Sketch and a class

Today I am posting the card I made for this weeks sketch challenge over at Our Craft Lounge.  It is a beautiful sketch, probably as close to a CAS card I will ever get (LOL)!  The stamp set was designed by Kisa and is based on her children.  It is truly beautiful!
This image is printed on Neenah Solar White, colored with copics.  The DP are scraps with ocean prints from my scrap basket.  The ribbon is embossed in white with shells (hard to photograph).  It came from Inky Inspirations as a freebie when I placed an order with them.  The punch is EK success.  Very quick and simple card once I figured out how to NOT put on "all that extra stuff"!

I spent today at Memories of Time (my LSS) in Coos Bay, Oregon.  Cami and Kisa had a copics coloring day that lasted for *gasp* HOURS.  It was a blast.  Their partner in OCL, Joy and a couple of copic gurus from Portland came down to play with us also.  They gave away cool kits to everyone who came-OCL stamp sets, Copic refill, flowers, perfect pearls from Ranger (Tim is a friend on Joy's and gave her them to give us!) and a spray mister bottle.  They also did name drawings all day long.  I won one which had a couple of hero arts stamps, a package of flowers from kaiser, x-press it high tack tape sample roll and a package of self stick gems from kaiser!  What a haul!  All this and we also got some great tips on working with copics.  Especially "Just Do It"  which was Cami's battle cry for the day.  Below are the cards and the tag that I completed while at the class.  The images are all from Our Craft Lounge.

This was a really great day.  Nice people, good instructors and some really good food!
