Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Here in the Pacific Northwest it was a beautiful day. My brother-in-law is visiting us from Florida and he always says we live in paradise. I am not sure he would feel that way if he came to visit us in January but for right now, he is right. While we waited for him to arrive I spent a little time in my stamp room. I wanted to do some coloring. It has been an intense few days and I find coloring to be relaxing and almost meditative.
I used a combination of Marina Mist and Midnight Muse to color the poppies. You see that lovely ribbon? Starting today, you get a FREE spool of 3/8" Stitched Satin ribbon with every $40 purchase. This ribbon is soft and supple and a dream to tie.

Are you wondering how I stamped just part of the stamp?
I use post it notes or scrap paper and cover up the parts of the stamp I do not want inked. I ink the part of the image I want and when I am ready to stamp i take the post it away and then stamp.
