Important Reminder:
Because Easter Sunday falls on the first Sunday of April this year, Art 'n Soul's Recycled Rubber Sale will be held the following weekend . . .
Saturday, April 11 & Sunday, April 12.

Two deliveries to the store were made today from Notions and Product. I don't know exactly what was in those orders but I did hear that a lot of pink-sheet orders were filled! Good excuse to stop by Art 'n Soul tomorrow! And on my front porch, the May Arts' ribbon order was waiting to be opened! All in all, a fun day!

I have become a real fan of Birgit Edblom's card making artistry. This is another card shown on the Penny Black blog.

This is the link to her blog post; the video is The Four Seasons by Vivaldi that she listened to while making the card.

I saw this on Facebook and was totally impressed. A mixed-media artist, Diane Scott, used cut-off ends of celery stalks as stamps and ended up with a lovely bouquet in her art journal.

I couldn't find a web or blog page for her, but she is an artist with an Etsy account, so I will direct you to that page:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/DianesMixedMediaArt

On the Hero Arts' blog, they're showcasing winners from their recent Nature Challenge. One of the top 4 winners was Anja. I love this card!

Be sure to look at her other blog postings; she has
really nice work!

On the Magenta blog, they've announced the winning card from their March challenge. It's definitely a winner!

This is the link to Yvonne's posting about this card on her blog:

The blog will be in another language; at the top of the screen, a Google logo will show "English" and a button to the right that says "Translate". Click on that button and the posting will be in English.

This is the link to the Magenta post that also showcases other winning entries to the March challenge:

A special birthday deserves a special card; at least, I hope she thinks it's a special card! Making the card proves that dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, PoppyStamps and Hero Arts are very compatible.
