Copics, Cards and Chatting with an Old Friend

I shared in my last post that I was going to a crop with Melanie, my oldest friend in the whole world (since we were five).  I just love that we have this scrappy habit in common and that we are able to sit at a table together amongst other friends to make art. 

This card is just one of the cards that I made on Saturday.  The image is from a stamp that I got in the dollar bin (!) at Michaels and is colored with my beloved copic markers.  I'm still learning the whole shading thing with these magical markers, but I think I did pretty well on this image.

This image on the right is another favorite.
The image was sent to me by an image angel from Splitcoast Stampers and is just adorable, don't you think?  I know that Valentine's Day is months away, but I just couldn't resist making this card.  I mean, look at that cute image. 
It's hard to see in the picture, but I used a little diamond glaze on the soap and bubbles and popped up the little heart and bar of soap.  I wish I had more than one of this adorable image.  It was so much fun to color. 

I had so much fun on Saturday with Melanie.  I was there from morning to night and only made eight cards. Thank you Melanie for including me in your group and for such a fun day!

Hello There, Long Time No Original Post

I am struggling with this whole blogging idea.  I just don't know if I have that much to say.  Don't get me wrong, there is a lot going on in my life.  Two weeks ago I enjoyed the company of almost 300 of my closest friends (seriously -- 300) at a reunion of the Jewish youth group that I belonged to in the 70s, B'nai Brith Youth Organization/B'nai Brith Girls.  It was amazing to see so many people that I shared my teenage years (and all of those milestones of life) with.  This is a picture of myself and three lovely women with whom I have been friends with for many, many years.  In fact, the two women on the right and left, Melanie and Glenda respectively, I have been friends with since kindergarten.  Yes, you read that right.  In fact, Glenda's Mom and my Mom were co-leaders of our brownie troop.  The lovely lady in Blue, Jody, we met when we were around thirteen.  We were all so happy that night and hopefully we will all continue to stay connected.  Facebook and email will make this easier.

Because this is a blog about my jewelry, this is one of my newer pieces.  It's jasper and bali silver and really looks lovely on.

Hope you all have an amazing weekend.  I am meeting Melanie (from the picture above) on Saturday for a crop with her scrapbooking friends.  I'm really looking forward to seeing her and making art with my old friend.

Enjoy your days and talk to you all soon.
