Follow Your Art.....FMS384





I joined Stampin' Up! after I retired from teaching over ten years ago.  And in those ten years I have followed my art all over this country going to some amazing stamping events.  It has been great fun!  Last weekend I went to Quebec for a Stampin' Up! OnStage gathering. Erin, Emma and I drove north across the border for a three day adventure in Quebec. 

On Saturday Erin and Emma set off to the aquarium while I headed to OnStage with a delightful demo from Ottawa that I met at breakfast.  Always fun to connect with other demos!  We got a sneak peek at the new catalog and a chance to play with some new sets.  My card today uses an image from an upcoming set called It Starts With Art that we played with during a Make 'n Take session.  However I am more of a Talk 'n Taker than a Make 'n Taker so I always have to bring projects home to finish!  




We took a wonderful carriage tour of the walled city in Quebec.






It is my turn to host this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Follow your art and have fun with the sketch! Can't wait to see what you create!

It's wonderful that your daughter, and Emma could travel with you, Linda! Congratulations on your 10th year with SU... hope they honored you in some way.
Your card is darling! These spools of ribbon are wonderful - as is the coordinating paper I see peeking there!

Love the sketch layout and your card is a wonderful interpretation. Your photos of Quebec reminded me of my trip there a few years ago. Thank-you for refreshing my memory! Congrats on your 10 years with SU!

So glad you were able to spend time in Quebec. Love the photos! This is a great card - that textured background is EVERYTHING here. Love these spools of ribbon in this set. ♥

Wow Linda, you went to Quebec for Onstage. How cool. Love your card too. I'll see if I can get one done this week especially since it's your week.

Sounds like a great time! I always love stamping with friends! I love the colors of your card and this looks like a fun set!

Such a great card Linda! I just love those ribbon spools and the textured background! Great sentiment too! Glad you liked Quebec City. We lived just outside Montreal many moons ago. Beautiful area!

Such a great card for a creative friend! Love the blue skies, but it is looking a little cold in Quebec!

Love seeing this new set and such fun coloring! Yeah, I never finish things at an event. I'm apparently the slowest stamper ever. Thanks for such a great sketch this week!
