Nurse Tilda Sneak Peek, CHA photos & Blog Candy!!

Hello friends! I’m so excited to say that I’ve just returned from Chicago where I was honored to be demonstrating various Copic marker techniques while coloring for my favorite stamp company ~ Magnolia!! A dream come true, in my opinion!

I hope you have a few minutes — since I’ve got LOTS of photos to share!! And, some anniversary blog candy at the end.

I was also privileged to meet two of THE nicest people in the world ~ Barbro and John of Magnolia. It was such a wonderful time spent during CHA with them.

I also FINALLY met up with my dear friend, the amazingly talented, super nice and drop dead gorgeous, Suzanne Dean after many years of working on several DTs together. Adding to my excitement, I was also privileged to meet Angie Hunt, Ruby Montes and Patti Jo Skoguist, three of the sweetest, most talented ladies around – all working at the Magnolia-licious mini stamp booth! I felt so lucky to spend time with all of these wonderful people.

Angie, Suzanne, Ruby & Patti Jo

I’ll keep my chatter short today so I have room to share some of the photos I was able to take of the GORGEOUS Magnolia booth … truly my favorite at CHA.

But, I do want to share a quick sneak peek of an ADORABLE, soon to be released image from the newest Magnolia ~ Winner Takes It All collectionNurse Tilda!

I’ve made this card for another dear friend of mine and fellow crafter, who has been quite ill recently. So, Nurse Tilda will soon be on her way, wishing her a VERY speedy recovery!

And, finally some photos of the Magnolia booth at the summer, 2011 CHA show in Chicago, IL:
