Hi Y'all,
I know I don't post often...but when I do I try to make it something special. This time it is a biggie!

As some of you may know the Sizzix 3D Flowers have been out of stock for quite a while....Well quote Carol..."Yippie Skippy !" They are back in and due to arrive any day now...BUT!!!! They are allocating every retailer and the dies will be very hard to get. I have already wait listed half of what we were allotted so if you want one of these  wonderful dies please email us and I will add you to the waitlist  and you will be guaranteed to get one.

I have been playing with different materials to cut these flowers. For Carol's latest challenge...the "Going Green"...I used an old pair of blue jeans my friend's kids were throwing out. Little girl's jeans have the cutest embellishments...I have just discovered....and my head is spinning with ideas. Anyway ...I cut the flowers from the denim and brushed them with watered down Modge Podge and then edged with some Stickles...then I rolled them up....I think they turned out great!

I hope to get my project finished over the weekend and get it posted. I can't wait to see what some of you have come up with. I loved what Carol did and then Steph really got me thinking. I always see treasure in trash...and apparently you all do too! Come on ladies.....let's see what treasures you can pull out of  the bottom of a closet or a junk drawer.

I hope you all have a happy relaxing Father's Day. I know I am fixing my dad his favorite dinner...grilled tri-tip, baked potato and fresh green beans....nothing fancy but so yummy!

TTFN,  Barrie
