Happy Hump Day!!

Happy 4th of July as well.  It always seems to me that the 4th marks the beginning of the last half of summer and boy is that depressing.  I have been so crazy busy that I'm not sure where the first half went.  Tomorrow will be spent with my kids at the pool and I will hopefully get some coloring in tomorrow night.  I thought I would share with you a couple of cards I made for my last copic card class.

The stamp is from Stampendous, the paper is Bazzill and the ribbon is of course, white and I colored it to match exactly!  Love that about Copics!! Of course I have a HUGE stockpile of white ribbon in my craft room.

Uncle Sam is also a Stampendous Stamp, cardstock is Bazzill and the printed is We-R-Memory Keepers.  Both cards are from my June Copic Card class that I had at Cord.  As always I try to keep these cards very simple as the class is only an hour and a half long and believe me it takes that long to color 3 images.  Look at my previous post for the balloon card that we also did during that class.  My July class features two adorable birthday stamps and a monkey ready for some pool fun.  I hope to get those posted really soon.  It seems that my students really like to color people stamps, I do too!!

I got an idea earlier today that I am excited about!! You know how art journals are all the rage now. (I even have one and am slowly filling it) I am excited to start a coloring journal!  Not sure how I am going to make it happen yet. I do already have a card portfolio and a coloring portfolio (I use these when I teach).  If you have any great ideas please let me know!!  I will also post when I have it all figured out (oh that could take awhile KWIM!!)

I feel as though I am rambling, could be cause I'm exhausted.  That being said I will leave you for now.  Keep it colorful!!!
