Moments and Memories........

Sorry about this post, Blogger has a mind of its own this morning......imagine that!!

Happy Tuesday morning to everyone!!

Today is the day for the new releases at Little Paper Shop.
Hop on over and scoop up those stamp sets!!

While I was on vacation I had stamped a lot of images
and managed to find some time to get some colouring done in our
lap of luxury motel rooms!!

Once in a lifetime right??

I think that was the theme of the whole vacation --
"Well, we will never do this again, so let's do it right"
and then the Visa bill just showed up yeterday - nice homecoming - yuck!

I hope that Visa Bill is once in a lifetime..... LOL!

I stamped this image with Brilliance Black ink and coloured it in with copics,
based on our hotel colours - beautiful soft blues and beiges and browns.

This image and sentiment is from one of the small acrylic stamp sets from
Crafty Secrets and is called "Story of Me"

The background paper is from
DCWV "Once Upon a Time"
8 x 8 paper pack which I thought very appropriate for this image.

I did a bit of distressing to show an old age theme and
sewed only around the three sides to encase the image -----
don't I sound smart??!!

I cut out the border from the DCWV paper
and glued it to the left hand side.

Using the nestabilities I cut out the circle from the designer paper, folded it in half and tucked it in on the side of the image.

I punched a hole in it with my Crop-a-dile and added two small lengths
of this delicious ribbon from Flourishes and tied a knot.

I added a bit of Sakura glitter pen and Stickles
to the background paper,
which I think I was able to capture in this photograph.....

Well, I am off to PAY the bills and start saving for Christmas now.......never ending!!

  6. What a work of art! I love the way you used the text paper and that shimmery blue spine along the side: astoundingly pretty. Such a gorgeous image. Your colouring is just pure art! LOVE it all! :O)

  7. Bonnie, this is adorable! I hae 2 brilliance ink pads I found on clearance (.25 how could I turn them down, LOL) they are so pretty, I can only imagine how wonderful the black brilliance is. I will have to look for it next time I am at my LSS.

    The gel pens are awesome, aren't they! Once I started using them, images looked flat without "something" in it being gel penned. I only wish my white pen worked as well.

    Thanks for sharing this card.
