Two times in one week! WOW- getting to be a real Blogger here. On my last post I mentioned buying a Teresa Collins Stamp Making Machine and Spectrum Noir markers. Well they came in. The markers were an instant hit with me cause I love to color. I don't do it well but I love to color. I look forward to working with them.
The stamp machine is not such a big hit...I think once I get the hang of it, it will be OK but it will sure eat up a lot of ink from my printer. Over all I think if I can find a stamp, I'll buy it verse make it. The machine will come in handy I guess for those type stamps you wished you had but do not exist. We will see.

One of the things I like to do with my paper crafting is mix and match files and ideas. Most of the time the experiment is not successful but success is not the purpose..its the fun of doing it. Recently, I took two files that I got from SVGcuts.com- Breezy Backyard Lever cards and Iris Fold Cards and made a thank you card for my hubby. It is a Western theme and is a play on the song "You are My Sunshine". The paper I used was "the Naturals " from DCWV. I liked the paper so much I bought two pads of it and have used it on several "guy" projects.

Well off to the land of "couch". My uptime has been long enough and its time to prop the old foot up and do a little reading. I am currently reading Alexander Ivy's latest Guardians of Eternity series - "Bound by Darkness". It is one of the many books I got to purchase with the B&N gift card I got from my wonderful co-workers as a get well soon gift. I would show you the Thank You card I made them but I sent it to them before I took a picture. Oh well...
Have a great day and be at peace.
