I Wish it Would Snow!

And since that is probably not gonna happen. . . I'm settling for this beeeyootiful paper with some silver snowflakes! I got this stamp on clearance last year. . . not sure why. Didn't even really like it that much but I cannot, I repeat, cannot pass up a good sale! (My husband tells me that it really isn't a good deal if you didn't really need it in the first place! :-) I'm sure he's right, but it's this silly stamping addiction thing I have! :-) ) Anyway, I thought it would be perfect with this paper. And if the snowflake paper wasn't pretty enough, I caved and bought a piece of shimmer white cardstock. Oh my goodness! It is stunning! Can you see the pretty sparkles in it? Then I Cuttlebugged some snowflakes, embossed them with silver EP and voila! What a pretty snowflake card if I do say so myself! So, enjoy my pretty! I'm off to figure out the best way to photograph a card now that the sun is on the other side of the world! Blessings. . . .

The Tale of a Unique Boutique

Hi all, I just spent the day selling my creations at a fun little craft sale called "A Unique Boutique". Cute name, isn't it?!?!? And you know what I've learned? Craft sale patrons are an unpredictable lot!!! I've done several sales this year and it's fun to watch how one item just WILL NOT SELL at one sale and turns out to be the best seller at the next! Favored items at today's sale? These cute little tins! Each is covered with designer paper, fluffed with LOTS of ribbon and then features some little stamped item on it. The favorites today were covered with a paper that had chocolate chips all over it or sported a scrumptious mug of coffee (courtesy of Stampin Up's Like it a Latte set!) I'm sorry I didn't get a picture of them before they went to the sale. . . you'll have to just trust me that they were way cute! Anyway, they are just the best for giving chocolates or gift cards! Here's a picture of some of the other fun stuff that went to the sale with me today. . . hope you enjoy!
