Thank you ...

Good morning. I spent some time coloring and crafting just for FUN this past week, and it reminded me of how much I just love to "just create". I picked up several images from Make it Crafty when I applied for their CAS Design Team last month. Even though I didn't get picked for the DT I am still in love with the images, and plan to create and share what I make with all of you.


This beautiful stamp is called Roses of Love, colored with Polychrome Pencils from Faber-Castell that I recently got. This is my first time coloring with these pencils and I still have a lot to learn. It was fun, and I'm looking forward to working with these pencils more in the future. The sky background was created with distress inks. Once done I layered the design on my cardbase, added the sentiment and enamel dots.
