I hope all the moms out there had a lovely Mother's Day! Looks like I'm getting a new water heater for my gift. Ours died on Saturday (moment of silence, please).
Thank goodness we're members of the YMCA so I can have hot showers until it can be replaced.
Fortunately, I don't need hot water to stamp. Today's card is the last of my Variations on the Hero Arts set Just a Note. I went for a totally different look, with a chocolate chip card base...LOVE IT!!!!
How-To Tips: There are tiny brown pearls on the envelope fastener, and the envelope is popped on dimensionals over the rulers, which are there to anchor the envelope visually. I masked the just out of the sentiment so it would fit on the lower envelope flap. Inside, I lined the card with cream cardstock so I wouldn't have to use a white pen to write in it.
Why is it that white pens ALWAYS dry up in the middle of writing on a dark card base? This will be one of my questions for St Peter. I'm not going through the pearly gates until I get an answer!
Coming Up This Week: Oh how I'm in love with Card Creations Volume 9 from Papercrafts Magazine. In. Love. People. We simply must discuss it. Also, I have a new Variations set that is oh so cool, to be released on Tuesday at Mark's Finest, with a patriotic theme. I'm feeling very patriotic these days, and have four cards to share!
That's not all!
At no extra cost, I'm adding some tabbed pages to the blog and will happily take suggestions for what you'd like to see on them. I'm going to do a Favorite Supplies page to help newbies, and an FAQ page. Other suggestions? Also, does anyone care about the Labels on posts, or do you all use the Search box when you want something? I'm hating the labels lately and wanting to ditch them from the sidebar, but if you like them, I'll leave them.
Are you thinking, "Gee, is she ever going to shut up?"
Yes. Yes, I am.
