Yes, actually I was abducted by aliens.

But look at the cute cards they had me make while enslaved!
A cute little birthday moose! I'm in love with Doodlebug's paper colors. So vibrant and happy. Look at that cute cupcake button, too. Anyone know a good source for cute buttons like these? I picked them up at Archivers, but their selection has shrunk quite a bit lately.

I love this stamp by Outlines. *Both* cats and mice? It's so like my house! (Okay, I don't have any mice right now, but colored in brown, they look a little like my degus. :)) I made this for the Outlines challenge this week. It was an easy one since I love working in aqua and brown anyway.

Now look at this cute little bunny fairy I made for the  SCACD sketch challenge. It's super shimmery (oh so appropriate for a little bunny pixie) since I used both copics and Sakura shimmery Star pens. I love these pens! I happened upon a little trick when using them, too. If the pen is not being generous with its ink, hold it at a 45 degree angle to your surface. It's simple physics when dealing with a gel like these, but for some reason it never occurred to me till now.
I love these stamps by Pink Cat Studio. It's impossible to look at them without saying," Aww!" Since the challenge requires that you use a stamp set available in SCACD's shop, you know where you can get them if you decide you need them too!

I managed to escape my captors when the sentry fell asleep. I apologize to anyone who has been wondering where I went. I seem to have popped a new disk this week, so that's been slowing me down. My foster hamsters find my fingers delicious all of the sudden (ow), I'm trying to get my scrap room in order, sorting through my stuff to decide what's going to the Cary Scrappers yard sale in July and what needs to be labeled and put away, prepping for my Creative Memories party (local readers, let me know if you want an invite! :)), sorting through writing grants and whatnot,  and, of course, there was the alien thing.

She may be my evil overlord, but she sure is cute!
