Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers.
2. Teach paper crafting classes and share the Joy.
3.Custom Design Products I love to use and share.
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Who wouldn't hug her?

Happy Friday everyone!  I've found a new favorite medium everyone!  The Stazon Metallic Silver ink pad!  Love, Love,Love it!  Also, my friend Jill has also shown me how much I love the rounded edges and I wanted to try it.  Really like it, it's a finishing technique I'll be using a lot of!  Thanks Jill!

This Friday is a brand new challenge over at Wags'n Whiskers.  I've been waiting to color this little cutie for such a long time and when I found this weeks theme, I just knew she was perfect!

I want to make sure that I tell everyone that my pictures aren't going to be up to par for a while because there is a spot on the inside of my lense and although it is under warranty, I have to send it out and it will be two or three weeks till I get it back!  I'm using my old camera for now and the zoom and pixels are just not the same.

I digress, The Wags'n Whiskers challenge is for you to show us:

Black plus Pearl or Ribbon

One random participant will win a Free Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamp of your choice.

You don't have to use a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp, but if you do, you will be entered into a 2nd drawing for a Free Wags 'n Whiskers Digi(including the Pin Ups).
