Rylan McLeod Macey Arrives


I have so been waiting for the birth of my first grandson.

Rylan McLeod Macey decided not to wait until July 11th and came into our world at 7:02 p.m.  June 26th.  Weighing in at 7 lbs. 9 oz. and measuring 20 ins.

Mommy (Jennifer), Daddy (Dave) and baby Rylan are all doing well.  Here’s a pic of the happy family.  (Jennifer you do not look like you just gave birth!).


After his debut, he decided a nap was in order.


Thanks for stopping by and I’ll get some more pics up as soon as “Daddy” passes them along!

I stamped this image awhile ago and I don’t know who makes the stamp.  Kind of has a Magenta look about it. Ummmmm?  Any idea who makes this stamp????

I used sponges to apply dye inks to the background and colored him in with pencil crayons and added a little odorless mineral spirits to blend.  Added some teeny brads and the “Hello” (Hero Arts) to finish it off.

Plain & Simple


I love the look of white cards.  I find them to be so classy!  I’m not sure who makes this flower stamp, but it sure is a beauty.  I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa dye ink and colored in the image with Prismacolor pencils.  It doesn’t show well, but I used the ScorPal to add a couple of embossed lines to finish it off.

Thanks for looking and have a super day!

One of my favorite stamps


I colored with Tombow markers directly on this Penny Black stamp and overstamped on to a background piece that I had stamped with a piece of textured wallpaper using Distress Inks.  Thank you Susan for inspiring me to stamp with wallpaper.  I really like the subtle effect.  Using the same Distress ink I edged the torn piece of patterned paper.  Added some Stickles to the flowers and a couple of Peel Off border strips to finish it off.

For a co-worker

scan0013 I made this card for a co-worker who so sadly lost her aunt.  

Both stamps are by PSX and I’ve colored the image using alcohol markers.

New from Magenta!

I love these new flower cards from Magenta!  I had a blast making this one and will definitely be making more.

The cards are white and I’ve colored it by brayering chalk ink.  I jazzed it up a bit, okay a lot, by adding  some peel-offs, ribbon and Stickles and voila!

Using up the Scraps!


I love this little doggie from Inkadinkadoo!  I stamped him/her on a scrap of watercolor sprayed background paper and punched out some flowers from the same piece.  Pretty easy, peasy card!

This is for Jeannie & Arielle


Two of my blog followers have been asking me to get blogging again.  I don’t know where the time has gone!  I can’t believe it’s been 6 weeks since I posted.  I’ll try to do better!

I’m still on the pencil crayon and odourless mineral spirits “kick” .  Coloring is just so relaxing and it certainly helps now that we’ve got some sunshine and warmer temps.

Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!!!!!!

Lotza hugs!
