Here is my news....

OK... here is my "Oh, that's kind of interesting" news (see, now I'm intimidated!)

Johanna (from justjohanna) has converted more of my drawings into actual, real rubber stamps!! Is that thrilling or what?! I'm so excited!

These are a collection of fall images, pumpkins, gourd birdhouses, a fall scene, and a series of fall flourishes (straight, corners and a wreath).

These are the pumpkins. For this card I colored the pumpkins with my Prisma and Copic Markers and then covered the image with "Sugar Dust" - very tiny glass beads I picked up at a stamping convention.

This is the pattern for the fall flourishes (these are the large corners). I was trying to make them flexible, so they could be combined or used alone as an accent. I thought I could also use then as a photo corner for a fall scrapbook page.

The collection has this same pattern (leaves and wheat) in a straight garland (4 1/4 inches to fit across a standard card). There is also a round wreath and the sayings ("Harvest Hello" and "Happy Harvest") can fit in the middle.

Here are the pumpkins again along with one of the gourd birdhouses (I added cute little Sylvie there to the top).




This last one is the Autumn scene. I added Sylvie and Candace so they could have a little bird party.

I'm just so tickled! I really hope you like them. They are up on the site now in case you just can't resist them (LOL).
I'll post samples with the other images soon.
Sorry this post is so long. Thanks so much for stopping by!
