Elzybells - Closing Store Order

Hello everyone,

It has been quite some time since my last post. I managed to scratch my eye a week or so ago so I have been healing and putting antibiotic drops in my eyes so I haven't been doing much recreational computer work. Better now, and thought I would share a haul video.

The Elzybell shop is closing at the end of August, so act quickly! As I mention, I am sad that Elizabeth is closing her business but grateful that I had the chance to get these pieces of her art. The graphics are so cute and inspirational.

Here is a vido of my rather large order, and I still didn't get all the pup art ones I would have liked to. I am happy to have the stamps and look foward to using them and posting some work soon.

Best to all of you,

Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my birthday. It was a nice day at home. Oscar got me a lovely card and we had all three meals together. Birthday coconut cream pie! Yum! Thanks for the well wishes from Facebook friends.

Design by Mia - New Release

Hi everyone,

Well I have a few days off for my birthday, I look forward to doing a fair amount of crafting, and will be posting some cards from Design by Mia and the Cutting Cafe.

The first one features a Design by Mia digital stamp. You can pick them up at her store on Etsy.

Design By Mia Card
The image is a new release as of August 5, 2010. I printed it on white Neenah cardstock. I have been using my HP Photo Printer. I have had no issues with Copics and the inks. Yipee!
I used Copic markers and a fine sharpie to do the colouring. Gem blings from Michaels. The pattern paper is from Cosmo Cricket. The ribbon is a double faced satin.
Thrifty tip -- Check the internet or yellow pages and see if you have a floral supply store in your area, find out when they are open and then check it out. The rolls of ribbon are very reasonably priced if you are shopping per yard price, and there are lots of double faced ribbons so no fancy twists if new to tying bows. The ribbon generally comes in rolls of 20 to 50 yards. Enough to share...
Stop by Mia's site, she is branching out from the AiFactory site for a little while and would love some more visitors.
Have a great day!
