Brief Notes: Happy Father's Day

 This is one of the cards that A Muse Studio designed for us to use in workshops. There are lots of preplanned workshops, most of which use only the supplies from the starter kit, so it is so easy to hit the ground running with an a|s business.
The set I used, called Brief Notes, also contains a cell phone, a lap top and a briefcase, in addition to 10 sentiments. It has 14 stamps, and sells for $21.99.

I just got back from a trip to Denver. My sister and I did a craft fair at Elizabeth and it was a dismal failure, to say the least! At least the company was good! Then on Saturday we went to a couple of Goodwills. They were having a 50% off sale. I got some folder holders and a three hole punch for my classroom, some vintage seam binding, a few t-shirts for the 7yo, and a very cool heavy planter. I'm going to put a collection of succulents I bought a couple of weeks ago in it. I think they will be happy in it, and look beautiful. I also got a DVD rack to store my a|s stamp sets. It's kind of a verdigris right now, but I plan to spray paint it antique white.

Do you go to the Goodwill? Have you gotten any great deals there? We saw a Slice for $10, still in the box, but neither of us are interested in getting into ANOTHER die cutting system, so we left it behind. Can you believe our restraint?


  1. This is a great card, Carla ~ I haven't checked out all of the RTRWs yet!

    And I have never shopped at Goodwill but may just be rethinking that after your post ~ yikes, you did great! My daughter has always wanted to check it out so maybe I'll give in sometime.

  2. Love the clean, crisp design and colors. I have this set. Ir makes the best guy cards. It's been a while since I used it! Thanks for the inspiration.

    I haven't been to a Goodwill Store, except to drop off donations. Next time I definitely will have to stop in.


Thank you so much for taking time to drop me a line!
