This is a Vol.25 Jessica Rose hanging block stamp called Winter Clothes hanging block. I think it looks like a winter store window display with the little awning I created and it will make a good card for my Christmas stash. Don't know about you, but I really like these hanging block stamps. Winter clothes as always, was stamped with brilliance ink on Bella's Bestest paper and coloured with copic markers. Very little pencil went into the shading here, I coloured it with the following copic markers.

Today I took the day off work to recoup from our annual steak/lobster BBQ with my side of the family....we have a small family so can splurge on this treat once a year. It was not a picture perfect day...just as we were about to sit outside for dinner the rain gods dumped torrential water from the sky! We did need the rain, but it would have been nice if it could have waited just one more hour.
I have been prepping the deck all summer for this event and this is what a part of it looked like last week....how pretty is this and how perfect it would have been to sit out there under the umbrella's, sip some wine and indulge in blackened filet and lobster tail! Last year it was so cold we had to light a fire in the fire pit just to stay warm. Oh the joys of weather in Southwestern Ontario....just never know what you will get. But I have to say, even with the wicked humidity, I'd take this hot summer over last years cool one any day.
Well...it is like 3pm and I haven't even had a shower yet! I've made my card for Friday's challenge...remember, it's a sketch and you can find it this post and I've cut paper and stamped images for Wednesday's pickle class....beware girls....I've discovered that the wrist can manage a single image, but doing several repetitively is a bit more straining than I anticipated so the images might not be quite as crisp as usual.
Now I think I'll go get that shower and decide what to make for dinner, oh how I could get used to the life of a stay at home kept woman!
