The ladies from Totally Stampalicious came over and showed us a few tips on how to use the Copic Markers. These ladies were awesome and a good time was had by all. The weather was a bit nerve racking for a few. Big Flakes and blowing wind. Oh well we had fun. So here are the cards/tags we made, it is an art that will need practice but for my first class, not bad. Thanks again Joycelyn and Becky, and do go on over to their blogs and give them some love.

Happy Birthday

Hello again, boy I am on a roll today. So this color combo I found over at The Play Date Cafe #57 Thanks to them, I could make another boy card. I didn't have any monster truck stamps, and I figured that he would like one on his card, so found out that clipart worked. I put the gray cardstock with the diamond plate embossing folder thru the Big Shot and then Versa marked it, and then silver embossing powder and heat embossed, wow, looks way better up close.
Thanks for stopping by, now I have a Huge mess to clean up.
Remember to stop on over to play along with the 4 Crafty Chicks tomorrow.
