Practically Perfect Grandbaby Girl

On January 28th, we welcomed the newest addition to Cook Family, Montclair. What a golden opportunity to play with Digital Delights' Little Dumplin' set. The full tutorial is on the Digital Delights blog. I especially enjoyed playlng with my SparkleNSprinkle flocking (first time I've tried) and glitter. Of course, after I did the flocking I checked out the how-to instruction on the SparkleNSprinkle website and discovered it was supposed to be opaque! But I WANTED the pink to show through on the stork. I wonder if I got the transparent effect because I watered down my glue a bit in order to be frugal? (Hey! We gotta start somewhere, don't we?). Regardless, I like the way it turned out. Even moreso, I love the way the our grandbaby girl turned out. Quite by accident, my next tutorial is almost ready . . . I can't wait to share that one with you. After all, doesn't everyone deserve a little fantasy in their lives?

Gatefold Valentine

Yeah, yeah, I know that Valentine's Day was eight days ago, but love is never out of season, now isit? I can't believe this month is almost over!

I want to be sure and share this cute hybrid card I prepared for Digital Delights by Louby Lou -- one of my favorite places to find digital stamps. Uh, and "yes" she did get this card before Valentien's day!

For my complete tutorial, just drop by the Digitial Delights website for a peek. I particularly enjoyed playing with my Copic markers and my SparkleNSprinkle glitters. I especially enjoyed Polly Pippin in Love, the little mouse we find inside the heart. The black dotted paper is from Close To My Heart's Sweetheart Collection (visit my website to see these enchanting papers) too see how easy it is to have the product sent right to your home.

So, what have we learned? The heart holiday may be over for another year, but love lasts forever!
