Tuesday Post


I couldn't come up with another title! :) Tuesday Post works!

I bought some letterpress type (I think that is what it is called) a while ago. I look at them everyday! They just look cool!

I wanted to finally ink them up and make some cards.

I only bought letters because 1. they were cheaper and 2. the smaller letterpress blocks/whatever can be used with stamp pads. I love the letterpress look! Maybe one day when I win the lottery, I can buy my own letterpress! Oh wait... I guess you have to play the lottery to win. Oh well!

I used the new SU In Colors on all 4 of my cards and a little epoxy heart sticker... love these little hearts! I still have to take a picture of one of the 4 I made so I will post the other two in a couple of days!

On another, more exciting, note... I made the spotlight on Dawn's latest color challenge! Woo Hoo! I have to blog about it on this post since this is my journal of this kind of stuff (promise I am not the 'look at me' type). I am very honored, as I love all of Dawn's creations! I almost didn't look at Dawn's post about her selections. I just figured as always... I wouldn't make it! So glad I looked! I ran in the living room doing a happy dance and I think it scared my husband! :)

Carver starts school today so... back to my regularly cleaning program! Fun fun! :)

Happy Tuesday!

these are super adorable!!! i did alot of research and found that clearbags.com is the cheapest and has a ton of variety of sizes..... For now i am doing like a 3x3 for embellishments 4 1/2x 6 or something to where a card would not be super tight in there and a 8 1/2x8 1/2 for paper im going to be selling...... and then im gonig to get the a small size of the ziploc bags they sell too.... they come in 100 per pack so they will last me a while!! loL!! My boyfriend has a label maker where i will print out the labels and the $ store has packs of those manilla bubble wrap envelopes i think 3 in a pack for $ good deal.... anyways i hope that helps and I hope you set up your store!!
