A Short Post

I want to let my local scrapping and stamping friends that I will be scrapping/stamping with friends from 5:30 pm tonight, until @ 4:00 Saturday afternoon in the basement of Immanuel United Methodist Church in Ripon, right on Hwy 23/W Fond du Lac St. But here is the great news: I am having a sale. I will be having my annual sale, selling The Angel Company products for 20% off and only 10% of your order for shipping costs! I will be closing the sale next week Friday, because next month, Fond du Lac County goes to 5 1/2% sales tax . Hey, I try and save you every penny. One little hitch though, you must pick up your order from my house here in Ripon, or have someone pick it up for you, whatever works, and one more plus...Bryan still goes to Princeton quite often, so if he could drop the items off at one house, all Princetonites can pick it up from there, but you will have to work that out :-)
Never heard of The Angel Company, we are a smaller company, and you can get cheaper prices!
If you can't make it to the church to see some of the products, check them out at my upline's website, but don't place the order there, or you'll be paying full cost! So go to Diana's site, and click on the Products tab. You'll be able to see even closeout products. If the page doesn't load correctly, go back to the home page, click on the "my story" tab, and then the "products" tab, and it should load correctly. The "Paper Collections" are fantastic! And I don't understand why, but there is cardstock that coordinates with the collections, but you will find the cardstock under "Accessories" and then click on "Cardstocks". At these prices, I hope you find something you like.
Hope to see you,

I'm back...

I have been having major computer problems for the past couple of weeks, so I am now looking through 528 emails, and also into buying a laptop computer, and that, my friends, is why I haven't been posting lately. I also got to see my grandson today, so I dropped everything, just to be with him for a couple of hours today. Just being with him, even for a short time, gives me a warm fuzzy :-)
So this card I made was super easy. I used a digital stamp freebie from HERE The card base is Kraft, followed by green glittery by DCWV, followed by white card stock, run through my printer to get the digi, and then run through the Big Shot with the Top Note Die. On the inside, it says "This Bud's for You". This card for an older 70ish man. I sponged the Top Note with Marigold, and orange inks. Added some Reece SWIC from TAC, and punched out the bottom with my scallop punch. That's it!

Time Goes By So Quickly

I've got cards done, but just haven't found the time to update my blog. My grandson's birthday party is this Saturday. He turns 2 on Sunday. The time sure does fly by,when you're the Grandma.
Remember when I said I had a bunch of Thank You cards to make? Well, a few people got one that looked like this. This is so easy to do. The craft paper in the back is just one piece, measuring 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I took a piece of ivory cardstock
and folded it in half, so that it was 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". I put my cardstock on the top note die, making sure that the top of the cardstock was about 1/4" down from the top of the die. That way, when you run it through the big shot, you come out with 2 top note dies that are hinged together. So actually, you flip the top note open to see the sentiment inside. The kraft cardstock is just for looks. I took my fancy scissors to the edge of the kraft paper, so it didn't look so blah. I then stamped versamark on the stamp, and then into the water based ink I wanted, and stamped the card. I then put embossing powder on top, gave it some heat, and did that for the rest of the stamps. Then when everything is embossed, I took some blue ink, and sponged it over the whole thing. And then I wiped the ink off of the embossed images. Easy Peasy.

Update on my Copics...I need to watch some more videos on you-tube! :-)
