Where have I been????

I know it's been a very long time since I last posted - there has been a number of reasons!  The first is that our internet connection has been TERRIBLE for over a week and disappeared for days at a time!!!  It's been driving me CRAZY - I think they've been upgrading the cables in the area.  I also had my Mum come to visit for a few days (which was wonderful!) and then I worked at the Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo over the long week-end followed by the Brisbane Copic Certification Class where I assisted Mandi.  It was wonderful, fun and tiring all at once!  :)  I also had the joy of meeting two of my blog friends, Leigh and Sharon, as well as lots of new friends at the Expo!!!  Leigh went all three days and made me laugh so much!!  (Leigh, I'm expecting to see lots of wonderful cards made with all those new Copics!!!)

Before the chaos I made this fun card using the Copic Feathering Technique - I've done a tutorial on the CopicOz Blog explaining how to create this look by feathering, if you give it a go, I'd love to see what you create!!!  :)  I also got to use this super fun new paper by Kaisercraft Paper called Hey Birdie topped with a panel punched with the EK success Embossed Curved Border Punch. The Miss Rosalie with Roses stamp is by CC Designs and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics!  (Markers - E00, E02, E31, E33, E35, E37, R20, YG11, YG63, Y21, RV10, RV21, 0)

Stamps - Miss Rosalie with Roses (CC Designs)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Old Olive, White, Pink Bazzill, Kaisercraft Hey Birdie DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Large Oval and Large Scallop Oval Nestabilities, EK Success Embossed Curve Border Punch, White Satin Ribbon, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!!!  :)

Cute card Kathy! Your colouring is fab! Well, speaking of internet connection, we're currently experiencing that one, too and it's NO FUN! :( So, cheer up- you're not alone, girl! LOL!

God bless you and hope to chat with you some time.

So glad you have your internet back. I hate when ours goes frustrating.

I HAVE to go check out your tutorial for the feathering technique because this image looks FANTASTIC, girl!

Hi Kathy,

It was great to meet you in person at the Scrapbook Expo! I love this card - your colouring is beautiful and as I've now had a go at the feathering in Mandi's class - I can fully appreciate just how wonderful it is!!!! (Mine was shocking!)

Wow Kathy, that feathering technique looks great!! LOVE your card. So nice to have that brief chat with you on Leigh's phone over the weekend! She had a ball down there! Please let me know if you hold any classes between here and Brisbane. I would love to learn how to use my Copics properly!

A very cute card Kathy! All that time without the internet must mean you have made plenty of cards...NOT!!

The internet has been paticularly slow up the Mountain the last 4 days, I think the cables are frozen!!

Marisa said...

I had the best time Kathy. Thank you for helping me so much. Glad I made you laugh, I was feeling a little hesitant about getting help so often. It was funny at Arnold's though. lol

Super cute card Kathy! Awesome job coloring that darling image :) Sounds like you have been a busy girl enjoying life! :)

Oh, Kathy, I understand! The month of June is so busy for lets out, graduations, Father's Day, etc. I have had trouble keeping up with my blog reader, much less posting, with the girls' birthday, my step-father's birthday, and dh's grandmother passed away last week too. Please know your loyal fans know that life gets in the way sometimes and you will return to posting your beautiful cards when you are able to :)
