Once again I had the honor of having a card published in Stampers' Sampler Catch Up Issue, 2009
Recently I sat in on a lecture/class by Terry Medaris in Mesa, Arizona were he demonstrated working with color pencils. So I got out my limited supply of prismacolor pencils and started practicing this week using his technique on color blending. The results are above using prismacolor pencils and stamps by Terry Medaris. Its a far cry from his work but I believe a step in the right direction on working with pencils.

As snow birds we really enjoyed our stay in Mesa, Arizona. The grounds were beautiful and each campsite had their own fruit tree. The amenities and activities are too numerous to mention, that if one said they were bored it was their own fault. We had so much fun we already put a deposit down for next year for a 3 month stay. Is it January already????? Can't wait to return!
