For this release from Simply B Stamps I decided to make recipe cards. These are the cards that you put at the beginning of the categories. I thought they were perfect.

As you may or may not know, my grampa died on August 28th this year. No one I've known has ever died before, so I guess I'm still figuring out my feelings and whatnot. Anyway, I had this idea the other day to use this little Greeting Farm image to make a tiny card to put at his grave site. I'm not religious in any way, but he was, and the rest of my family (minus my parents) are. I figure this would mean something to him. Will mean something to my nana too, so I made her one too. They're identical, and I'm planning on hard laminating them. I'm hoping it will help protect the card from the winter rain as I think the mortuary is supposed to leave these kind of things at the grave site when you put them there. He's in a military graveyard, buried among the white rose bushes there, and they let us put up a flag, so I'm hoping they'll let me put this there too. Maybe it will keep him company.Rubber Stamp: The Greeting Farm (Sweet & Toxic)

Today Simply B Stamps has another release; they're Christmas zombies. Fun, right? I decided to make mine blue, because they're frozen, instead of the traditional green.

You ready for Christmas? Simply B Stamps has eight adorable new stamps coming your way to get you in the Christmas-y mood too! This release was a bit challenging for me because it's the first one right after I got back from a Copic technique retreat in AZ with Jennifer Dove. After everything that got crammed into my brain during those three days, I then had to come home and try to incorporate it all into my colouring. It's *much* easier to do something right when you're just copying a colour guide. I can already see some improvement though.
