Play Ball!

My eldest daughter spent last week in Hutchison, KS at the Softball World Series.  Her team had more fun than wins, but it’s playing the game that matters right?  Whatever…  Anyway, the SSDT made these awesome softball (yellow ball) and baseball (white ball) cards in honor of the season.  Monica1stbase72

All The Pretty Dresses

When I asked the new design team members which stamps they wanted to begin working with, I was happy to find many of them chose one of my very favorite stamps, Three Dresses – 017G.  This is one of the “original 65” – the 65 stamps I had in my first printed catalog.  It is very dear to me because I have three daughters!  When I started SS, my oldest two daughters were 5 and 7 yrs old and wouldn’t wear anything BUT dresses (boy has that changed!).  Now there are three girls, ages 14, 14, and 16.  And the closest they get to a dress is a too-short jean skirt!  Anyway, I thought you might like to see a group of these wonderful dress cards!

July….and December

I noticed that the orders for Christmas stamps have really picked up, so I can tell it’s July!  Plus, last night I put the finishing touches on the new line of Autumn and Winter stamps (more on that in future posts!).  This reminded me of two great cards Sue Eldred made years ago (before patterned paper and embellishments).  With just a little imagination, one stamp can take on two completely different looks!  On both cards, Sue used American Crafts gel pens to do the coloring.  The white gel pen is really effective!
