HAPPY MAIL!!

Last Thursday I received a WONDERFUL  package from Australia!  Danie (D-Dazzled Designs), a member of the blog group -Tangled Up in Creativity sent me some delightful goodies.  She had recently revamped her blog and offered a chance for some candy if you left a comment.  Well, her blog is FABULOUS, check it out when you have a moment.  This is a picture of the card and sticky note holder she sent, beautiful.  She won't take credit for the card, she said another SU demo made the design.  Danie you did a lovely job putting it together.
These are handmade embellishments her friend makes.
The card set on the right was actually a set of 6, very elegant.
Look at this AWESOME BLING!!  On the card envelope she wrote "You can never have too much 'bling!"
I couldn't agree more!  Thank you so much Danie, you don't know how happy  (and lucky) I was to receive this.

So, what took you so long to post this, Monica?  When I got this package I was in the middle of a project.  I was at the point where I knew I had bitten off more than I could chew, and I couldn't turn back and give up.  Don't you hate it when that happens (really, it happens quite frequently to me).

I saw this cool posting on the blog Triple the Scraps, she made a catalog of her stamp images and sentiments using a Rolodex.  You can find it here.  When I read it I thought, "what a great idea."  So a few days later on Freecycle someone offered a Rolodex and I got it.  It took a week and I'm finally finished.
Thanks for looking!

  9. Hi Monica so pleased you love all the goodies. The rolodex is a fabulous idea. Every stamper probably should have one, cos if they are anything like me you have so many stamps you forget what you have.

  14. Dear Monica~

    That card from Danie is just gorgeous! How fortunate are you to receive such goodies! Love them all!

    And, your garage sale image coloring was a great idea! I have this little plastic case that I keep about 1,000 stamped images and my watercolor pencils in. I pull it out at the doctor's office when I need to wait, or whenever I am the passenger and my hubby is driving, or while watching a movie with him, here at home. I now have enough for about 300 cards to be put together! How fun!

    Great idea! Oh, and thanks for stopping by the He IS Able blog this week. Spectacular, hmmm?

  15. So sorry...I forgot to mention 2 things!

    I LOVE how you colored that adorable turtle!

    And, 2, isn't that rol-a-dex idea the best. I go a step further, I think. On the back of the card, I write down the name of the person that received the card with the stamp I used. No repeats that way! Especially when everyone will save your cards! They are the awesomest!
