This is a new card I made last weekend at Johanna's. I love the submarine stamp. I've seen other design team members use the submarine stamp to make, helicopters, hot air balloons and blimps. Oh, and submarines, of course!
For this card, I used the submarine, full moon orange, flames, Lale right and Lale left, and space helmet left and right. I paper-pieced each part and then I colored the bands on the submarine/rocket with my Prismas. I think I will add some 3D lacquer on the helmets and then I will be done.
I've been busy working on a secret project. I think you might be seeing it in a few weeks. I'm also working on my Peeps Easter bonnet.

Over at Card Positioning Systems, they have a weekly sketch. Did you know that? I admit, I forget sometimes. Other times, I just can't think of something to do for the sketch, but this time, I just KNEW whatI wanted to do. I used Michelle's Big Scroll for the bottom and then the Paisley Heart. I colored in the scroll and the heart with Prismas. (Oops! I forgot to ist the colors I used. Sorry Patty!) I used PeeWee left and right for the top and added a small paper flower. I outlined the bottom section with my Stickles. This card is 5x5.

I colored this image with Prismacolor pencils. No gamsol, no blenders of any kind. I just blend color on color on color. And then more color. And then I shade and then blend more color. The card is 6x6 overall. I hardly ever make cards this big so this was fun. Just layer upon layer of paper. The sentiment is from Great Impressions.

I also tried something new here. I picked up a gray Tombow marker at the last rubber stamp expo. I've seen lots of card artists use it to give the image definition and shadow. I don't know that I succeeded in doing either of those things, but I tried.
Thanks for looking at my stuff. BTW, do you know where you can get House Mouse stamps at a great price? Right here. Dick is a great guy and he runs a tight ship over there. Well, I don't really know how tight his ship is. I'm afraid to ask. Anyhow, visit his store. He'll treat you right.

I am doing the happy dance! Cheeto is home!!
I had convinced myself that he was gone forever, and then what did he do but show up at the back door tonight. He came inside and went straight to the food dish. He is thinner and he is very, very thirsty and hungry. He must've been locked in someone's garage like I initially thought.
After he gorged himself, he came and sat up on my lap and let me give him lots of ear scritches and head rubs. He purred and purred. I was so happy he was home that John hugged me while I cried.
Thank you all for your prayers. I know it helped bring him home. I know I kinda made fun of St. Joseph last night, but on a previous post, ~missprissme told me a prayer to St. Anthony and I recited it. Many times. I am not a religious person, but I believe that the powers that be know when you ask for something with all your heart. Thank you with all my heart.
I think I will let Cheeto sleep on the bed tonight.
