Random Facts #2

Hello My Friends!

I love random facts so I thought I would share some with you! Random facts inspire me to learn more. Learning more inspires me to create. Creating allows me to do what I love every single day. So random fact numero dos. (number two)

Topic: Huey Lewis & the News
Fact: The song, "Hip to be Square", is about a free spirited member of the hippie movement of the 1960s who has embraced the conformist yuppie lifestyle of the 1980s -wikipedia

Ok! Ok! Ok! that random fact was a stretch...I had to say something about it because we have a stamp set named hip2be... I sing that song in my head every time I see it. I'm sure you will now too. (If you don't already)

Check out this stamp set and embrace your creativity!



Happy Stamping!

Did You Get Your Flu Shot?

Hello My Friends!

Everyone in my family has been sick with something in the last couple of weeks! I cannot believe I haven't caught anything. It must be all of the Diet Coke in my system.

If anyone in your family has gotten sick, it would be nice to have a card on hand to let them know you wish them well and hope for a speedy recovery. Here is a card from our gallery that would be great to recreate and send to someone who is ailing...

Did You Forget Something?

Hello My Friends!!

I cannot belive it! I forgot it was one of our beloved employees' birthday last week. It was on the calendar and everything. I suppose with my travel schedule and everything else going on, she will forgive me. Donuts make everything better, right?

We have all forgotten someone's birthday at one time or another. Make up for it by making them an extra special card on their special day. Here is an idea that I thought would be absolutely perfect to recreate for just that occasion...This card was uploaded to the gallery by our design team member, Jeanne.

    Jeanne used the late4bday stamp set to make this cute card.
