I am excited! When I was in Indiana last month, I found out that there was going to be another class this month that I really wanted to attend. I have been going back and forth trying to decided if I was going or not. I really wanted to go but didn't know how excited Kip would be about me going out of town without him again and so soon. I mean, he understood the Girl's Weekend trip to celebrate my 40th birthday, but I thought it would be a little harder to convince him that I needed to take another road trip to celebrate the six week anniversary of my 40th birthday! I am fortunate to have a very supportive and encouraging husband that understands my crafting addiction. On June 27th, I will be making another almost five hour road trip to Indiana to my favorite stamp store in the entire world, Papertrix. Honestly, I am like a six year old at Disney World in that place! The class is being taught by Karen Lockhart and will cover coloring pencil techniques. It is actually a Beginner class, and Intermediate class and an Advanced class all in one day. The class lasts all day and will cover techniques at each level. Some of them I have never even hear of before! Have a great night!

Motorcycle Riley Guest DT Entry
This is another card I made for the Hanna Stamps Guest Designer call. All the details are here if you want to play along. First, I started by stamping Riley with Memento ink and coloring him and the motorcycle with Copic markers. Then I used Nestabilities to punch out my image and the black frame. I purposely punched it so that Riley is a little off center so that it looks like he is racing out of the frame! I wanted another touch of color and knew if I added another layer of card stock that it would cover part of my background so I inked the edges f the image panel with CTMH Orange ink. What do you think of that background? I first saw my friend Julie use aluminum foil to emboss with a couple of weeks ago and had to try it for myself. Here I used the Skulls embossing folder from Cuttlebug. the sentiment is from a Clear Dollar Stamps Tool set. Paper is from DCWV, brads are from Jo-Ann's and the foil is from my kitchen.
