They're here!!! The new Memory Box stamps are here!!!
The new Memory Box stamps arrived today! I helped Lydia unpack them and place them on the shelves. We also got some new cards and envelopes in a couple of new colors and some great white textured cardstock that the Memory Box folks have been using for watercolored stamped images. Another order came yesterday--the reordering of things we'd run out of and a few new-to-us images. There's the cutest Garden Bunny, a Bare Oak tree, more Bramble Hearts and more Tree of Love. There's a new-to-us Build-A-Tree with leaves stamp on the end, more Log Home stamps and Stump Parade. A whole bunch of Big and Little Squirrels were in that box, too! You really need to come into the shop and get some of these stamps before they are gone. I hear that there are a few Easter stamps from Memory Box that we will be ordering next week as well. Oh, you've got to get some of the new Daffodil Pearls--what a lovely shade of yellow! Perfect for flower centers or adding that extra bling to spring and Easter cards.
Some other things that came in this week:
gorgeous new extra large clear stamps from Tattered Angels--butterflies and flourishes; owls
Lemonade paper in pink/yellow; fire hydrant/paw paper for the dog lovers
a new 6X6 pack called Fernbrae from Memory Box
Hero Arts clear stamps of Feathers that are just beautiful
a scallop circle Marvy lever punch
Lydia ordered the peg stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry today, so those should be here within a week or so. We ordered plenty of extras, so there will be all kinds of sets and individual peg stamps for those of you who like to work with tiny images. You are going to LOVE these! Maybe we can get Paula to do another demo or make and take soon once she has hers, too.
Lydia has also been creating collage-y packs--a card and envelope, some coordinating papers and stickers, extra doo-dads and such--$5 each! Come check them out and let her know if you want her to make more.
There's still room in my Monday Trees-Trees-Trees class where we will be making all occasion cards with trees as the central image. $15, 1-3 PM

Dad has been forcing twigs from various trees and bushes in our yard. The forsythia branches blossomed today in the vase on top of the refrigerator. I don't know about you, and it hasn't been an awful winter really, but I am so ready for spring. I'm envious of friends on the west coast who are already working in their gardens!
