A good day at the beach...

but it is so cool and rainy. The merchants here in town must really be hurting as the weather sure isn't cooperating so far this summer.

A good book (that would be the new catalog) some paper and stamps and I am having a perfect vacation! Here are a couple of cards I made for the open house...totally inspired by Julie. These use the new textured 8.5 x 11 in colours, along with white embossing powder. The stampset is "Upsy Daisy"....such a versatile set.

PAPER SHARE: The new designer papers are so yummy! How would you like some of all of them? Here are the details. You will receive a 6x6 piece of EVERY designer paper. There will be dividers outlining the name, and the solid colours that coordinate with that dsp.

The price...$30.00. I need at least 7 people sign up for this share...otherwise I won't be able to do it...so round up your friends, and sign up now.

Remember I am also offering a ribbon share, 3 yards each of the new polka dot ribbon, for $18.00...this is terrific value...so let me know...

Rainbow at sunset

What a perfect ending to a day spent crafting, reading and generally doing nothing...vacation is wonderful! The weather has not been great...but it really doesn't matter as I have plenty of reading material, my craft kit and who can complain when the day ends with a lovely rainbow.

"Enjoy"ing Life

As I write this note, I am watching the sun set over the lake at Sauble Beach. After a wild thunder boomer, and lots of rain..as always, the sun shines! It is lovely.

This card uses the Enjoy Life stampset...one I hardly ever use...mmmm...I do seem to have alot of sets in that condition! Making "manly" cards are not easy...but I think this one fits the bill.

Hope you can enjoy the lovely sunset tonight...check back tomorrow with details on my "In Colour" share.

Ribbon Share

Here is it Ladies, my first "Share" of the new catty. This little package contains 3 yards each of the new polka dot in colour ribbons. They are so yummy, lovely to work with and are actually reversible.

I am offering these packages for $18.00...that is just $1.00 per yard of this gorgeous ribbon. If you want more yardage...I can do that as well...same deal...$1.00 per yard. I can also do 1 yard of each colour...and you guessed it...$1.00 per yard. Whatever you order it has to be the same yardage for all the colours...

These can be mailed anywhere in Canada...for an extra $2.00 per package...I accept email money transfers, or cheques...but I would need the cheque first! Local ladies, we can meet or you can pick up...after July 1.

I will have these yummy ribbons, and paper and sneak peaks available Friday night at the open house. Hope to see you.

Keep checking back as I am offering more shares...and a unique idea for a club.

It's all new....and I love it!

Good Foggy Morning...here we are at the start of another weekend...and it is going to rain. Oh, well...this will be a great time to play with my new stuff. I opened up the new 8.5 x 11 TEXTURED cardstock..that's right, the new in colours come in textured. This makes such a lovely card. For this card I used the new rich razzleberry and Melon Mambe colours..along with the yummy razzleberry paper and the fun polka dot ribbon. The stampset is the new Animal Stories...so cute and versatile!

Next Friday I am hosting my big Open House/catty preview/get rid of my old stuff event! It will run from 5-9, and I will have 3 projects for you to try, new product to use, and prizes and treats. Please let me know if you are coming so I know how much to prepare.

Last chance order will be going in next Friday at 9pm...so if there is anything from the current catty you want (remember prices are going up) please let me know...I will save all the orders, and if we get to the hostess level, everyone will be entered in a draw for the hostess benefits.

Enjoying the sunshine....

The sun is shining here and the weather is just lovely. A nice breeze is blowing and my sheets are drying on the line. Here is a pic of a card made using vellum and the Fifth avenue floral stampset. This will be an all time favourite set...and will still be available in the new catty...The vellum overlay was run through the big shot using the Manhatten embossing folder.
