Colored 8-1/2" x 11" papers have been replenished at Art 'n Soul. Papers from Memory Box and The Paper Cut, along with A2 white and cream envelopes. To make room for incoming and other planned orders, I must reduce the current inventory at the store. So, all day Saturday and Sunday at Art 'n Soul, all 12x12 papers are being discounted by 35%. After the Monday holiday (we're closed that day), the prices return to normal on Tuesday!

From the Memory Box blog, another beautiful "color my world" card from Sue Trembeth.

"For my first card, I wanted to share one of the new Gary Robertson images called Bunny With Basket (H1953).  To make the card, I colored the outside edges of the various parts of the scene with Distress Markers and then softened the color with a waterbrush.  Gary's images are just perfect for coloring!" -- Laura Fulcher

From the Penny Black blog, a way to make a masculine card for Father's Day. Penny Black has prepared a PDF file that provides you with the detailed how-to instructions from Therese.

FUN! That is all I can say about this watercolor drawing from the RubberMoon blog. I think this would be so much fun to create for a mixed media piece or an art journal page. It just illustrates how you may let a rubber stamp(s) serve as the base for your next pencil drawing,
