RAK request & some Gina K class cards

Yesterday my sister had to have her cat put to sleep. This was awful and unexpected news and she is heartbroken. If any of you have an extra card laying around, she could really use some happy mail right now. If you want to send a card, please leave me a message or send an email and I will get her address to you.

On a much happier note, last night my sister and I went to a OMS/prismacolor pencil class at the Gina K Designs retail store (this was a good distraction for my sis after her terrible day). The weather here was awful and we were half hour late due to traffic but we made it, and I'm so glad because it was a lot of fun. The class was taught by the expert herself, Gina K. I learned a lot and got to make 3 awesome cards. I am also signed up for 2 more classes with her in the near future and I can't wait...watercoloring using Sakura glaze pens and a Copic marker tutorial class. Here are the 3 cards we made last night:

Another Changito Card

I just love the Changito monkey stamps! This is the card that I had just started working on when our pipe broke. It is a bit plain but I still like it. Once again Changito was colored using Prismacolor markers. I cut the tag out of chipboard using my Cuttlebug and covered it with cardstock. The dp used was from this awesome package of 12x12 cs weight dp I got at SAMS Club, I just love it!

Finally got to do a little stamping!

I finally did a little stamping last night. My stamp room is a complete wreck but I did find some C.C. Designs images sitting on my table that I had already colored so I decided to do something with them. Images are colored with prismacolor markers. I used my FAVORITE Quickie Glue Pen to do the glitter (using SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter). If you haven't tried one of these pens, I strongly suggest trying it out. You can get them for $1.99 from (I have found them locally at Archiver's but they are $2.99). They work AWESOME for glitter work in small areas! You can click on the image for a closer look. I hope you all have a terrific is extremely cold here (last I checked the wind chill was -31) so we won't be venturing out anywhere today. Stay warm!

Natural Beauty

I don't have anything stamping related to post today. It has just been a strange couple days. The weather here totally sucks, I have no motivation to do anything...etc. etc.
Instead I thought I would post a picture that I took of Annabelle a couple days ago.

A long day...

Today was a long day. Nothing in particular going on, just a long day. I spent most of the day cleaning and doing laundry. No stamping, unfortunately.
Since I've been posting pictures from some of my favorite stampers, today I thought I would post some gorgeous western themed cards and some cute Bella cards. All of these great examples were made by my dear friend Mary (mwebb on SCS). Mary is, in my opinion, an expert at coloring with Sakura glaze pens. I've never seen anyone else come close to the job she does with them. For more great cards check out her gallery on SCS.
