Been Busy Lately!

It seems that I've been on the go for a week non-stop. I was in Pensacola on Monday for a Copic Certification class and it was amazing. There was so much information that I felt like it was oozing out my ears by the end of the day!LOL I can't wait to develop some advanced classes around these wonderful markers. With that being said keep your eyes open on the class calendar.

Stamp Club is always a fun evening and yesterday was no exception. We did two projects using a simple idea. Here are the pictures of the card samples, and of course the ladies took it upon themselves to make the projects their own.

The first picture is an overview of the cards, while the second picture is a close up.

I can't take the credit for coming up with this wonderful idea. I saw it done on SplitCoast Stampers, and here is the link for the full tutorial.
Crimped Envelope Card
I couldn't believe how easy it was.

Well, I'm signing off for now, have to go and have some breakfast and begin my day. I have a few more projects to post, so check back when you can. My thought for today is...

Why does lemon dishsoap contain real lemons, but lemon juice is artificial flavoring? Hhmmmmmmm...

Just a Craftin' and Creatin'

I just wanted to post another card sample I've been working on. Lately I've been involved in so many ATC swaps (ATC stands for ARTIST TRADING CARDS) and I like to send a hand made card with my ATCs, so needless to say I've been a cardmaking fiend.

This one uses an old stamp of mine, that I haven't pulled out in a while, by a company out of business now, Me & Carrie Lou. I also been practicing with my Copic markers, because on Sunday I'm off to Pensacola for a Copic certification class.

Needless to say I'm extremely excited since I've been trying to get into one of these classes for about 6 months now.

Hope you enjoy the card and as always I like to leave you thinking so...

If electricty comes from electrons, does morality come from morons? Hmmm...

Trying to use my Stamps

OK, so my new year's resolution of trying to use what I have before buying anything else has been tough. I mean with companies coming out with great new stamp designs, what's a girl to do! ;-)
But I am trying to use my stash a little more frequently than never, so here are some samples that I've done up. The stamps are from Inque Boutique, and I have enjoyed using them again.
The coloring was done with Tombow markers and my Aqua Writer(Water pen). Also the diecut was done using my Cricut machine! They were simple designs but they sure did pack a punch. Then finally I had to add glitter for that special bling!

OK, of course I have to end today's post with some cerebral ramblings. The things that make you go HHmmmmmm!
Why does Hawaii have interstate highways? Hmmmm

Happy crafting everyone!
