I Met a Famous Stamper!!

Pin It

OhMyGosh ~ I met a famous stamper Saturday!!

Ok, let me start at the beginning... A few weeks ago I won some amazing blog candy from Michelle Clark's Sparkle Designs. Between our emailing of getting my address to her and all I found out she lives not too far from me and will be teaching an AMuse class at Rubber Stamp Fantasy which is right here in Marietta on Jan 26th!

On Saturday, DH and I decided to go check out the store....it is AMAZING!!! If you are within a few hours, it is SO worth the drive! It is a HUGE store. I saw so many stamps and supplies 'in person' that I had only seen on line before: AMuse, Elzybells, COPICs, etc. And the owners are Fabulous! They'll show you how to do anything!

Anyway ~ So we're standing in from of the AMuse stamps and there are some COPICs there and I tell DH, these are COPICs I've been wanting to try!!! This innocent bystander next to us says, oh, they're great....so I look over and ask her to tell me what she knows about them. Well, I notice she's holding a Starbucks cup with Michelle written on it....my brain starts putting two and two together... It's Michelle Clark! She is such a dear! She showed me the AMuse stuff, COPICs...etc. It was so much fun!

So, this card is going to Michelle in today's mail! These are my first AMuse stamps. I also got the oval that AmyR uses so fabulously all the time.
Ok...I think I'll become addicted to AMuse and COPICs....

Recipe:
Stamps ~ AMuse
Paper ~ AMuse notecard, Very Vanilla, Basic Black
Ink ~ Versamark, Basic Black, COPIC ciao BG10 Cool Shadow
