Miyako's Heartfelt Thanks

Happy Sunday!  Hope you're having a nice weekend!  Here's the third and final image for Sister Stamps' January release and today we introduce Miyako!  You would think this is a Valentine's image, but Debi paired her up with the "Heartfelt Thanks" sentiment from Hero Arts and not only does it work, but it gives you multiple uses for this cute image.

If you'd like to win the Miyako stamp, make sure you're a follower of this blog and leave a comment on THIS POST.  Check back tomorrow to see if you're a winner.

Thanks for stopping by!

Yoshimi Thank You

Welcome back for another Sister Stamps release.  Today's card was created by Debi and feature's the precious Yoshimi with her beautiful fans.  The background  was done using Lifestyle Crafts "Wave's Die" layered over some washi paper which sort of creates a shoji screen effect.  The "thank you" sentiment was adhered with some mounting tape and it's a quick and easy way to add a message to your card.  They're sold at the store along with a variety of other sentiments.

If you'd like to enter to win the Yoshimi stamp, follow this blog and comment on THIS POST.  Winners will be announced on January 16.

Come on back tomorrow for one more chance to win some blog candy!

Valentine's with Keitaro & Some Blog Candy

You've probably already heard, Sister Stamps is releasing three new images this month...and they're nothing but cute, cute, cute!  Here's a treat holder Debi created featuring a tag with the adorable Keitaro. She made a simple box and added some interest to it by punching a heart border to mimic the hearts Keitaro is holding.  She also created a cute "love" banner using Lawn Fawn's Bannerific set.

A release wouldn't be complete without some prizes so we've decided to give away some candy.  If you'd like to join in the fun and win this stamp, just become a follower of our blog and leave a comment on THIS post.  Winners will be announced on January 16!

Stop by tomorrow for another blog candy opportunity!

I am pleased to say that we are making good progress. You would not be able to tell it if you peeked in as there are piles everywhere, but I assure you, we are working hard to get it done. Tracy is kindly putting up with me and I her... Sometimes I think we are crazy... but it's worth it. We spend a lot of time laughing... we are good at laughing at ourselves.
