Schedule Change

Hi everyone!
I wanted to let you know that I am going to have to cancel the Cropper's Club and Thinking Inking Class in August.  My kids are going to be arriving in town on the 13th for a wedding over the weekend and I want to be home to see them!  They will only be in town a couple of days and Benny is also scheduled to fly out on the 19th for his AIT training.  It is so important for us to have some family time and I know you will all understand!  Stay tuned for Tim's 12 tags of Christmas 2009 starting up Fridays in September!!!!

In the meantime I wanted to share another card that is a part of the Webster's Pages All Occasion Card Class scheduled for August 28th.  I have been so inspired by these papers and I hope you like what I've come up with!!

Here is a close-up of the flowers!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

I can't believe that tomorrow is Friday already!!  Where has the time gone?  I'm so sorry that I am late posting our project for tomorrow, but here it is!!!  We are going to be working with Tim's Holtz' embossing folders!!  The Patchwork Texture Fades embossing folder is my favorite to date!!!  Look at all the detail in this embossed image and the distressing inks make  the texture come alive!!! Stop on by Simply Fresh Arts from 6-9 on Friday and give this fun technique a try!! We will also be working with Rock Candy Crackle Paint which is always a fun technique to play with!!  
I was thrilled to have 12 tag makers last Friday and Here are some of the photos that we took during the festivities:

These hands belong to our very own Wendy!!!  Gorgeous work girl!!!
