I had a wonderful but busy weekend! On Saturday, I attended my upline meeting and had a good time stamping, chatting and catching up with friends! You can tell these are a couple of the FUN-loving ones, Kimberly and Ellen!
And Georgette and Sheilah are two of my favoritest stampers! They are just so sweet!
I am not really much of a photographer, so I didn't get many other "people" shots, but here's a quick look at the swap that I contributed (I'll show more goodies during the week):
and take a look at THIS!!! This was the raffle prize I WON!:
This was from Janis, using a template she purchased from Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho! It contains hot chocolate, marshmallows and candy!!! Mmmmmmm!
Then on Sunday, I had my own downline meeting! We did the same thing, on a much smaller scale!
Here are Sue and Penny:
The giggly ones, Athena and Shawn:
And Laura and Carol with their Halloween Sweet Centers cards designed by Mike Funke:
One of the techniques demo'ed was brayering on the new embossing folder, Petals-a-Plenty; it was brayered with white ink, a piece of Bordering Blue cardstock was then inserted, and it was run through the Big Shot. Finally, a few of the flowers were highlighted with the Silver Shimmer Paint:
The Shimmer Paint was also used to ink the poinsettia stamp from Spotlight on Christmas; sentiment is from Christmas Punch. Cardstocks are Whisper White, Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy and Brushed Silver. Here's a little better view:
I have so much more to show you! Be sure to stop back soon!
