Stock up on all your supplies and take advantage of this great offer and don't forget we still have the last chance sale going on.  There are many items on sale that are marked down, some as much as 50%.

Here is a great card that uses the In Color Shimmer Vellum that is currently on the last chance sale.  I have loved using this vellum and am so sad to see it leaving.  It is so pretty and has the soft shimmer that adds just the right sparkle to your cards and projects.
