Doodle This...

Another weekend has come and is almost gone. It's Sunday early evening, and before I get dinner started, I figured that I would post what I had been up to stamping-wise this weekend. It was another busy weekend (is there such a thing as a quiet weekend?), but not as much as last weekend. We celebrated my birthday on Saturday night (a few days late) by going out to dinner, since I don't get home early enough to make it worthwhile to go out. I don't want to make it too hard for the boys to get up the next morning! So we went to our favorite Japanese restaurant for dinner. Yummy - sushi! :) LOVE sushi - especially tuna and salmon. The restaurant NEVER lets me down and last night was not exception.

I had a ton of fun making this card. I made it for the Featured Stamper challenge on SCS. Emily was the featured stamper this week. She really is such a talented stamper and I loved looking through her gallery to find the card that I wanted to CASE. I really wanted to use my new Doodle This set (thanks to Denise for the inspiration from her blog this week!) and Emily had a perfect card to case in her gallery. So here's to killing a few birds with the proverbial stone (not that I would ever want hit any birds! LOL)

Stamps Used: Doodle This, All Year Cheer I
CS Used: So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Basic Grey - Stella Ruby, Whisper White
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Twinkling H2Os, Paper Piercer, Button, Twine
So I finally got a chance to use an aqua painter for the first time. Yes, I know I am behind the times... oh well. And the other funny thing is that I have had a bunch of Twinkling H2Os in my drawer for literally a couple of years that I never used, because I never had or remembered to get a brush or the aqua painters until now. I had bought them when I first started stamping and was in Riverside, CA for a business trip. There was this great stamping store right near my hotel and I just picked them up impulsively because I had read about them when they first because all the rage on SCS. So I used the both the H2Os and the aqua painter and was so happy with the results. The Twinkling H2Os are these little jars watercolors that are shimmery when you paint them on. So subtle but so very pretty.
And did you see my amazing watermark courtesy of Freckled Fun Designs. See my next post all about that!!
