Sail Away….

Have you heard of a vacation from a vacation?  That is what my husband is treating me to!

I’ll be out of touch for a week until February 24th  and will respond to questions, emails, and messages as soon as I can.  My Online Store is still open!

Please help me out and shop in February.  Use Host Code TYETTD4G at checkout and receive a FREE gift from me.

Thanks for understanding and in the meantime….

Happy Stamping!

Dog & Cat Lovers …. this is for you!

Did you know that 68% of households in the U.S.  have a pet (according to a survey done in 2017-2018)?  I’m sure that you either have a pet yourself or have a friend who is a pet owner.

Since pets become a real family member to those who own them, I find myself in need of pet sympathy cards occasionally.  Here is one that I made using the Happy Tails stamp set that is  suitable for a dog owner.  Of course, the stamp set includes other sentiments making this a versatile stamp set.

A word of caution…be extra careful where you stamp the image of the dog bone!  HA!

So Hoppy Together Makes a Cute Valentine!

Sometimes you have to think outside the box.  This frog doubles for Valentine’s Day when he is juggling hearts!  On the inside of this card, I wrote Happy Valentine’s Day!

If you don’t have a stamp set for the specific occasion you need,  look at the stamp sets you do have.  I’ll bet you have something that will work if you just give it some thought.

Choose the “So Hoppy Together’ stamp set as your FREE Sale-a-bration item when you purchase $50 (before shipping/tax) during Sale-a-bration.   The cute hearts were punched using the Dog Builder Punch.
