Stampfest = Inspiration


I can’t begin to tell you how much fun it was going to Stampfest yesterday with my new friend Sue Morris!!  Neither one of us had ever been before and we got some really good toys and had a GREAT time!  I feel very blessed to have met her and am amazed with how much we have in common and how easy it is to talk with her.  It feels as if we have been friends forever!  We are already planning to go again next year.  I encourage you to go if you have never been!  Not only is Sue a good friend, but she is sooooooo talented herself!  She has inspired me to think outside my comfort zone and try my hand at some new techniques.  My cards are so predictable, and I don’t like that about them.  It’s time to shake it up a little bit. So here is my latest card inspired by Sue!  I am still not ready to dive into the Copic thing, so for now I am going to continue to work with Colored Pencil until I perfect my coloring skills.   I am pretty pleased with my card, love my new stamp, and am now going to enter it in the Freshly Made Sketches #21. Wish me luck!

Have a great Sunday my friends,
