Today is the big day at Hanna Stamps!, the day where five sets become available. Yes. FIVE sets. I have been very busy! Up first is a card that I was not sure what to do with. I made the little doggy image but didn't have a layout that worked for them. I got the idea for the layout from Frances, also known as StampOwl. The dogs and tree are from Hanna and are available today!
This stamp set is from Papertrey. You can't see it on the internet, but I stamped in white on the brown tag and it says " Friend Thank You". This layout is CASE'd from Amy Rysavy. She is on the Papertrey Design team and used to be on The DT for Hanna Stamps. Look up talent in the dictionary and you will see her picture. (I don't know why my color switches to blue or what I should do about it. It's like unwannted magic. Look up SLOW in the dictionary and you will see my picture!)
My local stamping/scrapbooking store is closing tomorrow after three short years in business. I made cards for several of the ladies there who have become my friends. I already gave everyone my personal info so we can still get together with each other and do crafty stuff. I am heartbroken and sad about the closing. It has been great to have this store about 1.5 miles from my home. The cards posted today are also going to the ladies today as I go over one final time to say goodbye. After this I am left with chain stores to shop at. So much for supporting local businesses. At least I know I did my part while I was able.
This is also a CASE from Amy Rysavy. I always forget what CASE means exactly, but it means something like "Copy and Share Everywhere." Only I am only sharing here, not everywhere. This is a set called Out On A Limb from Papertrey. There are stickles in the flowers so they shine nicely in real life.
This is from a Stampin Up set, The World Over. Just a simple layout. You can see I was on a roll with thick ribbon. The saying says " Seeds of Friendship bring flowers of joy."
This stamp is from Kasparek's. I am a United Methodist, and we credit John Wesley as our founder, soI just had to have a John Wesley quote for my cards. I think this card is a bit boring, but that's just the way it is today.
I am off to the store to say goodbye and then to Target to get some supplies that will help me organize Seth's bedroom while he is at school.
