Post Thanksgiving

Did you think I fell down a hole never to return?  Not Alice in Wonderland, just me.  Husband had surgery on his knee and have been so busy with that I am exhausted.  However, today I did have time to use one of the Sweet Innocence stamps to make a quick card.  She is colored with Copics and the snow is tiny dots of Liquid Pearls.  Getting in the Christmas spirit?  I'm not quite there yet but it will hit me any day!  Enjoy  your weekend and stay warm!

Hi everyone!  I imagine just about everyone in the country is colder today than a week ago.  Brrrr!  I have a few items for sale.  I have five Copic markers, brand new, that I already had (dummy!).  They are E97, E80, E37, YG00, and E0000.  They are $20 which is half of retail.  I also have a Pumpkin Stazon Pad for $4 and a Spellbinders border die from the Gilded Life series called the Long Die.  I used one just like it in the crown posted below.   It's $9.  If anyone is interested send me an email at  If you take it all I'll do a little better on the total price for you. Shipping is the buyers responsibility but it all fits in a small padded mailing envelops so it shouldn't be much.

Have a project and a new product to share with you today.  I had been wanting to try one of the card-in-a-box cards for some time.  This CHRISTmas one is a tiny one.  Each side only measures 1 and 3/8 by 2" approximately.   The whole thing is triple matted which makes it very sturdy.  There's another one of these in my future as they were a lot of fun.  Be sure to click on the image to see it larger.

The second thing I wanted to show  you is a new Sizzix die called The French Bow.  This goes together very quickly and is very classy looking.  I used black and a black and white toile paper.  And it's BIG.  About 6" long and 2 wide..  Great for  packages too.
Hope you get out to vote today.  It's your right and priviledge.  Let's put an end to the apathy which has taken hold in our country.

Daylight Savings

Well how was your Halloween?  It was so cold here and threatening rain that there weren't so many trick or treaters as other years.  And, of course, tonight is that night we have to fool with the clocks.  Fall back, remember?  We gain a whole hour of sleep.....good as gold if you ask me.  With time on my mind, I  made this tag with mostly Tim Holtz design elements.  I edged everything with Frayed Burlap.  I used Wendy Vecchi's embossing paste and a combination of Dylusions and Adirondack color washes to color the tag.  I love spraying that seam such a nice vintage-y look.  Bundle up and don't forget the tick tock!
