SC234: cutie pie

blog tag

SOOOOOO…….i am STILL recovering from all the shenanigans of a high school graduation/family in town.  my (ex) in-laws (i love them) left monday and took the 16 YO with them,  they sat on their plane on the runway for 4 1/2 hours!!!  then their flight was cancelled so they spent the night in a hotel and made it tosan diego yesterday.  i also dropped my mom off at the airport yesterday and then i will pick my brother up saturday afternoon for a BRIEF visit and then drop him BACK off at the airport sunday – YIKES!  he gets research funding from NIH and has to fly up here to present every few months so he always squeezes in a stop here afterward and then heads back home to birmingham.  unfortunately my *spare room* is in my craft room – it’s actually all in one big area in the basement BUT when i have folks here they are always sleeping when i would normally be crafting SO not much done lately and i am way behind with some deadlines.  ONE of which includes the not yet released SEI christmas lines – OH WOW!  they arrived yesterday and they are both OH SO YUMMY so you will want to watch out for those next month when CHA starts.

i DO have a little card for you today tho.  it is actually half my mom’s – she is an artist and does many of my stamp designs including all the nestie frames i have been using lately.  she had never used copics and never does any stamping though.  so she played with them a bit and here is one of her images.  i used an alcohol inked piece from my alcohol ink demo class and some nana’s kitchen paper:



 it was kind of funny (and kind of not) how we all struggle so much learning to use the copics and she just sat down and colored it right up with no effort.

however she has such a long history in art in all manner of mediums and also teaches art classes soooo…….
