Train Tracks

 Hello Friends, hope you are all having a great weekend.  This is a long weekend for us since we are celebrating the 4th of July.  We have had a busy weekend.  This evening we have a cookout planned and then tomorrow things are back to normal schedule, if I have a normal schedule.  ~grin~

First I want to announce the winner of the stamp giveaway.    Donna,  you are the winner.  Please let me know your mailing information and I will get them in the mail to you.  Thanks, to all of you entered and became a follower of mine on BLOGLOVIN'.  I still hope you will become a follower, if you haven't already done so.  Once Feedburner stops sending my blog posts directly to you by email, you will be able to keep up with my blog through bloglovin' by becoming a follower.

Here is a note that I got regarding the changes by Feedburner.

I have a couple of cards to share with you made with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps  new release Train Tracks.  I am liking all the stamps from the new release, but this set is my favorite.  

For my first card, I stamped the image on white card stock using black Marvy Euchida ink.     I like to use it this ink because it works so well with Copic coloring.  Next I colored my image using Copics.  I used the Heidi Pettie Cloud stencil and turquoise ink to make the clouds.           

My second card was made the same as the first card other than I used different colors of Copics and I added yellow in the clouds  on this one.  

I hope you liked the card for today.  I appreciate you coming by to take a peek at them.  Have a wonderful week.
