Calendar Photos

Ok. I finally got around to taking some pictures of the new calendar.

I am really happy with how they turned out... I love the simple cute designs... something different from the usual distress collage on the past calendars.

These will be delivered to the Muse tomorrow and the rest will go out to art partners by next week!

Short work day today... got a lot to fit in! Have a great day!

Fall Fest Time!

This past weekend we went out to Shenandoah to a place called LONG BRANCH farm for a wonderful Hot Air Balloon Festival.

Gorgeous Views!!!

This was as close to any hot air balloons as we got that day... beautiful either way!

It was gorgeous weather outside... just crisp enough to be fall and sunny! It was a bit windy... which in the end made it difficult for the balloons to launch. So that was canceled... bummer.
But it was still an awesome day!New Friends!

We played with animals, ate great festival food and drinks (kudos to the 1st Thai vendor - very fresh and hot food!), entertaining shows and wonderful family and friends!
I will definitely be looking at tickets for next year!

Now we are settled back at home, it's back to business! I spent the whole day yesterday making new calendars... these have a different look to them. More "Japanese" in style. I will post pictures when they are finished. I am shooting for Muse delivery by Thursday and the other stores by the end of next week.

Found this giant hole in this tree... Amazing!

Well. I hope you had a nice weekend too! Have a fantastic week and see you soon!

Fall Scarecrow Card

Just a quick post today...
This week I did a few things. I helped Stacie prepare for a show she is having in Annapolis next weekend and I made more Halloween and Fall cards.
This Scarecrow card is a Stampin Up image and I used a masking technique to layer images on top of another. I love those Copic markers for blending and shading...
This card will be at the Muse by the end of today.
(as well as several Halloween cards!)
I ordered several new stamp sets for new cards which should arrive next week! I can't wait!!!
Hope you all have a great weekend. See you next week!

Anniversary Cards feat. Cranes

Quick post today...

Today I am working on Anniversary and Wedding cards. Here's one listed today.
It features Asian Cranes (which symbolize peace) and are blended with alcohol inks.

Sometime soon I will start on new baby cards. All will be available on line and at stores (the Muse and Art Partners, Inc) within a couple weeks.
