Well hello there!!!

My goodness!!  Has it really been over a month since I last posted???  I'm so sorry!  How are you guys!!  Are you still out there??  I hope I didn't make you all run away!  It's amazing how quickly the days go by and life keeps you busy.  I haven't done much stamping lately but plan to be doing a bit more in the next few weeks.  Maybe you guys read it on Jennie's post from last week but I went on a little trip to Vegas and got to meet Jennie in person!!  She's so nice and just as sweet in person as she is online!!  I just wish we had more time to spend together, our visit was WAY too short!!

Onto the post, although it's not A Muse, here's a card I made for my stepdad for his birthday this past weekend:

The inside says, "Happy Birthday Old Fart!"  LOL!!  This outhouse stamp is by PSX and I found it at a local thrift store a week or so ago!!  I had no idea why I bought the stamp and figured I was just crazy, but it made me giggle and I thought, for $1 I'll be able to put it to good use sometime.  I had no idea how soon I'd be using it! :D

Did you notice the roll of TP??? :D  I was so excited to try somethin clever with this stamp!  Here's a close up:

I wrapped some tp around a spiral (square) HPH clip.  The image is stamped on watercolor paper and colored in with markers and an Aquapainter.

Supplies used:
Stamps~ PSX Outhouse, All Night Media Wood Grain, Karen Foster Snap Stamps
Inks~ Memories Black Ink, SU markers (Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac, Summer Sun, Garden Green, Old Olive, Bashful Blue), Staedtler Black Fine Liner pen, Spica Clear glitter pen, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black and Close to Cocoa ink pads
Paper~ Watercolor, Lovely Lilac, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, toilet!! :D  LOL!
Accessories~ A Muse ribbon, Edge distressor, dimensionals, Antique Brass HPH, sponge daubers

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  I sure miss all of you and miss my stampin' time!!  I'm hoping to get myself back into the groove soon!! :D

Big hugs for all of you!
~Rhonda :D
