Fishing on the Lake

Good morning......I was sleeping so good......coffee isn't even ready and here I is. Got to get a card posted, seems like it's been forever. I made several cards this weekend but can't show them to you yet, but here is one I made to show someone how to use the Stampscape stamps. That is what all of these are. Haven't used these in a long time either. What I do and I'm not sure if it's right or wrong but works for me, I stamp my images, in this case images, then sponge around them, the sky and grass etc. Then when I get that like I want I may go back with markers and fill in around certain areas. I used markers on the cabin and some of the trees. Okay that will bout do it for now, coffee is ready and so am I LOL. Yall have a great day and I'll go by and comment in a little bit........
