The Cheerleaders...meet Prom Queen
Yesterday I went down to China Phoenix 2 and stayed pretty much all day. My friend Kathy was teaching a class, so we were able to squeeze in a nice long visit afterwards. Plus, I was able to hang out with all the other cool people that were in and out of the store. I just love that place! If you live in or around Albuquerque and are even remotely interested in paper crafts of any sort, you should pay a visit to this awesome store. You will never meet a nicer, more welcoming group of people :D
Today I am featuring the third card I will be teaching in the morning on March 20th. I am calling this class, The "Cheer" leaders, based on the quirkiness of the Stampotique characters I am using and the surliness of the word stamps. These gals are anything but "cheery", HOWEVER...they do make me smile every time I see them. I just can't help myself! I was shooting for a bit of sarcasm with this set of cards and I think that has been achieved. Sorry if I offend anyone with today's card, but let's be honest, we all have a friend or two (or 12) that we could easily apply this sentiment to ;D In fact, on several occasions, I can apply this sentiment to myself...LOL!!
By the way, the "cheer" leaders names...Perl, Moth Fab, and Prom Queen...were all designated by Stampotique and are not manifestations of my bizarre brain, in case you're wondering ;D AND...on a follow up note, I picked up several more of the new Stampotique characters yesterday at the store, along with some new word stamps and let me tell you, they are DOOZIES!! I am thinking that the month of April will bring more cards using these fab images!
Have a great weekend and be sure to take time to create a lil' some'in, some'in :)
