Oh my badness, what a day we’ve had today! Carolyn King (cammie on SCS) and Sharon Coleman (stampscout on SCS) came to Jeanne’s this morning. Carolyn came to hang with us for a couple of hours, but Sharon came to stay the entire day. I had already met Carolyn earlier this week and she is just to durn cute and such a gorgeous smile! Sharon was one of the Original Challenge Chasers on SCS, along with Jeanne, myself and a few others. I had talked to her every day for a couple of years, and had never met her until today!! I met an Instant Friend today – WOO HOO!!!! We had so much to talk about and catch up on. I knew we had a lot in common, but to be able to sit side by side and chat – OMG what a thrill!

Sharon and Carolyn both wanted coloring lessons today. So we started out coloring with reinkers/stamp pads. When we broke for lunch, Carolyn had to leave us, but I was able to take this picture before she did. From left to right are Jeanne, Sharon, Carolyn and myself.

After lunch, we colored some more, moving into Prismacolor Pencils and then Copic Markers. We all got at least one card done today, but got a few more images colored ready to go on others. Here’s Jeanne, the teacher, giving Sharon lessons on different styles of coloring and blending.

When Sharon left today, I could have cried (well actually, I did get a little weepy feeling, but held back the tears). I gave her a big hug goodbye and hope to visit another time!!!! What a great day today!!!!! Oh and get this, I actually said ya’ll out loud today! I haven’t done that in years – well since I moved from my hometown near Louisville (pronounced lou-a-vul) and moved to the Chicago area.

When we were coloring with the reinkers this morning, I couldn’t resist Jeanne’s Whippersnapper stamps any longer. After I colored the image, I checked on today’s Color Challenge on Splitcoast and decided I could make it work with the challenge. The background paper is the new BasicGrey Figgy Pudding that I found at Jacksonbelle Embellishments.
