an INK-credible day...

Hey...
here's a very quick update...

DRUMROLL...we got to play with tim's 12 new distress ink colors...

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Better than you could ever hope for..
colors we have REALLY NEEDED!!!!!!!!!!

How many will you want?
Believe me...all 12!
WOW!!! We'll have a whole new color palette...to make art!

A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALAIN Avrillion (co-owner of Ranger) for PERSONALLY making the new pads...
and overnighting them to tim for us to play.

ALAIN...you are THE BEST...I wish you could have heard the cheers & excitement in the room...
you would have been very pleased.

And...
we got to use tim's brand new dies for cutting grunge...paper...whatever...

OMG...I had to get a kleenex to mop up the drool...
SERIOUSLY!

Again...BEYOND COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I could barely sleep...
I was dreaming of all the possibilities...

We made 5 projects yesterday...and had a total blast...
We had awesome food again provided by Mario & Michele...
THANK YOU GUYS so much...
I hope my jeans fit when I leave...

It's getting busy & I'm still in my nightie...so that's it for now.

The moral of today's story?
Save your Christmas cash/gift certificates for these new inks & die's...
I'm just saying...you WILL want these REALLY bad!

OK...let today's fun begin!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND...

I AM...
mak(ing) art!
