Friendship

Tonight I gave right-angle-punching a try... to form a medallion. I found the video tutorial on Becca Feeken's blog, Amazing Paper Grace under yesterday's date... it really opens up the possibilites with those corner punches!

I've been a bit blog-lazy lately but I've been busy learning a bit about Etsy and listing some cards to sell on-line. Have any of you tried this and had any success? I've inserted the link on the top right corner of my blog. It should be interesting to see how it goes. Knock on wood anyway (rubber mounted on wood block that is... lol).

Stamps: Quietfire Designs Paper: Whisper White, Jillibean Soup, Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery Accessories: grosgrain ribbon, dew drops, adhesive pearls Tools: sewing machine, Spellbinder dies, Martha Stewart punches & SU! square punch Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black & Cool Carribean (sponged around sentiment).

Congratulations on opening your Etsy shop! Your cards are exquisite and so reasonably priced too! I applaud you. The card you've posted on your blog today with those lovely medallions is fantastic. You really nailed those punched medallions! I love the little open book spellbinders die cut too.

Carla, again, this card is stunning!!!

Hey, I'll be down your way-ish this summer. Family reunion in Guelph, taking my kids to the Falls, staying in Ottawa, going to Quebec City, then to a week of relaxing on a lake just outside Peterborough.

Congrats on the ESTY store!!!
