Ready to roll!

Laptop charged...check.  Router connected and set up...check.  Internet connected...check!  Yeah!  It works!  I will finally be able to update my blog during the day...tomorrow.  I can't wait.  Updating at night is for the birds!  Hopefully this is my last late-night post for awhile.

Lovely as a Tree is such a classic set.  It is SO versatile.  The mirror technique is one of my favorite things to do with this set and is super easy, especially with our new style of ink pads, which allow the ink to stay wet just a smidge longer.  First stamp the tree image where you want it on your cardstock.  Then stamp it on the stamp-a-ma-jig imaging sheet.  Turn the imaging sheet upside down under the trees you stamped on your cardstock and rub the ink onto your cardstock to create the mirror image.  See, I told you it was easy!  After that I sponged on the colors with sponge daubers and used the white gel pen to create ripples in the water.  Easy peasy!
