Happy Mail and the Last bunch of Christmas Cards

This first card I've had for some time now and never got around to editing the photo I shot of it, it came to me all the way across the big pond from Penny. The sentiment reads " A friend is someone who makes it easy" the ladies face collage is up on pop dots and stamped on transparency sheet, not sure what to tell you on how it was done, but that link will take you to Penny's blog... this has the most incredible shimmer but, i didn't catch that with the camera.
I did this one yesterday ( with no glasses on ) haha, tried coloring the day before but, ended up tossing everything i tried to color. this one was for DH. the Amore heart print is from Hero Arts and stamped with Memories Chestnut ink on SU River Rock CS. the little hearts in it are colored with an Marker. the darker mat cs is Mellow Moss. the With Love sentiment is stamped with Baroque Burgundy on the Mellow Moss and punched with an Whale of a Punch tag, the fancy Flexible phrase Merry Christmas is stamped on the back side of an piece of bazzill and then punched with an Martha Stewart tag. (there is an pop dot on it too) The Printed Paper is i think a scrap of K&Co ( but could possibly be Anna Griffin?) Ive had this a long time don't really remember anymore. The ribbon is May Arts and the hat pin is something a local lady makes and has an lss here sell for her. This card is 5X7 in real life.
This is another 5 X7 sized card, I had colored all the images here and below some time ago and made this next 4 cards the night before we left for the hospital. ( good way to burn off nervous energy.) I didn't photograph them because all of them have stickles and Ive ruined quite a few cards having them fall over while the glitter glue is still wet. The Peace ( Penny Black) is stamped on Very Vanilla with Olive Archival ink (Ranger) and up on pop-dots. the Basic Grey (holly pp) has red stickles on the berries of the pp. the corners have some hemp cord from walmart on them and the red satin ribbon is unknown. The So Saffron cardstock is matted with a green Basic Grey Scrap. ( same scraps as some of the other Christmas cards i have posted previously)
This one the only things really different about it is it's an 6 inch square (card base is textured Bazzill) the red dot pp is from Daisy D's and the red texture pp is from Provo Craft, the ribbon is offray and i trimmed the penny black image with postage scissors, ( which didn't look good) so then went around the edges of the image with micro tip scissors and matched it up a little better.
This one is a-2 in size, the Lockhart angel is colored with Prisma Pencils, and punched with an Marvy Lever scalloped oval. the Celebrate is from the Su set fancy flexible phrases, there is some chalk inking on the edges of the scallops and glitter glue on her wings, the blue sparkle cardstock is Bazzill, the ribbon i picked up by the yard at wal-mart years ago. ( its reversible and if i had to guess id say Wrights) just because our walmart carries mainly that brand in there fabric dept. I think that pale blue stickles may be one of the newer colors.
Same thing only in a redish rosy color. don't remember who makes that pp. but i did add some red stickles to it. that sheer ribbon is actually a peachy pink color and i bought it by the yard years ago at Joann's Fabrics. that's about it. today's big thing will be a trip to an local (fancy scmancy) home store that usually has really cool ornaments with Alice.
Happy Christmas Eve!


First "florist" Roses

Pretty eh? My grandparents were just here a little bit ago. :)
I have never received a dozen red florist roses before so this really floored me.
I know what your thinking What? how many years you've been married!?!
It's true my husband does buy my roses ( but, they are all in the yard with the roots in the dirt) :)
I have learned another thing, I am not steady enough to hold the camera yet so, the cards i made right before we left for the hospital will still have to wait. (gotta hunt up a tripod) and that seems like too much work for the moment. We have our employee's Christmas Dinner tonight. and Last night DH took me to Fred Meyers. ( don't get too excited its a grocery/ little of everything store on in the Northwest) but, the fun part was the pharmacist was still open so he mentioned that Mayonnaise might get the antibiotic ointment out of my hair without dissolving the stitches. It was nice to get out.
So, I'm gonna try that one in a few so i have time to get it dry and get it together before tonight.


