I heard that the Notions order came in today, so it was a busy, busy day at Art 'n Soul. I don't know what new goodies and treasures are there, but you'll want to check it out!
Look at this beautiful card on the Penny Black blog. Therese uses the Delicate Blossoms stamp from Penny Black with a repetitive stamp technique using markers, watercolor paper and a stamp positioner.

I love the Bokeh Technique and it's featured on this IMAGINE Crafts' blog posting . . . it's a wonderful video by Carisa. I have not been successful in downloading an image for you, so you'll have to take my word for it and click on this link:

Dianne will be at Art 'n Soul tomorrow. She'll be quite anxious and delighted to show you all of the "new" from Notions.
This is Bertie. He was the oldest living hippo in a North American zoo until today, living well beyond their natural age range. During his 58 years, he sired 29 offspring with two different mates at the Denver Zoo. In the wild, their normal lifespan is 30-40 years; in the zoos, their average lifespan is 50 years. I have a natural affection for hippos for many reasons and I couldn't resist not sharing this cute photo of Bertie with you.
