Do You Have a Favorite?


We all have favorites.  Regardless of what we are talking about, there are favorites in our lives.  We have favorite restaurants, products, and stores for example.  Why is very personal.  However, one of the reasons we return to that favorite is it means our needs.  Where we get that product or service depends on the response we receive.  If it is positive we will return, if not we will try another place.

I recently ordered some faces I needed for a project.  The size was in question so the person sent her husband to the store to get a bowl to checkout size.  I gave her an outstanding review because she went the extra mile.   I will return to her when I need more faces.  That kind of service means a lot to me.  I do the same here and at my Etsy shop.  I found a special card for a customer that was not on Etsy.  She was thrilled. I received a great review, but that was not the reason I did it. I did it because I value each customer as a person.


Oh, you are wondering about that project.  Here it is and no it is not a Stampin’ Up! material, but I think it is adorable.

However, I do have a favorite because it just brings a smile to my face. It is Stampin’ Up! Elfie Stamp Set.  Those elves are simply adorable and will bring a smile to your face.

Notice today’s card is layered.  When you layer the card with a background of some type.  You can interest, but it can’t just be a piece of another color cardstock.  You need a pattern or texture of some kind.  Using the Buffalo Check is an example of a background.  Adding a piece of cardstock embossed will add texture. You don’t want any to be too distracting for your image.  For this card, I added the Swirl and Curl Embossing Folder. Notice the cardstock I chose is the same color in the image.