Today is going much better

I feel more like my self, didn't have a the first thought upon waking as holy cow i could really use another pain pill. the feeling of standing on the seashore and feeling the tide washing over you with that whoosh whoosh dizzy overwhelming feeling is gone now too. I could only feel the wires of the implant immediately after waking from the surgery and pretty much that day. the only things i feel now are close to the skin and the skin itself. Its a little itchy and a little tight feeling i guess. I've even been up pretty much all day today, tried laying down but actually didn't fall asleep. So got back up again. the encouraging part is i really want to go stamp. (but so far all the things i have gotten done (washed some dishes last night) put some laundry in today and wrapped a few gifts on my bed i did this leaning on things.) so, not so sure I want to climb the stairs though. So anyways. Thanks again for the support. I did get some happy mail and I just wanted to say thanks! :)


not feeling so great

this is the surgery i had last wed. ( an cochlear implant ) the internal parts are all in. http://www.bionicear.com/index.cfm?langid=1 and i felt really good up there, so much so i expected to be able to go to work on friday. ( haha spent friday and most of today asleep or not moving) I also have developed a black eye and the left side of my face seems to have swollen and looks lower then the right side. ( the implants on the left) took the bandages off last night, nope not gonna flash graphic photos here. but, the line of stitches is longer then the surgeon lead me to believe it would be. its tingly and sore. (my ear is) not sure if this is normal or what not.(I have finally taken the plunge and requested an Mentor) so, we'll see what they have to say. I don't go back to the hospital to see the surgeon again until after the holidays in January as he has to see me first before i can get the outside parts hooked up and he only sees people on Tuesday's and Fridays. so. I think part of why i feel so much worse at home is the trip home is if your not familiar with Oregon there are lots of mountains and so the altitude changes is i think what has done it. hopefully this too shall pass. (SOON) :) I had my husband wash my hair today. that is something i hope not to repeat any time soon. our house is not set up for someone who cannot get their ears wet.


Were Home

just a quick update, we got home last night but i couldn't see out my eyes long enough to type an update. ( I cant put my glasses on till the dressing come off which should be tonight when Tim gets home from work) yippee. I'm starting to feel dirty and yucky. sponge baths don't do much for long hair. haha. I'm doing really well all things considered. if some ever says to you it feels like having an ice pick shoved in your ear. well, that is what it feels like when you wake up. but, by the second does of pain pills that's gone. I pretty much slept all day wed. then yesterday we took our time coming home and did stop and finish some last minute Christmas gift shopping ( which really wore me out) so, since DH has put all these gifts on the kitchen table i guess i have about 5 hours to pull it together and get them either wrapped or hid. ( before the school bus gets here) Im not allowed to bend over ( like with my head below my waist) or sneeze, or blow my nose, or get water in my ears yet. ( but the paper doesnt say for how long) Tim thinks maybe till the bandages come off. so I gotta write at least one more note probably to the hospital to check on that one. then i guess its back to bed with me. Thanks for your prayers and your cards. more later, me.


another Quick Christmas card

the Hero Arts sentiment is stamped on Su very vanilla card stock then trimmed with mini pinking shears, its on a scrap of Provocraft textured paper ( that has a little bit of sparkle to it) and the holly and green pp are both Basic Grey scraps ( still laying on the table) and the Yellow mat is So Saffron, the green textured card stock base is Bazzill. this is 6 inches Square in real life. the mini brads are from Doodle bug, ( ladybug) funny thing, i have three different packs of those brads and each pack is a slightly different color. this particular pack was more on the burgundyish end of the red then the others.


{250 posts}

I kept thinking it would have been more fun to have something totally neat to share, but i broke one of my teeth ( i dont know how) over the weekend. ( noticed it at lunch on sunday) have the filling and part of the tooth left. so, today i am headed to the dentist to get some kind of a temporary thing put in so the filling and the rest of the tooth does not fall out or break off more. and let him figure out how to deal with it maybe at the end of January or something. got to steal time to wrap gifts too. picked up the new pirate movie at the grocery store today and AM looking forward to seeing that. J seen it with Alice when ever it was at the theaters earlier in the year... Hopefully getting the temp. put in will put me back into a i wanna play mood. :) I miss my stamps. m0re later, Me


