Town home in marker and black pen

Hi there and welcome.

This is my second blog for 2017 which is going to be short and sweet. I just started back after a long hiatus and I thought I would start with this card.

Its done in Tim Holtz ranger markers - festive berries, squeezed lemonade, mowed lawn,shabby shutters, frayed burlap , also micron 005 and pigma graphic 1 archival ink pen.
The image is a digital one by tiddlyinks. They have such cute designs sometimes I wish I can own them all but obviously its not possible. Also I find that not alot of my customers like the cutesy cards. But the designs always make me smile.


The card is very simple as you can see here
I used the digital stamp 'town home'from their collection on buildings/backgrounds and I was just reminded of my art class many moons ago when I used to enjoy using the pen and ink technique and I just started... a little hesitant at first...still not yet fully confident but I enjoyed doing it and I thought I would share the result with you. Hope you like it and I hope it made you smile as you had a good memory while looking at it.

See you next time!


A long break

Hi there

I know you've all been wondering what's been happening with me. It's been almost a year that I haven't written a blog post. Doesn't mean I wasn't thinking about you all but I had family issues to deal with that required my attention and to me and I'm sure to everyone is very important!
What I have found is when you take an extended time off you not only lose your visitors to your blog but you kinda lose your way abit and its challenging to get back into the habit of posting again. I was toying with the ideas of starting a new blog or just not blogging at all but I thought about all the nonsense happening in our world and I said you know what.... we need more things out there that make people happy, make people smile, make people believe that happiness and peace of mind are still worth finding....and that's why I do what I do...I like to make people smile....
So here goes....I'm back! I may still take a break if it warrants it but I will try to make it shorter next time.
I want to thank those who have supported me in the past and to thank those who are now supporting me.
