Pictures from the NH Convention

Julia Aston (artystamper) and I spent the weekend in Manchester NH at the CK Scrapbook Convention as demos for Rubbernecker stamps.  We spent Friday on our feet from 9 to 6, and we were really tired.

I was demoing The Beach, a Kittie Kit, making samples and chatting with those who were stampers and scrappers as well.  I really enjoyed meeting so many wonderful and creative women (and a few men too!).  This is my stamping area..pic taken by Julia.
Here is Julia, and this time I took the picture.  She was demonstrating what could be done with sponging and masking beautiful sets of baskets and vases full of flowers.  On Saturday, we worked from 9 to 5, and by the end of the convention, we were EXHAUSTED.  We had a wonderful time, but we were glad to go home to our own beds, and have our feet up!

Dave, the Rubbernecker stamps owner, was delighted to tell us we were responsible for breaking all the previous numbers of sales by almost DOUBLE. I guess we did well for him.  We're doing it again in June in Springfield MA.  I think we're just gluttons for punishment!!  Thanks Julia for a great weekend, my friend!!

Happy Birthday in Blue

Here's a card I made as a catch-up.......I was away Thursday until last night.  Then Mom and I went to her house to pack up more stuff, and so I didn't get to QFTD and Speedy's Challenge until now.

I cased Holly's card, keeping the dog theme, and for Speedy, the challenge was to use mostly blue.

I couldn't find a great match of ink for the paper, so I added some RED!  That fixes everything!  Have a fun day.  I'm off to watch the RED Sox.
