Here are a few pics from Abby's Little house on the Prairie birthday party. She turned 9. They decorated a muslin tablecloth with fabric markers, made yoyo flowers and had Little house names on all of the cupcakes and had a quiz that was so much fun. :)

I just love Shady tree studio stamps. These beautiful images are drawn by Phantom on SCS or Nancy to those who are lucky to call her our friend. They are so easy to color as she adds much of the shading already. The variety of her stamps is amazing. I love the nature, birthday and especially The Cafe~ super cool coffee/tea themed as well as great recipe/kitchen themes. Anyhooo~ I made this for the CHF challenge last week to use color. I brayered the sky and stamped the main images on watercolor paper.

Stamps- Shady tree studio- thatch birdhouse, Primitive beginnings, fine gingham

Ink- ballet blue, regal rose, Riding hood red

Paper- Kraft, glossy

Accessories- Riding hood red stripped gingham, scallop punch, circle punch, glitter heart-raw chipboard and SU chunky glitter

I thought it would be fun to add a couple of links to friends of mine who also blog. I find inspiration from their blogs and hope you do too.


My friend Nancy (aka Phantom) has a new line of stamps she has hand drawn. These beautiful stamps are available at Cornish Heritage Farms~ her line is called Shady tree studio. I love the varitey she offers and her true artist creativity just shines through her entire line. Her SCS gallery is another source of endless inspiration.

I hope you are as inspired by these creative girls as I am. Enjoy your spring day!
