From the heart!

Coloring is such a soothing thing for me! When I'm stressed or just plain exhausted, I can pick up my markers and sit for hours coloring.

This image by Whipper Snapper is one of my favorites. It's the perfect size for shading and the the bigger flowers are what I call "non-specific", meaning I can make them any color I want to. For this card, I pulled some scraps out of my ever growing scrap bin (sheesh, I have GOT to do something about that), and colored the flowers to match the floral paper.

So, what do I have to be stressed about you ask? My friend Paula and I are having our annual Rubber Reduction sale this Friday/Saturday. So every night I am digging through drawers and pulling things off shelves and all around PURGING! LOL! It really does feel good to see some empty spaces on my shelf (and yes, it won't take me long to put something new in that place. lol)

Our sale is purely rubber stamps and scrapbook supplies. We've been doing this for the last 4 years or so and it's fun to watch the women waiting in their cars for the garage door to open.

Well... I better get busy! I haven't started to label things yet and it's already Wednesday! YIKES!!

Hope the sun shines on you today!

You know, I almost didn't submit that image to Whipper Snapper, not sure that I was pleased with it. After I see cards like yours, I know I made the right decision by sending it in. Seeing it colored makes all the difference! You've done a LOVELY job! Just gorgeous!! -Anna.
