Mmmmm. Yes.  Most definitely yes.  When a girl hasn’t stamped just for the halibut in a few weeks, sometimes, she’s just gotta do, what she’s gotta do!

Today, I put something that’s been rolling around in my head to paper, and, –totally nailed it on the first run!

Paper:  Orange Kitchen Collection Paper  by A Muse
Ink:  Robin’s Egg Pigment (Clearsnap), Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)
Other:  Dymo Label Maker

Why, yes, today I am indeed a clevaaaah girl!! (arms wrapped around self, chortling).  Isn’t this just the cutest thing???

I took just a couple hours off during the weekend, to take the kids to see Iron Man  . . . O M G !!! Robert Downey, Jr. is a total hottie in this flick!  Eeegads, I haven’t been to the movies since last July–really need to get out more often . . .

Anyway, this movie was totally worth full ticket price–can’t wait to own it on DVD–Iron Man *must* be mine!!!    If you’re a fan of Marvel comics, you’ll love it!  Robert, Robert, Robert . . . I’m gonna need an appletini to douse these flames! Mercy!!!

OK (slapping self), enough fantasizing and back to the rubbah!

Paper:  Madeira Lt. Green by A Muse

I also made a spiffy decorative liner using the new Madeira 8.5 x 11" paper for my Starbucks coffee mug! 
I wanted to embellish the center of the flower with these gaaaaaaw-jus Swaroski crystals Mona gave me, but, it wouldn’t clear the insert chamber, so I had to remove it, and substituted a mini glue dot, and sprinkled some seafoam ultrafine glitter, so I could have a bit o’ bling.  I’m not sure I really like the way I did the monogram, tho . . . the paper is *so* pretty all on its own, that I had a hard time covering it up with anything else . . . I may just re-do it, and showcase the paper all by it’s beautimous onsie . . .  I’ve had that gol durn mug since last fall, waiting patiently for just the right paper . . .  So glad I did! 

It’s awesome to now have some of my favorite patterns and colors of paper in full 8.5 x 11" sheets!  Yippeeeee!!!

Well, that’s all I got for show and tell for the moment . . . Hope your Monday has been maaaahvelous, as opposed to manic!  *chuckle*

    Don, my brother and I saw Ironman this weekend, too. HOLY MOLEY! We loved it! Full price worthy all the way! My brother is quite the comic book fiend and gave us all the background on Ironman on the way home. Thank goodness for Grandma and Grandpa for babysitting, because I really didn’t want to miss this one!

  5. Fantastic creations Julie. I especially love what you did with the mug. You are freakin’ brilliant. I have had a few amazing creativity moments myself over the years and just love it when it all comes together. It makes up for the times when things go horribly wrong!
