So much happening yesterday including a massive outage at Typepad, my blogging platform, which has been hitting on and off over the last four days.  I’m so sorry that you couldn’t access my blog (and most other Typepad blogs worldwide).  I have diligently posted each day, optimistic that Typepad would resolve the issues and my posts and projects would reach you.   It’s frustrating, but one of those things outside my control.  I have yet to go to bed at the time I write this update, trying to find ways throughout last night and today to help my customers with the new promotions and share my card until things resolve.  Typepad appears to be working again but I’m cautiously optimistic.  Thank you to those of you who still found ways to place your orders through me yesterday (especially with the Free Shipping offer and new Retiring Lists–both below) or alert me to the fact that the blog could not be accessed!

NEW STAMPIN’ PRETTY FULL POST EMAIL DELIVERY! You’ll also note that I’m delivering the entire post to your inbox (for those who subscribe by email) rather than an excerpt for the first time ever!  If you saw the post yesterday (very few did) it may feel a little bit like the movie “Ground Hog’s Day!”  However, let’s hope this is the beginning of fresh and stronger start for Typepad and will feel like new a new post to those of you who missed it.

  • Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper provides a hip and colorful background.  Frankly, I had a hard time deciding on a pattern because they all looked great on this card!
  • I used a small circle punch (part of the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack–it’s on the retiring accessories list!) to create little notches for the Silver Baker’s Twine.
