happy


i had some time (in between laundry lessons) to do a little stamping. i bought this clear Wordsworth stamp set (like a week ago) at AC Moore with my coupon - such a deal - this word plus a number of smaller words (like birthday, halloween etc) - for like $5.00. Anyway I wanted to give it a try today. I stamped it a few times on white and thought gee what would it look like if I masked it and did a background? I made a mask with postits and then stamped all over with a Purple Onion Doodle Flower set. Since I was in the mood to color I had a grand old time coloring everything in - with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. I'm going to send this to a friend I think might need a little "happy" right now. This afternoon we're sending our daughter off on her adventure. I'll let you know all about it.

I love this...it's totally Tracy, and I LOVE Tracy! I love purple & green together (like my 3 flowers card I posted yesterday that you saw!)

Looking forward to hearing about Eliz's adventure and how the laundry lessons went.

oh yeah: 'cause i'm not the marvelous TRACY!!!!!!!!
