Brimming with Love

One of our FAVORITE Penny Black stamps is this cute little kitty in the cup. I love the colors Doreen chose for this card...the papers is from American Crafts and she used Copic Markers to color. Spellbinders circles aer used for the cut outs. The verse is from Penny Black. HOW SWEET!!

You're da Bomb!

Amuse lights things up for your Valentine with this quirky little bomb and verse. Doreen put this simple card together and I think it is too cute! What a great card for a guy...young or old!

Greetings from CHA!

Hello from CHA!

Wow!!! We've been seeing LOTS of new things! Overwhelming at times....

We've placed orders for many of those things! Expect to see new stamps...some great new lines, lots of new papers.....a few new lines, new Spellbinders dies and other neat stuff! I can't remember it all.

Mary: please start making room for more paper!

Doreen & I stood in line on Monday to get one of Tim's new dies. I snapped this great photo of Doreen with Tim! The brown suitcase looking thing on the table next to Tim's hand is a proto-type of his new die cutting machine. You can see his dies on his blog as well as all his other new products.

We have one more day at the show. We have a few orders to place and just a few booths to revisit. Then we head back to frigid Minnesota early on Thursday morning. Brrrr.....
We heard about the blizzard we missed......we're not sad to be where it's 60 degrees. It rained today but even that wasn't hard to take knowing it wouldn't turn to ice.

Hope all's well with all of you!
See you at Fond Memories!
