I used Stickles and sprinkled glitter on the cakes.
I visited Kelly Paper today. I can spend hours in that store. They have so many different types of cardstock. I've been to 3 different Kelly Paper stores, and all the employees are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They also have sample cardstock that you can take for free. I grabbed a bunch of their speciality paper samples - shiny papers, shimmery papers, etc. Thanks for visiting! Stay warm.

Here is the link to BH&G's coconut macaroon recipe. I melted milk chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzled over the macaroons. Enjoy!

I think Jim Brickman and weddings go hand-in-hand. And just because I'm thinking of weddings, here's "Beautiful" by Jim Brickman and Wayne Brady.

Recently, I've seen a lot of felt and velvet used on scrapbook pages and cards. For this card, I used Fun Flock to achieve a similar look and feel of velvet.

We went to the Alameda Antiques & Collectibles Faire this morning. Fun! We did a whole lot of walking. Vendors can only sell items that are 20 years old or older. Here are a few items I found.
Can't wait to use these! Over 25 yards of ribbon and lace for $6.50! One of the packages wasn't even open and it still had the original label on it, "16 yards for twenty-five cents".I found these glass jars, circa 1930's. The seller had a surplus of glass containers and was selling them at a really great price. I've been looking for clear glass containers to store some of my wood mounted stamps and small ink pads.

The only people to get even with are those who have helped you.-Anonymous

Here's a thank you card I'm sending out this week. All justjohanna stamps. Have a great week!
"How do you know if an angel has crossed your path? Sometimes you don't, because angels often appear as coincidences. That is, they seem like chance events, but they are really part of God's carefully orchestrated plan for your life."
-Gary Kinnaman, "Angels Dark and Light"
