The Perl

Good Morning! It has been a gorgeous couple of days here in Albuquerque. Looks like we're going to be in the 60s today. The skies are blue and clear, and it would be a great day to do something outside. Okay, that's it for my impression of Al Roker! LOL! I'm not a meteorologist, but I've seen one on TV...! That makes me an expert, right? ...NOT!

I'm teaching a class on March 20th at my favorite stamp store in the world, China Phoenix 2. It will feature the 3 muertos themed cards I created and blogged about in February using some images by Bombshell Stamps. My class is in the afternoon and the morning spot was going to be a class taught by my good friend Kathy. I love days when we teach together, because afterward, we hang out and chat up a storm until Nancy, the owner, has to finally throw us out...hehehe! Actually, Nancy is a sweetheart and would never do that, but I do feel a bit guilty when she closes the store and we are still there gabbing 2 hours later ;D Anyway, Kathy had to cancel her class because she is going out of town to be with her daughter who is expecting her 2nd child. She's such a great mom! I was really looking forward to our "catching up" time, but she obviously has a pretty good excuse ;D So, to keep me out of trouble, I will be teaching in Kathy's morning slot on the 20th, as well. Two classes in one day? Can I handle it? I'll let you know how it goes!

I'm just now working up some samples for the morning class and I thought I would go with some Stampotique images. I have paired 3 of the sassy girls from their stamp line designed by Jill Penney and Daniel Torrente, with some humorous sentiments that have been laying around gathering dust. I'm calling these girls, The Cheerleaders, because they are anything BUT!

The first card features Perl who I have colored with Copic markers and she has been paired with a stamp by Rubber Cottage that says "How's that workin' for ya?". Love the sarcasm! I added a bit of orange glitter glue to her headband, necklace, and bangles, but she really didn't need much more to finish her off. Just a flower and a gemstone, and she is ready to give the world some "tude" ;D

I'll be back tomorrow with another "Cheerleader" card. Ciao for now!
