Two things are making me tear my (already thin) hair out - the first is Stampin' Up! has decided to stop selling the Blendabilities alcohol markers. The manufacturer just couldn't meet SU's high standards consistently, so rather than have unhappy customers returning defective merchandise, they've been proactive and stopped selling it. They do realize how popular the alcohol markers are, so they are going to try to find a solution. I certainly hope so, because I love coloring with them!

The second follicle-threatening thing is I keep making cards and sending them before I remember to take a picture! (That's probably due to the fact that I'm frequently rushing to get them in the mail on time.) Poor planning on my part, but I'm going to TRY to be better about planning ahead!

This was one of the cards we made at my stamping team meeting last night. I try to show my downline cards that are cute, but don't take too long to make, especially if there are a lot of stampers making the card. People could get impatient waiting for the stamp and ink pad to came around, ya know?

So this was perfect for the project. The Love & Sympathy stamp is great for using the "marker to stamp" technique and, while the stamp set is geared toward sympathy cards, the image can be used for just about anything. And BONUS - the All Abloom DSP Stack is one of the weekly deals this week!
