Wow, sorry I didn’t get to post yesterday but I spent the day with my daughter touring KSU so she could make a final decision about which college she wants to attend. The traffic was awful to get there, but the campus seemed lovely. Not sure that this has helped her since now she has to make a decision again. I’m trying real hard to stay neutral as she decides what is best for her future.
So what does this have to do with stamping? Well all of this had made me think of my old friends from school and when I see a tea pot I think of my old high school friend, Margie, and all the good times we had together over tea. So the image in the From My Heart Stamp Set makes me think of my friend and smile. I love both the images and sayings in this set. How about you? I think they’re all great and work wonderfully with our Framelits.
Here is a great card that I received in a swap using the From My Heart set. I really like the way that Susan used the Comfort Café’ Designer Series Paper with this image. And can you see the shimmer around the image? It’s been sponged with our Frost White Shimmer Paint (item 116854) and then again around the edges with Midnight Muse.

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the last day to send in your guess for the retirement top 10 contest. It’s just for fun and there will be a prize for the winner who guesses the most stamp sets correctly!
Want to play? Here’s how.
- Look through the 2012-2013 Catalog
- Make your list of 10 stamp sets you think will retire
- Add one more stamp set you think will retire in case I need a tie breaker (for a total of 11)
- Email your list to email@example.com subject line Retirement Party Contest
- Include your name, address, and phone number (I’ll need these if you’re the winner so I can get your prize to you.)
- Email me your list by 9 pm on Friday, April 19th
If by off chance the list is leaked early, then the contest is off. Remember, all Hostess sets retire so don’t include them in your list since they won’t count. Everyone is welcome to play; however, fellow Demonstrators won’t be included for the prize.
