Boxes, Boxes Everywhere

...and not a stamp in sight!  it's moving week here, and I sadly packed up my creative corner last night.  I so hate boxing up all my stamps and punches and dies and paper, but it was time.  I'd been holding off as long as possible, in hopes that I'd have time to stamp and share one more card or project to share, especially since my preorder from the Holiday Catalog arrived a few weeks ago.

But moving also means you have to live in the moment, and enjoy every last minute with people you won't see for a while--so that's what I've been doing with my spare time, and as soon as I have my new creative corner in place, I'll be making lots of cards to send to the people I miss already.  Can't wait to share with you!

In the meantime, there are also two exciting things coming on August 1--the holiday catalog, which you will LOVE, and MDS2, which expands your options for My Digital Studio and makes it even easier to use.

Stay tuned!

Happy Birthday America!

Since it's the 4th, and I have a birthday card to share, why not wish our country a happy birthday?  Sorry for my absence--I've been on vacation in VT and NY, and what a great vacation it was!  Kiran joined me, and she had her first experience at the Loft, aka Stamping Heaven.  It was wonderful!  Plus there were beautiful views, fantastic fireworks, great friends and great food.  Hip hip hooray for summer!

This card is a great and easy summer birthday card that is monochromatic (that's for you, Mary Kay) and features one of my favorite sets, Mixed Bunch.  You don't even need to punch the flowers out for them to look fantastic!  The sentiment is from a retired hostess set, but it's one that will never go out of style.

Have a happy, fun and safe 4th of July!

Stamps: Mixed Bunch, Warmest Regards
