Quite Time 2013

I want to tell you how excited I am to be a Guest Designed for Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD) and to be part of this blog hop. We are introducing this floral inspired rubber stamps called “POPPY POD”.

Quite Time 2013  r

Today Susana Loves Stamps is releasing another new round of these unique, fresh and edgy rubber stamps due to the response we got to the premier MechAnimals stamps. Along with the new MechAnimals there are some fabulous new Far East and floral inspired rubber stamps being released today as well. SCACD Digital is also releasing today a fun little gaggle of digital ghoulies that scream fun and sweetness. You can check them out HERE!  Our International friends can get these at Quixotic Paperie for the stamps here-

This stamped image was so much fun to color. The image is called “No Mixed Signals”. Stamped it with Memento tuxedo black ink on Cryogen paper. Distressed the edges and also ripped the paper.

Hi, Patricia. These are so adorable, Hun. I always enjoy seeing your pretty artwork.

I hope your SIL is ok, you can count on me for happy thoughts and prayers. My youngest son, DIL, and two grandkids live in College Station not too far from Austin. So I hope your stay is bright sunny and warm. The colors and temps are changing to Autumn here in CO. Have safe travels home my friend.

Susanna is lucky to have you Pat! Your cards are always exceptional, your color choices are wonderful and there are not many people out there that can color nearly as well as you.
Hope everything continues to go well and you go back home as soon as possible.
