So Blessed card

Here is an extra post for today :-) Yesterday I had a Board meeting and started work at 6am with just 5 hours of sleep the night before. To get through my meeting a HAD TO drink  a 5 hour energy (I hate them and NEVER drink them). My husband went to his basketball game and my kids were off at my moms so I figured I'd rest and fall asleep around 8pm. But NO I was wrong! I relaxed for a few hours then got the crafting bug. So at 8pm when I thought I'd be sleeping, I was making a card.

Here is the drawing I made during my Board Meeting lunch...

Here is what I created...
I've been wanting to use this Penny Black cling stamp "Posies" since I bought it. I used memento markers to color the flowers and leaves then HUFFED on it with my hot air :-) and stamped it. A little distressing and some Martha Stewart punched Butterflies and this card was created. Hope you like it. Next Wednesday is my Design Team Wednesday on the Stamp Fever Blog and I'm going to make a tutorial on how to color your stamps with ink markers.  I'll post it here as well when I'm done.

Wow I've been MIA....

Hello all,

Seems as though I haven't posted anything in a while. I have been taking a little time off (a month and a half) from my classes due to the memorial day holiday. So we've spent more time outdoor with nice weather and I've had less time to craft. I do have 2 classes coming up. For my regular class I have this idea of creating cards with a scene. I have a friend, baby shower and Birthday card planned. The first 2 I've created already and I'll work on the final b-day card tonight and I promise to post all 3 here tomorrow. Once I finish that one, I'll get creating for my coloring class. My idea is to teach about adding texture. We'll see what I end up with :-)

On another front, I'm excited to share that on June 28th I'll be attending the Intermediate Copic Certification class. I can't wait to learn new things and work more on my coloring skills. It's an ALL DAY class from 9am to 8pm!!!! I'm going to be tired at the end of the day but good thing I have the following day off work! We leave for a short family summer vacation to Palm Springs for a few days that Saturday. So between coloring and vacation, I'm going to be one happy camper!

Stay tuned tomorrow for pictures!

Happy Crafting,
