Funny Eggs!

Today's Featured Stamper on SCS is the ultra talented juliemlacey . Her gallery is such a great one, and I had sooooo much trouble choosing just one card to CASE. But after much thought I chose this one .

The stamp I chose to use is Penny Black's Funny Eggs! . Actually, I had a little help choosing this stamp. One night last week when the grands were spending the night, my 3 year-old granddaughter walked into the kitchen with this stamp in one hand, and my Onyx Black Versafine ink pad in the other. She had already inked the stamp, her hands, and a couple of other things. After that, we managed to get the ink on paper. When I started to scold her she said, "I just want to stamp like Mimi!" Well, at least she knew which INK to use! ROTF!

I stamped with Onyx Black Versafine ink on watercolor paper, then colored with Tombow (water based) markers. I used the same layout, but changed the papers. You may recognize these from last night's post. Hey, they were still on my desk, and they worked! They are from the Penny Lane Feeling Groovy collection by My Mind's Eye. The ribbon is May Arts red grosgrain . The cardstock is Majestic Purple light, Candle Glow light, and Classic Red all from Prism Papers. Instead of a button, I added two Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest .

Well, the good news is that I'm off work tomorrow for President's Day! I hope to be stamping since I don't know how to do anything Presidential. Actually, that's not entirely true...I know how to spend $. Really, how much more presidential can you get?

Did you see the announcement that our own Cindy Motherway has now joined the SCS Dirty Dozen ??? Be sure stop by her blog to congratulate her. Better yet, why don't you go check out her work in the Fan Club Gallery ? Way to go, Cindy! I'm so happy for you!!!

Thanks for stopping by. I will be back soon.
