Grow & Bloom

Hello and Happy Sunday!
We had some "much needed" rain today.   After the big fire - this is just what the doctor ordered!  
If we can just keep the flooding in check, we will be going good!    

And now, it's time for another new Release from Sherri Blady.  
This is a stamp set called Grow and Bloom.   

Grow & Bloom (Sherri Baldy's My Besties)

 Coloring Tutorial  in HD YouTube can be found HERE

I love the color combinations used in this image.   I used Copic Alcohol ink markers and I have them all listed in the video .  

Take care and I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!  

Happy Haunting!


First I want to apologize for the delay in posting .    My area County was devastated with the second wort fire in the history of California.     As you may know, I work as an RN Patient Care Coordinator in an Emergency Department but I have been spending my time off helping with the victims of the fire.   Things will take a long time to recover - but the infrastructure of rebuilding is now in place and the process that will take a few years has started.  

And now to introduce you to Sherri Baldy[s newest SVG  file that can be found HERE. 

 I used my Cameo to cut the files.   Vintage Photo Distress Ink was used to sponge the edges!  
What an easy halloween Card!!!   This is a card that can also be used as a Fall Card by changing the sentiment!  

Thank you for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

Pamper Yourself

Hello and happy Thursday.   

I wanted to share one of the cards I created with Sherri Baldy's latest release.   
I love this little image.   

I colored her with Copic Markers and used a colorless blender and 
then I used a 
sea sponge to texturize.
I really like this technique for adding texture.  

I hope you like this -  
 Have a fantastic week -
