I created this card for this weeks TSG20 Partially Popped challenge over on the TSG blog. I popped up some of the leaves, clouds and the birds. What fun! The tree was colored with YG01, YG03 and YG05 Copic markers. The grass, birds and clouds are all pieced and popped from My Mind's Eye cardstock. The tree trunk is pieced with wood grain cardstock from Amuse. I created the background by putting the four itty bitty music notes on one block and stamping repeatedly. The inside has a little paper pieced bird and the sentiment "Just droppin' you a line..." For a bit of sparkle, I colored the leaves, birds and clouds with Spica Glitter pens in Green, Orange and Pink
Stamps: Happy Day Set-There She Goes Clear Stamps Cardstock: Cream from Stash, All prints- My Mind's Eye Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black Extras: Ribbon, Copics, Spica Glitter Pens

Well, here it is! My card for the TSG19 sketch challenge from last Monday. It really is the 11th hour for this card! It is 11:00 pm and I am finally finished and ready to post. I have had this card in my head since I saw the sketch on Monday. This week was a busy one, with getting DH off on his fishing trip and all. Men! Why can't they ever find their socks......he is in Mexico.....I say go barefoot! The fish won't care!Oh, I digress, the base cardstock is from the DCWV Spring Cardstock Stack (I think I have had this for 2 years, maybe 3), the rest of the cardstock is from the Basic Grey Marrakech 6 x 6 paper pad. All of the stamps used were from the TSG Treemendous set. Isn't that tiny bird the cutest? The brad is from Kaisercraft's Pennyroyal collection (range - if your talking to an Aussie) :) The inks are: Adirondack Espresso and Lettuce for the tree and Memento Cantaloupe and Potter's Clay for the leaves. The little bird is Memento Bahama Blue. I better run, so I can add this to Mr. Linky on the TSG blog.
Today I have a sneak peek to share with you. I will be heading to Green Tangerines in Rocklin, CA next Saturday to teach a group of gals about Copic Markers. After a bit of time learning about the markers, they will complete one card using the Whoooo Owls from Stampendous and one using the Santa Gift stamp from Hero Arts.For my local gals at The Cat's Meow, you will create these two, plus one more in my October 31st (I think) class. I have a boatload of classes (4) planned for October, so be sure to check with Sharon to sign up. ETA: Have passport, will travel to teach........hello Ireland or Germany or Australia ..........I am waiting to here from you. :=) Stamping hugs,

How surprised was I this morning when I sat down with my trusty cup of coffee, turned on the lappy and started going through my Google reader only to find that I had been chosen for the Trendsetting Spotlight on the There She Goes blog. What a great way to start my day! You can read all about it here.
Thank you Jessica and the TSG Team!
