The Rosie's Roadshow order came in at Art 'n Soul. So, please hurry in for the best selection. We all know how quickly her stamps disappear. I don't have any pics of what came in but you can see them in-person at the store!

Art 'n Soul's Inspiration Station this month features the Stamp Set "Bird Crazy" from Stamper's Anonymous' Tim Holtz Collection.

Sandy Allnock has a wonderful video tutorial showing how to color "white" with your Copic markers. That has been a long-standing mystery to me and I'm so glad she shared this technique on her blog.
