I bought myself some pens!

I couldn't resist! I was at Michael's with my friend, Karen tonight. I saw a cute flower stamp on sale. Then I saw these LePlume II pens. They are double ended with an ultra fine tip at one end and brush tip on other end. Not on the same level as the Copic, but a lot of fun, none the less!

I have not ever been a stamper, but figured I could get a few that could be versatile and use in different projects.

I had gotten my new issue of Organic Gardener today and decided to gussy up one of the subscription cards.

Looking forward to more cheap, trampy art in the future!

Oh...I had to call off work for tomorrow...I have laryngitis! Gonna go play with my Mom's new Nook Tablet instead...and rest my voice at the same time!

I can hear you loud and clear. ;) Your new markers look like fun to me.

Hi Julie,
You will have fun with those. Just love your great idea of taking a simple subscription card and making it a one of a kind. A great way to add to a junk journal or a garden journal. Thanks for the great idea.

Feel better soon.

Yes, they do look like fun and you did some beautiful work on that cover.
Calling in the smart thing to do so you can rest and not spread it to everyone else. Hmm, I think you may need at least a week of healing. lol

mmm.. I love LePlume's! Had some a long while ago.. they've all dried out now. I love brush markers, so nice and smoothy.

Hi Julie *hugs*
I hope you are feeling better and the laryngitis is gone. I have missed were sick on my birthday and I would have given you a piece of cake... :o( but I truly hope you are better!

You are so fun with all the wonderful creatives pictures you do. Those pens look like they could make some great masterpieces and we're looking forward to seeing your creations.

Feel good.
