Sew Excited!

SEW...I just love this stamp set! Isn't it CUTE! It's TAC's Sew Thankful T-3288. I made the first card for Heather Scott's Monday Sketch Challenge 136. I love the layout and plan to use it more in the future! Thanks for the sketch Heather! The supplies used to make this card are all TAC. The Paper and Cardstock are both Amberly Grace from TAC. The sewing machine and sentiment come from Sew Thankful and the background stamp is Basic Blooms stamped with Charcoal Palette Ink. Do you like the little touch that Basic Blooms adds to the card? I do! Basic Blooms is a TAC Level A hostess set. You can get it free with a $34 purchase at my Customer Appreciation Event tonight!
The next card also features Sew Thankful! Did I mention that these cards are for my February Card Buffet? I am going to have a Card Buffet on February 21st! The cards will be first come first serve for $2 each. Please RSVP if you plan on attending. The fun part about this Card Buffet is we will be featuring stamp sets that are on sale, 25% off, in the month of February. Come stamp and replenish your supply of finished cards while shopping an AWESOME TAC sale. In these challenging times, I bet you know someone that could use encouragement! SEND HANDMADE CARDS!
The second card is also primarily TAC. I featured TAC's Emma cardstock and paper, images from Sew Thankful, and Copic Markers G82 and 94, YR21 and 24 from Caboodles set F and E70 and 74 from Caboodles set E. The Emma pattern paper is cut from SU! Top Note die. I bought it 2 years ago, I think, and just used if for the first time! I have to say that the card is a total case of one I saw somewhere...wish I could remember where. I made this card before the miscarriage and can not remember where my inspiration came from! My apologies, I would like to give credit where it is due. If this is your card layout, leave a comment!

Just One More...

I am really loving the Free Robyn Paper Download from The Angel Company. I know my last three posts have been very similar, all featuring Robyn and January Stamp of the Month, Frogs & Kisses. This is the last one, I promise! I made this card and now I am going to mail it to my friend.
Frogs & Kisses is on sale this month for just $10.95, normally $15.95. You can get Frogs & Kisses discounted with your purchase of $30 this month only! Come to my Customer Appreciation Event and pick up Frogs & Kisses and all the other great freebies and discounts while January lasts!

How about a treat?

I have been wanting to make one of these little treats for a long time. I think it turned out pretty cute. The base of this little bucket treat is a paper towel tube. I cut a 2 inch piece of the tube then covered it with SU Close to Cocoa cardstock and TAC Robyn Digi-Paper. The bottom of the tube is sealed off with a scrap of Close to Cocoa punched with a Super Jumbo Scallop Circle. Are you thinking about coming to my Customer Appreciation Event Friday or Monday? Join me either day and you can make this little treat tote and the matching card too!

New Year Customer Appreciation

It's been so long. I wonder if anyone is still checking my blog!?! I have not stamped much of anything for the last few months. It has been a very hard time for me and my family. If you're still here reading or subscribed, THANK YOU!

I want to say thank you to all the wonderful customers and friends that have stuck with me through 2010. To kick off the New Year, I am hosting a Customer Appreciation Event. Please join me in my home this Friday, January 28th OR next Monday, January 31st any time between 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm. We will make this cute Valentine card featuring this months' Stamp of the Month, Frogs and Kisses. The card is free and so is the Robyn Pattern Paper Download that I used to make it. I will also have food, beverages and random drawings for fun prizes and 40-50% discounts. Bring a $34 order and I will give you THREE gift with purchase stamp sets (Have you seen the newest ones??? SO CUTE!) AND one Level A Hostess stamp set. Did you hear that? TAC is so awesome! Your $34 order gets you 3 GWPs and a Level A hostess set!
