 Did you know that today is National Coffee Day?

This morning I received an invite to participate in a Coffee lover's blog hop and that's when I came to know that Chaitali from Cuts crops and creativity was hosting a blog hop to celebrate the day!  I knew I wanted to join the fun but was not sure if I could make anything today . But it was about coffee and although I don't drink coffee anymore, there was a time when I could not start my day without a cuppa and even today the sweet aroma of coffee makes me want a sip !

 I quickly sat to do a piece of watercolor . The cup is a stamp by Clearly Besotted and the rest of the picture has been sketched.

 here is a closer look...

 Will keep this post short as I have to finish a lot of other stuff which I pushed to the back burner this morning!

Sharing with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge-anything goes

 Hope you liked it.......
Thanks for stopping by  and have a wonderful day!

Love and Joy

Finally...the weekend is here!

Over the last 2 weeks I was busy with an art exhibit and looking at my blog today, I see that posts have become far and few! The week seems to just fly by and apart from DT assignments I don't seem to get the time for anything else! I keep looking at all these challenges ..some old ..some new and keep reminding myself to play along..but always seem to miss the deadlines!
..oh well..need to organize my time better I guess!

Today's post is about Spectrum Noir coloring. I will have a complete tutorial over at Spectrum Noir for this one and you can see how it came to life!

The stamps are by Crafter's Companion -
Stamps-Paintbox Poppets Sleigh Ride, Stamp It Australia-Floral fancies.
Spectrum Noir Markers- CR2,CR5,CR9,CG1,CG2,CG4,EB3

Sharing with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge-anything goes.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!

 Today's card makes me wonder.... where did this year go....season's greetings ? already?
....ok ..don't panic if  holiday cards are not on your to do list as's only Sept we still have time..but not much don't take it too easy!

But I wanted to give this beautiful stamp a holiday feel. This stamp is by Crafter's Companion and was released last week. It's part of a wonderful collection of 14 stamps ..all US landmarks!

I decided to watercolor the background and the actual image was done using Spectrum Noir colored pencils and just a hint of diamond stickles for that little bit of sparkle.

 I love the detail on this collection of stamps..all of them are so beautifully them!

Thanks for joining me today...see you on Wednesday with a  mixed media video!.. is a sneak peek ..

Have a wonderful week ahead!
