The week has flown, hasn't it? And, here I am once again with another round of Rhonda's stampy goodness! Here's a little more from Rhonda:
- Biggest challenge – Raising kids. Knowing that I’m responsible for their actions and that the things I do affect their whole life, especially since I don’t always know the right way to handle each situation that arises. I’m learning right along with them.
- First stamp – Gosh, my very first stamp was probably a set from Stampin’ Up, I’m thinking Definitely Decorative Fabulous Fruits (the old foam mounted ones from the ’97-’98 catalog!!) My first A Muse stamps were bought together about 4 years ago: Pea Pod, Fishes and Best Fishes.
- Can’t live without – My Family and friends. Stamp related? A good black ink that doesn’t bleed when colored with. My 3 faves are Memento Tuxedo Black, A Muse Black Dye Ink, and Palette Hybrid Noir.
- Favorite product – Too hard to choose one fave. I LOVE my A Muse Twinkle Stickers and Judikins retractable craft knife to place them with. Use them often!!
- Climate – Being a Seattle girl, I like mild weather, not too hot, not too cold. Mid 70’s are ideal for me!
- Last purchase – A Muse stamps of course!!
When Rhonda mentioned her greatest challenge being parenthood, I had to smile as I'm sure many of us can absolutely related to that!
Now, I hope you have a nice cuppa, to enjoy with these designs:
You may not be able to tell, but Rhonda punched a circle from our Clear Circle Stickers to custom fit over the top of the Gumball Machine! It was such a clever touch to accent the metal parts of the machine with a Silver Spica Glitter Pen. And, I just love the little paper flowers on the left, with tiny pearl stickers embellishing the centers.
In this design, Rhonda did a little bit of snipping, to paper piece the Love Birds, and the Bird Cage--I love the dotted line she drew to represent a chain or chord for the cage to hang from. Couldn't tell from the card that the Twinkle Stickers are one of her favorite things, eh?! *wink*
No, your eyes do not deceive you! Rhonda fashioned a ginormous chocolate kiss using household aluminum foil. French Roast is such a luscious and rich color, that you might not see it, but, she used the new Chocolate Assortment stamp to do the background. I love how realistic this whole design turned out!
Admit it--you can't look at this and not bust out singin' tha song, can you?! *grin*
Aren't these each so fun? And, you're gonna have that song stuck in your head all day long, aren't ya''?
*chuckle* Well, while you're rockin' out, be sure to leave a comment here for Rhonda (one only please, per guest designer article,) to enter your name into the drawing at the end of Rhonda's series with us!
Have a fab day!
