And now we are wrapping up June ... wow.

Hello !
Well , here it is , the last week of June. Gosh. Hard to believe. Soon be fall (yay !!). Did I hear *BOOS* from the crowd ?! lol.
I am late posting this because I was waiting for some parcels to arrive so I could share the goodies. Well, I got one box late today and the others haven't arrived yet, so I better get to it . I'll post more when I get it unpacked !

CARD KIT of the WEEK :
This week's kit is colourful, cheerful, and celebratory ! You get the materials for all 3 cards as well as the HAPPY BIRTHDAY stamp ! And it is a super cute stamp. It can be used as is or can be coloured in - there are 2 little party hats & a candle included in the sentiment. It's fun to colour the hats to match whatever paper you are using it with - just use a marker or coloured pencil. It takes 2 seconds !
Anyway, you get the materials and the stamp for just $5. Leave a comment if you want any saved.

I also still have a few of the large kits for June left as well as various other weekly card kits. Leave a comment if there are any you are looking for !

Here's what I am putting together right now. They may be too simple to call them a kit ...;). I made them with 2 different sizes of crystal studded balls. They are fun, blingy, but still a little industrial with the gunmetal. I will post prices as soon as I get the supplies dug out of the box !!
Okay ... just bagged up the materials and they range from $4.19 to $5.65 a pair, depending on the size !

okay ... just made this pair ... love the sparkle !!
The materials are $4.69 and they take about 5 minutes to assemble !

* favourite stamps back in stock !

* 6x6 paper pads

* new Embossing folders

So drop in this week ! There will be more as I get it unpacked.
 Oh, and the Orange Ukulele will be here Thursday for lunch if you're hungry ! I highly recommend the Sweet Cheese !

Back by request. You get the materials for 3 cards - a dog card, a cat card, and a non-specific pet card. All have lovely messages of sympathy. All the materials for just $5.

Wedding/Anniversary Cards ...
These cards all use specialty papers and some fun accents. Scroll down to see the individual pictures.
Again, all the materials for 3 cards for just $5.
This is a really fun kit because of all the materials ... satin finish paper, transparency, sparkly glitter paper, rub ons, adhesive crystals, flowers, Peel Offs borders, seam binding ribbon, colour resist Mistables chipboard.
If you like the sparkly cards, I have them in packages. They are from David Tutera , a celebrity wedding planner. I have them in various styles - sparkly , pearlized, and various sizes and colours.

This card uses a beautiful satin striped cardstock and a colour resist butterfly that you can customize the colour. .

This card is a gorgeous sparkly iridescent paper.

This card makes use of a transparency as well as a border sticker and a rub on that comes with co-ordinating sticky backed bling.

And this has nothing to do with beads or scrapbooking ... or anything really. But I made this last night and it was super easy and quite good ... thought I would pass it along. Cake batter (devil's food!) cooked in a waffle iron ! Then add whipped cream, berries, and a nice sauce. Quick dessert !! Yum !
Have a great week and hope to see you !!
