Crafty Cottage


Check out this new set of cottage stamps from Crafty Secrets. I love the vintage-y feel and cleaner lines for coloring. Crafty Secrets is having a sale right now, as well. You can choose a small stamp set for free when you spend $25. WOW! You can read about how to take them up on that sweet offer HERE.


Colored with Copic Markers and layered with Basic Grey Bittersweet papers and brads that I got when I was having a ‘retail therapy’ moment…ok, it was a whole day. One of my other purchases that day was a reversible blaze orange/black coat to wear out in the elements when Wes decides it’s time to do something like this again.  Yes, I live an exciting life. LOL!

Wes and I are hosting a missionary couple that we pray for and some friends from the community tonight for dessert and to hear about the couple’s mission work. They have wonderful jobs with Campus Crusade for Christ and the Jesus Film Project.  That said, I’ve still got the Christmas ‘piles’ sitting around that need to be shuffled and dealt with.

Have a great day!

  1. Love the lace and fun mix of brads with your sweet cottage–fun colors!


  2. Oooh! I love the little scene, so 1968, so yellow submarine. I’m waiting for the blue meanies to pop out from behind those flowers.

  3. Oooh! I LOVE what you’ve done with this set! Now you’re killing me though b/c I WANT it!!! 😉

  4. Oh, I just love that image. Great color choices.
    Happy Holidays.

  5. I love that pink vintagey trim and adorable stamp of the house. I need some of that for my baby birds! Glad you are doing well. Need to catch up soon!

  6. Great image and very different. I think it would be great also colored with Prismacolor pencils. I’ll have to pull out some of my “veteran stamps” and try the style myself.
    Hope you and your family will have many blessings in the new year.
    Hugs from Michigan
