Yes, I am a slacker. I spend so much time browsing other blogs and galleries that I don’t take the time to keep my own blog updated. Lousy excuse, I know, but it’s the only one I have. If any of you are still out there, thank you for hanging in there with me. I won’t make any rash promises about updating more frequently because I don’t like making promises I can’t keep.
I did take some time the other night and make some cards for Operation Write Home.
I found this design on the Hero Arts Flickr Group and fell in love immediately. I used different stamps and had to do it in more than one color, as usual.
Stamps – Hero Arts (flower), PaperTrey (sentiment), Cornish Heritage Farms (background). Ink – Hero Arts Poppy Chalk ink. Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White for flower centers.

Here is a close-up of the pearl pen on the flower centers – I love these pens. They are super easy to use and settle out into nicely rounded domes without any of the sharp tips that other dimensional paints can leave. I even colored some with a Copic marker and it didn’t seem to do any damage. These are straight out of the bottle, I didn’t add any color to them.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful week! I will be back soon with more, so don’t write me off just yet, ok?
