Shabby Chic and Last Day Of Promotion

Don't you love the shabby "chic-ness" of the card below.  It is CASED from a couple of different cards that I saw on Stampin' Connection (demo online website). I combined two or more ideas I saw on other cards and came up with this one.  Of course, though when I went back to see who I had CASED, I couldn't find the cards anymore.  I usually save the ones I CASE in my favorites, but they weren't there.  I do always like to give credit when I borrow someone else's design and/or idea.

I have really got to take a photography class, because this card really does look better in real life.
This one of the cards that my stamp club made this month.  Later this week, I'll show you the other card that we made.  It is a completely different style from this one.

I would list the stamps, accessories and etc. that I used on this card, but I am out of town for the next several days and apparently left home without my Idea Book and Catalog!!  Can you believe I did that?!  I did remember to bring the supplies to work on a card swap that I am participating in though.

Oh, and I wanted to remind you that today (7/31) is the last day to join SU! as a demonstrator for the low, low price of $99.  You really don't want to miss this opportunity so contact me ASAP!

cardstock: always artichoke, cherry cobbler, not quite navy, and river rock
ink: always artichoke

Ribbon Share!

Rose Red 1/2 Inch Seam Binding Ribbon - by Stampin' Up!
Have you ever wanted a lot of the Stampin' Up! ribbon, but knew you didn't need 10-15 yards of each color?   Or maybe you fell in love with one particular style of ribbon, but couldn't afford to buy it in all the available colors?  Well, me too, for both of the above, therefore, I have decided to do a ribbon share.  What is a ribbon share?  It is where you buy a share of a roll of ribbon.  For example,  this month I am going to offer a ribbon share for the seam binding ribbon.  Since, I have never done this before, I am starting small and only offering the seam binding.  If this goes well, I will be offering more shares in the future for some of the other ribbon.
So for the seam binding the cost is $17 for  a total of 19 1/4 yards of seam binding ribbon, which includes taxes and shipping to me. 
The colors you will be receiving are always artichoke, baja breeze, cherry cobbler, crumb cake, pear pizazz, rose red (pictured above), and very vanilla.  You will receive 2 3/4 yards of each color.
If you would like to participate in this share you need to email me your:
email address
mailing address
and phone number
I will then send you an invoice from paypal to your email address for $17.  When I receive the ribbon, I will divide it all up, package it,  and send you an invoice for the cost of mailing it to you.
I need at least 7 people to participate in this share. 
So don't delay!  Here is a way to get the ribbon you want in all the colors in all the styles over the next few months starting with the seam binding ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you,
