'Thankful' en Masse - for Number 1's!

  Seriously ... there are some ~excellent reasons why many stampers are very selective about those times when we choose to engage in 'mass production'.   In alpha order .... 
  • Christmas
  • Swaps for stampy events ... sometimes
  • Team
~And ... exceptions may or may not be made as needed.  (Flexibility should be a virtue ... just sayin'.) 
  Changing the colors on the otherwise same card design might help.  At least it allows us to make good use of our "stash".   All of these cards feature the Fruit Stand designer papers.   I varied the embossing folders just for my own visual fun.  The reality of my current life includes some road blocks that affect the time required to produce/create more than 1 item at a time, so this particular project took a shameful number of days over the month, but as mentioned, most crafters carefully choose their causes for mass-production.   😉

Sometimes I consciously realize how sweet it is to be loving this craft of rubber stamping + card making.  Why?  Not only is it a perfect-for-me way of expressing creativity, but it has brought an unexpected wealth of delightful + treasured people into my life ... countless blessings to be sure.  And those who happen to be members of my Texas Rubber 'n Ink! team are the inspiration and coming recipients of this collection of cards! 
I'm delighted to be sharing what I love to do!  Thank you big bunches for shopping and stamping with me!

Winged Celebration!

It's hard to believe the sun is already down here in North Texas ... I am SO ready for the longer days of Spring.  Gray can be a nice color, but Winter's gray + cloudy days just need to mooooove on.   😉

Seems I've needed so many different types of cards to send lately!  Sharing a simple celebration card today, in pretty subtle colors to complement its upcoming recipient.  That's one of the really special parts of card making .. being able to customize or tailor a card to be uniquely suited for the one who will open the envelope!  The card's inspiration is from the FS523 'featured stamper' challenge at SCS this week, spotlighting 'AnniePanda'.  

Behind the dragonfly cutouts is a bit of the Falling in Love designer paper collection.  During the Summers, I'm blessed to see a couple of dragonfly varieties visiting here.  I adore their delicate wings, filled with an amazing shimmery quality.  Thus, it's the perfect time to add some Wink of Stella for that glitzy sparkle.   

If you're becoming a fan of this Dragonfly Dreams bundle, it's part of the Occasions catalog.  By adding just another $5 to your order, you'll already earn TWO Sale-A-Bration choices!  It's really that easy to add two favorite SAB freebies to your stampy zone!  Please let me know if I can help in any way.  I'm easy to find and happy to help.
