Melinda blows kisses!

Ok...after coloring this girlie...I am officially in love with Whiff of Joy stamps! They are so cute and fun to color (although I do need more practice on these). What could you not like about these? I soooo need to pick up some more once my spending freeze thaws...lol.

YES, I'm on a spending freeze! Recently...we have been looking at hard times. It's hard to say but...we're not the only ones feeling it I know. Now is really the time to conserve what we have and BOY is it hurting not to be buying new stamps...and trust...I have many in wish lists for when I can spend just a bit.

Right now I'm focusing on using what I already have...so hence came this card (with 5 sisters). Joy, one of my Ho's...is having a swap to use up your DP and STOP HOARDING!!! Oh yeah...I'm a DP hoarder! So...I was glad to join that swap because then that meant I can still create with stuff I haven't used or hoarded because it was "too pretty" and looking at it as if they were recent purchases. Trust me...it was hard for me to tear into those new packages of DP...but in the end...I did feel "satisfied"...lol. Whatcha think?

Hey GF!!! I don't know if you remember me, but a year ago you won a stamp set for my blog candy...anyway...your coloring is gorgeous! I love my Prismacolor markers as well...and yes, the economy is hurting many of us...I'm on a spending freeze too...well...kind of...I guess that means my new purchases will mean a bit more cause I have to be more careful! Hugs to you, and thanks for sharing your wonderful art with us!
