This was my anniversary card to my darling husband Jim. On Wednesday it was our 9th anniversary. I can honestly say that they have been some of the happiest years of my life. I made him a lovely dinner of steak, grilled asparagus w/sea salt and twice baked potatoes. Then we had fresh homemade blueberry pie for dessert. As I have been extremely mushy so far I will continue in that vein. We are extremely blessed to have found each other and I thank God for it everyday. Okay enough of the mush. I hate to say it but I cannot remember for the life of me who made this stamp. Update: The Stamp is by Magenta Hmph. It's really nice though so if you know tell and I'll give them proper credit. I coloured with copics and then over-sprayed with vanilla Smooch Spritz. It's in the new Stampin Up catalogue.

I found this super site called Copic Munkies. They showed how to make a copic journal. This little journal has printed charts which you can find on the site. They have charts for marker inventory, custom colours, etc. It's pretty cool. I used my Bind it All to make the book and I printed the pages out on cardstock so I can colour right inside the book with the actual paper I use with my copics. The brand is called Hammermill. I've had this Daisy D's paper that I used to cover my journal for ages. I was hoarding it. I'm a craft supply hoarder. Isn't there an anonymous group for that? Also check out this site Michelle's MBellishments She's got some great ideas for this copic journal too.
I got those rhinestone embellishments at the dollar store. Dollar store!!!! I paid $7 for one of these on a scrapbooking site. Holy crap. Needless to say I now buy them from the dollar store. Oh yeah, the bird's name is Frank.

Here is the birthday card I made for my husband Jim. He loves embossing so I embossed leaves on the background with silver EP. They I rubbed inks onto the surface. I used pale plum, so saffron and old olive. I used this stamp from the June KOTM. I love that stamp. I embossed it as well and used the same technique and inks as I did on the background. I added stickles to the sun rays. I also used the new damask embossing folder from Stampin' Up. Wow does that thing emboss deeply. It's quite impressive. (no pun intended) (I'm lying, pun intended!)

Just a quick little post to show you some new organization in my office. Inspired by Stephanie, purchased at Ikea, Jim put these little pots up for me today. My desktop looks a little more organized. Funny how just moving things around a bit makes things look so much roomier.
