Here is a card using Flourishes newly released set “Mixed Greetings”.  Huge congratulations to Leslie Miller for coming up with the wonderful concept for this set!  It’s SO versatile!!


To get my huge pile of envelopes I stamped the envelopes image several times at slightly different angles and used some Eclipse masking tape here and there.  It was then cut out.  I stamped the basket image three times, cut them out and then applied the ric-rac, a prima and a tiny dot of Summer Sun card stock to each of them.  The baskets were popped up on dimensionals.  The pile of envelopes and the greetings sentiment were then tucked inside and also popped up with dimensionals.


The main sentiment is from Flourishes “Many Sentiments”.  What fun this was and so quick and easy.

Here are the three sets released this week at Flourishes.

In yesterday’s post I talked about the Vellum Glue Dots that weren’t really “dots” at all but rather sheets of adhesive that you transfer to an object that you want to adhere.  Well I had a few questions about it.  So rather than try to explain it further, I decided that a picture was worth a thousand words.  So here is a picture of a sheet.  You can see the area of “sticky”.  You just place the sheet on an object (like acetate) and rub the back of it, and the sticky transfers over to that object.


Now on yesterday’s card you really could not see the adhesive at all.  However I did another card using the clear card stock that had a plain Very Vanilla background.  The adhesive is slightly visible, but still does not look too bad.  Here is the card I made.  I used an orchid that my son’s girlfriend grew and dried and then gave to me.  This past week I learned that a very dear friend just lost her mother to Alzheimer’s.  This card is for her as I truly have been thinking of her, her dad and her whole family so much this week.


I know I’ve mentioned this a lot before, but I love Fridays!  My youngest son’s 17th birthday is tomorrow.  We may have something a little rowdy planned!  lol  The ONLY thing he wanted for his birthday was tickets to the “Gymnastics Superstars” at the Tacoma Dome later this month.  He has a total crush on that little darling Shawn Johnson and isn’t afraid to admit it!  *chuckle*  Well together we searched Ticketmaster and Ebay and couldn’t find any good seats.  And then a few days ago, on a whim, I checked Ticketmaster again totally not expecting to find anything.  BUT… woohoo… I got him two tickets… 5th row… smack dab in the middle of the center section!!  It may be the 5th row but he is going to be in 7th heaven!!  Don’t you just love it when things like that happen!

Hope everyone has a happy and fun weekend.
