For Cat Lovers

Cat-napHi friends.  In my family, my sister and brothers are the cat lovers.  My younger brother and his wife have a huge house in San Antonio and they foster many, many cats.  Their house is always impeccably clean so you wouldn’t know they have multiple cats until they let a few come out to play.  My sister has 2 cats and one makes her “home” under the sink in the guest bath.  I don’t know who was more surprised the first time I opened the cabinet door and saw her!

 That’s why I love this stamp.  It’s from Impression Obsession and it’s appropriately called “Cat Nap.” I colored it with Copic markers and it’s easy, if not quick.  Other supplies I used were Impression Obsession die Instant Photo Frame (photo corners); sentiment from Wordsworth; Designer: Jenny Gropp

Penny-Black-WordsWe have big orders from Memory Box and Poppystamps, Penny Black and Penny Black coming in so stop in soon and shop.  Penny Black's scripty word dies have been extremely popular and we just got in their new "Words of Gratitude" die.  Isn't it gorgeous!!  Call or email me to reserve yours today.
