Braid Technique and New Weekly Deals

Hi there!  Have you ever seen the braid technique?  This technique has been around a long time.  In fact, I did it YEARS ago when I first got into stamping.  It may have been called something else back then.  It's an easy technique (even though it looks complicated) with a lot of WOW factor.  The Hostess Club girls tried their hand at this technique at our meeting this past Saturday.  Brandy Cox has a video (and a template you can download) showing how this technique is done.  If you're a visual learner like I am, the video will be helpful.  Click here to watch Brandy's You Tube video.  When you have time, watch all of her videos.  She has great ideas!  The Club card used the same layout but with different colors and stamps.  I dusted off my Gifts of Kindness set, which was paired with Blackberry Bliss cardstock and ink (Stampin' Up!s 2014-16 In Colors) - and used Brandy's unique ribbon embellishment.  Love that look!

Yesterday wasn't a very productive day due to the fact that the granddog wanted my undivided attention!  LOL  Oh my, what an attention HOG!  I miss him, though.  He was so excited to see his "mommy" and "daddy" when we picked them up at the airport last night. 
Must get busy.  Thank you so much for coming by for a visit today!