this weekends Christmas cards

So, this was almost the card that wasn't. :) Yesterday i started this and i got it all done except for the stitching. I changed the thread color in my machine and i keep clear thread on the bobbin as a short cut. so, I kept having the thread snarl and it felt like the gears were grinding when i tried to back it up and lock the stitches. ( warning: do not try to operate your sewing machine at the end of a LONG day when your brain is ready to go to bed) ha i could not get it to sew i was ready to demand a new machine for Christmas i was so frustrated. then as i was going to bed i thought you know whats wrong the stupid tension is off. then i thought some more, did you hit the wheel? had no idea but, i was able to actually fall asleep with the thought it was something I could fix my self. haha. so anyways, after the failed threads yesterday the stripe paper ( my minds eye ) had some thread holes in it, so when i got it all up and running today i tried to do one of those wiggle ly type line sewing instead of something straight. when you sew in a mostly straight line on auto-pilot its Hard to wiggle the stitch line. So anyways this card is going to the lady i have at work who answers the phone for me, the snowmans from Inkadinkado ( and colored with prisma pencils), the Sentiment's from PSX the ribbon is May Arts, the blue textured cardstock is bazzill and this ones 5 x 7 inches in real life.
This is another of those Christmas images i colored recently its from an old su set called seasonal birdhouses, the savvy stamps sentiment is on an SU word window punch on old olive cardstock and the yellow mat is so saffron yellow. the red pp is daisy d's and the holly is Basic grey. the big brads are from Bo Bunny Press & do not go inside the card just the mat. The textured cardstocks are Bazzill. best guess on the stitched ribbon is Offray ( either Joanns or Walmart ) but not real positive on that one. This one is 6 inches square in real life. ( and not intended to send to anyone... yippee i have a head start on next year if i dont get one from someone i didnt send one to already. ) ha after i mail them that is, they are still sitting here addressed with postage on, but i have not cut up J's school mug shots yet for the family members getting photos in their cards...
( maybe tomorrow or tuesday i hope )


Blast from Last Christmas'es Cards

Way back in the use the scanner for everything days... this one i did a few of this design ( don't remember how many) the poinsettia is from Penny black and heat embossed on textured bazzill with distress powder.
this one the hero Arts dahlia is stamped repeatedly with fired brick distress on cream cardstock then the centers are colored with prisma pink pencil then there is some random red stickles glittler glue in some centers, ( this is layered a few times) and was about 5 x7 ish i think?
This was just one of those things, had to have this stamp, couldn't make it look good with markers so i heat embossed it in gold on red, and made the flowers into cards with pp scraps. did two or three similar to this, the gold on the paper edges is all krylon paint pen. ( i was all over that pen last year haha)
oh dug this Noel out and did the same things with it more or less...
this one was slightly more 3-d there is another layer of flowers on it...
Loved the lace and the color combo of this one, stamps are Hero Arts.
now this cracks me up, i have all these dies you see, i have never used them in scrapbook pages, but i told my self i had to get my moneys worth out of them so i must have made 60 of this one... ( i still have 30 of these bases just like this with no stockings on them) the flowers in the stocking are from a QK die ( and part of that was vellum) and such a pain in the rear to get out of the die without ruining the paper... the gold balls are beads and if i remember right they rubbed off in the mail and everyone who got this card got gold ball confetti in the bottoms of the envelope. ( this is what it was supposed to look like)
live and learn eh?
these made me smile to find the photos at least i had them on a disk, our computers hard drive died last Christmas and so, alot of the the old stuff is gone, some that was uploaded to the albums at peas is gone, oh well. anyways i think I'm gonna put up the tree today. :)


Last Years Christmas card

The card i made dh's parents last year... the holly and berry stamps are also older PSX ones, Ive heat embossed them in gold and then painted layers of Twinkle H2O's onto them and cut out parts and layered and tucked here and there and there are a LOT of pop dots hiding in that design too... the sentiments from an older SU set called great greetings. so anyways this is whats in the back of my mind about them maybe not liking the flat card below... I thought i had this posted to this blog and was going to link back to last Christmases cards, but last year i must have felt like i should wait till after Christmas to post them because of you know my family does peek at the photos here so... i guess i never got around to posting last years Christmas cards haha... I did do some other designs. so, I wonder if i have photos saved of them? That's curious, I'll have to look later. I have to go back to work. ( had to come home for a bit for the school bus)

