scacd vault is open again!

hi all!

i am SO excited today – i am headed out of town with my buddy Suzanne Dean for a quick trip to Ohio where she is teaching a couple Copic classes.  i wish wish wish i could make it on more trips with her!  and best of all i get to see my pal Ann Shuman too YAY!  ann is my longest term blog reader and most prevalent commenter which i love!  the trip will be super quick but i know it will be fun and i could use a little mini getaway!

Today Susana is releasing some Holiday Peekers from the vault at SCACD and i get to present one for y’all:

and yes – martha stewart got ahold of those bird houses before they were put on the wreath and glittered them right up as only martha can!  the chipboard pieces are also available at SCACD and are painted with Perfect Pearls and water – mixes up quick and easy for a great shimmering paint.  i made sure to sand the edges lightly with a nail file before inking the edges because the ink does not stick well to the paint.

she is colored with colored pencils and i used spica glitter pens for the birdhouses and some sparkly fluff for the edge of her coat and tops of her boots.

These Christmas Peekers are available in the store NOW.  if you live outside of the US (overseas) you can get them from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie.

this will be my last post as a member of the SCACD DT.  I have been on the team for nearly two years and great friends with susana for even longer but i needed to make some changes for myself and one of them was lightening my workload and my deadlines.  of course i will continue using items from her store and we’ll always be friends!
