'Tis Almost the Season...

 If you're in need of some more adorable inspiration for Christmas cards, then I hope these cuties will do the trick. 
Here is a sampler of Rick St. Dennis' Candlelight.  She is one the newest stamps available over at
I was given the wonderful opportunity to play around with two more stamps and here are my projects I hope inspire you for the holidays.

Following the incredible tutorial here over at PaperHaus Magazine, I've created a handmade canvas using this cutie for a holiday decoration.

and on to decorating the canvas

 What's this???
 Homemade paste with the credit going to this post here!
Alongside my homemade stencils made on the Cameo Silhouette cutter.

Still following PaperHaus

A little fun with her garments...
Using Cotton Crinoline from The Funkie Junkie Boutique
Finished project with Mrs. Claus on a canvas
and still another project with lots of pictures...

I decided to create a little birdhouse with this cutie.

Outhouses and Friends....

I have somehow managed to equate friendships to the importance of outhouses....
They each help carry the load!
Which is why when I saw this image from Rick St. Dennis' Etsy store, I knew it had to be on a card.
Here is the wonderful image Big SuR Outhouse 2013.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit and my humor. ;)
hugs n' happy stamping...

Nap Time...

I'm speaking of naps, but not because these are babies, but did you see what the Kewpies are subjecting the baby too??  ICK!  
Political Economy and Algebra?? Total nap time for me!

However, despite my lack of interest in these subjects, I do love this vintage image from
Here it is colored up in copics
 And here it is on a card....
 The entire collection

Intimidation Tag....

Know anyone who tampers with the gifts under the tree before Christmas? 
Guilty as charged!! 
I'm horrible and should be on 24/7 watch during the holidays.  
I can't help it.  The pretty bows and paper and tiny tags...just too stinking cute!

So who better to keep me at bay than this incredibly intimidating Santa from Rick St. Dennis.
Here is You Want WHAT on a tag.
So go ahead and swing by Rick's Etsy store and snag you up this awesome image and get started on the Christmas shopping and wrapping early.
SO happy you stopped in for a visit.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping...

Rick's Newsletter and Freebie Weekend, again!!! :)

 Freebie Bad Bitsy
Colored with Copic Markers

Here are a couple of cheeky images from Rick St Dennis MFA.

"Now, if you are a subscriber to Rick's Newsletter, you will have received this gorgeous pair of angels, well Bitsy isn't showing her best side right this moment, but she looks like an angel when asleep. Buddy on the other hand looks like your typical teacher's pet. 
Both images will be available in Rick's Etsy shop shortly.
If you're not already a subscriber to the Newsletter, why not? A couple of new images a month for free from Rick and a heads up on all the up and coming events. All it takes is to send an email to Rick with your email address in the text. For more information, it's available on Rick's blog. There will be no more freebies available on the blogs because of the unkind people that share them on Pinterest. It was a hard decision to make but digi theft has become a major concern for many artists, not just Rick. So, if you want to continue benefiting from Rick's generosity, the subscription to the emailed Newsletter is a necessity."

When I'm not feeling up to par my favorite things are Sprite, comfy blankey, cozy jammies, classic movies on TV and now..this card. 
It's paper piecing time over at Top Tip Tuesday and I'm using Pure Innocence 26, from Heather Ellis, to help spread well wishes.  For a little extra touch I added a window and paper pieced curtain to compliment her candy-stripe outfit. 
I'd love to have you join us at Top Tip Tuesday for some fun and you'll be in the running for a prize from Heather as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping and keep taking them vitamins!
