It's Friday and the Sun is out!! Yeaaaaaa!!

Hello Happy Crafty friends and a big shout out to all my new friends! You really are what keeps me going and I pray I am making you smile in my little blog land here!  For everyone who has been following me about our new mattresses the third one was a keeper!! We have had three new mattress's in the past 3-4 months trying to find one which allowed us to sleep peacefully and wake up without all the extra aches and pains. The one we kept is a Tempur-pedic Cloud and let me tell ya what we paid for it you would expect it to sing you lullabies too!

I am going to start my Tip of the Day again! It's been awhile since I have done it and you might see some repeats for those who have not read them before so here we go!

TIP OF THE DAY:  Cuttlebug.  Does your B plate curve or arc when you are embossing with Die cuts?  Or does your paper come out of the die? My B plates have curved so much I had to replace them.    Now mine are flat as can be and my embossing is deeper, more crisp and the paper never comes out of the dies.  This is what I do. Instead of using two tan embossing mats, I took a cereal box and cut two pieces out of it the size of my B plate. My sandwich for embossing is:  B plate, die cut and paper, cardboard, tan mat, card board and B plate. By switching out one tan mat for two pieces of cardboard your plates remain flat with deeper embossing!

Today my card is made with Carmen Medlin's   "Siren's Call"  from the Natural Beauty Collection only available at SCACD.   Isn't she adorable in her gorgeous dress? I had so much fun coloring her and you will too!

Hi Colleen,

This is lovely... love the butterfly and the mermaid has such nice, soothing colours.

Thanks for the tip about Cuttlebug and it's plates. My B plates kind of look totally warped. And I just acquired them like 8 months ago...
