Cowboys and Aliens

So we haven't seen it yet (it's on the list), but here's a great story about some folks trying to win (and succeeding!) tickets to the premiere of Cowboys & Aliens at Comic-Con. And a contest to win some great swag (are you kidding, a t-shirt with Daniel Craig on it??? oh my...).

Looking forward to seeing the movie soon (at least it will be cool inside the theater! crazy summer heat ...)

Back to making cards

Summer's here, the schedule has lightened up a little, and I have more time for cards. Here's a simple one I did for the June sketch challenge at RubberStampChat:

Not much to it - I love that image from OnyxXpressions, and thought it went well with the yuzen papers.
I also did one for the Steampunk challenge at Oxford Impressions, but I forgot to scan it before I mailed it in!

Online painting class from Julie Prichard

So I've been taking one of Julie's classes, Art Journaling Super Nova, which is fantastic. Her latest class, with Chris Cozen, is on mixed media painting and she's offering a chance to win a spot in it (or any of her classes) in this blog post

I've learned so much from the Super Nova classes, and highly recommend anything that Julie does!

I'll be making a card for this young girl later in the week:


Check out the Spread the Love blog hop and send a little cheer to this family.

chance at some faboo blog candy!

I found out about this through the Starving Artistamp blog: Jenn McMillan has a fabulous haul of stuff she's giving away as blog candy to celebrate finding out the gender of her baby. Check it out:


Congratulations to Jenn and her husband!

More freakin' cute stamps from Starving Artistamps and blog candy to boot!

I don't know how they keep doing it, but those Starving Artistamps folks have done it again - another wickedly cute set of DoodleFactory stamps called Costume Party. This is a must-have set for Halloween cards (or if you're like me and you really like ghoulish-ly cute stamps, it's just a must-have set). Check out their blog for details on the new release and the blog candy:
