A new technique for me and the resulting card.

Hi Everyone, and Happy Sunday!  Just wanted to post up my latest creation!  Im not sure what I am going to use this card for, but I love it!  After a long day of working and running around, I sat down at the computer with my good friend Casper and she taught me a fantastic new technique.  Now, I happen to love colored pencils, but just never seem to have the extra cash to afford the really really nice ones that I see used all over blogland.  Well, Ms. Casper helped me out.  She showed me how to use my **cheap** colored pencils(RoseArt, ones I got for my son) and blend them with, Baby Oil.  I must say, I now think this is the only technique I will be using for a while!  I loved the simplicity, (after I got my jar set up correct! )  It gives a lovely watercolor effect without all the mess!  I will let you be the judge!  Here is my card. 

Basic Grey Euphoria Paper - for the side strip
Basic Grey Green Grass (My idea of what this paper should be named) - for the green die cut leaves, cut on my cutting machine.
Colored Pencils - Rose Art Brand
Baby Oil - for blending - Many thanks to Casper for teaching me this wonderful technique!
Dark Green Stamp Pad for distressing - Michael's - presently where I am headed to do some needed shopping! - Got my coupon and Im ready to rock!
Embellies - EK Success Kay and Co.
Please feel free to critique me!  I need all the help I can get! ****Big Grin!***

Hi everybody!  I woke up this am thinking, yep another day.  But when I opened my email ohhhh, did I have a lovely surprise!  Debs  AND Marjo have given me a "Stylish Blogger Award"  Now there are a few things I need to collect to finish this post, but I will edit it later in the day!  I just want to say Thank You Debs and Marjo!  Here is my lovely award badge which I will be posting on my sidebar as well!

 Now, I need to give 7 random facts about myself.  And to come up with seven random things, well, that required some coffee filled with Almond Joy Creamer and a bit of thought, but here goes.

2.  I have recently become addicted to hot tea!  (Thanks to Stitchy)
3.  I love to shoot pool (billiards), and Mark can hardly every beat me at it!
4.  My love of art was inspired by my Drafting teacher in the 9th grade.
5.  My favorite place to be in the spring and summer is in my little garden, watching the plants grow.
6.  I am a sucker for abandoned Animals (I have aquired one Snooch and one Brutus)
7.  I love Latin Dancing!

Now, I have to present this award to seven bloggers that I have recently found.  I will have to update this list once I get to some hi speed internet!  But stay tuned, your name could be here!

New Features - Manic Monday Freebies, Custom Stamp Design, and a NEW ***RETURN CUSTOMER REWARD***Program

Good Monday Morning everyone!  A couple of new things will  be happening at the Floppy Latte's Digital Designs Blog!  I am starting a Manic Monday Freebie!  This means each Monday morning, before 10 a.m. a new freebie will be posted.  The catch is that the freebie will only be free for 24 hours!  You have to catch it before Tuesday at 10 a.m.

My next new feature is Custom Stamp Design.  How this works is if you have a photo or drawing that you would like converted into a digital stamp, all you have to do is 1.  Send me your drawing or photograph with instructions on what you would like done, and I will build your custom stamp file (consisting of 3 file formats: JPG, PNG, and TIF) just for you.  The cost for this service is $5.00 USD.  Your custom stamp will not be released for the general public.  General turn around time is 48 hours after payment is received.  Please see my Custom Stamp Request Page listed on the left sidebar for all the specifics.

The last new feature is my Return Customer Reward Program.  We all like getting something for free!  I know I sure do!  So, in the spirit of rewarding my loyal customers who purchase my products at my shop in the StitchyBear Digital Stamp Store , I will be giving you a free stamp for every 5 that you purchase.  All you have to do is send me an email with a copy of your 5 most recent purchases, (PLEASE - delete any personal information that you do not want transmitted) and the stamp that you would like to recieve free, and I will email it right to you.  You can preview all of my stamps in my area of the StitchyBear Digital Stamps store. Paper Paks are included in this offer as well!    Simply save your order confirmations and copy them into an email and send it to and include your choice of free stamp and viola!  You have a free stamp!

Now:  On to the Manic Monday Freebie!  This week I have a lovely Hibiscus for you.  Perfect for spring cards, wall decor, and many other handcrafted projects!  Note that there are two different line sizes in this stamp, to add a bit of dimension.  Now remember, after tomorrow at 10 a.m. this freebie will go into my shop at StitchyBear Digital Stamps for sale for $3.00.  So you have to be quick!  And, if you use this stamp, please send me a link so that I can leave you some love!  Now, on to the preview!


Oh My, Time is up!  But if you still want this fantastic stamp, you can pop over to HERE and get it for $3.00!  If you hook up as a follower, you will get notification each time the Manic Monday Stamp changes so you won't miss out!  And here is a Manic Monday! Freebie badge for your blog so that others can get hooked up for their freebie!  Once you post your badge, link it to  Help me get out there and spread the word about my freebies and my shop!  I would greatly appreciate it!  The code for the blinkie is at the bottom of the graphic!

Here is the code:

I hope you enjoy this freebie!  And remember to send me a link when you use it so I can come leave you some well deserved love!  I will then become a follower of your blog as well!

Here's to having a great week!
