Happy October!


The stamp of the Month for October is Christmas Tunes!  Available only in October.  If you place a $50 order (before shipping/taxes) you can purchase for only $6 (+ shipping/taxes)!  Otherwise, purchase alone for only $23 (+ shipping/taxes).

Can't wait to start creating with it - I did do one already that was posted here if you missed it.

Also this month is the Share a Smile promotion for Operation Smile. In case you didn't already know, $7 from the purchase of the stamp set is ​donated to Operation Smile, the charity Close to My Heart proudly supports.

And I think that is it for new October news!

Enjoy your day!

It's September already and I guess Fall is around the corner, though thankfully the weather is not thinking that - I love, love, love all this sunshine!  I feel terrible for all the folks effected by the multiple fires happening in our Province (and other places) however.  Hoping they all get some very much needed rain soon.

I do have lots of news for this month so will get on with that bit ... new Stamp of the Month, Feel So Blessed, is awesome and I look forward to creating with it soon!

The National Stamping Month promotion is awesome and I have been having some fun with it.  You're gonna love it but don't miss out as it's only here till the end of September!  

It is also the beginning of a new Holiday Expressions catalogue which is so cute! 

New art is in the works and will be posted soon!

If you are wanting a paper version of the Holiday Expressions or haven't received your Annual Inspirations catalogue yet, please contact me.

Enjoy your day!
