PPinky Birthday greetings!


Happy Day PPinky friends!  I colored her ages ago and finally created a birthday card with her!  The pinks and yellows offset her blue little jacket so well.  I was able to create again this week with a "want to make time for" image instead of "need to color image"!  I know, lucky girl huh?  

My friend Alyce Keegan is always telling us to keep doing what makes us happy so that our mojo doesn't die and to enjoy and find the time to accomplish the things we love!  I'm taking her great advice this week of all our thankful weeks!  Hubby is home for the week, the house and yard are winter prepared and there's nothing left to do but to bake some homemade apple pie and drink some pumpkin spice flavored coffee with him while curled up in a warm blanket!

 INGREDIENTS: 
Image is PPinky
Iridescent - Gold rush paper
Bazzill Stock

But all the magic I have known
I've had to make myself.”

Winner! PPinky Candy and Shape EZ with PPINKY!


For the Winner of my Candy and the new PPInky candy, go all the way to the bottom of post!

Good Morning!  It's my turn to show off one of my favorite PPinky Rubber stamps exclusive at Treasured Times Rubber Stamps Store!  I've used my Derwent Inktense pencils on the Mr. Snowman image and in non traditional colors!  

I've combined this adorable Mr. Snowman image with one of my favorite Holiday Shape EZ templates called the Snowy Ball template available in my ETSY Store today!  The template has everything you need to create the base and the design paper layers that fit perfectly inside the base.  You can cut these by hand when running the design paper through your printer like a digital with the PNG or JPEG file types, or you can cut them with your machine as well!  



These Stamps are created with a special screen process in order to contain the wonderful shading that Chrishanthi the designer of PPinky includes in her images!  That's what makes them so different and quaint.  When you stamp them with a dark black ink, the shading may not allow your coloring medium to be as vibrant as you would like, however, I have created a video that can show you many options that resolves this!  I would love for you to 


If this video does not display correctly, please visit my You Tube Channel 
and see for yourself how you can stamp them to get the best quality possible!  Have fun! video
