Having some fun with "Me Time"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had some "me time" today -it has been a very rare thing these days.  I originally went down to the dungeon aka my craft room (which is located in my unfinished basement) to clean up.  After the two scrapbooking conventions I just plopped things down on my table and nothing has been touched since!  So I cleaned up some things and then just sat there......trying to get some inspiration to create.  I just started to play with some of the new stamps that I purchased at the conventions-next thing I knew I pulled out my Copic markers and away I played!!!  I think I have quite a bit of practice to do with my new Copic markers but I had a fun time using them today.

I really LOVE this Tim Holtz stamp.  I bought it last year and this was the first time I used it.  It is from the Retro Halloween stamp collection.

It was a lot of fun mixing different types of media-I had no plan and just played :).  The paper that I used for all three cards came from the K & Company Halloween Designer Mat Pad that I just recently purchased at Michael's.

I hope you all have an opportunity to just play and create something fun.  I know I had a great afternoon making some cute Halloween cards.

Have a super great week!!!!!!
