This and that...!

Hello
Since a month now we are in Naples, Florida.... even if it's cooler than usual it still is nicer than in my hometown in Québec, Canada... I hear they have lots of snow... poor dears I sympatise with you ...!
I have been doing fun Valentine cards that I already sent ... no pictures of these.
The only think I miss when travelling is my scanner... Here I have to take a picture of my work and I'm not always pleased with those. Anyway, I have discovered the "RubberStampMadness" mag... Oh boy do I like this mag... I have never seen it in Montréal where I get most of my other mags! I will subscribe that one for sure.
I did a bit of art, first to participate in one of my groups' lottery and the other for a birthday.
"WORDS" was the theme of our lottery. For this card I played with Technique Junkies' "Faux Designer Paper", Nancy Judd contributed this fabulous technique and I love it... It's so much fun to do and allows lots of room for creativity... Thank you Nancy!
WORDS

This other one is an awesome way to work with alcohol inks. I already love working with those and when I saw this article in RubberStampMadmess I wanted absolutely to try... This technique is from Marina Lenzino and as Marina says it does require a bit of pratice LOL! I finally came up with a background that pleased me. Marina designs her own stamps http://www.cherrypieartstamps.com ... and you can image that I have ordered some ... unfortunately they did come in, in time for me to use on this background. I used this lovely stamps from Delta, I'm quite pleased with the card I did.

DREAMS

That is all for now ... hope you've enjoyed your visit!