A Simple Christmas Card

have i ever mentioned how much i absolutely LOVE prisma pencils?!?! haha I think this is one of the very first stamps i ever purchased. ( a long time ago) and i have Never up until today made a card with it, its not that i didn't like it,but i kept trying to color it with markers and it frustrated me so i set it aside... and then recently i went through the box that has all my Christmas images and stamped every single one of them, and I've been coloring them at night while my family watches the boob tube. Picked up an lap board thing at Staples on black friday and have a floor lamp ott light and my little tote of pencils and I am good to go. Think this one will end up going to my mil & fil. ( hopefully it wont be a let down, the card i made them last year was one of the better ones i have ever made. so?) I know i know its the thought that counts but still... :)
the whole card It's 5X7 in real life, the PSX Christmas Chickadees stamp is stamped in Palette Noir Black ink and colored with pencils, the Hero Arts sentiment is stamped in Ranger Archival Olive on SU Very Vanilla. ( my brain always types ultra smooth vanilla but they don't call it that anymore)
The Solid green pp is from the Basic Grey line Blitzen and its called Holly, the other is from the Fruitcake line and its called Hollyberries & Spearmint. the Textured green cardstock mat is Bazzill, the vintage lace trim is from the embellishment studio and the red ribbon is from Starlitstudio ( Cindy Lyles ebay store)


Some more Happy mail Cards

This one came to me from Jaymerz in the splitcoast wish rak group. :)
This one came to me from Kathi 127 as an RAK Challenge card, ( evidently part of my address is part of her phone number haha) lol : )
This one is an Birthday card from Angie ( Shuggy )
This is Kim ( Spartymom's) survivor card She mailed me a quarter of those cute crab images to play with too. :)
This one is Christie's Survivor card. :)
I have gotten some emails and comments in the past about the happy mail i receive, and i have to tell you i think its just simply i belong to cool groups of stampers and i mail out a lot of cards, and a lot of images, ( i spend a small fortune on postage actually) so, i think its just a case of what goes around comes around... if you want happy mail you need to be mailing out happy mail. ( esp. when you don't feel happy at all ) because, that's when your most likely to receive some.
I got my very first Christmas card of this year in the mail today. ( from Sherri flipflops!!) but, its already too dark to photograph it... I may wait till after the holidays and do one big holiday happy mail post. and i think I may stop posting these cards after that. I don't know if you realize this but, it does take a little bit of time to photograph them then add each makers name to the photos. (that's the hard part looking up the info when you think of them by their real name) :)
If i knew how to make a poll I'd start one that said do you think happy mail posts should continue in 2008 or do you only want to see projects made by the person whose blog you are visiting?
anyways feel free to comment on that one, its something I'm curious about...

They are Done here now...

Yesterday afternoon peeking out of the hobby room window looking west...
Early this morning before i left for work looking south
Looking northwest this morning.
About 4 pm here and they are done in our yard... ( looks like we got a road) haha. ( and some seriously potential flower beds next spring)
they did remove the concrete bridge yesterday, and then have since then put in the new pipe and removed all the pieces of the old bridge that were piled up all day. I know this is going to be a "good thing" next summer during mosquito season, but the resentful part of me does not want to give up my upcoming weekend to reinstall fencing... ( its usually below freezing here right now even during the day) so not fun to be working in. lets hope it doesn't snow! :)
I have some over due photos of happy mail cards to post but, will give them their own post. ( for all the people who are not reading my rants) :)


Irrigation District is Officially HERE

So, about 25 minutes ago the irrigation district officially made it onto our yard to dig... they go home for the day in about an hour. The tempature out side right now is about 35 degrees... brrr. They told me they will dig the part for the water pipe to be moved lower tomorrow...
This is another rak image bella, She's colored with prisma pencils and layered to a scrap of foil transferred distress ink on white cardstock. the rubber Soul sentiment is stamped on a scrap of the same cs with versafine ink, then punched with the Martha Stewart scallop circle. this is on a pop dot of an A Muse scallop circle image stamped with versafine Spanish moss ink on certainly celery cardstock, then punched with an mega sized marvy punch. the textured cardstocks are from Bazzill and the ribbon is from May Arts. this is about 5 1/2 x 6 inches in real life.
this one the giraffe is from the SU set called little hello's it was wish raked to me by 4 or 5 different people but, this particular one is stamped in dark brown ink with no sentiment on cream cardstock. the Sentiment is from the SU set called Happy Harmony and its stamped on a Chatterbox label with palette hybrid ink (cognac) which matches the chatterbox orangish color pretty well in real life, the mini brads are from doodlebug and are tangerine colored. The stripe pp is from Ever After Paper Co. and the Carmel linen is from EK Sucess. this is a-2 in real life, the ribbons & Mulberry paper are unknown. used the su slot punch to make the holes large enough for the ribbon to pass through on the book plate.
So this is just a quickie with some of the scraps laying on the table from some of the previous cards, that pp is from K& Co but its in a pad at walmart and they are calling it something else ( made by k& co) who knows? anyways, there is some stickles in the scallops and the same sentiment stamped on the inside of the card. the textured cardbase is from Bazzill.
Keep Warm!


