I've just heard the news and I thought I should share it with all of you. TAC is having a huge sale. I've been with the company for 6 years and don't remember this ever happening before. Now, that doesn't mean that it hasn't happened. It just means that I don't remember it. For the exciting news, from January 6-26, ALL t coded stamps in our fall/winter catalogue are 1/2 price, 50% off. Holy Toledo!!! I will apologize now for anyone who gets a double reminder about this event from me. I can't hardly contain my excitement. There is no limit on this sale!!! I can hardly believe my eyes instead of ears (since I'm reading the info.)

On to my promised card and scrapbook postings, the following were made for my pal Roni's sister. You see, she wanted to get her something to inspire her craftiness and her sister also likes frogs. So, she decided on the hoppy everything set. This is what I came up with for the card. It's kind of cute and her sister is a newlywed. I guess it sort of fits.

Everything came from TAC except for the border punch. I believe the ink colors were belle rose and landscape. Both were palette inks. The printed paper came from the toodle loo collection and the cardstock is one of the pink dcwv collection. I used Barb's wonderful colorization technique. I also used mounting tape to raise the frogs. Then I doubled the mounting tape for the heart so that it sticks out even farther. Inside, it says 'toadally in love'.

Now, the scrapbook page isn't my favorite. However, I'm not that in love with frogs. So, I'm thinking that is the reason for my hang up with the page.

The only thing not TAC here is the mustard and green paper. It is bazzill. Again, I used the hoppy everything set with the noir palette ink. The blue cardstock is from the dcwv collection. Finally, the printed paper is from the hip hop collection. It is suppose to look like lily pads. I may have covered to much of it. Now, that I'm looking at it differently, I can see where I should have added more of it. Possibly under the green frogs. What do you think? I only glued the green strip along the edges so that the picture could be slid underneath. I also thought that you could either journal or put a title across the green strip.

Please check the updated specials at the bottom of the blog to see more of our January specials.

Have a safe and happy new year!!!
