Scaredy Cat .....

Happy Monday everyone!!! I am in a great mood today!!! We put an offer on the land we were looking at on Saturday and it was accepted!!!  We are closing on the 25th of this month.  We have tons of clearing to do, a road to be put in, sewer, water, electric a dock and so on and so on but it is ours.  After almost 5 months of looking for just the right place I do not care how much work we have to do. The lake is called Sunset Lake so right there it gives off an ambiance!!!!  I am just so excited to get crackin' on it!!! Thanks for all your well wishes and prayers!!!! I truly appreciate it!

Today I am showcasing an artist that I have not yet shown on my blog.  This little lovely is  ©Elaine Cox's Little Stars Witch and can be purchased at Sweet Pea Stamps. I had a wonderful time coloring her and hope you like her too.After this one she is now one of my favorites.  She is sold as a single stamp or on a sheet with three other stamps and the sentiment that I used with her!

I colored her with my copics and then cut her out to be able to pop her up on foam tape to give dimension. Glossy accents have been added to her eyes, lips and broomsticks.  I cut the scalloped background out with a Spellbinder Nestie on my Cuttlebug.  I thought the DP matched my coloring of the moon. What do you think? I never pick my DP out ahead of time. I guess maybe I should but I want to be free when I color.  I chose the purple polka dot DP to coordinate with the dots that I put on their hats with my Opal Liquid Pearls.  Stickles were also added to the stars on their hats. I stamped the sentiment directly onto my DP and then colored it in.  Last but not least I added a swirl of orange pearls and an Copic colored ribbon to match!

Don't forget you can win $50 in stamps from Sweet Pea just by placing an order between now and the end of the month.
