More Elvis Hits the Shelf!

Over at Cornish Heritage Farms, two new Elvis stamps were released on Thursday! Elvis on One Knee and the "Elvis Is" logo. The silhouette image is great for shadowing and kissing technique as it has so much white space. I combined both cards with Distressed Grid 6x6 Scrapblock (TM) stamp. I speak so highly of these 6x6 stamps because they are SO big and have so many uses on so many projects.

You can click on the images for a complete supply list over at my CHF gallery. Thanks for stopping by! Off to teach a class at Forever Scrapbooks in Burlington!

Question of the day: What lesson or new tidbit of information did you learn today?

My day has just begun, but I will make a point to observe something new. I am going to so many places today that surely I will learn something new.

Many blessings....

Navigate - That's Right!

I think my Dad would like this card. He may actually know what car it is! Although it was around before he was born. Hubby and I just finished playing some Rockband, me on drums, him on guitar. Tonight, I won, outplayed him on most songs. We are highly competitive, but in a good way. I was thinking of puttering around tonight, maybe will play along with 2 Sketches 4 You...

If you happen to have a Thomas Kinkade stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms, they are having a Blitz going on where you can upload some cards, participate in chats and challenges, and win some of those gorgeous stamps. Visit here for more info.

Background Technique: Apply clear embossing powder to stamped image, heat set. With foam applicator, rub in blue and green inks in various locations.

Hello people...Happy Monday. I am off for Family Day today. It's Ontario's 2nd annual holiday. So far, we went to see The Bee Movie and then we went to play glow in the dark mini-putting. My husband and I decided that we would never do that again with a 3 year old. Especially a grumpy one. When we got home, we had lunch and then I got to work with photographing some of my latest creations. This one is my favourite from a batch of 6 cards that I whipped together over the week.
