Terrific Thursday!

OMG! What a gorgeous day! Thank goodness for WiFi. I can sit outside  and type this entry or I could 'forget' and go outside and do something else altogether. I am REALLY tempted...but I've got some really cool new stuff to show you that I'm anxious to share. Here we go...

Blue Fern Studios - what beautiful papers! As a bonus, we have stamp sets and beautiful chipboard die cuts embellishments that coordinate. 

Here are the stamps, but they are just about gone!

Here are some of the die cuts - I love these!

Lil' Inker, a new stamp and die company for us, has backgrounds, words, shapes and more plus stamp sets to go with them

New Pink Ink summer stamps

Sharon will be doing a class using one of these stamps 3-ways in our May-June class session. 

These Mini Prills are great for shaker cards and to add texture to your multi-medium projects. 

More new craft paper, see a theme here, Bud?

Sizzix has dies to make these great little distressed look flowers. There are 15, count'em 15 dies in the pack!

Look what also came in and left...

Tuesday, the new Distressed Ink color, Fossilized Amber, came in and by noon today, Thursday, this is what's left. We also have been having some concerns over our monthly ordering, payment and discount card process. This month's color came in very late. First, we have no control over when Ranger ships. Second, we put our order in to Ranger as soon as their ordering system lets us. We have encouraged you to pre-order the monthly color in the applications you want and strongly suggest you pre-pay especially if you are using the green card to get the discount at the end of the year. With summer coming on and all the activities, events, vacations and everything we all have going on, this is truly your best option. Some have mentioned how exceptions were made the first few months but now that we can see a pattern forming with Ranger announcing the new color the second week or so of the month and then not shipping till very close to the end of the month; we want to re-emphasize the pre-pay option. Our intent with the option of pre-ordering and pre-paying was to guarantee you'd get your choices as soon as we got the product in AND to guarantee you'd get the max credit for the end of the year.  That said, I wonder what the next color will be? I'm guessing a lavender/purple, what do you think?

Right before I left today we got a small but very heavy box from Lil B. Here is a preview, not even out of the box yet! 
Have an awesome, warm, sunny and delightful weekend. I'll see you all next week!
