The April Recycled Rubber Sale at Art 'n Soul begins at 10:00 a.m. this morning (Saturday) and 12:30 p.m. tomorrow (Sunday). I saw some of the treasures that will be out for sale and there are some very real bargains to be found. Don't delay . . .

Another reason to arrive early at Art 'n Soul this morning. The Rosie's Roadshow order arrived yesterday afternoon, and this is what was left at the end of the day.

Pam added two more beautiful shaker cards to the store's shaker collection at Art 'n Soul. She even 'zentangled™' the background of one of the shakers.

My husband and I enjoyed a dinner honoring good friends who celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary. The best man and matron of honor were there, and many many friends. Since it was their 50th anniversary, it allowed me the chance to use the Memory Box die that I purchased a short while ago.

I embossed the gold mirricard card stock top panel and the 50th after I die cut it. I also die cut the gold glitter paper and placed that as a 'shadow' behind by off-setting the top die-cut slightly. Thank goodness for the Ken Oliver Stick It! adhesive sheets specifically made for intricate dies; it really does take the worry out of how to adhere those intricately-cut areas. The background to the die is velvet paper in rust. A silk-crushed ribbon bow in antique gold finished the card.

On the Poppy Stamps blog, Mary McMillan has made a card using a die cut as a background stencil. I really like how this turned out.

Carolyn and Marj are looking forward to seeing you at Art 'n Soul today. Remember, you want to come early because there is a lot to look through, see and possibly 'drool' over before purchasing!

One last question . . . what percentage of your cards end up different than what you had originally designed in your mind?
