Happy Tuesday!

Pin It
Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I'm going to be running around most of the day today so looks like it may be Wednesday before I do the draw for the Blissful Brownies cookbook.

You can enter that drawing HERE!

I finally made it to JoAnns last night to look at the OTT lights. I ended up getting a light by Normande Lighting instead of OTT. My new lamp is still a daylight lamp and I noticed no difference between it and the OTT, except for a better price! I used a 40% off coupon so still got it on sale!
I can't find one online so I hope to get a picture of it later to post here. ...along with some adorable felt flowers I found in the $1 bins!

I also ran by Staples and got my $7 markers as shown in the post below!!

Happy Creating!

Happy Bird-day!

Pin It

This is for the color challenge from the Gina K release party.

His tummy and hat are covered in dazzling diamonds.
There is a self-adhesive rhinestone to the left of 'happy bird-day'.

I'm hoping to get up to Kennesaw to the big Jo-Ann's today. The OTT-LITEs are 40% off this week! I'm going to go that route for picture taking instead of a light tent at this point. The OTT will be a welcome addition to my stamp table for stamping and picture taking. Hoping to find a table top one similar to THIS.
Of course, this all depends on the storm that is moving in. Hope it's not a repeat of the tornado in downtown Atlanta last night!

ETA: No JoAnns today, weather kept us away. Maybe next week!

I used the scoring blade on my paper trimmer to score around the two white pieces and the dp piece.
I think I ~~need~~ a scor-pal! ;)
