Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week


As soon as I saw this SIMPLE STRIPES EMBOSSING FOLDER in the Occasions Mini Catalog (page 5) I knew I wanted to try making a plaid design with it! I love when products can do more things than they are designed for - don't you?

I decided to combine it with a SNEAK PEEK at the most adorable stamp set ever....ANIMAL OUTING!!! This set will be available in the new catalog coming out June 1st - I received it at the OnStage Event in Milwaukee over the weekend - LUCKY ME RIGHT?

Here's a video showing you how I made plaid and argyle patterns with the SIMPLE STRIPES EMBOSSING FOLDER:

Do you love the plaid?


 This greeting is great for all occasion cards - I need a lot of those!

After digging to a depth of 10 feet last year outside Buffalo, New York, scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100 years. They came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a Los Angeles, California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Oceanside. Shortly afterward, a story in the LA Times read, "California archaeologists, reporting a finding of 200 year old copper cable, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers."
One week later, a local newspaper in Green Bay, Wisconsin reported, "After digging 30 feet deep in his pasture near the community of Sobieski, Wisconsin, Ole Olson, a heck of an engineer and a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Wisconsin had already gone wireless."
Just makes a person proud to be from Wisconsin!!!

Good joke . Kelly. Yes that is a gorgeous stamp set and the background embossing really sets the cards off. I think the giraffe is so cute but so is the kangaroo with koala, but hey that is from an Aussie perspective.TFS
