Stamp Day - Sunday Feb. 22

Need to have some cards on hand for birthdays, anniversaries, thank you's, etc? Well, have I got a deal for you!!!

On Sunday, February 22, 2009 at my house, we will be making 10 cards for $15. Not creative? No worries - I will have 5 cards designed and cut for you to stamp (following a sample of course...) and you will get to make 2 of each design!

Want to attend? All you need to do is RSVP by Thursday, February 19 and you will have a spot!

Can't come but want the cards? You can get together 3 of your friends and I will come to your house, or you can all come to mine on a mutually agreed upon day. If you have 3 people who have never attended one of my events, you will even get a special gift!

Don't have any friends? (just kidding...) You can still get the cards - I will make them for you and the fee goes to just $25 and you will get 10 cards and envelopes all stamped and ready for you to use! Payment is due prior to the cards being made.

If you come to stamp and bring a $50 order, there will be no fee for the cards you made, as well as you will get FREE shipping on your order, and with a $75 order you also get a free catalog! (Valid through Sara Kobe only)

PLUS, Sale-A-Bration starts on February 1, so for every $50 you spend you will ALSO get your choice of a free Sale-A-Bration stamp set - or this year there is also ribbon and Designer Series Paper!!

Please view the catalog(s) on the side bar and let me know your order!!

Hope to see you on the 22nd!

Wow, that is a lot going on!!!

Good day everyone! I haven't been stamping a lot lately, but I am working on it. In fact, I have joined some swaps so will be stamping a lot in the coming days trying to get everything ready and out the door for them! LOL!!

I stamped yesterday with a friend, it felt good to get the rubbah back in my hands!!

The first card uses some retired products, and it is a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from a swap I received a LLLLOOOONNNGGGG time ago... I really like this card because with the greeting of "Heartfelt" you can really use it for anything, Heartfelt Thanks, Heartfelt Birthday wishes, Heartfelt sympathy....

Stamp sets: Heartfelt Thanks, Print Pattern (retired)
Paper: Mellow Moss, Pale Plum, Pefect Plum, Very Vanilla
Ink: Perfect Plum, Mellow Moss
Accessories: Ribbon Originals Sherbet (retired)

And since it has been a full week since I have posted, here is a *bonus* card for you all. Again, it was inspired by a swap card, but the set was retired and I didn't have it anylonger, as well as were the colors, so I changed it up a bit....

Stamp sets: Holiday Blitz (cupcake and present), Party Hearty (candle), Hugs & Wishes
Paper: Certainly Celery, Baja Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Certainly Celery, Baja Blue, Apricot Appeal
Accessories: Celery Grosgrain

Well, I had better get back to stamping, but wanted to share these cards with you.

Happy Stamping!!

Well today I thought I would take some pictures of all of our snow....there is a lot. It has been a very cold January here in Iowa. We have had lots and lots of wind, so the snow blows around a lot! Here are some pictures of what the snow pile looks like in front of my house....

That is my oldest son in this picture....he is 48 inches tall, so the pile of snow is QUITE large....

This is my husband's truck and it is parked on the far south side of our lot. Since there are only 5 houses on my street and we are the only house on our side of the street, the lovely county plows all the snow to our side....I think it will be a while before we get the truck out!! LOL!!

Tomorrow is MLK Day and I have the day I am hoping to get some stamping done since the boys will both be in school. Hope to share more tomorrow!!

Well, I finally did it....Welcome to my new blog!! I am not sure how often I will post, but will try to post 2 times per week to start off with. Hopefully this will get me stamping more often!

So today I stamped. It was too cold to do anything else. With temps of -15 F and wind chills -30 F, you can't do anything BUT stay home!! So here is what I made...Pretty simple, but really is my style.

Stamps: Cheers to You
