Amused… and a giveaway!

Hello!

Been prepping for my big classes this weekend.  All is good – I think I finished with the cutting and such tonight.  Colin helped me paint 120 die cuts with Distress Crackle Paint tonight. Notice how his work area was MUCH neater than mine.  He did about 40 of them.  What a great helper.  He is meticulous.

Love that little dude.  By the way, that is the my new favorite die – the Styled Label from Tim Holtz.  It rocks.  You can use it with the Cuttlebug or Big Shot or anything.  SO cool.  You can see it HERE.

Thought I would share some fun I had with the Hero Arts and Amuse Blog Swap this week.  You can see all the fun by checking out both of their blogs HERE and HERE.  I was honored to swap on the day with the wonderfully adorable Julie.  She rocks. 

For this one for my hot hubby, I took three pieces of white string and colored one with a blue Copic and one with a red Copic and braided…

With simple stamped images like these, I really like to use THIS glitter pen to add some fun shine…

I am so incredibly in love with Amuse's patterned papers.  THIS one is my favorite – lovin' the tiny tiny tiny gingham.  Sweet.

Glossy Accents adds the perfect touch to these pencils…

This last one here uses a Sizzix embossing folder.  I really like their folders since they cover the entire front of a card.  I actually have an extra set of these folders that I wanted to giveaway.  I picked a random winner from a comment from yesterday… and the winner is jessanotherhess.  (BTW… that is how I am giving prizes now – unannounced and given to someone who left a comment on a random day.  Makes it more of a RAK.)

Oh, and I am very behind on my Formspring Q&A page.  However, I promise to get back to it in a week or so.  So sorry.  But when I teach big classes like these, I put my all into it and really want to give a great class.  It sucks up my time. πŸ™‚

Night!
