On the seventh day of Christmas (12/18/12), my Art ‘n Soul gave to me, 50% OFF ANY ONE DIE WITH A MIN. $35.00 PURCHASE (purchase in addition to die).
And when you stop into the store next time, you'll be able to see the very nice gift basket that one lucky winner will take home at the end of our 12 Days of Christmas. Including today, there are only 6 more days of '12 Days of Christmas' shopping at Art 'n Soul remaining. Is your name in the bowl for the Grand Prize drawing?
While you're at Art 'n Soul, please don't forget the wonderful make-'n-takes that might help you out with that last-minute card you need. Dianne, Deb, Patti and Alissa would be delighted to walk you through any or all of them.
The washi tape finally arrived and it's on the front counter. I think they're going to go pretty darn fast, so be sure to come in and choose from the nice selection before the one you want disappears. I'll order another selection after the first of the year!
Dianne made this beautiful card! Don't you love those vivid colors?
My grandniece's 6th birthday was Sunday. She is a totally 'girly-girl' girl and my nickname for her is Princess. I made this card for her using paper from Graphic 45's Nutcracker Sweet; it was perfect because the color blue is one of her favorites right now.

Speaking of Graphic 45, I am in awe of this sleigh made with the Nutcracker Sweet papers . . .
From Hero Arts showing a card made from one of their new stamps debuting for 2013. I really like how they added pearls on some of the typewriter keys.
From Dreamweaver Stencils' blog, here's another way to Zentangle your favorite stencil designs!
Gel Inks...a Great Opportunity to Get Inky with Dreamweaver!
Once the inked butterfly was dry (it doesn't take long) he cut it out with an x-acto knife and since it was a team effort I paste embossed the butterfly stencil's antenna (LG740) onto the metallic lavender cardstock and then when they were dry I paste-embossed the art nouveau flourish (LJ919) into the corner. For both paste applications I used the Matte Black Embossing Paste (DMBP). Then I mounted the butterfly with glue aligning the antenna. Violå... a beautiful creation to send to someone you really care about, or you could also frame this in a small shadow box for a more dimensional look!"
I hope you don't mind me including this story and appeal for cards. It really touched me that this loving son-in-law would go to these lengths to help his mother-in-law.
