Sending yall a little treat today...

So this week hasn't been the greatest as I have been a bit under the weather, but today I feel some what better and hope things will improve over the next few weeks.  About a week or so ago I was able to sit down and create in my new little happy space.  Hubby happened to locate a stamp I was looking for so I took out my Tim Holtz Distress Markers and got busy coloring up this adorable stamp from Stampendous.

Products used:
Stampendous "Kitty Candy Kiddo" Stamp
Tim Holtz Distress Markers
(Dusty Concord, Mustard Seed, Black Soot, Pumice Stone, Tea Dye, 
Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold and Crushed Olive)
Recollections "Night and Fall" Pattern paper (stars)
Recollections "Midnight Magic" Pattern paper (words)
Fancy Pants "Oct 31" Pattern paper (Diamonds)
Tim Holtz Distress ink Walnut Stain
Water Color Paper (for stamped image)
Ranger Archival Ink
Kraft Paper
Trick or Treat (computer generated)
Water Brush

Here is a close up

So I had a blast using the distress markers to water color the image.  I also took some marker techniques to add feathering to the hair etc. 

Now I must find this image from Stampendous.. It is a must have...

It's called Hay Ride Kiddos... Isn't it adorable... I must have it. 

Thanks so much for looking and I will be back soon with another project.  Till then... Happy Crafting!

Settled and Missing you...

Wow I never thought with moving etc that it would be this long since I last posted.  Where did all that time go.  I swear it only feels like it's been a couple weeks since I last posted, but a month in a half is just crazy.  Well we are finally in Texas and settled into a small little 3 bedroom rental till we find the home we want to buy.  Since our master bedroom is so huge hubby suggested I take a corner and set up a little crafting area for myself.  I have to say I am rather lucky that he supports my crafting enough to put an area in our master so I wouldn't have to lug my stuff out from a closet or garage every time I wanted to craft.

Now that almost everything I need is out of a box and has a spot I am back to creating and I love my new little area as it's all clean and tidy etc; but I am missing all my scrappy friends from Washington.  I just so happened to have the perfect stamp set on my table and created a card to let all my scrappy friends back in Washington know that I miss them and I'm thinking of them...

Products used:
Unity Stamps (sending my love)
Crate Paper Pattern paper (little BoPeep)
Tim Holtz Distress Markers 
(crushed olive, worn lipstick,walnut stain, broken china, tumbled glass and barn dorn.)
Water Color Paper
Kraft Paper
Momento Ink (tuxedo black)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Walnut Stain)

Here is a photo of my little crafty corner... 

I am still looking for the boxes with my coke and wine crate to store my Copic/Pro Markers, My Twine, smaller stamps and washi Tape etc.  Once I get those they will be added as well as some wall decor.. I also need to paint my cubbie storage on my desk (the blue and purple thing).  I am thinking of the same color as the teal crates or maybe even white. Anyway this is my little crafty corner.. It's not a whole room like I had before, but it's only temporary till we find the perfect house to buy.

I will be back tomorrow with another project.  Till then.... Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by.
