Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to all of my blog followers!
I hope that the whole Easter season (Easter to Pentecost) is filled with blessings for you!

I used the filter paper to make the "wool" for the little lamb. 
Do you remember, in grade school, taking tissue paper and ripping it in small pieces, putting it over the eraser on a pencil, dipping it in paste, and putting it on a sheet of paper to make a picture? 
That is basically how this is done but with a little more precision than we used in grade school! 
I sponged the embossed part of the folder for the front. 
I used the baby wipe technique for the cross on the inside. I took four of the subtle color refills and dropped some on a baby wipe to make a multicolored ink pad. 
The saying on the inside comes with the lamb but I cut it and mounted it separately so it is more versatile. 

Here is another Easter card. 
This one was made using the Work of Art set. 

I used the brayer, with a very light touch to color the embossed part of this folder. 
The color used gives the whole card a different "feel" to it. 
Which one do you like the best? 

SAB is almost over! 
This makes me happy and sad at the same time. 
What do you like about this sale that SU! has for us? 
This is the last week! Your last chance to get the free item of your choice from the SAB book with a $50 order. 
I will be putting in one last order during SAB. If you NEED anything right now.....
I am close to a goal and a few more sales might get me there. 
You can email an order to me before 6:00PM on Wednesday, March 30th if there is something you would like me to order for you. 
If you would like to order on line, please use the hostess code
If you choose the "no contact" option there is no way that I will know that you are the one that placed the order and I won't be able to thank you for it. 
Thank you to the ones that have done that in the past. 
I appreciate each and every order placed on my site!

Layer or not?

Even though it looks like there is some layering on this card there isn't.
The trick is to draw the line behind the flower and words to make it look like they are sitting on the layered piece that isn't actually there.
Do you like the one on white or the one on yellow the best?
There will also be a vanilla choice.
You can choose to make this card at the Stamp Along on Monday the 14th at the Lester Library starting at 1:00.
Hope to see you there. 

The hostess code to use for on line orders is:
Thank you to all of you that place orders on line and use the code. 
I appreciate it so much!
This is the last month to get the SAB free items with a $50 order. 
The metallic tape is pretty nice! I will have some at the Stamp Along for you to check out. 
Don't forget to leave a comment. 
You can't win if your name isn't in there. 
Yes, I many times draw a name from those that have left a comment during the month and they get some little reward.

Card or envelope?

It does have the look of an envelope but it is a card.
The part that looks like the flap is a piece of the beautiful Shine On Speciality Designer paper on page 31 of the Occasions 2016 catalog. The flowers are so easy to make with the bundle on page 22. The background is done with the same stamp set as the flowers.
This card could be for almost any occasion, depending on the saying that you add to the inside. 

For which occasion would you use it?
Let me know and I can pack a greeting for that occasion for you to use.

Hostess code to use this month is
if you are placing an order on line.
Thank you!

I made some new friends last week

After being away all last week making new friends, I will be busy finishing up on the Stamp Along this week. Before I get back into "stamping mode" I thought you might like to see a few pictures of some of my new friends.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my new friends.
Tomorrow I will have some more of the cards that will be available next Monday.
Good night!

More birthdays

This could be one of those Male cards that are often difficult to make. 
It could also be for almost anyone since you will personalize the inside with the number. 

I have made this one for anyone over the age of 29 but I will have all the numbers there so you can use the ones you need to personalize yours. 
It is hard to tell on the photo but it has a pop out inside.

This one uses the Sunburst die. The same one as the You brighten my day from a few days ago.
Did you recognize it? 
It is turned the other direction on this one and uses some of the stamps from the set that it is bundled with for the 15% discount. 
The cord on it is another discontinued item but it went well so I thought I would let you help me use it up so it isn't just sitting here taking up space. 
Do you mind when I use discontinued items at the Stamp Along? 

Have you noticed that I have been asking a lot of ??? the last few posts? 
Have you left a comment to answer any of them? 
Comments are always fun to get. I don't answer them unless they require an answer but I do read them all and very much appreciate your taking the time to write them. 
Remember, please, to sign your name if you choose the anonymous choice for leaving a comment. 
Sometimes I give little tokens for leaving a comment when I see you at the Stamp Along. 
You never know when I will pick a name so be sure to comment often. Thanks!

Thank you! 
I appreciate your business very much!
