(Quote Tag Dies)

(Glasses Dies, New Beginnings 2)

The words “apron” and “napkin” were originally “napron” and “apkin” but the preceding indefinite articles (“an” and “a”) were so confusing to the ear that the words eventually just changed.

I colored the stamped images with Copics and popped up the pinked circle with foam adhesive.
I hope you LOVE this new stamp set - I had a blast creating it :)

American founding father Benjamin Franklin thought the bald eagle was lazy and cowardly, and preferred other animals such as the turkey and rattlesnake to represent the United States of America.

In 1989, a bottle from Thomas Jefferson’s collection, was valued at an astronomical $500,000 by its owner, William Sokolin. When Sokolin took the wine with him to a Margaux dinner at the Four Season Hotel, a waiter knocked the bottle over, breaking it. Insurers paid out $225,000.

Our June Guest Designer Search ends tonight...winner will be announced tomorrow :)

(New Beginnings Icons Dies, Rose Frame Die)

Barb Engler created these super cool cards with our Triangles Die...
She used the die cut as a stencil and rubbed ink over the triangles.  
The look she achieved is awesome!!
(New Beginnings 2)

Barb water colored over the stencil that she created with the die cut.  WOW!

Italy is giving away more than 100 historic buildings – including castles, houses, and towers – in a bid to boost ‘slow tourism’ and tempt visitors away from the overcrowded city centers. To get your hands on the sites, you need to have a clear plan of how they’d be transformed into a tourist facility. Successful applicants will get the rights to the property for nine years, with the option to renew the contract for a further nine. And entrepreneurs with a proposal for turning the sites into a tourist facility could be given a 50-year lease in some cases.
