Baby Edwin and my return!

Hello Everyone!! I have missed you all!! Yesterday was my first official day of crafting in over a month. I know I mentioned that I have images that I was going to put together and post but honestly my arm just kept taking a turn for the worse and the last thing I wanted to do was type.

I'm not 100% better but I missed playing with my wonderful stamps too much and I was afraid Spring and Easter would pass me by and I didn't get to post some of my projects.

I had a wonderful time yesterday, our local scrapbook store, A Scrapbook Store and More had a St. Patty's Day Crop! There was food, lots of friends and so much fun! I had my fingers crossed the entire time wishing I would be the winner of the FULL set of Distress Inks Markers but alas I wasn't. Boo Hoo!! I hope Nancy enjoys them!!

While I wait for my Pre-order to arrive, I have been playing with a small handful that Paula, the store owner came back from CHA with so here it is!!

I've seen a little chatter about DI Markers and watercoloring and some suggestions for different types of paper. Well here is my chatter...I use the Canson Montval 140lb Watercolor paper. I love this paper with all my DI's, it absolutely blends beautifully!!! AND you DON'T have to wet your paper before hand to blend the DI markers.

As I mentioned I had a limited supply of them so Baby Edwin's outfit, stars and crown are done in DI Markers. The rest is re-inkers.
Outfit: Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans
Crown and Stars: Wild Honey

This is one of two cards for my next class that I teach over at The Scrapbook Store for April. I hope markers arrive before class. I definatley want to show them off! If you are around please come join me. I bet you can guess which is the second card for class? LOL!! Answer will come tommorrow!

Like I said, I truly missed chatting, blogging...whatever you want to call it. I'm excited to get moving again!
