A Little CHF Sneak Peek

Cornish Heritage Farms is releasing a new sentiment set from the Mona Lisa Moments line called Thomas Kinkade Expressions on Friday, May 14 (see the peek at the entire set on CHF's intro page?).  This set of expressions goes perfectly, of course, with their series of Thomas Kinkade images, but they are versatile enough to be used with pretty much anyone's stamp collection.  Here I've paired one of my favorite sentiments, "Live simply......", with the lovely pear image from the Can It set (ATC collection).  (Eeeee, just reread that line... so punny!)  I used some of my yummy new Queen Bee 6x6 paper pad from Pink Paislee.... even the image is stamped on a pale yellow distressed patterned paper.  The best part was I found it at our local A.C. Moore (which is a "big box" craft store that did not previously carry the smaller lines.... they even have Tim's Alterations dies!  You can use your 40% off coupon!  But I digress....).  I colored the image with Copics (very easy, only a few colors), and distressed the sentiment panel a bit... but the papers, image, and sentiment stamp did most of the work for me.

Hope you're all having a great week!  The kids are taking their end-of-grade tests that are mandated by the system this week, so there's a bit of stress in the air.  I'm trying to keep them calm, feed them well, and maintain strict bedtimes.  Hopefully all will go well. :)

P.S. Almost forgot... Mountain Cabin releases today.  You can see the DT's artwork HERE in the gallery.
