Out with the Old, In with the New!

Just in case you were wondering where I've been, I was lost in Blog Land!! Last Friday I was the sponsor for Friday Sketchers (link down below in my sidebar) and I made it my goal to comment on every participent's entry. There were 200 blogs that I visited since Monday and boy did I have a treat looking at all of those wonderful creations...

Today I needed to rush and get a birthday card in the mail for my Brother In Law so I found the CPS sketch to be very inspiring. This was such a quick card to make...but I have a very funny confession to make. See that star? This set retires today and I never cut it out until TODAY because it just didn't really "grab" me. In the last month or so though I have seen some wonderful cards featuring star stamps and I found that this was perfect after all. So, today is the last day to grab this great set, Trendy Holiday Tags. In fact today at 5 pm is the last chance you have to buy any of the stamps featured right HERE!

I just want to highlight two things here. Transcendence powder allows you to emboss with Palette (ie. dye) inks and so the stars really shines. And, what I love about the Die Cuts With a View paper that The Angel Company carries is that is has a white core so when you lightly sand it - voila, it really pops!

Last sneak peak from me - I am crossing my fingers that I'll get my demo copy this weekend and I should have all my catalogs early next week so it's not too late to still pre order your copy!

Sneak Peak #6

PLEASE NOTE: The online catalog will be down starting tonight at 5 pm until Tuesday at 5 pm.
