Happy Birthday Wendy Blog Hop!


Good Morning!

Today, we are celebrating a very special lady!

Wendy Wyman, owner of Repeat Impressions Stamps, has a birthday today,
and we all want to wish her a wonderful day...

When Wendy was just 4 years old, she announced that she was going to be an artist when she grew up.  Many years, and many sketchbooks later, she had earned a BFA in Graphic Design.

The next 11 years found Wendy worked in advertising, freelancing, and running a printing company.

And then it happened...Wendy's mom became a stamping addict, and the rest was history!  It was Wendy's mom's encouragement that led her to turn her illustrations into fine art rubber stamps.

Wendy's husband Bill, was also looking for a career change, and jumped at the idea of learning a new skill.  And so....in 1996, Wendy and Bill established Repeat Impressions Stamps.  Each stamp is designed by Wendy, and manufactured by Bill in their home workshop!

We hope that you will join us today, as we hop together for Wendy!

A note to Wendy from all of us:

Wendy, you are the sweetest, and most generous person we know.
As a 'boss', rarely do we find ourselves working for someone that is more professional,
or more organized!  You are so understanding of our personal issues, and it's a joy to work with you and your products!

We want to wish you a very Happy Birthday!
We each look up to you, we admire you, and we respect you.
May your day today be filled with love and laughter!

And remember....the more candles you have, the bigger the wish you are allowed!

This is the card that i made for Wendy's Birthday. I broke out the old Prismacolor pencils to color this image.




Please hop along to see what my fellow Rock Stars have to share for Wendy!

Bible Cover Altering for a youtube challenge- Female Version

Hi Friends, I thought that i'd share a challenge that i found on Youtube.  The Ladies name is Sarah Roberson and she's challenging everyone to Buy (Dollar Tree works) and Alter 2 bible covers. One will be mailed to her and she will take it to a nursing home and give it to a resident. The other bible we are to hand out to a stranger. I thought that this idea was such a great one that i started altering my two bibles right away.  One i wanted to be masculine and one feminine.  This wasn't a requirement to make both a female and male version, but one that i wanted to do. I could have easily chosen to make two feminine, but masculine is always a challenge for me.

Psalm 148: 2-4- Bible art Journaling

I've created another bible art journaling page that
I'd like to share with you today. Remember to read your scriptures.  I read the entire Psalm before i started my art.

Psalm 148:2-4
Praise him all his angels!
Praise him all the Armies of Heaven!
Praise him, Sun and Moon!
Praise him all you twinkling Stars!
Praise him Skies above!
Praise him, vapors high above the clouds!


I Created this page and colored using my shimmery watercolors.  I drew this picture using a inspiration photo from Melonheadz LDS illustration. These are free and she also allows you to trace so check it out. I love to draw but really like to look at things while doing it so this was perfect for me. I also added my own Sun, Moon, clouds etc...
