Sketchbook News and New in the Studio!

Hello crafty friends.  It's going to be a beautiful day in Myrtle Beach today.  I hope summer has been good to you.  It's a busy and adventurous time for our family and even though art time gets limited, I enjoy the extended sunlight hours!

I'm introducing a new digital stamp at Oak Pond Creations Studio and sharing a card I made using an adorable red rubber stamp given to me by a dear friend.

There's a new designer at Oak Pond Creations.  He's not only an amazing artist, he is also my son. (huge proud parent grin)
This is Ethan and you can check out his section in the shop:
Welcome to the studio, Ethan!
E. Howard Studio
"Just an Apple"

Have an idea for an image?  Drop Ethan a line via email with your suggestions or just welcome him to the crafting community.

I found time to make a few cards this week.  This one features a gift from my friend Jeni over at Flip Flop Creations.  Jeni gave me this adorable red rubber stamp some time ago and I finally made her a card with it.  Thank you Jeni!
The image is Santoro Gorjuss I love you little rabbit
Paper is various scrap from my stash
Color medium: Copic Sketch, Distress Inks
Embellishments: Stampin' Up! ribbon, Spellbinder Dies, Stickles

Hugs and happy crafting and God bless you!
"As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love." -John 15:9

Congratulations Ethan. I'll put my thinking cap on for a stamp design.

I see you finally colored up this sweet little girl. So happy Jeni found her for you.

So excited you will be joining us at Inky Digits Tuesday night!

Luv You, LindA

I just love Ethan's apple! Your coloring is amazing, beautiful shading. My "I Love You Little Rabbit" card is displayed proudly on my chicken wire frame in my happy crafty place. MUAH! -jeni :)
