New photopolymer stamp set!

SNUGGLES AND SMOOCHES

Snuggles and Smooches. It’s a bit of a silly name, right? I think it’s a fun, new way to say “hugs and kisses.”

The sentiment was inspired by my love of snuggling my two pups, Hammond and Penny, and giving smooches to my hunky husband, Joe.

At first glance, this month’s new photopolymer release may seem like it is just for Valentine’s Day, but I think it could be used any time of the year when you want to share some affection with those you love.
Photo 1 - Snuggles and Smooches

Two of my favorite images in the set are the swirls. I’m sure you’ve noticed how trendy it is to wind up some Linen Thread or Baker’s Twine and use it as an element on cards and other projects. You can see on this card how the large swirl image helps accomplish a similar feel.
Photo 2 - Oodles of Valentine
The swirls also create interesting background patterns that can be used with a technique like emboss resist—as shown on this adorable little card.
Photo 3 - My Silly Valentine
Or simply stamp—as I did on this tag. The “Love” sentiment works great for creating a chalkboard effect.
Photo 4 - Love Tag
There are three heart images in this stamp set. They were drawn to coordinate with  three of our heart punches: the Sweetheart Punch, the Hearts Border Punch, and the heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. The “Love” sentiment will also coordinate with either of the Tag Topper punches.

Cute Surprise!

As most of you know, my family owns property with about 20 head of cattle. I always love the spring time because the new babies arrive. I love baby cows! Well day before yesterday we had a surprise! A new born baby calf in the fall. He is so cute and best of all I was able to pet the cute little guy.



























The Story Behind our newest Photopolymer stampset "The Banner Blessings "

Banner Blessings

About a year-and-a-half ago, Stampin' Up! announced a new contest inviting all stampers, demonstrators and non-demonstrators, to put on their creative caps and submit a design for a monster-themed set. You all might remember my sweet friend, Doris, and her winning Monster Maniacs set? :-) I loved the set and didn't mind being the runner-up to her creation. So when Shelli announced at convention that year that there would be another contest, I knew I wanted to try again! 
As my mother and I drove back to Vegas from our first convention, we brainstormed all sorts of sayings and phrases that we thought would make a great stamp set. When I went back to work, I couldn't help but doodle here and there. I would draw something, take a picture, and send it to my mom and she'd say yes or no. (She was my upline at the time so I figured she knew what would work. After all, mother knows best!)
One night I was rocking our middle son to sleep and saw the Bible verse I had painted on a canvas to match his spaceship-themed room. "Shine like stars in the universe"--one of my favorite verses of scripture. That's when I decided I wanted to do a scripture set. I sat down and thought of a few that I felt would not only look great on a card but would reach someone who needed to be lifted up.
I was in the Air Force for nine years. All nine years were spent far from family, and even a few months were in the Middle East--away from my husband and our 7-month-old son. Nothing helped more than the scripture verses my mom or dad or my church family would write on my cards. In fact, I still have a scrap of paper with a verse that my dad sent me while I was in basic training. 
There's something special about making a card for someone and I wanted these Banner Blessings to make it even more special! Thank you, Stampin’ Up!, for the opportunity, and thanks to everyone for their support! I hope you enjoy the set as much as I have already! :-)

Fun with my daughter

I just wanted to share a few pictures of a 5K run I did with my daughter. She is training to run a marathon and wants to qualify for Boston. Here we are raising money for a local charity that supports handicapped children.
