Shopping Bliss!!

Hi Everyone,

I'm back with you today to share an image from Your Next Stamp called Shopping Bliss.  Did you know that Penny Johnson has joined the Team at Your Next Stamp?  Yes she has...I really enjoy her art so you will be seeing more stamps arriving in the store soon along with more coloured images coming up on my blog.  I coloured this lovely up with my Tombow's.  I almost feel like my Copic's are sadly missing me these days.  Not to worry though I will have some Copic work coming up soon.


 Tombow's:  528,703,985,969,743,991,076,098,N60,942,873,N95,491,N65,N45,373,443,850

I coloured in the boots with a Black Glaze Pen to give them some shine and dimension, I did the same to her belt on the jacket.  The Riviera Memory Die was cut up so I could place the pieces on the card as I desired, I really like doing that with many of my die cuts.

Happy Mail!!

Hi Everyone,

Today I have a lovely image from Wild Rose for you called Bella At Door.  I have been working with my Tombow's lately, a change is always nice.  I originally thought that this little cutie could be turned into a little Happy Mail for my brother who just had surgery but NOPE that didn't happen.  I will be back to the drawing board on a card for him.  I'm certain he wouldn't want a frilly card LOL!  So I think this one will eventually be sent out to my Mom because she loves to get a card in the mail.


I totally had a blast making the rose with the McGill punches we recently received in the store.  The little flowers are done with the EK punches.  The border die is one of my new fav's from Whimsy.  Of course I had to put a ton of bling on the card, I love to bling up everything.  When I add my rhinestones to my cards I always put a dab of glue down first.  I find that no matter how good the self adhesive items are over time they seem to fall to avoid missing gems I add a spot of glue.  The colours on my coloured image are totally inspired by the sample provided by Wild Rose on the package, which you can see below.  Just a note:  McGill offers amazing How To's on their website which is where I learned how to make the rose.

Tombow's:  076,985,676,723,761,850,N65,N45,098,N95,N55,623

Welcome Friends!!!!!


Thank you for coming to visit the OCS Blog Hop featuring High Hopes Christmas Release!

I know what you are thinking....gosh where has Lora been...well at least I hope you were thinking that!  Well here I am & WELCOME to the our Blog Hop featuring the NEW release of Christmas images from one of my personal fav companies High Hopes!

So I want to start with my little story.  I took 1 day off this summer which was Sept. 1st and my hubby and I took our daughter to see Karen & Guy at High Hopes.  Okay it was really more of a fun day for me, not to mention my hubby did the 2 hours worth of driving.  But while the boys took Emilee to play mini putt putt, Karen taught me how to colour with Tombow's.  Now I have been the proud owner of a full set of Tombow's for at least 6 years, I did give them to my daughter when I got my Copic's.  Well several week's ago I took them back....can you believe that, what a terrible thing to do eah!  It was all good Emilee didn't mind at all.  So back to the colouring part...I did not want to learn these Tombow marker things....UNTIL NOW!  Karen's is one of the BEST people I know with a Tombow marker in her hand.  Her work is just amazing.  So who better than that to teach me...right!  Well teach me she did I am in LOVE with them now!

So I was able to look through some of the stuff Karen had all coloured up and ready to go and I was to copy the colouring that she did.  I went right for Making Friends because I love him AND he was coloured with purple, which I love too. 

Karen had created this awesome page for her calendar and this is it:


Now here is what I did.  I used all the same colours of Tombow's which are listed below, but I made a card with mine.



Tombow's:  636, 623, 528, N60, 847, 837, 946, 977, N25, N75

Other Supplies:  Patterned Paper Bauble Delight Fab Scraps, Bazzill Purple & White, Snowflake Punch by Martha Stewart, Pastel Violet Chalk Edger, Heavenly H20, Glitter Fairy Dust, Misc. Ribbon
