Inky Fingers Sunday

It's just one of those weekends when I'm inspired to stamp. I joined an ATC swap (which I started and finished last night); and decided that I'd better wake up my stamping mojo before I got on a roll with making Christmas cards - which is just around the corner believe it or not. If you stamp, you know what I mean. This Sweet 'n' Sassy stamp hasn't seen ink in probably four years. Yikes! I couldn't believe that after all of these years my Adirondack ink pad was still juicy - as were my Copic markers. I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Whiff of Joy, The Angel Company (sentiment)
Paper: Cardstock by Archivers, Paper by My Minds Eye
Accessories: Martha Steward border punch, prima flowers, spacer beads, twine, copic markers, diamond glaze (to adhere the spacer beads to the primas)

Ruffle Scarves

I discovered a new yarn called Ruffle Yarn. It's so cool! It looks like regular yarn when it's on the skein; but once you unravel it, it looks like netting. I went on YouTube and learned how to knit a simple ruffle yarn scarf. This yarn for this blue scarf is called Starbella. I believe there are 18 different colors. It took just three hours to complete one scarf. So simple and yet so cute when it's all finished. The yarn is also very soft and it drapes beautifully.
This is a closeup of the ruffles.
I started on a red scarf for my son's friend.
This is a closeup of what the yarn looks like when you open it up.

7Gypsies Artist Printer's Tray Photo Collage

Been a little under the weather this past week. I ended up not going to work for a few days to avoid 'infecting' my coworkers with what I have. "What" exactly it is could be a mix between allergies and a full-blown cold. All I know is that I've made the makers of Dayquil, Nyquil, Claritin and Kleenex very rich. I decided to craft a little and made this Artist Printer's Tray collage for my husband's desk at work. I added a few gears to give it a little 'steampunk' look. I didn't want to overdo it since it is going on a desk at work.
The papers I used were by 7Gypsies and Graphic 45. The embellishments are by Tim Holtz and Paper Studio.
I love this clock. The hands do turn, but I think we'll keep it at 5:00 since it's always five o'clock somewhere.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day!
