Be Who You Are

Too Many deadlines. I can say no more.
Keep it simple and still enjoy the process.
A bear trashed my bird feeder and now the computer is giving me signs of illness.

The flourished bat is my favorite new stamp,and I also like this sentiment about Grandmothers. Both are from the  new Wicked collection.
The theme this week in the Created Byhand Challenge is Only Angles/ Squares and Rectangles.
The themes are just guidelines to get your creative inks flowing.
This scan doesn't show the squarish stamping in the background-remember shadow stamps? I stamped the quote and bats in black and thermal embossed in black. I tore out the rectangle and outlined with Distress black soot. I colored the heart in with a glaze pen.
I sprayed the whole thing with Perfect Pearls Mist-just pearl, no color- kind of spooky.
Nothing spooky about my Grandmothers hearts. they helped me to be whoever I wanted to be everyday of the year.
Thanks for your comments- any questions, leave one, and all thoughts of Grandmothers are welcomed.


  1. This is my first Halloween without my grandmother, and sadly, with my work schedule, I don't even remember if I saw her last Halloween. I really like your card. :)


I love comments,constructive criticism, suggestions and RAK.
