2. Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks/Tim Holtz Distress Re-Inkers(only a couple drops...)
3. Ranger Perfect Pearls or some other imitation
4. Mini Mister (Tims or a $1.00 shop one)Tim YOU didn't hear me say that!!!(plus it is next to impossible to get your stuff in Australia...)
Heaps cheaper than all the other misters plus YOU make it as perfect pearly misty as u want it and as colored as you want!!! for 5% of the cost...trust me I know!!!
I just did these in 2 minutes but the lighting doesn't do the picture justice...double click to see a better picture
THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS....

Go and check out her blog... She has just the cutest card ideas and is an independent stampin up demonstrator & is on the design team for Magnolia Down Under. She has amazing stamping ideas...YUM YUM!!!!Thanks again for the blog candy Tracey! xx Melissa
I was totally inspired by the Ad as I have just moved here from the USA. That day I received a thank you letter from Holly for some baby gift books I had made for her. I thought with all the technology(facebook, email, blackberrys, Blogs, phones) we have nowadays, rarely do we get letters or cards by POST & to top if off now I live thousands of km away from my friends in Texas...it always seems like such a nice and thoughtful surprise and it "REALLY DOES TOUCH ME WHEN I RECEIVE A LETTER IN THE MAIL"... And just a few months prior I received a gorgeous package in the mail from my dear friend Sandee...Thank YOU girls...Love you both!!!I used a clear vellum printed with "friendship blooms in loving hearts". The picture is of a very dear friend of mine in Texas, USA and I used the title 13192 km from USA as that is how far we are from each other...I miss you Holly!

It's NEW & it's DIFFERENT...inspiration from Ads and the first one really touched me, as it was an Ad on the Australian POST..."If you really want to touch someone, send them a letter" and that DAY, I got a card from a special friend of mine from the USA. With blogging, twitter, facebook, myspace, email, iPhones, Blackberries, you rarely get something in the mail anymore, so when I did, I was so happy!!! Can't wait to do the challenge.
