What is my part in all of this? What will I contribute? What will I do to earn a place in Tampa? I'll be doing the fourth event -- praying!
See ya' when I get back!
Here are some facts about the 1500s:
Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May,and they still smelled pretty good by June. However, since they were starting to smell,brides carried a “bouquet of flowers” to hide the body odor.
Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married.
Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water!"

Now I'm hooked, obsessed with getting more and more. Making a list. Checking off new ones. As a fellow crafter/cardmaker, you know what I'm talking about. Perhaps you're just like me.
My name is Susan and I'm a Copicaholic.

I think of something I read a while back that was written to make you look at things differently.
A woman was on her way to work and spilled coffee all over suit just as she was arriving at her office. She was angry, but knew she had to go back home and change, which she did. She never went back to work.
She worked at the Twin Towers in New York City and the date was September 11th.

My new set of cards that I just put in my etsy shop feature my fave four -- Sleeping Beauty (#1), Tinkerbell, Snow White, and Ariel. The cards are note size and are blank inside, which makes them perfect for birthdays or just a special card to send to your own special princess

* Cut rectangular piece of card stock (not in the form of a card, just flat), 5 x 6.5 in size.
* Cut a coordinating piece of pattern paper just a little bit smaller (4.5 x 6) and layer it on top.
* Cut a smaller piece of patterned paper (coordinating pattern or lightweight cardstock) and fold it it in half. Cut 6 x 4.5 piece to fold into 3 x 4.5 small card.
* Stamp sentiment on inside of "flap", adhere to front of card and embellish.
There you have it -- a flap card! (I really need to get a better name for these -- can anybody make a suggestion?)

She hails from Baton Rouge LA and has a fantastic talent in cardmaking. I love her style and the way she designs. The result is nothing short of beautiful! Please check out some of her designs on her blog. She participates in quite a few craft fairs and they're usually listed on her blog. You really should see them in person!
Thanks, dear friend!

really promote my own stuff enough. I'm really proud of my cards and I guess I really should show them off more.
This group of cards are 5 x 6.5 and are single digital designs with a simple message inside and out. I love the big, bright images! All of the images seen here are from Etsy digital designers and others: Sailboat - MarloDee Designs
Bee - Jessical Weible
Ladybug and Flower - Gingerworld
Frog Prince - Maree Truelove
I'm going to do better in future so check back often for other works or visit my etsy shop at ladybuglaneandco.etsy.com
