Embossing with Judy

Judy Beetson is one of my fabulous downlines as well as being my friend & neighbour. Judy, Joan & myself were all scrapbookers until I discovered Stampin' Up! & started dragging them along to classes at my upline's place in 2007.

Judy & myself stared blogging together as well so it was with great delight when she decided this year that "stuff her health problems" she was going to do what she wanted to really do & become a demonstrator. As Judy is retired she holds classes at different times than myself, so it was lovely to chill out her place yesterday afternoon & be taught for a change - heaven! The saying she's chosen for our card is kinda appropriate "follow your heart - it knows the way".
Yesterdays class was embossing & I love both the projects we all created.

Stamp sets: Always, Whimsical Words (SAB 2010)
Ink: Versamark, Whisper White Craft
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Pretty in Pink
Other: White & black embossing powder, Top Note die, Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon, Perfect Polka dots embossing folder

Stamp set: Upsy Daisy
Ink: Versamark, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Soft Suede, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Other: Clear embossing powder mixed with Dazzling Diamonds glitter (see below for how sparkly it is), Soft Suede polka-dot grosgrain ribbon, large oval punch, flower brad, brown paper bag (non-SU).

Thanks Judy for a lovely afternoon - do check out her blog if you're a local (westie) as she maybe offering classes at a time that is just right for you - it certainly was for me yesterday. I'm off to one of my other downline's classes on this coming Friday night - I can tell already this is going to be a GREAT week for me :)
