The AMAZING Tami Wood!!!

A couple of weeks ago, while we were in Minneapolis for Monster Jam, I had the opportunity to stop by Artsy Tartsy, a really neat stamp store! They had some awesome activities for A*Muse*A*Palooza last summer, and it is Tami Wood's home base for her classes! I was lucky enough to be there on a day that she was teaching - so I just barged right in and interrupted her class!! It was so much fun!! I got to meet 3 great gals - Tamara, Kristina & Erin - who were taking the class! I so rarely get to stamp with other people - this was such a fun treat!! We laughed, we cried - it was better than Cats (I can't for the life of me remember what movie this line is from - anyone??, anyone???!)!! Artsy Tartsy was a beautiful shop - lots of neat stuff that I didn't have nearly enough time to look at!! Thank you so much, Tami, for letting me barge into your class!! I was so happy to get to meet you in person and see some of your amazing cards!! Tami can do things with A Muse that I have never seen anyone else do!! She had cards from her last class where she had made the A Muse stamps look positively vintage!! Looove it!! Here's the card Tami was kind enough to let me make and some pictures of the gang!!

I just love this card - Tami has such an eye for detail ... The snowflake brad has a beautiful crystal in the middle, the sentiment is stamped on this awesome paper (Cosmo Cricket, maybe??), then she mounted it on a piece of cardstock the same size and inked the edges so it all matches! Tami is also the QUEEN on decorating the envelopes and the insides of the cards - I didn't take a pic, but the inside has a two color sentiment and more snowflakes!!!

Kristina & Erin hard at work on the cards!
Kristina, Tami & I !! It was so great to actually get to meet some of my "online" friends!!
Love ya, girls and I'll be back soon!!
