House Mouse Hee hee!

It is a beautiful day here today...not to hot or cool and not windy for a change......hm mm almost sounds like something is brewing doesn't it? We had a pretty bad storm a few days ago...with some hail damage on our van, one of my daughters car and my outdoor plastic end table....but hey, it could always be worse....and I must admit, the lawn certainly looks green now. Funny.. I can water and water the lawn and it seems to just barely hold its own...but give it one earth shattering, ground shaking storm and it just perks right up!

Today I have a card that I made for the recent Sketch Challenge; http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=273947

This was a fun sketch to work with. Check out the gallery of submissions for this sketch ... it is Fabulous!!

Here is my card...my goal was to make it suitable for even a fellas birthday...what do you think?

Stamps - House mouse, SU "It's your Birthday", Karen foster snap stamps.

Ink - Creamy caramel, close to cocoa, classic black and Vesafine black.

Paper - SU whisper white, DCWV textured card stock, K&C paper.

Image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and oderless mineral spirits...balloons are accented with Sakura stardust pens. It's your birthday is embossed.

Accessories - ribbon, brads, stitching, paper piercing for corners, scallops are done with the oval scallop punch and the coluzzle.

Thanks for looking and have a, "Super Wonderful Weekend" Everyone!!

Love, love, love this card. The shabby chic look is awesome, and so is the stitching, and that layout with the corners cut out in a unique way. Lovely job. I just tried to subscribe to your blog & it says the widget needs changing. I wondered what that message from Feedblitz meant, myself, when I got a note from them a few days ago. Now I know.

Trying to find an innovative and lucrative [B][URL=http://www.tiffanysfree.com]tiffany necklaces[/URL][/B] business? A business on sterling silver jewelries may just be the one you are [U][B]tiffany engagement rings[/U][/B] looking for. It's never that too difficult to find reasonably priced Tiffany wholesale jewelry to get you [U][B]pandora bangles[/U][/B] started on your way to being financially independent. The Internet is actually a good place [B]pandora bracelet[/B] to start. You virtually spend nothing to find the supplier you are seeking. No need to be technically knowledgeable to find [U]tiffany uk][/U] your valuable information, a simple understanding of how to operate the computer and use a reliable search [B]tiffany[/B] engine is all you need.

Once you find your tiffany wholesale supplier, your quest [U][B]pandora bracelet[/U][/B] doesn't end there. You need to understand jewelry selling basics and selecting the styles that are most appropriate [B]tiffany uk[/B] for your niche market as well as having the eye for designs that will [U]tiffany pendants][/U] most likely sell. You must also learn the tricks of finding out which jewelry pieces are [B]pandora jewelry[/B] of superior quality. There are an abundant source of suppliers for Tiffany wholesale jewelry, you just need [B][URL=http://www.pandoraforyou.com]pandora[/URL][/B] to have that discriminating taste in ensuring you get to the best source. In this business, if you start with low quality [U]tiffany jewellery][/U] pieces, your business will suffer.

In order for you to get customers to comeback you must be [B][URL=http://www.tiffanysfree.com]tiffany sets[/URL][/B] able to please them with the quality of your items as well as the attractiveness of your designs. Always find unique [U][B]tiffany london[/U][/B] and stylish designs, you wouldn't want to sell everybody else is selling. If your pieces are just ok and plain you may have difficulty [U][B]tiffany uk[/U][/B] keeping faithful customers. Aside from having quality merchandise you [U][B]pandora jewelry[/U][/B] also should be pricing them reasonably, not too expensive but not too cheap. Always make [B]tiffany uk[/B] your customers feel special in finding the best priced jewelries they [U][B]tiffany[/U][/B] can find.

A good plan is definitely in order, plunging head on [U]tiffany co][/U] into a business is like committing financial suicide. If you [B]pandora beads[/B] want your business to workout you need to sit down and make [U][B]tiffany[/U][/B] a list of what you need to do to achieve your main goal [U]tiffany pendants][/U] of being the vendor of choice. A supplier of good quality Tiffany wholesale jewelries [U]tiffany & co][/U] should top the list, after all you shouldn't start any business if your [U][B]pandora bangles[/U][/B] merchandise is not good at all.
