February Stamp of the Month:  Balloon Animals is a set that just about anyone can use...and it's OH-SO-CUTE! It's only $5 ($12.95 savings) with every $50  you order (before shipping and tax). Order $100, get 2...and so on.  When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set before you check out.

You Make Me Smile All-Occasion Card

You might be wondering how I am posting while lounging on an Eastern Caribbean beach. Well, that's the wonder of pre-posting! YAY! While I'm gone for the next week, you'll still be treated to posts today, Monday, Tuesday, and Friday.  Nifty!

You mean you didn't know I was gone? Well, be sure to check out the last post to see how you can benefit from my trip.  Did someone say, "FREE PAPER PACK?"  Yep, they sure did!

Now, let's talk about this card. My fabulously talented friend, Melanie Brown, at Courtney Lane Designs, designed this card and I copied it 100% exactly. Shameless! I couldn't help myself. It was just too cute!

Don't forget that this darling "Share the Love" stamp set is only available this month. It's $17.95 and $7 of that goes straight to Operation Smile. You can order it on my website here.

FREE Paper Packets to Say THANK YOU

TOMORROW is a BIG day!  Because of YOU, my wonderful customers, I have earned another wonderful trip with Close To My Heart. I leave tomorrow for the Eastern Caribbean with our daughter, Kori (Dan couldn't get time off work, so we are making it a girls' trip!).  Eeeeek! I am so excited!

Because a large part of what goes into earning these trips is the points that I earn from YOUR orders, I decided while I was gone, YOU should be rewarded too!

Here's how it works:  Between February 25 and March 5, while I'm enjoying the sun, sand and surf, if you place an order on my website, you'll get FREEBIES from me.

For every $50 you order (before shipping and tax), you'll get a FREE paper packet from the Expressions 1 mini-catalog. I know it's not an Eastern Caribbean vacation, but it's just a little somethin' somethin' from me to let you know how much I appreciate my loyal customers.  While you place your orders, just imagine yourself on the white beaches of St. John's, reading your favorite book, and stopping every once in a while to walk along the edge of the turquoise water as the waves softly brush your feet. 

Here's  how to get your paper packet:
1.  Place your order on my website (
2.  Email me ( with your paper packet(s) choices, your name, and your mailing address. You can choose from Charlotte (pg 5), Penelope (pg 15) and/or Regatta (pg 23), one for every $50 you order (before shipping and tax)
3. When I get home, I will order your paper packets and have them sent to you. This will be a separate box from the order you place on my website.

Here are photos of the three paper packets to choose from...

Balloon Animal Happy Birthday Card

These little balloon animals in the February Stamp of the Month are so cute that I just had to use as many as possible on this card! I had fun random stamping several of them in fun, bright colors (Lagoon, Honey, Pear and Pixie).  I cut out the pink elephant and popped him up with a little bit of foam tape for that little bit of extra pop.

This stamp set is only available in February, and is only $5 ($12.95 savings) with a $50 order (before shipping and tax). Order $100, get 2...and so on. When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before you check out.
