D1436 The Present, C1423 Captured moments

These first items are little corner bookmarks that I have been working on today they are simple to make and take no time. I have been seeing these around lately and decided to give them a try. They are going to make cute little gifts. I got directions from the resource section over at SCS, I did mine a little smaller than theirs. I think they came out okay.

Okay so I now own a pink ATG gun, this is so cool, no I am not gettin rid of the glue glider pro, I just won't used so much. This Atg has 36yds instead of 40 ft, which means I will be crafting longer before refilling, the pink Atg is light even though it looks like it might be heavy, its not, and the tape just flows off so easy, Tam found a place to get these that they were cheaper so we got them, that girl can find the deals online, we had to decorate them, Tam blinged hers up yesterday, I had to figure which dragonlfies I was gonna put on mine. these are temp till i can get more vinyl to cut them out with my cricut.

Random stamping

Good evening everyone just a few new things to show you . I needed to make some Thank you cards and they had to have dragonflies on them, so I did some random stamping of dragonflies and then colored each one using copic markers. This is what the finnished page looked like before I cut it up.

This is just a close up of the dragonflies.

Next I used a stamp from the 2010 Convention set that looked like a water splash and made more B&T, I did this using White daisy but as you will see I also did color on color using dutch blue
