It's Monday!

Hello everyone! Did you have a nice weekend? Not to many more left before old man winter  comes a knockin at our doors, Blah! I am just not ready for this. And, do you know we have less than 100 days til Christmas!! I have no clue where this year went! We went to PA for two of our grandchildren birthday party! Abbie turned five and Andrew 3..oh no the baby of 10 is 3 years old...yikes...come on Jennifer!!  LOL Jennifer is my DIL who still wants more children!

Before we left for PA I filled some card orders and tonight's card is one of them. LOL  when I was adding my watermark I almost died for I noticed it wasn't completely colored! OMGosh and it was delivered on Friday and I haven't heard a word about it! Let me tell ya, I almost died for it was made for my best customer. I will have to do her next card for half price! Only I could do this!!

TIP OF THE DAY: Stamping on Vellum. I have stamped my sentiment on vellum paper before and was greatly disappointed when I tried to adhere it to the card.  No matter what I tried to adhere the card with such as tape, glue, etc. it would show through the vellum and look horrible.  The cards I posted on September 14, I tried something new and it is awesome! Stamp your sentiment onto the vellum and then dry emboss it with a Cuttlebug folder. Walaaa!! You can use regular two way tape and it will not show through! Plus, I love the look for it  looks more professionalism! Remember to stamp it first and then emboss it.  Trust will love this!
