It's Sunday!

It's time to get your dog stamps out & get a stampin'!

For this weeks Fun Filled Friday Challenge I've challenged Kimmy to create a card using a Dog image. I know I only have a few dog images, but to see which one I pick you'll have to wait til this Friday March 13th(!) to see it.

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I've been card making like crazy with all of the new images by DRS Designs that were just released this past Friday. Have you see all of them yet? If you haven't, make sure to run over here and check them out. There are new Easter images and some new kids on the block--they are absolutely adorable! I'll be featuring these images for majority of the next 10 days or so!!!!

Sunday's are usually just a quick blog day for me to explain the next Fun Filled Friday Challenge. This way I can focus my time on some other things like having a nice, quiet morning reading the Sunday paper, grocery shopping, meal planning and prepping for the upcoming week and spending time with family. However, because I have such a plethora of cards to share, I wanted to make sure I posted one today.

With the latest release of stamps, the DRS Designs DT received word that more sympathy card samples were needed to give to stores that sell their stamps. I must admit, that Sympathy cards are not my favorite to make--I like the fun & cute stuff, but I am getting better. I've made 3 sympathy cards this week and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. Here's the first one...

This focal image on this card is the Calla Lilly Sympathy Frame stamp. I chose to color the flowers light pink because more often then not you always see them white. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. Even with the bit of color on this sympathy card I still think it gives that serene, calming feel.

I created the background by stamping the branch background image repeatedly with Versamark, sprinkled it with clear embossing powder, and then heat set it.

I also painted the flowers with Opal Shimmerz.

Well, the Daylight Savings time change has officially wore me out. To make matters worse I had to be at work today at 6am, which my body felt the pain of 5am! I plan on taking it easy the rest of the day, perhaps on the couch with a good movie, and maybe a little shut-eye too, to make up for my lost hour of sleep. For those of you in Arizona and else where, where Daylight Savings time doesn't exist, I think you guys are really lucky sometimes!

Hope you guys don't feel as pooped as me!

Ta-Ta for now...
