A few

One of the residents at the community I manage blessed me with a whole bunch of older Stampin' Up stamp sets.  Some of them had never even been mounted on blocks yet.  They were from 1999 to 2001 sets.

The background script is stamped with an Inkadinkado stamp. Flowers are colored with copics.
 I just love this rainy day girl.  The flowers were made from coffee filters.  I used my scalloped circle punch and punched out several layers, then misted them with a mixture of water and re-inker.  Then I put them together with a brad and clipped between the scallops to make the petals. 
 The little girls following are some that I bought from, my favorite online stamp and copic supplier. 
 I have struggled so much with my bows.  I found a tutorial on utube (don't you just love utube?) with a florist trick for making perfect bows. 
 Another little girl with coffee filter flowrs and the fence is a Tim Holtz die.

So, I haven't been just sitting back on my laurels, I have been creating and continually making a disaster out of my craft studio.
