just love the expression on the cows face. I colored it using Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, this was my first time ever veering away from using my beloved Tombows. I must say that I love using them as much as Tombows now! I had a lot of fun doing this card the inside caption read, isn't menopause udderly depressing.
My next big adventure is get some Copics to try them next.
Thanks for stopping by.

Down in the Dumps ?!

The last couple of days seem to have lasted forever so I thought I am going to give myself and others a good laugh by posting this Down in the Dumps card I made. The stamp is a Judith stamp and I painted it with Tombows and added Stickles on the flowers. The background I used a toilet paper stamp, also by Judith, I had. Thanks for stopping by I hope you have a great day. Diane

Corset Fun

Hi All,

Now that I have started this blog I figure I might as well get all the pictures I have of different things I made up on it for all who are interested to see. This corset I enlarged to 190% of the original pattern that I got from Card Carousel. If you like it I urge you to go to their website and see all the neat things they have. I will be posting different things I have made from the patterns I purchased. Diane
