Home for Christmas

One of the stamp sets I was happy to see in the new catalog was "Home for Christmas" this set was in a past mini catalog.  I love the whole rugged look of it and, well it is a great set to color.

Coloring it on our new Texture Cuts Wood Sheets was a little tough but it worked.   I don't know if I will color on them all the time, but it did make a nice effect, and it cut in the Big Shot lickety split.

The picture makes it hard to tell that it is stamped on wood.

DSCN8543 copy Here is a closer one, you can kinda see the wood grain, and then when I colored I tried to color with the grain.  I tried the markers, the aqua painter, and anything that has water just seemed to bleed into the cracks, I even tried a Copic marker (had to drag those out of my cupboard) and it bled too. So the pencils and oil worked the best, even though they didn't blend super well.

So tonight I was zipping the tv channels around and came upon Starsky and Hutch...the remake with Ben Stiller & Owen Wilson.  I loved that movie, they did an awesome job and the two were perfect in the roles.  I remember watching the tv show when it used to be on and I totally had a crush on Paul Michael Glaser. Who else did I have a crush on growing up...TV wise, Scott Baio when he was Chachi, Mickey Dolenz from the Monkees, Ringo from the Beatles, I am sure there were more. It is funny to think back.  I subscribed to Country Weekly a while ago, and then they stopped delivering them to the mailbox, so instead of refunding my money they finished my subscription with Star, I don't know half the people in the darned magazine.  I must be getting old.  Star is NO Country Weekly.

Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping in!
