I'm sharing this one before I mail it to a friend who lives in this area. I haven't seen her in a few years because we used to be a couple hours away from where they live. Since we are closer now, I'll make it a point to get to see her.
This is a stamp from a Hero Arts set that is one of my favorites to color. I searched Michaels yesterday and last night for the "perfect" stamps to teach my coloring class and I came up with some possiblilites, but nothing that I want to sing about. The coloring class is the first one on the schedule so I have to get that solidified in my mind. When I went back last night, I made a couple more cards for my card club. I also searched for paper that I can stamp and color on and came up with nothing suitable. I'll look around a little more, but I think I am just going to provide the paper for my class from my stash of GP paper.
Speaking of the card club, I know some of you are very clever. I'm not, so I need your help. I want a catchy name for my monthy card making workshop. I don't want to call it a "card making workshop", because I'm calling the other monthy class the Paper Crafting Workshop. In the card class, they will make 12 seasonal or themed cards each month that are predesigned by me. Each month I will incorporate a technique too. Think of a name and I'll send you a prize. Leave me a comment on this post with your idea. I have a pile of stuff to get rid of, so if your idea is chosen, I will send you a list and you can choose your prize. How does that sound?
