More goodies

So I am very happy with the folks at Scrapbook City in BC. Herb and Lynn Smith do an awesome job with their online shopping service. I love using my cuttlebug and Michael's and Walmart just are not keeping up with the new folders and die cuts available for the little machine. I found Scrapbook City and love keeping my business here in Canada. They are just dolls and always put in a little something extra with the order. They will definitely be keeping MY business.

I had ONCE placed an order with a company in the U.S. which will remain nameless and that particular company won't be getting my business because of what they put on the customs declaration for the order. My good conscience just can't let me do business with them again.

Anyway, I could rave on and on about Scrapbook city because they are definitely a delightful company with which to do business. I'm looking forward to receiving my third order in as many weeks very shortly!

Looking forward to the long weekend so I can get to use all these new goodies!

Cricut Design Software

Now we are cookin'!

The laptop is ready and the Cricut Design Software has been successfully transferred from the desktop. I must say I was pleasantly surprised after reading all the nasty comments about how difficult people were finding it to transfer their software. No problem for me. I knew I had to have both computers up as the helpdesk would want me to uninstall from the desktop before giving me a new authorization code. I think it helps that I work in tech to begin with.....

The Beige Masculine Card

As Dorothy pointed out to me when I gave her a set of these cards, this one could be masculine or feminine. I think it is better suited to a guy myself, even if it does have ribbon!

Masculine Blue Birthday

Masculine cards. They can be so difficult. This is a simple one using blues and purples and a very simple sentiment. No foo foo ribbons or flowers!
This was one of the cards in the sets I have given, or will be giving, away.

The Friendship card.

So this was the original Friendship card from the sets I am giving away. Since the first four were made I have since changed the ink used for the flower. I went from Vanilla to Colonial White and I must say I am much happier with the way it looks. All ink and stamps from CTMH.

The Goodies are arriving and cards are being made!

I was delighted on Thursday to get some of the goodies I have on the way. My August CTMH order arrived and was put to use that very night to do the finishing touches on a friend's birthday card envelope.

Friday saw the arrival of a new wireless optical mouse. Now I'm just waiting on the laptop to arrive and my craft room will be jumping into the tech age. Seriously, how sad is it that I have bought a laptop for the express purpose of connecting my Cricut machines to it when I could go in to the next room and use the desktop? Well, Doug has promised me he will "pimp out" my mouse as it currently doesn't match the laptop. Mouse is red, laptop is espresso.

Today -- ahhhh that was reserved for card-making. I have given away the two completed sets of cards and have started working on copies for more gift-giving. Three styles were made today, six of each. I'm beginning to think I need stock in Scotch brand glue runners.
