This is the morning to be at Art 'n Soul because it all starts at 10:00 a.m. Recycled Rubber weekend begins and there are some fabulous finds to be found. The store is open from 10:00 to 5:00 today, and from 12:00 noon to 5:00 tomorrow. Carolyn and Marj will look forward to seeing you tomorrow! Remember, it's the 'early bird' that catches the best worms . . . just sayin'.

And while you're at Art 'n Soul this weekend, please take the time to look at the class boards for 3 amazing classes later this month, as well as the new papers. The classes are filling up very quickly!

These are the new core'dinations papers taken to Art 'n Soul earlier this week from Darice, and some of their new basic card stock.

4x6-inch "chalk" paper pak of 40 with either a white core or colored core (5 colors); great for embossing and light sanding!

6x6-inch Tim Holtz Rustic Colors with Natural Kraft core on 80 lb. card stock
48-sheet pad

6x6-inch Tim Holtz shattered-design colored 80 lb. card stock
with a Natural Kraft core 48-sheet pad -- 24 colors

A2 Size Tim Holtz Distress colored card stock with
natural kraft core -- 72-sheet pad made for cutting,
embossing and distressing

core'dinations heavyweight 110 lb. White card stock
with smooth texture in 6x6 paper pak of 40 sheets
core'dinations heavyweight 110 lb. White card stock
with smooth texture in 8.5" x 11" paper pak of 15 sheets

This 110 lb. card stock was tested with alcohol markers at the CHA show and I felt that the colors did not break through to the backside of the card stock as much as it does on other card stock, including the blending card stock. However, the longer you keep the nib in one spot, the more chance the color will bleed through. We also tried it with the new Chameleon markers and I liked the results.

These are the 12x12 flocked swiss dot pattern card stock from core'dinations, one of which I made a card with shown on my last blog posting.

I've had 2-1/2 days this week that I could not work on anything due to my frequently-visiting nausea and head pain. So at first opportunity, I have new washi papers and an embossed frame card panel to bring to the store. Please stay tuned!

It was necessary to break up this posting in order to 'publish' it, so please scroll down for the "rest of the story".
