I've been Certified!!

Hello All! Long time no post...have been a bit mojoless over the past couple of weeks. I think it must be the thought of all the Christmas cards I still need to make!

Anyhow, my mojo got a kick up the backside at the weekend! Went to a lovely hotel in Berkshire (along with Bev, Caz & Sarah) to learn how to use Copic markers professionally, and emerge a.......

Sorry! Have regained my composure!! Yes, I am now Copic certified, so I have been desperate to practice all the tips and techniques that I have learnt over the weekend. Unfortunately I can't take my pens into meetings with me, so I am colouring like crazy when I get home! The course was really informative - and it was the first certification course to run in the UK. It was run by Wendy Kadzidlo of (Stamps and Memories) and Karen Watson. It was lovely to meet new people there too (hello all!).

As I was really close, I was able to drop off some samples at The Stamp Attic. This card below is one of them. It is a Woodware image, and Crate Paper DP. I loved the colours - not at all traditional, but are clearly Christmassy!
The sentiments are one stamp that I have split stamped to frame the image. It is from one of the excellent Hero Arts Christmas sentiment sets (CL343 Holiday Sayings). The cardstock is a lovely neutral Bazzill, which matches the paper really nicely.

Thanks for visiting! Kxx
