What I've been working on.

This skunk stamp is my favorite thing in the new Stampin' Up catalog. He is soooo cute I could explode. I added glitter for his stripe (yeah, I know he's a reverse skunk--light on the bottom with a dark stripe, but he's also a cartoon, so reality isn't a real big deal. Settle down, you.) because my latest mantra is "glitter makes everything better", though my long-suffering friend Jen K disagrees when it comes to her floors. I suppose it could have something to do with the many many hours she and Alex put into making all those boards line up and look pretty sans glitter, or it could be that the sparkles make her eyes hurt or secretly remind her of some long-ago horrific glitter incident she had, until now, repressed the memory of. I'm not sure. All I know is that I am banned from using glitter when we crop in her living room. It's hard, but I abstain until I get home again, dump all those little tiny vials onto the bed, then roll deliciously among the tiny little flecks until I am fully gilded. Mmmm.
