Brief post, only one card

Hello, I only have one card to show you. I will post the rest when I get finished. Here it is:
this card I am submitting for a swap in one of my yahoo groups called swapping with Disney.


1 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of current sensation cardstock. 1 12x12 sheet of Heidi Grace paper (Tip: you can make 6 cards out of a sheet of 12x12 sheet to fit a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card. (tip #2: write it down if you want someone to duplicate the exact paper you used. it also helps if you are going to sell your cards on Etsy, E-Willow, Ebay or any or the auction and selling sites) Cricut cartridge, Storybook (my fav). the instructions for the madalion are : (for the shadow background-Accent/Blackout button, press shift, then letter k). For the madalion itself: Accent Frame button, press shift, then letter K). I used Berry sensation for the background, and strawberry Splash cardstocks. Flower is from the Hot Spot bin at Archivers, as well as all of the paper stuff. The ribbon (which is a 1/8 inch (3 mm) red ribbon by offray. ) I think i got it from michaels at some point in time. the sentiment is left blank on the inside, while the front simply says "Happy Birthday." I tried to find something a little more, but nothing says simple like Happy Birthday. This is for a female, but you can easily turn it into a v-day card (valentine's day is coming up, in case there are any guys browsing this blog). One thing I love about cards, are you can always change up the program. follow this same sketch (or recipe I like to call them), you can make it blue for a boy/male birthday, change the background paper, or whatever hits the mood.
It has been a while but for those of you who are new to my blog, or have not read it n a while, there is a cheater's trick I learned from the Pink Stamper, Robyn (forgot her last name, sorry Robyn. ) Anyway, her blog logo is somwhere to the right of this entry, and she has some really good tips and other things. She is also on You tube ( Anyway, she uses tape to glue down her ribbon to the back of the mat on the card. just plain old Scotch tape. After you tape down both sides, you can adhere the mat to the card blank. for an added touch, snip off a piece of same color ribbon to tie a fake bow onto the ribbon itself, and it looks wonderful. another fake tip: if you have the good printer paper, use it to print your sentiment.

Lots are going on at the big basket, and new products are coming soon. I am sworn to secretsy on what they are, because I really do not know. I was shown some pictures, and that is it. All I can give you is the following specials for the month of January and this week, and that is it.

First off, for the month of January, Longaberger has the More you Buy the More you save sale. This sale depends on how much you purchase. You can save 20%, 30%, or 40% . if you have some christmas cash left over, now is your chance to take advantage of these specials. Next, do you feel a wee bit Irish? Well even if you do not, you will hve a little luck with this basket that is shaped like a little leprechaun's hat, and is cute as a little button. it is two toned green, and the lid is engraved with an Irish Blessing.

Online specials this week:

Last but not least, did you know that 25,000 people start with a direct selling business each year, and Longaberger Home consultants sell 4 times the direct selling industry average each year. so, isn't time you start you own Longaberger business and start making money off your love for the products. give yourself a raise today. If you want to start you own business with longaberger, have a home show, or just simply order some products, let me know by emailing me at or simply go to In fact, if you order then more your share of product for yourself, you can turn that into a home show if it is $150 or more in product. If you order more than $500, I might suggest that you become a Longaberger home consultant, where you get the benefits of a home consultant, including My Dream points. great way to start off the new year.

In case I have not said it, happy new year 2010. May all your hopes and dreams of 2009, become a reality in 2010. May God truly bless you, and I hope and pray you have peace, everlasting joy, and do not sweat the small stuff. Be patient in all that you do, and give glory to He, the one that sustains you. to Jesus Christ, Lord and savior, who is my savior. Amen.
