susan's Lily and the Lotus and Stampotique challenge Anything goes SDC176

Welcome to my blog.
I love Stampotique stamps and I have fallen short terribly of their challenges and purchasing more of them!
The challenge theme  is ANYTHING GOES ..just my cup of tea.(coffee preferred)..
here is the link to this fun challenge many I decided to go with something very simple.
I love Daniel Torrente.. actually I love many many of the fabulous designers I chose "Perl" artist Daniel Torrente.
"Perl" has always been one of my favorites she has that "AND???????" look on her face lol.
Here is a simple act/or aceo as many call them.
The retro circles are from Tim Holtz a red rubber stamp I butchered so I could use it in many desirable ways hahahahaha.
Merry Christmas friends.

Where have I Been???

 Hey everyone I hope you are well and happy.
I have been making act/aceo's and getting lost in the fun of it right now.

I am making aceo/act  boards for shows .
As I have pack things into my sheds to make room for family and friends when Mama  passes I am gathering a few items am placing them on ebay and zibbett.It entertains me and I need that right now.
I have also been preparing to go on the road at the first of the year I think the physical contact will be so good for me.
I am working in my journals but will not publish the pieces until I have quality time with out interruption and my reproduction prints made. Soon etsy will hold my canvas pieces and originals...but not yet.I will post my all in one new blog soon
I have also begun a journey with "Fun Stampers Journey" and will be posting  more about that soon.
for now...I played the past two weeks here
and here

Keeping myself conntect to my art is so important right now...well hugs to all
