Thanks to all of you who traded with me!! Thanks RobbyGirl for an awesome PSAT!! I LOVE these!!

Housework? What housework? Does anyone see any housework I need to do? No? Good, because I just came out of the studio after 2 1/2 hours. Plan to upload the scans and then perhaps take a nap because there's no housework in this house.

Robin and Amy, you guys sure did a great job taking care of all your fun players this long weekend... great art gals... fun reading and catching up on all I missed...
but me and Ducks just had to take a few breather days.. super cleaned "my" area... but dang, I know I won't find anything now... thinking this clean thing was a bad idea...

ohhhh...what fun to look through everything! With my A-Tart trades, I got a rush of new stamps in AND I found a book of old US stamps my friend gave me a month ago. No time this weekend, other than the three I posted (all still available as of this posting; I'll check my inbox after this). Perhaps I'll peruse the a-thon gallery to see if there's any of this juicy art available.

I use stamps when possible in my cards, so there will be more upcoming in my gallery. ...or at the next PSAT! Looking forward to that....

ScrapPea
02-21-2012, 01:22 AM
Oh, heck, I'll post this here, too. A chunky I made for A-Tart--REAL stamps. I'd love a funky chunky or a dragon ATC in trade, but if someone adores this, PM me and we'll work something out!

Here is what i worked on today and my last contribution for the PSAT. Thanks so much to all of you who participated and who made this weekend so much fun! Robin, you rock on every level possible!

PSAT Mandala Chunky (inspired by mrubyjean...and hers if she likes it.)

i have a ton of stamps left and ideas to go with some of them so ill be adding more to my gallery over the week.

I'll be doing some chunky mandalas too :) you've inspired us all mrubyjean. ;) I like using stamps in my atcs (never used them with atcs or chunkies before) and have had fun making chunkies too :) mama bunny says that chunkies are a chunkies version of atcs...then she went on to say that chunkies are atcs fat cousin!! lol

I also re-discovered some digi stamps :) which will be printing off to make chunkies... duckies, owls, lots of things :)
