Flower Shop birthday and Banner Greetings

Did you notice that the new Pansy Punch has a great stamp set it coordinates with called Flower Shop (page 94 of the annual catalog)? This is my favorite stamp in the set. Talk about quick and easy cards!

This card starts with a Crumb Cake base and a strip of now retired Neutral designer paper. There's a new Neutral dsp pad you can buy to build a similar card. The images from Flower Shop and Banner Greetings (a hostess set) were stamped in Strawberry Slush. I used a ruler and Crumb Cake marker around the Very Vanilla layer under the flower, which was adhered with dimensionals, as was the hand-cut banner. I love the big pearl in the center! I CASE'd this card from Kim Singdahlsen. I simplified since I was using this card as one of 10 designs for a 20-card class last month.
Just over a week left in August! This panics my kids, because it means school is looming in the near future. But for you, it means this: Order the Tag It stamp set from me by August 31 and you'll get your name entered into a drawing for the Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in the Holiday Catalog. I'll announce the winner on Sept. 1 AND if you use the following hostess code, you'll also be eligible to win the hostess benefits - GGQ2GJ3A.
I'm not sure how old this copper aircraft carrier cookie cutter is since I wasn't able to find it on the Kitchen Collectibles website, but living in a area where you can drive by these humungous carriers made this a special find for me. The ends are riveted, and the cutter cuts both ways, so it'll last forever! And best of all, it's Made in the U.S.A. Treasure abound at Please "Like" us to join the fun!

These were sold by the spouse group for the USS Abraham Lincoln in 2000. I have one and need another. Do you only sell in store or do you sell online also?
