Well hello there!  Here it is Tuesday afternoon and I’ve finally been able to sit down and write a blog post.  Yesterday was workout day and once I got home I started in on finishing up some class samples.  YES, I said class samples.  It was announced in The Queen’s Ink Newsletter that I’ll be there in June teaching some classes using Spellbinders™ Die Templates and Graphic 45 papers.  To be exact, I’ll be there the weekend of June 8, 9 and 10.  I’ll be teaching a Chunky Tag and an altered picture frame so far.  I have one more class planned but I’m waiting on product to arrive at my door step so I can finish up a sample.  I’ve got some samples to post in a few days so you can see what the fuss has been all about!

I’m pondering making enough samples for these classes that I’ll have some left over and then I can offer some classes for you local gals (Kentucky/Indiana area) as well.  What do you think about that?

The other day I mentioned that I had visited my friends from Our Daily Bread Designs at the stamp show last weekend.  One of my purchases that day was a poppy stamp from their booth.  Now I’ve searched their website every which way I can, and have only found the stamp in a set – Serve the Lord.   I purchased it as a single, Crocheted Poppy.  You know it’s hard for me to pass up a good flower stamp!

So anyho, here’s what I came up with . . . I started coloring it on Saturday evening when I got in.


The paper is some that I also picked up at the show, My Mind’s Eye Union Square – Rosy.  I just noticed that eclectic Paperie also has it, and it’s on sale!  (guess I should have waited to buy it)

I didn’t like the harshness of the border with the flower, so I went around it with a Stardust pen.  Hoping you can see the shimmer in the close-up.  If you can’t, click on the image to make it larger!


The seam binding is some extra that I had in the drawer (probably dyed with Antique Linen in varying shades) that I just grabbed and threw it together.

For those interested, here are the Copic Markers that I used.


When I was at the stamp show, Gary Burlin gave me one of his Copic Coloring Charts . . . boy is it easy to see what colors to use now!

I guess that’s all I have today . . . well at least my mind is telling me that!  Thanks for stopping by and remember  . . .  life is short, embrace the adventures that come your way today!

  1. Sherry, I am so excited! I’m coming to Savage for your classes — ALL of them (I hope — I went to the website, that weekend isn’t listed so I’ve emailed them and I’m forwarding this to a friend who DOES get their newsletter to see if she’s heard about it (and wants to come with me). I may even get a hotel if you have any time for dinner! Or anything! Have you been to DC? Want me to bring you??

  2. PS. ODBD does sell singlets at shows that are only available in sets otherwise. I got their cornucopia that way — I didn’t want the whole set just for the cornucopia and I was thrilled! 🙂

  12. Sherry, I was looking back at your April 3rd post and saw in the copic list that you had the numbers written on some of them. Was wondering what you did this with?
