Hi, Gals!  Another FABULOUS Monday!  Those Art Gallery Stampin' Gals are just the most fun.  We talk and laugh but we manage to get our projects completed in the allotted time!  I could not ask for a better time than spending it with other stampers!

This week we reprised our beautiful shoe card in the morning class.  Such fun to use these beautiful stamps and to make our polka dots with what else--pencil erasures.  We embossed using a combination of Melon Mambo embossing powder and a little Dazzling Diamonds thrown in.  Quick Tip***Rub a used dryer sheet over your cardstock before you apply your VersaMark.   By the way if you are first to follow me on my blog you get one of my new personalized bags.This will keep the static and random embossing powder down.**  Debby and Nancy made fabulous cards but I'm sad that I didn't get pictures of the morning class.
Purses, purses, purses!!
Lots of sponge-painting and distressing go on here!
The afternoon class revisited the petite purse project and along with the morning class made beautiful Open Seas cards with a brown color palette.  I found an ancient stamp from my collection that reads, "A light, a compass, a beacon true--My life is richly blessed by you."  So perfect!!

I was just thinking, as I noticed just a small part of the artwork in the education room at The Gallery, how fortunate we are to have a lovely, peaceful, art-filled atmosphere in which to work.  Thank you, Gallery!!

More beautiful greeting cards are coming up for next week!!
Happy Stamping!!
