Mesa Rubber Stamp Show
I haven't been in the mood to make any cards since my Mom passed away but after spending the day yesterday demoing for the lovely Maribeth of QKR Stampede I'm itching to get back at it! I'm in Mesa, Arizona for 6 weeks & noticed on facebook that Maribeth was looking for someone to help out so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm glad I did! Maribeth & her husband Lee were charming & I had a wonderful time showing a bunch of crazy crafters like me the beautiful technique of using gold leaf. I have never been to a stamp show before (they never come to poor old Winnipeg) so this was a real eye opener for me! I can't believe how many people were there...& especially how many men! I got to check out all the adorable stamps that QKR has....& now have a list a mile long of ones I want! I found time to wander around & part with some money. I found a new "girlfriends" stamp that I just had to have, some new Memory Box & Spellbinder dies & of course the gold leaf & "sticky powder" which I had never heard of. If you haven't seen QKR or Eureka stamps you have to check them out! I have my Christmas card image for this year...an adorable snowman & bird from QKR. Now, hopefully I will have a card to show you in a day or two. I only have a few supplies here with me but I'm sure I can come up with something. Hope you are all well & crafting lots!
