Happy New Year & Happy New Cards 1,2,3 Class!

I hope everyone had a happy and safe New Year's evening.  We were totally the oldest, boring-est people possible - Mel playing his guitar most of the night and me playing in my office; both of us in bed before midnight.  Oh the excitement.

While our last day of 2012 might not have been very exciting, I'm kind of excited about the change in my card classes.  Being able to concentrate on a select few images is helping me feel like I'm actually getting my money's worth when I purchase them.  To sum up the change in the class going forward, I'll be featuring 4 images from one single company each quarter.  Cards 1 will showcase each of these images colored with Copics. Cards 2 & Cards 3 will have the same images but will each utilize different techniques.  Quarter 1 will feature embossing powder and foil.  I'm planning on incorporating coloring when and where I can so don't leave your markers at home for those classes.

The stamps arrived just prior to Christmas so last night was the first real chance I've had to just play a little with them.  I've got the Cards 1 versions done and posted to the Class Projects tab.  I hope to get Cards 2 & Cards 3 done in the next day or two.  I've got lots of ideas, I just need the time to sit down and make them happen!

Here's a peak at one of the Cards 1 projects.
Please excuse the photo.  One of the things I want to try to do better/more in the new year is to photograph my cards rather than scan them.  This necessitates a learning curve & I hope you won't hold it against me or the projects sacrificed during that time.  :)  I'd love any tips/tricks/suggestions or ideas to help with this.
