Tony playing his DS. All the kids were over last night! Tony lives with us, but the 2 little ones don't!
Ariana is 4 years old. Her nickname is Fena. Grampy calls her Fe fi foe!

Ariana and Nicholas. Nicholas is my revenge on his father! He's a climber, explorer and a 3 ring circus, all balled up in one!

A Challenge

The challenge this week on Inkstainers is to do a Christmas card in non traditional colors. The challenge was mine! The bears and the sentiment are stamps from my Mom. So now I have a Christmas card for my stash!

Another CB embossed card

I love this embossing folder! Another super easy card!

I think spring has arrived in Vermont! Sugaring is in full swing, and I can see bits of what will eventually be a green lawn! I know we'll get a few more snows, but I'm loving the warmer days and watching the snow melt!

I hate making sympathy cards. I always wait until I need one, then I go buy it! So this is one for my stash. Used the leaves CB embossing folder and sponged some ink on. Easy peasey!

More Wolves

I was sent this image by Michelle, from Inkstainers. We were supposed to do something with it and then mingle it out. I flaked on the whole thing. But when I found the image this morning, I knew I could "Zindorf" it. Will be sending it up to Nova Scotia, where it should have gone several months ago!

Thanks Sandie!

My friend Sandie, from Inkstainers, sent me this image, stamped on thin wood. Told me to do something with it so she could CASE it. Well that was a long time ago. I sponged ink on the grass and the deer. Then used Prismacolor pencils for the details. Sorry its a lousey picture Sandie...But its on its way to Texas, so you'll be able to see it better!!!

Blue and Yellow Challenge

I posted the challenge on Inkstainers this week. Blue and yellow, and use a punch or a die. I smudged the white stamped image with my inky finger though!

We're back to winter here. I knew the warm wouldn't last, but we got hit hard yesterday! Lots of that nasty wintery mix! And more in the forecast for tonight.
