It's Your Day to Shine...Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #247~Make Your Mark


One hot day happening here; we do get those on occasion *grin*  I'm balancing outdoors for a bit with indoors for a bit...

In the event that you are indoors today, Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #247 has new inspiration  to pique your interest AND to make this extra special:


What's a birthday without a celebration, right? So, bring out those pens, pencils, markers, paints...what-have-you.. to 'make your mark' because one lucky winner will receive, from our generous sponsor:

a $40 gift certificate to shop at Happy Little Stampers!

I decided to 'make my mark' for this celebration with yet another bout of 'attempting' water-colouring. Concord & 9th's Shine Brightly set called my name, especially since, of late, I'm just a wee bit succulent smitten and cacti charmed....

My terrarium light-bulb is layered on the panel, as are my watercolours, so off  we go to Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge #9~Layered

Please be sure to visit the team; a whole lot of mark-making happening over there with different mediums and technique! Afterwards, create some dazzle of your own and join us in the gallery.  Remember: there's a fabulous prize to be had!

Thank you for dropping by; your visit is both welcomed and deeply appreciated!