More from the weekend

So, these are some 2,5,7,10 boxes with flaps. and another bella birthday card. ( the bellas in these projects were RAK'ed to me) the directions for the boxes can be found at Splitcoaststampers.
This one, i don't remember who makes the printed papers off the top of my head, if i remember to look later i will edit the post. but, I'm thinking K&Co. as best guess. the blue sheer ribbon is offray and the scrolly printed is something ( from a scrapbook store that was cut by the yard and i don't remember) the Bella is colored with Prisma Pencils and up on pop-dots. The Happy Birthday is from rubber soul and punched with the designer tag punch from SU.
Now, these are pure experiment for me, I've never had much luck with these 3-d projects so, I ordered one of those score-pals and i had it in my hands in less then a week during a holiday week. so that is fast. its lightweight, and i think it will be easy to store and take places for that reason, I had originally wanted a score-it. but the store that had them had ONE and the owner never replaced the stock... ( she offers coupons)
so, anyways. I figured they would not turn out so the two on the georgia pacific cardstock i just randomly stamped some images with (all the same ink) versafine satin red and put the boxes together the way the directions read. the only thing i have to figure out now is exactly where to put the holes for the ribbon to tie through. the first one, is very crooked ( back right side) the second one, i ripped the cardstock trying to make a bow. part of the problem was I have the holes not lined up, so this one is being disassembled and the ribbon will go to another something sooner or later.
the one in the front with the partygirlabella i did change it to i trimmed the flap part to much smaller then it starts out as to show off the bella image and then i was also feeling brave enough to use good cardstock the box on this one is pale plum. the happy birthday is from hero Arts and punched with an Martha stewart punch then layered to an 1 1/16" EK sucess plain circle punch. There is some gold thread through a hole in the top of it.
So far i have not figured out how to make the bows "pretty" doing this yet either. May be easier to do with something thin like organdy instead of these thicker ones, plus may work better with double sided ribbon too.
Not sure yet.
when i get a minute I'm gonna go peek at the other 3-d tutorials on the list and try something new.


Stamped Images Box

Today i finished this box. I posted about it a while ago after i was accepted into the RAK group at splitcoaststampers, I joined the sub forum wish rak almost right off the bat and have been horse-swapping images in the stamp shack and two peas for some time now, so a few months ago I found the tin file box on the bottom at a yard sale for 50 cents. I painted it red with some acrylic paint and layered on some Basic Grey Blush line papers... (with modge podge) and promptly tossed all the images inside. Oh i printed labels, but the dividers that were in the box when i got it were dirty and bent so i tossed them in the garbage. On Black Friday when i was at Staples i picked up a new pack of the dividers and just flipped them around, so if you were to pick up this box backwards you'd see the alphabet pre-printed on them. But, its not too likely to happen and this box is Heavy. The tin on the top is holding ranger alcohol inks and blending solution bottles.
This is a look inside, i didn't paint the inside and i did toss most the baggies i had things in previously. (and the envelopes too) so, from now on i may not say who mailed me what because, I don't remember exactly for each thing, and some images two or more people sent the same things...
Font on these is Will and Grace, and printed on teeny tiny clear address labels that i trimmed the excess parts off with scissors after sticking them to the cards.
I also gave my new score-pal a work out today. ( made 3 little 2-5-7-10 boxes and another rak image card) but, its too dark for photos already.
maybe tomorrow.
ooooh i dont know why i waited so long to get the score-pal. I'm pretty impressed with it, i dont seem to have much luck with following along with the directions for the three-d projects where you have to move the paper to find where to score. so this is just brilliant. It is much lighter and portable feeling then the score-it they had at the lss i used to teach in, but its also significantly more afordable. I ordered it direct from the mfg. last Sunday, and it was delivered to me on this friday evening. Score-Pal is an member co. at Splitcoast if you want to chat with the owner and ask questions.
Pretty much thats it for now, I'm getting better, still tired all the time and not at normal yet. maybe tomorrow.


