Jacksonbelle Tuesday

First, a heartfelt Thank-You to all the great men and women of this countries military, both present and past, who have stood up for the freedom that we are so very fortunate to have! A Happy Veteran's Day to you!

I'm very squeaking in this Tuesday's card for the Jacksonbelle Embellishment challenge. After my weekend away in Seattle, I have needed to spend some time with the family I love! We have all missed each other and I truly felt the need to slow down the pace of things for a couple of days and enjoy my wonderful husband and sweet daughters!

This is NOT to say that the trip to Seattle was not totally incredible. Truly an experience that I will remember for a lifetime. My trip did end up having a rocky beginning. My fellow travelers and I were all buckled in ready for take off of the flight out of Huntsville headed to Dallas/Ft Worth when the starter on the plane would not work. So... I ended up leaving on Friday morning (after an extra night in my own comfy bed) and thus did not arrive in Seattle in time for the Copic Certification class. The gals that attended the class said it was great BUT that they felt a lot of it did not pertain to coloring the stamped images that we use. Luckily, Marianne from Copic did a mini inservice as part of our Saturday itinerary, and I at least learned that my technique was correct- of course, I still think I need to continue practicing because I see myself feeling more and more confident at time goes by. Tomorrow I plan on sharing more details about my incredible trip and the AWESOME company A Muse!

Hi Beth!

I can't wait to hear all about your trip to Seattle. I love your new blog banner. Did you do that yourself? If you did you need to tell me how. I'm thinking about changing mine.

This card is simply stunning. I love it.

I have a little something for you over on my blog.

Have a wonderful weekend Beth!
