I am so excited! And I'm sure Susie will be as well! I learned on the Quietfire Design blog there is a fabulous new book focused on colored pencils. Suzanne, owner and designer of Quietfire Design, was asked to review the book.

It's available at according to Suzanne's blog post. This book is tops on my 'must order now -- action required' to-do list. You might also want to check with your local bookstore as well.

Dianne has posted a gorgeous CAS (clean and simple) card on her blog today. She loves poppies -- what she probably doesn't know is that I really love poppies and I bought this Magenta stamp too!

Here's the link to Dianne's blog, Back Porch, with the detailed instructions and a die-cutting technique you'll love!

Dianne will be at the store tomorrow, and I'm sure she'd be more than happy to explain 'in-person' all about this die cutting technique.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you tomorrow. If not, it's because the uploading and transition from my laptop to a new desktop took longer than the store anticipated. Fingers crossed!
