Hi friends! Happy Friday! Whew...it's been a week, lemme tell ya! I was in LA for two days for work and generally running around like a crazy person. Today is all about preparing for CHA! WAHOOOOOO! The CHA bus (my car) leaves tomorrow and I cannot wait! I am going to finally meet some of the amazing ladies of the Taylored Expressions Baker's Dozen and also hook up with lots of my crafty friends from all over the country. Right now I'm in panic mode...what to pack? How much stuff to bring? What do I wear? Did I remember the gazillion chargers for everything? Do I have a big enough memory card for my camera? Tomorrow morning I'll be on the road and leaving my cares behind and heading towards crafty adventures.
I am going to try to blog post via my iPhone from the convention. I'm not really sure how that's going to go! You can't format pictures or text...and you send your posts via an email! I will try it and I would be grateful if you guys would give me feedback along the way. Also, I'm going to post pictures from the floor onto my 'A Blog Called Wanda' facebook page. So, if you want to "like" me then you can follow along with me that way. This is all new!
I can't believe I'm finally going to a CHA Convention! I want to say a big giant thank you to Taylor for inviting me as her guest. I am truly grateful to be a part of her team.
Okay...I do have a card to share today too! My sweet friend Teadub had a baby two weeks ago! This is her third little bundle of joy and he is super cute! She is such a cool mom - so mellow and patient with her kids. They are a bunch of cuties! So I made her a baby card and got that off in the mail to her last week.
All the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye True Blue paper collection. I love it because it's cute but not cutesy. Nice warm, happy colors, just right for a baby boy! That bear stamp is one of the first stamps I ever bought! The sentiment is from PTI.
I layered my strips (1 inch wide) onto another sheet of paper. I love all the patterns together like that.
Don't you love orange and aqua together? I do! I used white core papers so I could sand the edges to make the color a bit softer.
Here are my Copic colors - just a few.
