Once again, we just love it when customers share their creativity with us. Margo Seegrist shared these cards with Dianne at the store earlier this week.

by Margo Seegrist
Margo stamped a boat in a lighter ink color
and then stamped over it with a sentiment stamp.

by Margo Seegreist
Using a jar stamp and combining it with
a stamp of a ship. Very clever!

by Margo Seegrist
Margo used only a part of a stencil for the
background when she sponged the ink on; then
she over stamped with the sentiment stamp.
Another great way to make multiple cards of the
same design.

We all love this Haiku bunny stamp
and we all love how Margo designed
a card around it.

by Margo Seegrist
Margo used only a portion of a die cut
and wove ribbon through the center.

by Raedene Woods
She only sponged the center of a template
for an effective background to the
flower and butterfly die cuts.

Kittie Caracciolo has posted, what I think is a very simple and elegant card for Impression Obsession. It's worth checking out.

It's been a beautiful day and during the afternoon, we had so much fun putting our vintage cookbooks together. Photos to come!

Friendly reminder . . . Recycled Rubber is coming up in a couple of weeks. So, please have your items to the store by the close of business on Wednesday on September 3 so staff has adequate time to label and price it.

See you tomorrow!
