TLC445 You are Truly a Blessing

Hello everyone.....hope all is well with you!!! Things have been a little crazy around here....we finally finished all the painting so I can get back in the craft room!!! My hubs decided we were finished because he wanted to go fishing....I know where his priorities are.....LOL!!!!  So he went fishing Friday morning and I stayed home to clean up the mess....what's wrong with this picture???? Don't worry...I have a honey do list for him when he gets home tonight....yeaaa me!!!!! OK, enough of my complaining....lets talk stamping!!!

It's my turn to host the TLC challenge on Splitcoast this week and before we get to the challenge.....Judy and I have some exciting news!! We are going to add some awesome designers to our little DT group....however, you will have to wait one more week to find out who they are!! I know, I am such a tease....LOL!!! You will have to wait till next week and then Judy will fill you in on all the details!!!!

I do have something I can tell you....Judy and I will be revisiting an old TLC once a month. We could be following the challenge as it's written or changing things up just a little and September is my month....Whoohoo!!!!  Soooooo

We are going to revisit TLC133...Make a Little Gamsol Magic. I am going to put a twist on the challenge, though. Here are the deets:

1. You can use Gamsol or Baby Oil with your colored pencils
2. Don't have colored pencils?? You can use any markers you want....I'm easy!!!!
3. You can use Stampin Up! markers, Distress Markers, Copics, Promarkers....what ever you have to color something fabulous!!!

I used Copics to color the sweet little poppies from Sweet n Sassy's Precious Poppies set...the sentiment is from the same set and the seam binding finishes it off. The background paper came from my stash so I don't know who it belongs to.

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day and I will be by to see all my blogging friends tomorrow!!!
