AUTUMN DAYS

Here's a timeless stamp set just right for the season.  I have used it for a Thanksgiving card below.  (OK why not have pheasant instead of turkey for dinner?)  



This set has it all and I used two of the stamps on the front of the card, in addition to the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  There are also two different kinds of branches with leaves, an individual maple leaf and a pine cone stamp in this set.  Lots of possibilities.

The stamp set is appropriately called Autumn Days (#115452) and is available on my web site.

Have a great day and thanks for looking.

SENDING SALTY MEOWS

*****************************************************
It's so sad when we lose a furry friend.  Having known that feeling personally, I try to send a sympathy card to the owner of a lost pet.  It really helps to know someone else feels your pain.  This is a card we made in one of my classes, and I was pleased to find I still have the working sample of it.  Going forward, I'm going to keep a supply on hand for just such an occasion.


 

The stamp set is called "C is for Cat" and the sentiment, "so sorry for the loss of your little friend" says it all. Colors are Peach Parfait ink on Whisper White card stock, Basic Grey for the sentiment, Tempting Turquoise on Baja Breeze card stock, and a 2-1/2" circle punched from Real Red and trimmed with our wonderful new Dazzling Details.  All is mounted onto Pear Pizzazz card stock.  (I love that color).

Don't forget (especially if you're a new stamper) the most wonderful way to get started on your stamping journey is to take advantage of this month's special.  Purchase two "Simply Sent" kits and receive a coordinating stamp set!  So easy - all materials provided and pre-cut with full instructions.  Be careful though - you WILL get hooked on this hobby once you show off your beautiful work and can say, "I made this".  Have a great day and remember to pay a good deed forward - it feels so good!
