Happy Saturday!

I thought I would share a couple of other things with you on this beautiful Saturday morning. I can't believe we've been getting this much sunshine in Southeast Alaska! It's amazing!!

This card was inspired by an idea I saw in the May Cards magazine. When I was in Arizona I purchased one of the Martha Stewart butterfly punches. I think they are so cute! This is another one of my 'mail friendly' cards.

Oohhhh...and here's some fun, colorful Heather Bailey fabric I purchased from this etsy shop. It was my first time purchasing something through etsy. It was easy and fast! I really really want to create some fabric scrapbook pages. I am looking to buy some unprimed canvas, but I haven't a clue about it or where to purchase. I asked Donna Downey about it, but I'm not sure if she ever saw my question. She's pretty busy! I recently read through her Step-by-step Projects Fabric Scrapbooking book and it's amazing! It was just the inspiration and help I needed to get started. Now I just need to get started.

Ohh I'm so jealous!! you got some Heather Bailey fabric!! haha! I have been drooling over her stuff for a LONG time now! I am yet to be able to get any, but I have wanted to do so many fun things with her bright and cheery fabric! I really like that card too! I know what you mean about "mail friendly" although I recently mailed some that I thought for sure would need extra postage but I guess they didn't.

Oh I'm so glad that you are going to start fabric scrapbooking. I love Donna, but I've never made the plunge myself. Can't wait to see what you do!

Cute fabric!! Good luck with the pages. You're much braver than I (then again, I think most people could be).

I think you stole our sunshine! It's been cool and cloudy here since Tuesday. I'm definately ready for some hot summer sun.

I think a cruise may be in order. Would love to meet you, too.

Your fabric is fabulous! I picked up canvas at my local fabric store. I'm not sure if that's the 'right' kind, but I did take Donna's black damask fabric book class and compared the fabrics and they're similar. So, try your local fabric store like, JoAnns or Hancock.

I enjoy working with fabric since taking Donna's class and I hope you do too!
