More ATC's

I'm really enjoying playing with these new stamps. Here are a couple more ATC's.
I got the coffin stamp years ago in an unmounted grab bag.
I never thought I'd find a use for it!

I recently bought some of Michelle Ward's stamps from Green Pepper Press. She also has a blog called the GPP Street Team. Each month she posts a crusade - a creativity prompt and invites people to join in. I thought I would join in.
This month's crusade is Crush on You. What do you have a crush on, what are you obsessed by or infatuated with? Here are my crushes:

My husband and soulmate, Ken. He's my best friend and a great guitarist. I don't think I could live without him. We celebrate our 10th anniversary on the 29th of November 2007.

Our son Troy. He's nearly 14 and he's growing up so fast. He frustrates me at times but he also makes me proud.

Bella - our baby - she's just 9 months old and we all love her. She's a Papillon Jack Russell cross. Who could help but fall in love with her.

Ravens! Yes that's right ravens. I love ravens, they are the most beautiful and intelligent bird. I never paid them much attention until our son Brendan died (his name in gaelic means raven) then I started to notice them all the time. I feel comforted whenever they are near. Which is why Michelle's stamps are so great I can now include them in my art. So many people think of ravens/crows as bad omens, but to me they are beautiful majestic creatures. These ATC's were created using Michelle's stamps.

Ten Zen Seconds by Eric Maisel
I was recommended this book sometime ago, but haven't been blogging for a while so I thought I would share it. It is a combination of Eastern and Western techniques. Utilising deep breathing and postive thought it creates mindfulness and helps you to centre. I've used the techniques and it is working for me, it is a useful stress reduction tool.
