Budgie Cage & Sale at Alpha Stamps ends TONIGHT!

Just got back from Girls Camp and it was incredible! Wanted to do a quick post to show you this budgie cage I made using Alpha Stamps products that are on sale until TONIGHT! Head over and check out the blog post:

I used my very favorite Alpha Stamps collage sheet, Parrots, for this piece. Click that link to see what else I used and where you can find it!

I hope everyone had an awesome week! I did :)

Pet Portraits: Kitties Banner in a Matchbox

I made these a while ago for a wonderful swap with Leslie of Leslie's Art and Sew. They are little acrylic pet portrait paintings of her four kitties!
 I had a lot of fun painting each of her cats, they are all super good-looking cats. The backgrounds are made with Tim Holtz distress paints... I think I'm addicted to those, pretty much.
 Anyway, I hope everybody has a great weekend! Mine will be filled with hard work getting the chicken coop ready for the peeps.

They are growing...and eating...and much. They are turning out to be very sweet little birdies, though, especially Yum Yum. She's also the biggest!

Bathing Beauties! Fun Sea Shapes

I can't BELIEVE I haven't posted in so long! Well...there has been plenty going on. Bobby and I bought a house and we have been moving in and doing the metric-buttloads of things that go along with getting into a new place. I am exhausted... But I love out new property :)

I should have shared this last week, but alas. It's still summer, so it's still good. I made these three wall hangings from some brand new sea-themed die cut shapes from Alpha Stamps. (Read more about the Seaside Sirens Kit and all the fantabulous products here)

I hope everybody had an awesome Fourth of July! Ours was suuuper rainy and filled with moving boxes :P
