Gold and Silver

Make new friends, but keep the old.  One is silver and the other gold.  Did you learn this little song as a child?  I can remember singing it in Girl Scouts as a round.  Silver and gold do go together amazingly well.  And they are oh-so-popular right now.

I came across a fantastic set of gold and silver papers from Lilly Ashley.  Then I used some assorted goodies I've had around.  Like the embossed chipboard butterflies that I picked up - yes, you guessed it - from the $1.00 bins at Mchaels!

These fun little banner pieces are the free stamps and punch  - Banner Blast - available right now at Stampin' Up.  For Sale-A-Bration you get free goodies with every $50 spent.  It's an awesome thing (not just a good thing)!  Several of you have already benefited - thank you for your orders and I know you're going to enjoy those envelope punch boards.  I have some more projects using it coming up soon.  See the Sale-A-Bration brochure here.  Banner Blast is on page 14.

Check out this really cool chevron tag.  It is from the Chalk Talk Framelit Set also from Stampin' Up.

Speaking of old and new friends - thank you to all of you who offered wonderful ideas for the Tall House stamp.   The ideas include: house warming gifts with restaurant or garden store gift cards, a Halloween Boo, and a village.  LOVE all these ideas.   All the Tall House stamps have been sold.  If you missed getting one for yourself, email me.  I'm planning on placing an order with Woodware this week. 

 My mom sent me an article all about how wonderful it feels to get a hand written note in the mail.  Apparently it feels way more special than email.  I should probably send these gold and silver cards off - one to a new friend and one to an old friend!

Have a wonderful week!
