Hello everybody - I'm Marge Dady, another new member of the Crafter's Companion 2012 Design Team. I've been stamping for over a decade - I can't even begin to say how stamping has enriched my life with not only a creative outlet, but with the opportunity for friendships with some really wonderful women. You can learn more about me and my obsession(s) on my blog.
I wanted to share this gorgeous image of a dog and his little suitcase, which is the "Gorgeous" set from the new Strawberry Kisses line. For this cute image, I dusted off my colored pencils, which I'll confess I haven't been inspired to use for over a year. Don't these images showcase your coloring to a tee?
This little pooch looked all set for a road trip - so I had the idea to use an old road map for the background. Once I started, I couldn't stop, so I'm sharing two variations on the travel theme with you today. The trunk of my car is now short one Illinois road map, but hey, it was from 1989 anyway.
I wanted one of these to be a Bon Voyage type of card -- so I took the words "Flower Power" from the set with the adorable kitty in the flowerpot that you saw a few days ago from Tracy -- and cut out the letters for "explore". Wait, no "x" in Flower Power you say? Not to worry, take the stem from two of the "r's" and criss-cross them. Nothing will stop a determined crafter!
Hope you enjoyed these, and perhaps you'll be off on a hunt for crafting supplies in your own car, soon!
See you here next week -- Marge Dady
