Thinking of You... AND the LAST CHANCE LISTS are here!

Today is the day. The 'Last Chance' List (formerly retired list) is here. And check out the Last Chance Accessories List too. Going forward, you will find these lists located on my right side bar under 'Current Promotions'.
You'll also want to check out the start of the Summer Fun Hostess Bonus Promotion, earn additional hostess rewards - yipee :) Get a few friends together to place a qualifying order or take advantage yourself, combine your last chance products or any merchandise and earn these extra rewards.

IMPORTANT: Don't delay on any of your favorites from the Last Chance List as it will literally be your last chance and it is only while supplies last. We all know we will have to say goodbye to our In Colors, so be sure to stock up on all products with your favorite In Colors: your inks/reinkers, cardstock, Designer Paper, Scrappin Kits, buttons, oh my... while supplies last!!!!!! Place your online order as soon as you can (you will know at the time of placing your order if stock has run out!)

Onto the card... very simple design. Its for a gentleman my husband has known since he was a little boy. He just found out he has cancer and has been undergoing some harsh chemo, so this is to let him know he is in our thoughts and prayers.

To the Nines Specialty paper and Sage Shadow kreates a masculine feel. A little Kraft Taffeta ribbon tucked behind my main image, hides my 'seams'. My main image was inked in Choc Chip Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. (TIP: you will need to use either Craft Ink or VersaMark as it is doesn't dry as fast as Classic Ink and its a bit stickier, so the embossing powder will stick to it before heating it up) TRICK , I don't have Sage Shadow Craft ink, BUT I was still able to emboss :) How? I inked up only my 'Thinking of you' words with VersaMark and then used my Sponge Dauber with Sage Shadow and dabbed that directly onto my stamp over the VersaMark. Sprinkled on my embossing powder, instant stick and heat embossed- perfecto :) Worked like a charm! Three Choc Chip brads from the 5/16" Neutrals Assortment finish off my kreation.
Enjoy your day and Happy Shopping :)

You can shop ALL product orders online with me. Don't miss out on your favorites!!!
