There will always be more pretty papers & supplies to replace anything I use up. My 'little thing' today is my favorite perfume. A little spritz gives me a lift every morning! That and a great cup of coffee! ;-)"

swanlady21 asked if Smooch is like Liquid Pearls. Not really. It dries flat...not as thick as Liquid Pearls. Smooch is mainly an opaque ink with lots and lots of shimmer in it.

Sue asked about Smooch Spritz. I've not used it but I have used Tattered Angels spritzy stuff and got very frustrated with it. Other people seem to have great success with it, but I am not one of them. The plain Smooch, however, is very easy to use.

I'm loving reading all your responses to the questions! Some of them have been really touching and sweet, some hysterically funny. I realized I forgot to answer the questions about beauty products (Covergirl Outlast lipcolor) and cleaning (rubber gloves...although I think I seriously must get a microfiber cloth!). 


  1. Who woulda thunk I'd learn cleaning tips from a card blog, but that's what happened; I'm on the hunt for microfiber cloths too!

  2. I wasn't wild about the Smooch spritzes. They misted in a really uneven pattern and there isn't much in the bottle. Plus, those glass tubes are fragile. I had one break before I even got it home! If you just want to add some shine, I highly recommend Rangers Perfect Pearls Mists. Perfect Pearl is my favorite - so subtle and sheet. It just makes everything look like shimmer paper.

  3. Thanks for the chance to be a winner on Day 3! I follow your blog using Google Reader. I enjoy your card creations and love your 'op ed' posts. (snail mail address sent by email) ;-)

  4. I just LOVE you cards, so pure, so perfect ;-)
