Wishing You Well - Penny Black - Mo Manning

Hello! Are you getting ready for the holidays? Me - sorta, I can't believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow. My daughter, Amy and family and Ryan and his g/f are coming for the weekend. The Turkey is bought and dethawing and tomorrow starts the baking. We don't make a big fuss over dinner and instead play with the kids, watch movies together - it's all about spending time with the family:)

Today I am sharing a card I made several years ago. I was on vacation for 3 weeks and got a little bit behind. Being an ICU and ER RN this stamp makes me smile! I loved my job and really do miss it. It's funny, I remember the alarm going off at 5 AM and thinking - wish I didn't have to go to work. Today, I would dearly love to do it all over again.  What's that old expression "be careful what you wish for" ?

Happy Thanksgiving to those in the states!

Fairy Stardust, Mo Manning from Penny Black

Happy Wednesday! I live in Maryland but writing this post a week ahead of time. I am currently in Arizona visiting my mom after spending a few days in Vegas with my daughter and family. The day this goes live I will be traveling to Phoenix to attend Jennifer Dove's Boot camp! Boot camp is 3 days of learning to color with Copics. Yep, I have taken many classes in the past five years but you learn something new with each class.Plus you get to meet lots of people you have been friends with online in person which is a great bonus. My BFF Sandi Huggett will be there with me and we are double trouble when we're together!

There is still a week left at 7 Kids College Fund challenge and the theme is "Any thing goes!" So come play with us and if you use a stamp from 7 Kids you have a chance of winning a $20.00 gift certificate!

C.C. Designs - Holiday Penguins

Hey it's the weekend!  So much to do and trying to find that energy I need to do it. The yard needs to be prepared for Winter and the weather is PERFECT! Bright and sunny in the 70's - Fall is my all time favorite time of the year with gorgeous trees with orange, red, and yellow leaves - just wish they lasted more than a few weeks because it becomes UGLY afterwards when they all fall off. If you live where you have seasons changing - you will know what I mean! 

This is the card I created for C.C.Designs newsletter. These sweeties are the Holiday Penguins and where should the penguins be? In the snow so I created the snow with Copic airbrushing using B91 and B93, cut the hills and edged them Memento Bahama blue. Colored with the C00-C7,  used Stickles Candy Cane. on their noses.
