Laurel Burch Heart Bouquet by Stampendous

Good morning everyone! I recently returned from Jennifer Dove’s Copic Boot Camp where I received lots of stamps, dies, adhesives and other products from generous sponsors. You can see a sample of the gifts in my recent Instagram posts, but there’s lots more that I haven’t yet had a chance to acknowledge. Boot Camp was fabulous! I got to catch up with old friends from across the country and meet new friends along the way. Registration for next year’s boot camp will probably open in early spring so jump on it to reserve your spot.

I’ve spent the past few days trying to organize all my loot from Boot Camp. There must be over twenty stamps from sponsors like My Favorite Things, Lawn Fawn, Witt & Sass, Crafting Desert Divas and many others. And I apparently went on a buying spree just before I left because lots of packages arrived while I was gone. So I’m knee deep in new product that I’ll be showing off in the coming months.

In the course of organizing, I came across a card that I made as a card model for The Queen’s Ink and never posted so I’ll leave you with this one featuring the Laurel Burch Heart Bouquet Stamp by Stampendous to brighten up a cold November day. And for you local folk – don’t forget that I’m offering three classes this month:

  • November 10Fall Friends (featuring My Favorite Things), Photo Scraps, Eldersburg, MD.
  • November 15Fall Friends (featuring My Favorite Things), Photo Scraps, Eldersburg, MD.
  • November 20Winter Greetings (featuring Power Poppy), Queen’s Ink, Savage Mills, MD.

Hope to see you there!

Game Day by House Mouse Designs

Football season is underway here in the United States. Although I live near the stadium, I can’t say that I follow the game. At best, I can tell you the name of the home team and that they wear purple. My dad at age ninety is still a big football fan and when I was a child, all of us would sitting around the TV on Sunday afternoons to watch the game. This was in the days before televisions had remotes so one of us kids was usually charged with the task of flipping the channels and adjusting the rabbit ears to get the best reception.

This card was created as a store model for Photo Scraps. Stop by the store and see it in person!
