First of all I must say THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR 'ROYAL BLOG TOUR' COMMENTS!  I can't tell you how wonderful — and talented — they all made me feel.  I'm glad so many of you loved the stamp set, Greenhouse Garden, that I used.  I was serious when I told you it was my 4th choice.  It seemed like it would be so much work with all of those individual flowers.  But it turned out, instead, to be so much fun.  It was fun seeing how each card evolved and then which card some liked best, as opposed to which card/s others liked best.  Many of your comments will be getting comments back from me because of questions asked or because of something in your comment that required a response.  It might be a day or two though.

Those of you who are demos and requested the Magazine File template and instructions: I will send them hopefully today.*  With guests arriving 'sometime' in the afternoon, I'm not sure when I'll get interrupted in all my to-do tasks.  Someone who's not a demo requested these instructions as well.  You'll be getting them too.  🙂

Now, who will be receiving my freshly made Magazine File plus 8 handmade cards w/envelopes????  Well, it's


Congratulations Katie.  I will email you privately for your mailing address or go ahead and email it to me.  I used www.Random.org to randomly select Katie's number.

For those of you who didn't win, you're all still winners if you're willing to put out a little effort.  I'm going to link you to the instructions for the Magazine File so you can make as many as you want!  I really love making and sharing this card holder and I want you to be able to WOW your friends with a lovely gift or desk accessory.  So, please click on this link and it'll take you back a few months to my first experience making these files.  There is a photo tutorial that will walk you through the process.  I also have a Word Doc that has a diagram which I just could not figure out how to create and post back in March.  Actually I still can't figure out how to post a pdf.  (True confessions!)  If you email me (button above in left sidebar) I will send it as an attachment.  

*The link above is exactly the one I would be sending the Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who left comments on my blog and requested the instructions.  So, click on the link above and you'll be good to go.  And ask and I'll send the Word Doc diagram.

Thank you all for visiting My Country Loft Blog during the last three days.  (My Country Loft, by the way, is the room over our garage—used to be a bedroom for boy and friends who played guitar too loud for Mom and Dad.  Boy went to college, graduated and eventually got married–Mom got a stamp room!!!)  I'll be back tomorrow to show you some ROCK 'n' ROLL.

Take care………



    1. Thank you Barbara! How’d you get way over to 2009 by the way? I’ve heard that some people are directed ‘here’ and others ‘there’ and I don’t know how that’s working. Learn learn learn. Neat to hear from you! 🙂
