Art, Inspire and Create!!!

If you are looking to join this weeks Going Grey with Scrap-creations challenge, Please scroll Down :)

Happy Tuesday!!!! Hope you are enjoying your week.  I am happy to report that my crafting MOJO iis BACK!!! Amazing what free time will do for a girl.  I have decided to explore some new styles of stamping and creating. I am trying to play outside me "cutesy" box!  Today I have made a card for this weeks Stampotique originals "sentiments" challenge, as well as this weeks ttp://www.cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.ca/ sketch challenge, which is being sponsored by Stampotique.  As I am trying some new style stamps and techniques, I have found so many amazing altered artisit out there.....JEALOUS!!!! Anyway, I decided to try new things, but with "my style"....LOL....As you can see, I couldn't let the DP go, and I hate to admit it, but I have no idea how to use alcohol inks, and other materials. So, tomorrow I am headed to my LSS to take a class and will do so to with hopes of learning some new techniques 

I made this card for Mary Catonquay's daughter Nicole, whom has just started in the world of crafting, and she is already sooo amazing. I am hoping she will start a blog to share her work...So, Happy Birthday Nicole....I hope it's a great one.

As I was making the card for Nicole, I decided it would also make a great Journal page....So, Here it is my journal page for my smash book.  As my kids would say "it's wierd", but you know what, I LOVE IT!!!!  Simple, yet different.....  I used my copics to color and then a pencil to add the dots of color in the back ground. Again, trying new things.  Well, that is all I have today. I hope you have a fabulous weekend.  Laters!!!
