This and That


My prize goodies arrived from Art Impressions yesterday!! And since a few expressed interest in seeing what I picked out, here they are. After considerable deliberation, I found that with these sets I got the most with my prize winnings, even though I already had a few of the images. I also picked out a couple other small unmounted stamps as part of my prize which I didn't include in the picture.

This is a quick thank-you card I made to send to Art Impressions to express my appreciation for the goodies. I used one of their clear sets. I see why I love these so much: As much as I love to stamp, I knew from the time I started stamping I would never like the process of coloring a rubber stamp with different color markers and then putting my image to paper. But with these sets you can build your image as you go along, stamping with different colors from your ink pad. And because it's clear, there's no problem with positioning. I like this process a whole lot better.


Finally, here are the Spring Inchies from Joanne's Inchie Swap. Mine's in the middle. To find out more, visit Joanne's site.
