Yesterday I dropped of a 22 1/2 lb box filled with 747 cards that will be part of the packages that the Blue Star Mothers are preparing to send to our deployed soldiers. Their next and final shipment for 2011 will be in November. The boxes will be filled with necessities that can't always be obtained plus some holiday cheer for those serving throughout the holiday season. To find out more about this worthy organization and what they will need for the boxes please go to http://www.rgvnmbsm.org/
So all my card making friends, while your sitting in front of the TV watching all the new shows, grab some of those cards you have received and just can't bear to get rid of and re purpose them. Cut off the front, adhere to a card back, place in an envelope and there you go, one more card that someone will really appreciate ... now on to the next card ... repeat ...
Drop them off at China Phoenix 2 or Scraps Galore clearly marked with my name or Blue Star Mothers! Now wasn't that simple *Ü* Seriously, thank you all for the donations, let's keep them coming. Any questions email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay tuned their is one more charity that I support all year long but will be asking for your help during the holiday season! Coming soon ...
Thank you one & all for the birthday wishes via text, facebook & email ... it was a wonderful day! It started off with teaching at Scraps Galore, which we all know I love teaching only second to creating! Thank you for the cards, wishes, singing and sharing treats! You all made my day special. Then Evan, Alex & I went to see Brides Maids and had a good laugh, followed by dinner. Tonight the four of us will go out to eat again since Sami was working last night ... so the celebration continues! At the Tuesday class at CP2 we will be celebrating all the September birthdays so remember to bring your cards. See you then. Here's Tuesday card for those of you who like a sneak peak ...
Tim's water color technique with distress ink pads ...
speaking of DI did you see his limited release colors?
Hello all, I'm on a roll ... here is next weeks card!
(I also have the sample for the following week done, teehee)
I kept it simple since so many of you had issues with this weeks card ... we are using distress inks to color the main image. For those of you that have copic's feel free to bring them if you so desire!
We will also be using the Tim Holtz ink blending tool, so there is some technique involved!
Our September party will be on the 20th, celebrating Shay, Rene, Flo, Lucky, Amy, Valerie and me!
Time is zipping by and I still haven't post pics of the most incredible classes I have ever taken ... Tim Holtz. After reading my friend's Cheryl's blog about this weekend I realized that she put into words exactly how I felt ... so head on over there and take a look at her pics and read about our wonderful journey with Tim ... http://inktrap.blogspot.com/2011/08/tim-holtz-weekend-in-roswell.html
Here are a few pictures ...
The fabulous talented & funny gal Cheryl, so glad we got to know each other!
The gang with Tim ... Rochelle, Cindy, me, Shay, Cheryl & Marilyn
Shay getting some one on one time with Tim ... I don't think she is hearing a word he is saying!
Tim realizes I'm snapping pictures and strikes a pose ... Shay's heart is beating quite rapidly!
Of course I have to show me with the man of the hour!
Here are the wonderful things we created!
Here's the whole class, I had to swipe the photo from Tim since I didn't have one!
I have tons of pictures of Tim, but this one is by far my favorite!
Well that's my quick journey of my weekend, time to get back to work!
