I don't have a card to show you today, but I did want to get a post up with some fun stuff for you to see.
First, you've read about the things I've been sending my summer sister, Lorie. Well, she has been sending me equally fabulous cards and gifts, but I tend to not post things like that on my blog. Don't ask me why not, there is no good reason. I just don't. But, I keep seeing happy mail on everyone else's blog (including hers!), and decided it was just silly not to share. So here is a picture of everything that was sent in my final envie from Lorie.
I am THRILLED to get Elvis stamps. OMG. You.Have.No.Idea. I luvvvv me some Elvis. Especially at Christmas time! I have my great-grandparents Elvis Christmas LP (yeah, we're talkin' VINYL here people!) and love listening to it. I also used to have a huge fluffy Elvis blanket that (I shouldn't even be telling you this).... hung on my bedroom wall for YEARS. I've been to Graceland, and I can't wait to go back. Yeah. You might say I'm a fan. I love the man, the music, the movies, you name it. Best Elvis movie? Live a Little, Love a Little. Hands down.
It's hard to see in the picture, but the bottom layer there is some acetate card bases. How cool is that? I really had no idea they even made them. I always just used SU's window sheets and folded them. I have a few primas in the picture - there was actually a huge container of them, but I couldn't fit it in. Then the gelly roll pen, post-it holder, gift card maker thingys (she might not know it yet, but I need instructions for those - lol!) and super cute Billy card. What a great gift, eh?! And do you see the sentiment on that post-it holder? It says, "You're the bee's knees". hee hee. I collect bees, and "The Bee's Knees" is also the name of my family blog. ;o)
Next, I want to show you this....
I received a number of comments about the ribbon I used on yesterday's card. Some people asked where I bought it, and the answer is Hobby Lobby. I thought I'd show you a picture of the spool in case you wanted to find some for yourself. :)
And finally, I've been tagged by my blogger (and Bella) friend Cheri. Although I've given up on the tagging part of these, I love to play along and answer the questions (kinda like those getting to know you emails that I can't seem to ever get enough of), so here's a little more info on me than you probably ever cared to know (LOL!):
