Hey Girlfriend!

I am getting back into the swing of things, finally. We had a big push getting VSN samples out the door, and then I had a writing assignment, and some other art due in December. Finally, I have rested my muse enough to start feeling the need to create again. Does that ever happen to you?

Well, here's a card that I made for Virtual Stamp Night, but never got around to sharing with you. I used the salting technique with alcohol inks to create this stained glass or tie dyed effect in the background. The bird is from Gina K Designs Falling For You set, the sentiment is from the You Go Girl set, and the tree is from the Strength and Hope set.

The new year is upon us. Wherever did the time go? I am working on my visions for the new year and would love to hear about your plans. Let me know you stopped by!

Ta for now!

Me and my muse

Me and my muse have been in touch again. Here are some more cards I made for the latest Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoast.

This was created for the blue Christmas challenge, and was sent to my Dad for him to enjoy.

I had a great deal of fun creating this card for the unseasonably warm challenge to make a Christmas card with non-Christmas images. Love the Cat's Pajama's stamps - so funny!

This card was perfect for my sis-in-law and her family. I hope they enjoy their gifts. We had a great visit over thanksgiving and her husband is a darned good chef! The challenge was to make a card with six or more layers.

This tag (I love tags!) was made for the music challenge. Our projects had to feature music, so I decided to showcase what music makes me want to do - dance!

I hope you find some inspiration here. I am always happy to have you visit me! Oh, and if you need more inspiration, check out my Art Journal blog, the Gesso Dragon!

There's Still Time!

Did you know this was VSN weekend? Did you know you still have time to play along? I didn't get all of the challenges completed because Santa came early. I plan to finish my cards and projects today or tomorrow. Yep, VSN is open until 10 p.m. EST on Monday night! Here's a sample of what I made:

You don't have to make just cards! I channeled my inner Tim for this tag. This challenge involved making a project from packaging or wrapping paper - celebrating all those wonderful gifts we get!

I made this card for my sister because her birthday is so close to Christmas. This challenge was to find inspiration in your wardrobe. I love the Narnia reference for this challenge!

And you know I couldn't go through the night without a bunneh!! Lydia challenged us to make a project using the CUTEST bunneh photo as inspiration. We were to represent what gave us the warm fuzzies! SQUEEE!!

Ok - so there's a little sampling of all the fun you can have at Virtual Stamp Night. It is a wonderful time to share inspiration and laughter with other stampers.

Alrighty - I'm gonna be busy today. Hope to see you over there!

Upcoming Fun

Hey friends - do you know what this weekend is? It's Virtual Stamp Night over at Splitcoast Stampers! Woohoo! We are gonna have a lot of fun challenges for you!

Here's a little sneak of one of my samples. I wonder if you can guess what it is?

The fun starts at 5 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, December 9th, and we'll have a new challenge every hour until 9 p.m. Eastern. Now, don't worry - you have all weekend to do the challenges - uploads close Monday night. Here's another teaser...

I know, I'm so mean! We'll start back up on Saturday, December 10th, at noon Eastern time with a challenge just for kids, then resume the regular schedule at 1 p.m. The party goes until 11 p.m. Eastern on Saturday, so everyone will have a chance to at least come chat and hang out. It's a Winter Wonderland theme!

Ok... I'd better see you there. Promise? Great!
