Our last blog hop at Clearly iStamp Blog….


If you haven’t heard Lori is closing Clearly Digi Stamps. You will have until Sept 30th to get any digital stamp in the store for 25% off.  Enter this code at checkout:  SEPT30CLOSING

Just so you know we are not going to be selling my husband’s digital stamps anywhere so if you want any of Patrick Dunnegan’s stamps that are in the store you have until Sept 30th. Then they won’t be for sale anymore (at least for awhile). His work is keeping him busy so he doesn’t have any time to draw right now and I need a break.

So this is our last blog hop at Clearly iStamp Blog and our farewell to show off Lori’s amazing product one last time. The theme is “Anything Goes” but it is also a tribute to this wonderful company that God so blessed me to be a part of.  When I met Lori I had never been on a design team and had NEVER worked with digital stamps. I didn’t have a blog!! Real stamping scares me to death and I’m not good at it so why would this lady with a stamp company would even think about letting me be on her Design Team was beyond me!! It had to be God because she sent me Kitchen Clutter Digital Image and asked me to try out using that digital stamp. So I did and sent her several samples hoping she would like one of them!! Check out the post here for all of the samples.  But here are two of my favorites:

Towel - thank you card

Dirty Dishes Runneth over

So in March 2011 I got a blog and in April 2011 Lori invited me to be on the Design Team. She hasn’t been able to get rid of me yet!!

So when trying to decide what to do for this blog hop I was torn from using Kitchen Clutter or an SVG file since my first assignment on the team was to make samples for SVG files. But I ended up going with what I love about the company….It’s Christian. The people, the owner, the stamps… all Christian. Thank you Lori for having a Christian company out there with Christian stamps. The stamps have been used and will be used in my church card ministry and I thank you for having that product out there. That is one thing I will miss.

Cleansed in life-giving waters,

we become the family of God.

Congratulations and best wishes

on this Baptismal Day!

I made this for part of the Card Ministry at my church. It will be the Masculine Adult card given when there is a baptism. I used Cross Messages Digital Image  and the digital paper that comes with it.

Stay Calm and Buy Shoes!!!


Oh mother nature has rained havic on my day! I have had no internet at the house since yesterday! Which is totally NOT cool when Clearly iStamp is having their monthly blog hop! So I hope to have my card up shortly.

I hope you came from Dee’s Blog – Dee’s Design Blog

The theme this month is STAY CALM AND _____________ (Fill in the blank). Well, I have seen this saying everywhere but had no clue where it came from or the meaning behind it. So I googled it and discovered that basically now it can be used for anything and is just a marketing tool.

So I made this card with my friend in mind who loves high heel shoes! I used the digital image Walk by Faith.


You have a chance to win this digital image just for leaving me a comment!! Each blog gets to pick one winner from the comments to win the stamp that was used on the blog.

After you leave me a comment head over to Linda’s Blog – The Stamper’s Touch Make sure to leave her a comment too so you will have a chance to win the digtal image she used on her card!

First with the sun out nice and bright lately this digital stamp – Summer Fun will come in handy.


I found the saying on the internet and thought it was perfect!! This card took on a retro look all on its own….that wasn’t planned!! I love how this card turned out.

I used the sketch from Seize the Birthday #18 Sketch
