Hello everyone and Happy Weekend!! Sorry I didn't post yesterday but I needed the day off---lot's going on here in the Dean house, my family and stuff & I was spent physically & emotionally! I also spent like 7 hours yesterday wasting away the evening reading all about Pioneer Woman who I saw on Nichole Heady's Blog, lol! She's a pretty funny & cool lady I must say--she takes stunning photographs, makes yummo-licious food, and cracks me up. If you wander on over to her site HERE make sure & read her "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" story about how she married a cowboy & went from city livin' to country livin'--I started & finished it all in one night, hee hee! So now I'm making hubby take me to PA to her book signing on December 13th--right now he's resisting but I can usually make him see things my way, bwahahahhahaaaaaaaaaaaaa!! So go check her out & let me know what ya think??!
-Susana's Custom Art & Card Design has selected Spellbinders Nestabilities on SALE on her site now HERE!!
-My Blog Candy Winner will be announced on Monday morning!!
-Another two Etsy Spotlights for ya today and the first one is "Ruby Rose"--I bought some necklaces from her and they are just GORGEOUS lemee tell you! Vintage, dainty & beautiful and won't break your wallet either! And when I went back to link I bought myself another bracelet & necklace, LOL--I love that you won't see this jewelry on your neighbor or friend's neck because most of it is one of a kind--you will be unique! I got this bracelet & matching necklace in black/silver, ummm my favorite colors next to red, hee hee! :o)
Second Spotlight is on "XO Handworks" -- if you're a regular reader you know how much I adore my Cherry Coke--it's my favorite drink of choice and on any given day you will find a can or two littered on my craft table, LOL (and I drink regular Coke too, no diet for me, icky)! I have tried giving it up many times, but I cannot--I have failed miserably & have resigned myself to the fact that I can't! So when I found this cool Etsy site that uses recycled soda bottle tops to make cool & quirky jewelry, well I just had to buy myself some, hee hee! I love elegant pieces but I love fun jewelry as well--so I bought myself some Coke Bead earrings--they're awesome! They'll match my Cherry Coke jammies I got in Vegas really good, LMBO!! Have fun browsing!
So for this set I used the fabulous Lockhart Stamp Co. "Writing Letters" stamp--perfect for notecards. I kept the colors simple & elegant--taupe/kraft, cream and buttercream yellow. The patterned papers are from Stampin Up's "Bella Bleu" paper set--these papers are fabulously gorgeous, I just love them! So these are just basic 4.25x5.5 postcards with some dp and cs--the border was made with one of my favorite Fiskars border punches. The gift box is called "Desktop Organizer" and it's a Timeless Template from PTI--lots of good uses for this one and really easy to put together too!
