Sad to see it go....

DSCN6759

I'm sad to see this stamp set retiring...TOO KIND.  I love the two set stamping with the flowers - so many possibilities!  Here's a card I made that uses a masking technique.  I took large post-it notes to frame the rectangle and sponged my colors in.  Isn't it pretty?  To guarantee availability of this set - order by May 26th.

Fresh from the FARM

DSCN7052

I think this stamp set is just HILARIOUS!!!!  I love the BUGGED OUT eyes on this herd of characters!  This is a card that was shared at my last Demonstrator Meeting - we always share tons of cards with fabulous ideas.

The JUST SAYIN' and WORD BUBBLE FRAMELITS (shown in the product list below) are retiring - OH NO!!!!  I sure hope that the FROM THE HERD stamp set makes it into the Big Catalog!  Or it will be retiring on June 2nd too!!!

This is one of my favorite kits in the Occasions Mini Catalog!!!!  I just LOVE it!  The Hello Life Project Kit makes an amazing gift for anyone!!!  I'm making one for my stamping studio - and I love that I can change out the photos to keep it fresh.

What a GREAT kit to give as a gift - I think teenagers would LOVE this!!!
