Just touching base, I'm still in Slovakia, we are leaving for Poland tomorrow. I have several things colored and ready to go but, I have no paper and there is NOWHERE to buy any !!!!!
I brought my copics some prestamped things to color and very little paper and dbl sided tape. Had I known I would have brought more. I,ve been to Vienna, Poland and Slovakia and no scrapbooking stuff or LSS anywhere!
I'm down to looking at gift wrap and thats pretty measly too. More later

Diane Duda

These are all from Diane Dudas stamps available at Funky kits . I LOVE these stamps! I'm using my nieces boyfriends mac and I have no idea how to crop these or fix the photos.
These are a few of the cards I've made while in Slovakia. Now, mind you I only had access to 6 or 7 papers! And there is NO where to buy any here so, they're alittle simpler then normal but, they were fun to make. I colored them all in with my copics and added alittle sparkle with my Spica pens! I actually colored these on the plane trip and everyone got up to come watch me was really funny. I had just gotten this new set and I couldn't wait to get them inked up, then when I got here I was able to sit down and make cards with them, I can't wait for new ones from Diane Duda.


I'm in Slovakia visiting my niece, I'm hoping to get some cards up soon! The weather here is very hot and humid with thunder and lightening storms now and again. I drove one of their cars from Poland to here in the dark, rain and some patches of fog.
Hope to post again soon.

Scrapbook News and Review Bloghop!

Happy 4th of July and welcome to Scrapbook News and Review " Oh Say Can You See 4th of July Bloghop!" To Start this blog and be able to follow it all the way thru you need to start here.

I've created my Red, White and Blue card using a Keeto Stamp from Stampin Bella . If your

Her name is Kenya and she has her sparkler all ready to celebrate! I colored her in with my Copic Markers and then highlighted her with Atyou Spica Glitter pens, if you have not tried these they are awesome! I took some ribbon and created a bow and used glue dots to "hold" the ribbon where I wanted it to...sort of like a flag waving in the breeze! I added some red and blue sparklee Petaloo Flowers. I tore my red paper to give it a more casual look.

My technique I would like to share with you is what I've been working on, trying to learn more about my copics. I cut everything out with my cricut on white paper and color in my card! If you look in my May folder look at the Life is a Beach card, I used that technique. I even added real sand to the bottom, topped it with Glossy Accents to look wet! It's quite fun once you try it, it can be quite addictive. Hope you at least give it a try....

Now, you need to hop to Karolyn Loncon's blog to continue on ....have fun and thanks for visiting!
