Step 1 Place 3/4" dot stickers from the office supply store on the bottom of your paper. Be careful to line them up so they don't overlap and they just barely touch the bottom.
Step 2. Cut off the paper under the dots. Then peel off stickers and decorate your card.
This is my finished card. Paper: Paper Bouquet in sky/cloud
Stamp: Elegant "Thank You" from Rubber Stampede
Tan Prima flower
Light Blue flower: Target
Brad: Making Memories
Double Faced 7/8" satin brown ribbon

I got a hot tip today from Sarah on her blog, Kindred Spirits. She learned from another blogger about Windows Live Writer. It's an easy way to update your blog. You can download it here for free. So, this post is an experiment using my new toy: Windows Live Writer. My favorite feature so far is that it does spell check as you go. And, I like that I don't have to have everything in a bunch of different windows that I have to bounce to and from. Check it out.

I have been thinking about primary colors lately. And, I love Polish pottery so this is my tribute to both. I don't know who makes the image but I colored it with my Marvey markers. The paper is by the Paper Studio and the ribbon was a Hobby Lobby buy. I got a little crazy with some doodles around the image border after my mum told me that my card "needed a little something". This card is 4.25" x 5.5".

I bought this paper in Paris, France at a scrapbook store called Pariscrap. It is from DDDesigns77. It has French fashion words and images on one side and polka dots on the other. The stamp is from Sunday International. I added a black feather from a feather boa I had laying around the house and a button in the left corner. This is my interpretation of sketch number 16 on the Sketch This Cards blog. The card is 5" x 7".

I've been swapping cards and tags for about 3 years now. I started at Papercrafts Magazine and now I'm mostly at the Stamp Shack. I have a tough time parting with the cards and tags that I've accumulated over the years so I have a huge collection. The first picture is the 194 cards I've collected and the second picture shows the 140 tags and ATC's in my collection. I have used some and a month ago I gave away 40 cards to some missionaries so they could write home. Other than that, I keep them stored in my card drawer. Do you hoard your cards too? If yes, how do you store them? If not, how do you part with them?
