Hanna Hanna everywhere!

Hanna isn't in Montana- she's everywhere- at least on Split Coast. Well, Hanna is adorable and I had to get in on the action too. (I don't like being left out). I don't have the set yet- but my friend Jimmi has the set so she stamped some images for me. Hanna is a lot of fun to stamp. I colored her with my Stampin' Up Markers on water color paper and blended it with my Aquapainter. This is a great alternative for those of us who can't quite afford the Copic Markers yet. It works best (in my experience) with the water color paper from Stampin' Up. The paper used for this image is another brand. It works but not as good as the SU paper. There is a great tutorial for this technique at Julie Buhler's Blog HERE Her hair is Creamy Caramel with Close to Cocoa accents. One of her bags is covered with the dp from the card. The sentiment sums up how I feel about this Hanna set. :)

Other materials used

SU Blush Blossom, Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa card stock

SU Chocolate Grosgrain ribbin

White button brads from Makin' Memories

Designer Paper from K I Memories

Ok. I am done gushing about Hanna and how much fun she is. If you are interested in this set and more sets you can check her out HERE. I guess I had better get back to work.

Yes, It's been over 2 months since I posted!! I know!

It's been over 2 months since I posted on my blog and while it doens't bother me a whole lot (it's not like I have any readers) it really bothers my BFF Jimmi from The Stampin Shopper. So what did she do to make me break my fast from posting- SHE TAGGED ME!! Yeah, I know- she's done it before. But this time I think if I don't respond she really might stamp me or color on me with her new Copic markers or something else...who knows?? So here goes.

I have to link to the blogger that tagged me, done.
List 7 random things about myself - I will try- but I doubt it will be interesting....
Tag 7 more bloggers. I don't know 7 bloggers so I'm not going to tag anyone back......

  • I used to competive roller skate when I was growing up- my first freestyle routine was to the music of The Pink Panther
  • I grew up in a small town in the mountains of Pennsylvania and I loved it there
  • I have a dog and I have a cat. I love my dog- do you want my cat?? ;)
  • I know a lot of non-girly stuff and can hold my own (somewhat) in a conversation regarding truck engines, tractors and because of my job- truck driving and fuel-hauling
  • I am divorced and while my divorce was one of the toughest things I have ever had to survive- it is also the best thing that ever happened to me.
  • I live in a two bedroom apartment- I painted my stamp room/dining room yellow even though I wasn't supposed to (I hate white paint)
  • I bought an MP3 player to listen to when I walk everyday.....and I haven't gone walking once since I bought it.

Well, that's it. The most boring blog post you will ever read in your lifetime! Oh, wait- nobody reads my blog! bawawawawaaaaaaaa!!! ;)

Have a great day. Maybe if I stamp some this weekend I will post more......but I have to work and you know how that goes.....