Survivor Loot

A while back there was an online game in the stamp shack called survivor. and every day there would be a statement read. if you used such and such your card was removed from the survivor gallery and my card was the last one left, and this is all the loot that showed up in the mail today for that. WHOO! :)
this is my card, its a red sparkly premade card base from DMD industries with an piece of papertrey white card stock that i used my cropodile to poke some holes in it, the white sneaker shoe lace is from Wal-mart and the sentiment is stamped in versafine satin red pigment ink.

I kinda even scrapped...

haha if you can call it that? I found this window frame with chicken wire in the hole for 12.00 at a craft bazaar last weekend, so i removed the chicken wire and then i smeared some pale green acrylic paint across it here and there as it was pretty much the color of the walls ( off white ) so, so far this is all that's done to it, just some Basic grey pp and some winter photos. Probably going to find an old old photo of one of Tim and mines first winters together photos ( pre parents ones you know ) :) I know i could add more and more and more to this and make it look like "real" scrapbooking on the wall, but so far I'm enjoying the simplicity of it...
This one the SU set "Its about time" is stamped on Sahara sand cardstock with Versafine smokey grey ink and then there is some Hero Arts dot circles in Nick Bantock Charcoal Grey over the top of that. the Rabbit is from Fishbone graphics and stamped in Versafine Vintage sepia and colored with markers. The mini brads are unknown, the handmade paper is from Provocraft, the brown velvet paper scrap is unknown, the stripe pp is from Cratepaper, The So Sorry is stamped with Palette Noir Black on the same Sahara sand then cut out with the Martha Stewart tag punch, it has a pop dot under it and some old style SU silver cord through the hole. This one is 6 inches Square in real life.
This one i messed it up putting the cross corner stitches on the main image and then tried to "fix" it by adding a zig-zag around all the edges...
which to my eye is way too much red thread, such is life. the Rubber Romance ( Melanie ) is stamped on white with black ink then colored with Markers, i paper pieced the bags from scraps of crate paper, the Red Ribbon is May Arts, the cream is offray, the Sentiment is from Hero Arts i added an little Savvy Stamps flower to it and rubbed some antique linen distress ink over the top of it all. ( it was too white) This one is 6 inches square also.
must have been the day for square cards... this one is an wish rak image of the Partygirlabella from Jaymerz Thanks Jamie! she's colored with prisma pencils, the printed papers are from an old slab pad papers from Joann's a few years ago. the silver paper ribbon is from an Big Lots spool last year, the sentiments from the su set Fancy flexible phrases and punched out with an punch bunch rectangle, the matted to an yellow sized marvy scallop rectangle. The silver cord is the old style su stuff ( it unravels when you cut it) and the purple ribbon is from May Arts. tfl.


Some Cards from today

One of these days i gotta think of a new title for these posts... ( today's cards seems a little funny for days in a row) :) this one the main image is "Bunnie" from the Rubber Romance Line. Shes colored with prisma pencils. the Sentiment's from Limited Editions (has some fired brick distress ink on it) the printed papers are from Crate Paper and have some machine sewing on them. the Hemp string goes in and out the same eyelet holes ( and then there is a small loop of it taped to the back side) couldn't figure out how else to do it without having too many holes in the front of the card, so, its just sitting under the big antique brad ( which is either from MM or Joann's) ( not really sure anymore i have all my big brads in one jar together) The card base on this one is from Neenah Papers. ( its almost the color of river rock but, maybe a little paler)
These Poppies are an wish Rak Image sent to me by Nancy {CrookedRiver} I wanted to do something Simple with these and i liked this one enough i made 4 of them the same. they are 4 1/4" x 6" cards.
I turned on another light before this single card was shot so the pink color is not real. the stripe pp is from The Paper Co. (paprika) and the black and green texture cardstock is from Bazzill. ( not sure about the mat on the sentiment its from the scrap bin) the Sentiment ( from Fancy Flexible Phrases) is punched with the smallest size Marvy scallop rectangle (yellow) and the mat is the blue size. ( I wish i could find these in the plain edges with no scallops at this size, so if you happen to see them in an online store please post a holler as a comment here.. I've been unsuccessfully begging the store owners where i live to order them for me for about 6 months now ( however long the new shapes have been out) and so far, nada. found these scalloped ones on the PaperTrey site a while back...anyways the ribbon is from May Arts, and the flowers are colored with prisma pencils. There was no school here today and the butter may have softened enough to make cookie dough now, so more later. Have a good Thanksgiving!
