Working with this Elvis is… Backgrounder is like having an entire hip sentiment collection on one backgrounder. I used the words ‘hunka burnin’ love’ and ‘dreamy’ and a marker to accent my shipping tag. Wouldn’t this be cute tied to a pair of flaming boxers for your man on Father’s Day!? Of course, I’m not going to post men’s flaming unders here on my blog, but you can imagine how fun that would be….right?
I started with a regular manilla shipping tag that I ‘rangerized’ using Distress Inks, cut and dry foam and a water mister. Then I overstamped with my new Vintage Ledger Scrapblock (TM) from CHF in Pitch Black Adirondack. These huge hunks (Scrapblocks (TM)) of rubbah (6×6) are being released next week. At 6×6, you are not confined to either portrait or landscape for your card design..either works! Added my Elvis, glitter with a Tsukineko Glue Pad (I use a stamp-a-ma-jig to over-stamp my glue), sentiment stamp and the backgrounder words ‘marked off’ with a black marker and a romantic swirly-do from the Rummage Bin Beautiful set, heart shaped brads and ribbons.
See you in the morning…
We’ve been travelling this last week, and we’re heading home from Disney World today. This is just a quick post to share another card from the Rummage Bin Shoe Boutique set that is being released today at CHF. OK – I’ve got to catch my shuttle. We’ve had a blast, but we’re ready to be home. Here’s a view of the whole set:
I’ll see you tomorrow. Have a wonderful day!

WINNER! I loved reading about all that you have to be thankful for, and for the most part, you were thankful for ‘relationships’. That is a wonderful, wonderful thing!

15! That would be Courtney, who said: “I need to thank all of the women who have been “Motherly” influences in my life. They have made a huge impact on me.”
Courtney, send me your address, and I’ll get these out today! Cards magazine recently sent me a goodie box with 2 issues of their beautiful March addition, so I’m throwing one f those in, too!
See you tomorrow with another card in the Divine Design project!
Last fall, my sweet, sweet neighbor (who loves my daughters very much and feeds them cookies at dinnertime) asked me if I would give a simple, little stamping demonstration to her professional teacher’s group the first Saturday in May. I love my neighbor, and I was so glad that she asked me to do it. She & her husband have treated my family like gold, and I wanted to make it special for her friends. I was playing around with new Rummage Bin stamps, used old reliable layout – probably all time favorite #1 and came up with the prototype.
Then I went to my stash of supplies and found something that would work for 20-25 cards. This is a slight variation to the make and take that I took for the ladies. Unbeknownst to me, the ladies of this group have been supportive of a local organization that collects and distributes new shoes for children who need them, so they seemed to be thrilled with this selection. It was a wonderful morning.
** Shoe Boutique from the Rummage Bin line will be available next Tuesday, and I’ve already got a few things stamped and set up to show you in the coming days. I hope you’ll like it.
See you Wednesday morning when I’ll draw a winner for those Shimmery Poison Ivory notecards.
