The "Lunker"

Alright this has nothing to do with stamping or TAC but this is an 8 1/2 pound rainbow trout caught at Montauk State Park in Missouri and let me tell you my DH was one proud man as you can tell from the picture. In error I called it his Klunker and was immediately corrected to Lunker.This "prize" is in the process of being mounted so he can hang it in his "man cave". Do you have any idea how much it costs to mount a fish - how about $300. I said that it has nothing to do with stamping well indirectly it long as the man is happy so am I and while the man is away the girl will play - that is stamping, shopping, eating popcorn for supper, going to bed at 8:30 and reading. Next week is TAC seminar and guess who is going fishing again???

Coloring cupcakes

I am in a stamp club that meets monthly and this month the group asked me to "teach" them how to color with colored pencils and mineral spirits. I thought the cupcakes were a great image to play with coloring so I used the two sets TAC has and here are some samples I made up. Tell me what you think???

Altered Cigar Box

This is just a "teaser" post - okay got you wondering now don't I?? Anyway this is an altered cigar box I made a while back. My BFF Pat and I took a class at a fun, really great scrapbook shop in St. Louis, For Keeps Sake Scrapbook Store There is no TAC product used in THIS one but... The picture is of my mother - it just seemed to suit the decor of the box. I will soon be posting another altered piece of art but not until after TAC seminar, so you will just have to wait and see!! Hmmm - wonder what all the clutter on my work table might be???
