Zander's 3rd Birthday has been FOREVER since I posted.  Since last post I've been uber busy!  Taught two Copic classes at Stampadeedoda for a total of 26 students and another classes booked in August with 5 signed up already.

Then we went on a two week vacation.  THAT was soo much fun.  We visited my step-mom in Tahlequah, Oklahoma and did a little sight seeing while there.  Spent almost 2 extra days in Tulsa getting the rear end fixed on the Explorer..........the bearings were bad.........not good considering that we just had them replaced the end of March this year.  Grrr......   Cost us a brand new ring and pinion gear and labor for that.  Fortunately the bearings fell under part warranty.  Still it was $700 plus hotel, rental car and food.

Then on to Aspen for my 40th class reunion.  We had soooo much fun.  We stayed at the Flying Dog Ranch.  One of the most beautiful places to have a reunion.  The mountain view was spectacular.  Had a grand time reconnecting with some people that I hadn't seen in 40 years!

BUT tomorrow is Zander's birthday and he will be having a pirate card.  The stamps are from Sweet and Sassy stamps.  This happens to be a retired set but I just HAD to use it!  The pirate and accessories are colored with copic markers.  The 'sand' is a crushed looks really great.   I hope he likes it!
