Guest stampers - Mary Rozell and Ruth McGinley

Today  two customers, Mary and Ruth, came in to work in the classroom.  They have been there before.  They brought some "show and tell" to share with all of us and I was so blown away I wanted to run home and scan their cards to share with you.  The images, if I haven't posted them previously, I will add the copic marker "recipe" later.  Thanks Mary and Ruth for sharing your beautiful card making skills.  Enjoy!

This card did not scan well.  The card is all white not gray and
white.  Also the glitter on the pine boughs did not show well.

Snowflake friends

Well we have gone from the heat of summer into fall but at the store we are thinking Christmas and everyone (well most) are coming in to work on Christmas cards.  Eleanor got this Penny Black stamp in and I just thought it was so cute I had to have it....that is I "needed it", right?  This morning at "dawn-thirty" I was wide awake and decided to play with my newest acquisition. I hope you like it.  Had a great time this past weekend getting to see old friends and making new ones. I hope you got to go to the Heirloom convention in Anderson, SC.  It was small but I sure saw lots of good stuff (and bought a few goodies) I was handicapped by Bank of America when my debit card was declined because BOA thought it must of been stolen since the charges were ringing up out of state. Grrrrrr. I know it is for my protection but sure wish they could come up with some other way of letting us know WHY it is being declined.
Ok...back to my tag.  Yes, I decided to try this one on a tag instead of the usual card. I used the R85 to edge the tag.  I also used copic markers to color the snowflake brads to match my tag.
