April Showers




April Showers bring May flowers!  I sure hope so, because we have had lots of April showers.  Our backyard is under water!  I liked this simple but colorful card.  The red umbrella is so cheerful.  Simply pop up the smaller panel to give a faux emboss effect.  Really quick and simple.



Patriotic Pride

I’m so saddened by the events earlier today at the Boston Marathon.  I don’t have a card that expresses my feelings, but I do have this card in RW&B  that is a simple emboss resist.  My heart goes out to Boston and all those that were there today.  A huge thank you to those who rushed in to help the injured, never worrying about what else could happen.  God Bless our first responders and all the brave folks who were there to help today.

My prayers for healing for those physically injured, and families who lost a loved one.


New Wood Mount Cases

Introducing Stampin’ Up! new wood-mount stamp set packaging!  These brand new cases are similar to Stampin’ Up!’s clear mount cases and will fit perfectly on the shelf with them!!  Yea!!!  They also have the images and stamp set mane on the spine to make searching for the right set even easier.  Do you love it??   Now our stamp shelves will look uniform and organized.  How cool is that?

Check out this video so you can see for yourself how amazing these new boxes are!

Color Refresh

WOW!  Stampin’ Up! is full of news and announcements today but biggest of all is the announcement of the color refresh!  Some of my favorite former “IN” colors are back as part of the color palette now, and some colors are just moved around.  Sadly, a few favorites are being retired. (bashful blue and certainly celery  :(    )  If you’re going to miss any of these- now it the time to stock up on those retiring colors- which are only available while supplies last.  And remember- this weekend, from Saturday through Monday there is free shipping on all orders!  What a great time to stock up, or get those things you’ve been thinking about.   And….here is the new color chart:image
