September Release & blog hop winner


September stamps.. I can't believe I am saying September. I really feel like my summer was gone before it even started. Well we have some really fun creations to share with you. I am super excited! 
 (We now accept CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS TOO click  to learn how) 

Ghoul-Friend: this is the perfect Halloween set to mix and match with any other stamps you have. I am loving what the dt girls have made, I am so excited to have a whole month with this set. 

Awesome Blossom: I love flowers!I can't believe it took me this long to make this set. I wanted a set that could be mix and matched, but also used for other things.. like the dark I call it "fire cracker" flower top. I can't wait to make some OWH fireworks and freedom cards using that and the little one that is the same down by the pot. This is really an endless set.

Touchdown: okay all you football lovers. I know you are out there.. My husband is a HUGE! No wait HUGE New Orleans Saints & LSU fan. His sports room is decked out! The great thing about this is, I left the jersey, pennant, and helmet all so you can make it your own. This could be used really for any sport, that's kind of the beauty of it! I love foam fingers and had to throw one in there
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.. and get lots of crafty time..
Blog hop winner of all 3 new sets is....(by random.org)

Thank Moo!

This is Jingle!  Today I have a quirky little Thank You card for you using Cover-Ups and Alphabet Soup!  I just love that super cute cow!


Audrey here with a fun treat bag to share with you! I used the Admit One set for this project... I love that little clown!



It's Kim.  This month's release has been SO much fun with all of the bright circus colors.  I wanted to bring it down a little and show that the stamps from Party Animal can be CAS and pastel!!



Still Kim...I have a bonus for today.  I needed a pick-me-up card for a friend and I think the fish from Sea Mates will do the trick!!


Barb here with a quick share. I used individual words from get moovin to make this bright, funky card. Stop by my blog for details and some info about a great new challenge!


Hey Arielle here - joining the party - LOL! I brought the "Sushi Bar"...
