Saturday, I finally got to meet some Splitcoast Stampers! Phyllis (HUTstamper), in the center of the pic, arranged for some of us in the greater Pittsburgh area to get together at a local scrapbook shop. Who was there? HUTstamper, CharmWarm, chickers089, epiphany, GolfCat69, inkyfingersinpa, M_A_N_D_Y, Nicely Done, seasonalstamper, Sherialane, s_anthony, Vicky Gould. The shop had a great crop area, and we had a wonderful time together. So many laughs. What a great bunch of ladies. Thanks to you all.
This is one of the cards I got done during our get together. I thought this cute whale from Stampin' Up's Whale Wishes set would make a darling baby card. I pressed the whale into the bashful blue ink pad, then colored over the words with my Night of Navy marker, and stamped onto Paper Accents pearlized white. I stamped the seaweed with Old Olive, then ran my aquapainter over it to smear the ink around a bit, giving it a more overall "greenness". The sentiment is from Curvy Verses, the background papers from Basic Grey's Gypsy line.
