Short Mondays, Please!

In reality, there are many days when I could also agree with 'short mornings'.   😉   This little pooch just couldn't wait for a trip over to the coffee shop, so he's grateful for a cuppa now.

The 'What the Froth' stamp set from The Cats Pajamas Rubber Stamps includes fun sentiments, little extras, and a total of 3 caffeine-needy critters to love.  It's hard to choose where to start.  Coffee lovers unite!

This setting was created with one of the splatter images from the  TCP 'Watercolor Basics' set, using Distress Oxide inks.  Once the splatters were in place, exact placement of the sentiment was quick & easy with my Misti.  

New things to love coming up!   Our favorite stamp & paper crafting companies are busy putting the finishing touches on their wholesale trade booths for 'Creativation 2019' as they look forward to their new product reveals starting tomorrow, Jan. 17.  Join me in looking for fun peeks & videos over the next few days as we see the next fun items to add to our wish lists.   Get your note pads ready!   

Inky (((hugs))),

To Putt-putt or to Soar?

Happy 2019, everyone!
Whoa ... that last year went by in a flash!  Have you ever noticed that school kids never say that?  While I did stamp a bit last year, I kept it all to just personal stampy needs, plus simple rearranging plans, trimming, adding, & replacing some time blocks, etc.  

My first 2019 project to share with you features stamps from The Cat's Pajamas.  Have you been smitten by their adorable, yet timeless bunny?  

Today, bunny is putt-putting around in his airplane, enjoying an unseasonably nice day in winter, just perfect for an enjoyable flight.    He's just like us ... loves a good no-agenda day to do as he wishes.   When not up in the air, find him in the Ready for Take-off stamp set. 

For a fun background, white pigment ink was used to repeatedly stamp one of the cool brush-strokes stamps from TCP's Watercolor Basics.  Since Christmas reds & greens need a little rest for now, I fell back on a softly fun version of a favorite color combo with a light turquoise & soft mint color for the card itself.   Whoa ... I just thought of a way to let this stamp play again for a Valentine ... shhhhh!  

Welcome to the last year in this decade, stampy friends!  

Inky hugggsss,
