Doodle Charm

I am soooo in love with Doodle This and Doodle That! You will probably see lots of things done with these stamps over the next while.

While I was getting ready for my last stamp camp I was waiting for something to dry so I pulled out my Doodle This and stamped the flowers on a scrap piece of paper. I then colored the flowers with future floor polish and pearl ex. It is really hard to see in the picture but it is really shimmery in real life.

That piece sat on my desk for a couple of days (sorry Mom) until I saw my polyshrink in the back of my paper file and thought it would be fun to stamp the flower and shrink it. First I stamped it in StazOn and colored with a turquoise sharpie and then tried my Zig Painty for the first time.

The rest is pretty simple, I just used the doodles in the background on Cool Carribean and then tied ribbon around it and used gold cord to hang my charm on.

It is kind of a long story but I don't think I have taken that long to finish a card ever and had to share it with you.

I am so excited right now I can hardly stand it. I ordered some new toys from CompuPro and they will be in today. Joe is picking them up on his way home from work and I can't wait! Hopefully I can get some time in this weekend to play and when I do I will share it with you.

I am sitting surfing the web and debating on wether I should clean my house or at least empty the dishwasher that kiddos gets paid allowance for and reload with dirties.....OR.....Go play with the cuttlebug and bellas!?!?!?!

I wouldn't mind getting snowed in tomorrow. Ian has a b'day party to go to and I know he will have a blast so I am torn.
I just embossed a few pieces of CS and punched a flower and slide (thanks btw) but now I can't decide what to do.
Hopefully tomorrow I'll have something to share.
