Can You Believe It?

Two posts in two days!! I'm challenging myself to post more often to the blog now that I know that there are people out there reading it. LOL

Emma is very excited because this Sunday she gets to be my "assistant teacher" for our semi-annual mother/daughter craf-tea. We did this in the fall and it was great fun! She did a great job of reminding people that the proper way to ink a stamp is to tap, tap, tap and explaining the best way to use the gelly glaze pens. She helped me make the samples for this weekend's class yesterday. I asked her which thing was her favorite and she couldn't decide. Though she did keep holding the "buggy" card up to her cheek and saying "I love this card". If you are interested in joining us this Sunday, please let me know by Friday. You can stop by any time between 1:30 and 5:30, but plan to spend 2 hours to finish your projects. The projects are designed so that all ages -- from elementary age girls to teens to adults will enjoy them. And you don't have to have a mother or daughter to bring with you. The class is $8/person, which includes all of your supplies, refreshments, and door prizes.

Remember, the gelly glaze pens that I mentioned above. Well, we used the souffle glaze pens -- a cousin to the gelly glaze pens, but they work better on dark paper -- to make this card at the Flying Lessons for my team. We used Swirly Gigs -- one of my favorite sets from the spring supplement -- and stamped that on black with Cloud White Versamagic ink. Then we colored the swirly's in with the souffle pens. The flower stamp from the swirly gig set was stamped with black on white and then colored with markers.
