Did you notice the pretty pink banner at the top of my blog? My new stamping blogging friend, Kristi Ferro, has a wonderful fully stocked online store so I thought I'd pass her link along to my blog readers! She was generous enough to offer you all 15% off if you spend $15 and as a bonus I will be able to earn free products from her store! How nice is that?! :-) So, if you're in the mood for shopping be sure to click her link and don't forget to use the coupon code: SPRING07 to get the discount! I can't wait to get some of her charms - they would be SO cute on Bella cards!
Have a great week! I hope to have some new cards and a couple of finished quilts to show you very soon.

Well I must say... last night's stamping session was a success! We partly finished 160 cards - 4 different designs. Each design has multiple layers, stamping, embellishments, punching, a little coloring. One design has a fancy fold... lots of work, but lots of fun, too!
Can anyone guess what these cards are for?
ETA: The cards are all cupcake, coffee, tea themed, they are not for a wedding and they are not for sale and they are not end of the year teacher gifts. Any more guesses?

Have you missed me? I haven't gone anywhere, I just haven't made the time to post anything on my blog. I'll be stamping tonight so hopefully I'll have something fun to share with you tomorrow!
I was just wondering if anyone would like to share their experiences (good or bad) with selling hand made items online. Has anyone tried Etsy? Is it a good place to sell craft items like quilts or cards, etc? Can anyone recommend a good place to sell these types of things online?
Thanks for any suggestions or ideas you may have!

I don't know about you, but we are "enjoying" a very rainy long weekend. At least it makes it easier to get work done inside if it's not nice outside. I just hope it clears up in time for our picnic with Andrea & fam this evening!
Speaking of Andrea, here is a card I made for her to thank her for taking me shopping & out for lunch on my birhtday.
I'm loving my new clear stamps from My Favorite Things and also Paper Trey.
See the scallops on the card? My awesome SU Demo, Sarah, showed this on her blog and I'd never seen it before. You just punch out a bunch of circles using a circle punch and adhere them to the back of your layer. I used a ruler to make a line and then put a strip of tape along the edge and stuck the circles on. It's a pretty easy way to make scallops!
Stamps: My Favorite Things, Paper Trey
Colouring: SU Markers

Have you ever seen a catalog from "the angel company"? I hadn't until yesterday... I'd been purely an SU user until the last few months and it's been lots of fun branching out and trying stamps & accessories from other companies.
One of my watermark customers, Melanie Robson, was kind enough to send me a catalog from the angel company and I received it yesterday. WOW - I am very impressed! It's a large full color, glossy catalog jam packed full of awesome stamp sets, gorgeous designer papers and more! I can't wait to really spend some time going through it.
You can see Melanie's TAC site here:
Have a good day! It looks like it's going to be a beautiful sunny day here.

Yesterday the girls were both home sick so I decided to start on a quilt using the fabric I got on my birthday shopping trip with Andrea.
I decided to go with a red & white theme using all cotton fabrics cut to 3"x3". One some of the white squares I will embroider a little picture using red embroidery floss. Then I plan to tie this quilt rather than quilt it and may add a few buttons here & there. Although it is a baby quilt, so I'm not sure about the safety of the buttons.
I plan to add borders to the quilt to make it a little bigger. I actually have many many squares left over so I'll be able to make another couple of these quilts. Next time I will know to use more squares and then I can have a nice narrow border.
