I went to a TAC gathering last night at my friend Paula's house. Awna (the TAC demo and another friend of mine) designed a couple cute cards for us to make. I am in awe of anyone that can color. I don't know what it is but when it comes to coloring stamped images, I just am not that good at it. As a kid, I loved to color in coloring books but as an adult, I just am not impressed with my coloring skills. Also it didn't help that last night I was feeling a bit shaky for some reason--not a good thing when trying to color detailed images!
I was so proud of myself that I did not buy anything at the gathering. It isn't that I didn't want to but financially, I really shouldn't be spending money plus I made myself a promise not to buy new stuff until I use some things that I bought a long time ago and never used.
Let me tell you, it wasn't easy not buying the Haute Couture stamp set that we used for the second card. This set is retiring plus since it is retiring, the price was discounted. When TAC first came out with this stamp set, I just thought it was OK, not really my style, but the more of Awna's artwork that I see with this set, I really, really like it. It was so hard not to buy the set last night but I'm sure if I really want to make some cards with it, I can sweet talk Paula (she is buying this set) or Awna into letting me use their sets.;)
