What a Week!

I am sorry I didn't get to complete my 12 days of Christmas...last Friday evening we got our snow I was talking about...9 inches!!! Our electricity went out during the night Friday night and didn't return until late evening on the 23rd. We have had a very different Christmas here, for sure. I will be posting more artwork soon, I am setting up a different computer and as soon as I'm settled with that, I will add more artwork. Thanks for your patience! Hope that everyone had a very blessed Christmas and will have a wonderful New Year!

On the Second Day of Christmas...

This is a Christmas Tree that a lady hired me to decorate for her. She wanted a UK tree because she is a big UK Wildcat Fan. I apologize for the lack of professional photo quality, but these were taken outside on the hood of our car just before delivery! LOL! Each of the ornaments I stamped and handmade. (Except the glass balls, of course.) I hope you get inspired to make handmade ornaments for your tree!

April Stamp of the Month

The April Stamp of the Month is one for those fishing, DAD, and male layouts and cards. The set features a whimsical canoe with fish and words. Contact me if you are interested in purchasing this set in April.

March Stamp of the Month

The March Stamp of the Month features dainty, fluttering butterflies with artistic flourishes and loving words. This set is only available during the month of March and could be possibly never available again after that. You could purchase this set at a discount or even FREE! Contact me for details.

February Stamp of the Month

The February Stamp of the Month shows the image in the shape of an egg. But this set has much more possibility than eggs. Each egg is patterned with a background image. You can stamp beautiful patterns on your background paper or on your chipboard as you see in the border of the "love" card above and the letters on the "blinked" layout about. The "eggs" also make gorgeous flower petals. Just stamp in a circular pattern and add a center. The edges stamped together along the side of your paper also make beautiful scallops. As with all stamp of the month sets, this set is available during the month of February only and may never be available again. You can purchase this set at a discount or possibly even earn it FREE! Contact me for details.
