Delightful Daisy

Delightful Daisy

There is something about daisies that I can never get enough of!  If a flower stamp has a matching punch, I am all over it!  I simply love the coordination of stamping and punching and it doesn’t matter how many flower stamps I have.

finalThe Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper makes a simple and easy project when paired with the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and punch.  I am always inspired by flowers, my garden and nature.  Aren’t you?

Stamping Is The Best Therapy!

Stamping Is The BEST Therapy!

It is hard to give myself permission to give myself time off! (Let me tell you, it IS hard!) Thank you for checking in to see how I am feeling. I am feeling a little bit better this afternoon, but I fatigue easily.

One of the things that I wanted to share is that I am overwhelmed by your outpouring of affection! Each and every card, flower arrangement, phone call, email, text or meal means so much to me. I guess you could say it is like one HUGE hug! I consider everyone an angel on my shoulders!

This sweet little hand carved angel has been watching over me.

IMG_2524 (1)One of the many things that I have come to learn is being better at receiving.  It is hard and I am getting lots of practice.

mantelYour gifts and flowers have all brought me much encouragement and I have certainly never felt so loved during this difficult time.

flowersIt is sometimes so overwhelming that words cannot express how truly grateful I am that you have reached out to me!  I am not sure what tomorrow brings and I have lots of fears, but I know that I am very blessed to have so many wonderful and caring people behind me.

Bridgeport Hospital and it’s staff have been wonderful.  The doctors and staff of the Norma Pfriem Breast Center have been caring and kind professionals and I thank them wholeheartedly.

But, last Thursday, Ed and I received news that deflated my positive balloon. The results of my pathology report came back that I had Stage 1 cancer and an appointment with an oncologist was scheduled for Jan 30th. The bright side of my mastectomy is that my lymph nodes are clear. I am not sure where my journey and recovery will take me, but you can be sure that I will stay in touch in the next week or so.

I am taking advantage of this afternoon to write to you and get some thank you notes finished.  I wanted to show you that you don’t need to send anything elaborate for your thank you notes.  I will be sharing a few ideas over the next few weeks.  (I have a lot of them to stamp and write.)  Like the post title says, “Stamping is the BEST therapy!”

I fell in love with the Swirly Bird Bundle a few months ago when the Annual Catalog came out.  I think it is versatile.  So much so, that I used it for some Christmas Cards this year.

To make your thank you cards even easier, add a set of Note Cards and Envelopes, either in Whisper White or Kraft.  They are cut and scored for you.

Banners For You

Banners For You

Blue Striped Night of Navy and Whisper White make my heart go pitter patter!  This color combination is both gorgeous and spectacular at the same time.

Christine’s Tip: 

  • I like my cards quick and easy, however, keeping things to an absolute minimum works best for my busy schedule.  If you are busy like me and the rest of the world, then keep your color palette to two colors, Whisper White and one other color.
  • Even better, stamp on your pretty papers.  This one, Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper works well to do just that.
  • I love to SAVE 10% by bundling and saving.  This versatile stamp set coordinates with the Bunch of Banners Framelits!

Use the Hostess Code HVXNTG4V  when you place your order in my Online Store and I will send you a package of Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine. Do not use the Hostess Code if you place an order of $150 or more. You will still receive the FREE Gift.

Thank You | Quick and Easy Notecards!

Thank You | Quick and Easy Notecards!

Psst! Do you want to know the easiest way to make a card? Start with Note Cards & Envelopes. They’re ready for you to make and send a card. Each card has thicker card stock for layering and embellishing.

Quick and easy is my motto!  When you have to send thank you notes, why not send a handstamped one.  One that is quick and easy to do.  Note cards are prepackaged for you, making this project truly 5 minutes or less.

Crumb Note CardsGrab a package of precut and prescored notecards available in either Whisper White or Crumb Cake (shown).  Using Archival Basic Black ink, stamp your flowers and sentiment quickly and easily on the front.  Fold, add your message and send to your recipient.  Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!

We don’t always have alot of time to sit down and spend an hour on making a card. There are times when you have to send out a few thank you notes to friends and family.  Now is the time to think quick and easy.  Handstamping your own cards makes your recipient feel special.

Notecards Make A Great Gift!

Notecards Make A Great Gift!

il_570xN.812338728_96fvOne of the best things about being a stamper is giving a handstamped gift during the holidays.  Many times, the recipient does not know the love and care you have put into these gifts.  However, the satisfaction of knowing that you handstamped the gift is a gift all by itself.

Christine’s Tips:

  • These little sets of cards are great for hostess gifts, after party thank yous, teacher notes, customer appreciation, shower favors and even stocking stuffers.
  • These gifts comes together quick when you add a cello bag tied with a pretty ribbon and tag for the holidays.
  • I know you can add Designer Series Paper and embellishments to the cards as well as popped up letter monograms to make it personalized, but sometimes one layer is all you need when you have to be quick about the gifts.
  • The Notecards and Envelopes come as a set.   They even come cut and scored for you!

So here it is in a nutshell, KEEP IT SIMPLE!
