First of all, I just want to thank every one of you who has emailed me or left me a comment lately. Today, I cleaned out my inbox (hadn't done it for about six weeks) and deleted over 2,000 emails, most of which pertained to Simplicity. I'm feeling the love. If, perchance, you sent an email with a question that I haven't answered, please ask again. I'm really trying to stay on top of things, but stuff MUST be slipping through.
Second, someone (Susan?) asked about a source for small envelopes (that hold 4 7/8" x 3 1/2" cards). I buy mine at Marco's Paper. I've never had luck navigating their website, but look for a #4 envelope, which is standard and can be ordered, I imagine, from lots of different places.
Third, edie3 asked (months ago) how I decide color choices. Wouldn't it be super cool if I had a fool-proof system for color combining? Well, I don't, other than to keep combinations simple simple simple because then I'm less likely to screw them up. But I do keep my eyes peeled for cool color combos pretty much anywhere and everywhere, and I found this one in the latest issue of Better Homes and Gardens.
Love the soft tan and two shades of orange together, so I played with it using my brand new Papertrey set, Way to Go, Kiddo!
Not sure if you can see the Stickles on the orange 'shroom, but it's pretty sparkly in real life. And as part of my resolution to use older, neglected supplies, I pulled out my grosgrain ribbon for this one. I found a color of ribbon that would work here, but since I made this card, I have FAILED to find matching ribbon for three other cards. Please tell me how one woman can have SO MUCH RIBBON and still not have what she needs? Seriously. And I'm not buying any more until I've used up most of what I have, which will take years.
Fourth, I'm giving this away to anyone living in the United States who wants it. The first person to leave a comment saying they want it will get it.
I'm not going to tell you why I have two of these because that would be embarassing. I mean, no way would I forget I bought a magazine and actually buy a second copy. That would be monumentally silly, wouldn't it?
Of course it would be.
