it reminds me of the random scrap paper that we sometimes find, that has marks, and they were not intended to be anything other than testing the pen or brush, but, eventually, on its own, it evolved into something lovely.

it's OK. when i went over the purple Tombo with white gel pen, the white turned pink. i don't use Tombos very often, but had to pick some up to do a job. they are a brush marker and i was liking them...but, maybe they are not waterproof. i'll have to do some testing and let you know.

the cup is not part of the cake topper. the wires will be stuck directly into the cake. if you google *wire cake toppers* you will see lots of fun examples.

and i could keep nit-picking...
but, as i keep saying, i am into quantity, not quality.

great choice of stamps and beginners, note the way she put the heart stamp on-end. it looks so much better to have the three stamps all in portrait format. and the way the postmark is contributing to the overall design is really charming.

not sure why she plopped the letters in a puddle of water, but it is a great addition to the letters.
i know this is redundant....
but, once again, highly-steal-worthy.

this was a very early experimant with Tombo markers. i am happy to report that i eventually figured out some styles that i liked. i am ok with showing the clunkers so that you can see the improvement.

as always, jeri is very good at choosing colors in the stamps to use in the lettering.

nice shakespeare quote on the card inside :-)
the post office did not cancel the stamps. i don't know how that happens, but, i like to think they if the machine can't read it, and a postal worker has to look at it to make sure it is OK, they decide that it is just too pretty to add any cancellation...

and the other one (below) ?
i know i just colored them ten minutes ago.
i might have to rethink how i do these postings in the coming year
the level of chaos is starting to get to me.
for *color* i used highlighters
they come in sets of 8 colors from the office supply stores
inexpensive, but fun for envelopes
