Welcome! I'm starting to feel like a stranger to my own blog these days. I'm in South Carolina visiting my family for a few days, having taught a couple of Copic Workshop classes in Charlotte, NC, this past weekend. The Charlotte group was delightful--I thoroughly enjoyed being there! My trip there, however, was less than delightful. Some people have travel issues, and I'm one of them. ;-) My Friday morning flight was cancelled on Thursday morning due to an incoming snow and ice storm. So I had to leave on Thursday from a different airport and had only two hours to pack for both class and the trip on to SC after class. Then our departure was delayed an hour, meaning that we (son and I) missed the connecting early flight to Charlotte from Detroit. That's okay--Delta got us there, and that counts. After class and packing up/shipping on Saturday, we were supposed to take an Amtrak train from Charlotte to our little town in Upstate South Carolina. Unfortunately, the Yellow Cab (pre-scheduled at 10pm for 1:20am) never showed up. A second taxi company was called and promised to be there in 15 minutes. They never came either. (I couldn't make this up if I tried--honest!) Half an hour before the train was supposed to leave, I begged the desk attendant at our hotel to send someone in the hotel shuttle to get us to the train station. We arrived at the station thirteen minutes before the train left, and got on the train three minutes before it left. Really. It's *always* an adventure. . .
Before I left I was able to get a few cards finished anyway, so I actually do have something to share today--besides travel woes! The card above was for a sweet kid-let friend, using the MFT Pure Innocence Wish You Were Here stamp set.
These were the Copic Markers that I used, along with a Brown Copic 0.1 Multiliner with which I drew some wood texture into the bench.
I used a Spellbinders Classic Rectangles LG die template to cut and emboss the focal image, a Charmed I'm Sure die template for the sentiment tag (evidently out of stock), and On the Edge for that heart border. I dyed the seam binding with some Copic B95 and colorless blender. Papers are from Carta Bella's Cool Summer 6 x 6 paper pad. That's it for tonight's card! Here's hoping that your travel adventures aren't quite as adventuresome as mine. ;-}
