Thinking of You

Hi Creative Friends,

Papertrey Ink has a splendid collection of bird stamps and dies. The one I chose for this card design is one of the very latest, Feathered Friends 22 Mini stamp and die set. This little bird has long, graceful tail feathers and a beautiful decorative body. This sweet bird was a delight to make and the accompanying branch and flower stamps make it that much more special!

Wishing You Peace and Joy

Hi Crafty Friends,

I am sharing a charming scene of adorable mice decorating their Christmas tree. This delightful stamp set, Wonderful Time, is one of Anita Jeram’s creations from the Colorado Craft Company. Little mice are one of my very favorite critters (as long as they are not in my house!) to color and use so this stamp set was perfect.

By the way, if you haven’t seen Colorado Craft Company’s stamp sets yet, take a little gander at the new ones we just got in. They are killin’ it with their creative and charming designs!
