Skateboarding Themed Birthday Party!

My son loves skateboarding so I decided to throw a Skateboarding Themed Birthday Party. It was a blast putting all the invitations, and party decorations together including a skateboard banner that I designed myself! Here is the Birthday card I came up with. I used Copic Markers, Bazzil Card stock and a stamp from The Greeting Farm. Thanks for stopping by.

Fairy Visit!

I made this card for my daughter last Tuesday. She had a bad day at school and I decided to cheer her up with this card. I created this card using a Digi Stamp from The Greeting Farm, Copic Markers and Magical Mica from Lindy's Stamp Gang.Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a great day!

Sharing My Love of Copic Markers!

I was originally introduced to Copic marker by my Dad who is an Architect. These tools are usually used by Architects to draw up there designs. They are also popular among the hobby industry for use with models, ceramics and similar projects. I am in love with them and I have almost every color. The ink in the marker is almost odor free too.

Most people stay away from purchasing these outstanding markers because they are pricy but these marvelous markers are refillable YES you can refill these! I do have to mention that I have had a set for years and I have yet to refill it! So it’s an investment that you won’t regret.

It’s not unusual for me to have a set lying around my house at any given time. I usually keep a set of about 184 markers in my art studio or as my children call it “mom’s layer” lol. I also keep a bunch of them in my home office as well. I just can’t get enough! They are super easy to blend and work with.

OH and did I mention that my favorite markers can easily become an airbrush. Copic markers and Sketch markers both work with an airbrush System. That will be my next investment! Ok so isn’t this the coolest thing? I think so just look around my blog and you’ll find a bunch of my creations with these great markers. Go ahead try them out and tell me what you think…

Been MIA!

Hi everyone so I’ve missing for a while but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been creating here is an adorable tag I created for one of my web friends hope she likes it. This past weekend I went away on a mini vacation to Catalina Island with scrubby and it was BEAUTIFUL. I was able to snap a bunch of magnificent pics so enjoy!

MoonGlow Starburst Spray Review

In my humble opinion these products are a good way to invest your money. The color payoff is great and I love the different effects that can be achieved by these products. I applied the sprays on a multitude of different surfaces and got amazing results.

I highly recommend them. Products I used Starburst spray in Cocoa Bean Copper, Glitz Spritz in Royal Peacock Fire, & Cathedral Pines green Mica Powder.

Tim Holtz Alterations Dies, white, black, copper, & gold Adirondack dabbers, my personal favorites Copic markers, & Wild Honey Distress ink on the border of my layout.

You can check them out at Lindy's Stamp Gang
