I'm Still Alive!

Hi there!

I know it's been forever again since my last post and I want to thank those of you who left comments, sent messages, and emails to ask where I've been. I've been here - well, not right here at my blog, but I'm around on the web all the time. Mostly over on Instagram, but on Flickr too, running the Simon Says Stamp group over there. I love doing that but it takes up a lot of my time. 

I have also been visiting many of your blogs, looking at everyone's amazing creativity but I just don't always have time to comment and I feel so bad about that! It's something that I really love doing and I miss it!

I've been very busy with work, family life and gearing up toward retirement too. There is so much to think about and do when planning to retire. It's scary and exciting all at the same time. My hubby and I will both be officially retired at the end of this year, and I know I'll have more time then, to get back to commenting more on all of your wonderful blogs. Can't WAIT!

Anyway, I've also been creating. . . . .A LOT! No, really I have! Here's the proof:

Love this stamp by Clearly Besotted! Lots of water coloring on this one.

Another Clearly Besotted image - this time colored with Copics.

Here's a beautiful image from Penny Black - water coloring again.

And another Penny Black image, colored with Copics.

LOVE the Crazy Birds set by Tim Holtz! I used a Simon Says Stamp die-cut as a stencil to create a fun background for this funny guy!

These are all little stamps by Art Impressions and they are soooo fun to watercolor!

More pots with flowers but this time from WPlus9. I stamped and die-cut the flowers and colored the pots with Copics. 

Last one. Love the "shadow technique!" Stamped these adorable flowers, by Simon Says Stamp, first in white pigment ink, then over top of that with Audrey Blue ink from SSS. Love the look on kraft cardstock!

Sorry no links to products but if you have any questions, just let me know!

Thanks for stopping by! I always appreciate your visits and comments! ♥
