Wow what a week!   Unfortunately because of buying and selling a house and getting ready for a big trip I have not had the time to make cards this week.  Hopefully I will this weekend.  We will be celebrating my Dad's 76th birthday on our trip and I have been instructed to make multiple birthday cards and a banner for his suite.

I am excited to announce the winner of the Art Impressions Wildly Cute Giraffe Stamp is.......Michelle George.  Congratulations Michelle!  I have sent you an email and look forward to sending you your stamp :)

My little niece loved her giraffe and card last week.  Here is a video of her opening her gift.  The reaction is completely priceless.  If you didn't get a chance to see that post CLICK HERE to check it out.  Please note:  This video requires Flash player…

It's a question I am often faced with.  Do I Copic or do I Zig?  They are both wonderful mediums with which to color.  When I get a stamp set like this beautiful Kind Soul set from Wplus9 I can normally choose one or the other but in this case I opted to Copic color one and do some cheerful no line watercoloring with the Zigs on another.  I was so excited to finally have the time and the inspiration to participate in The Daily Markers 30 day color challenge.
