Another H--turned into a Card Kit

I had so much fun playing with my new Hello Again Stamp set in color markers that I ended up with four beautiful matching cards. So I decided to offer them to you as a card kit. If you would like the material to make this kit (directions,precut cardstock,accessories,and envelopes for 8 cards) please contact me by August 31st. Cost is $15 plus $5 shipping
You will need:
Hello Again stamp set
Retro Wheel and Handle
In Color Markers

This is one of my favorite cards of the set. I used the markers to color directly on the wheel, it takes a little time, but you don't have to be perfect and it creates this beautiful multi-colored image!

I'm back

I'm getting back into the swing of things this week, and that includes posting to my blog. I have done some stamping the past week and I'm excited to share some of the projects. Last Monday I received a box of new goodies from the upcoming mini catalog. and I've started to play with them a little. The card in the picture was made on my quest to go through my stamps sets alphabetically and use each one. I'm still working on the H's. This stamp set is Heard from the Heart. It has four great sentiments that can be paired with flowers and other embellishments. I used the pretties kit to dress this card up.

I just wanted to let you know that I won't be posting any this week. My father passed away on Saturday.

Thank you so much for your support. So many of my stamping friends have sent me emails and cards over the last year, and have been so understanding when I had to change or cancel classes due to my dad's chemo schedule.

Stamping has been and continues to be a great therapy for me so I look forward to stamping with all of you again very soon.

I'm sorry I haven't posted. My dad has taken a turn for the worse. Last week he fell at his house and we made arrangements for him to move in with us. He's continually getting weaker and is need of 24 hour care. I'm still going to try to find some time to stamp and post but I'm sure it won't be as often. Thank you for you understanding. Below you will find info on the August promotion. If you spend $35 in the growing up section of the catalog you get a FREE set of buttons! There is also a really cool wall decor growth chart that is only available this month. To learn more about these great deals click on the picture. It will direct you my online store where you can see the promotions and place your order.
