It's for real! It only took 35 years and it was worth every single year we've waited!

Sharon Morrison, Artist-in-Residence for IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko, likes to relax in the evenings by playing around with their products. This particular one reminds me so much of glass artistry from a Kosta Boda piece we have at home . . .

And I loved this one using IMAGINE Crafts' Vertigo™ . . .

Karen Burniston, Designer of Pop-it-Up Dies for Elizabeth Craft Designs, shared these 2 card designs on her FB postings . . .

"Caz Counsell posted this beautiful Butterfly Pivot card on her blog. I adore how she used two different stripes to make a backer. Very striking! See it here:"
"Soooo pretty! I love this Pop it Ups Butterfly Pivot card by Fran Sabad showing off some gorgeous Stampin' Up! supplies. She also used the Agatha Edges. See it here:"

And while we're talking Elizabeth Craft Designs, here's today's Facebook posting from Els . . .

"Work in progress! Playing with the NEW Australian Opal Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz and some of the mixing colors from the Silk Microfine glitter! The Australian Opal Gemstone (SS0225) is a gorgeous color with a silver core.

All the new Shimmer Sheetz and the two new sampler packs just arrived.
You can also see a piece of one of our NEW embossing folders that will arrive later this month. Can not wait to start showing you all of those!!"

As we await our order from Memory Box, take a look at these recent sample cards from their blog to inspire you.

Please be sure to stop in and see what's awaiting your selection from the first Impression Obsession order we received last Friday. I wish I were home so I could pick up my order right now! Dianne was a little lonesome today (Monday), so please stop in and say 'hi' tomorrow . . . she'd be thrilled to see you.

The wi-fi was stretched a little earlier today; I couldn't open any websites, including this blog. Must be all of the online traffic out of this place celebrating the Seahawk Super Bowl win; I don't think the Bronco contingency is saying much.


NOTE:  I don't know what time this posts since I'm on Eastern Standard Time right now. If it posts as Pacific Standard Time, all references in this post as 'today' are good. If it posts as Eastern Standard Time, all references in this post are for Monday!
