Saturated Canary & La La Land Stamp cards by Grandma Bonnie and Kim

Hi everyone! Today we're sharing two cards again for inspiration.

The first features this awesome holiday stamp by Saturated Canary by our fabulous first Guest Designer! I love how bright and cherry this card is. Can someone hand me a candy cane, please?! They are new to rubber and currently in stock - she would make a great addition to any holiday cards or December Daily this season.

Stickles- DiamondAntique Linen

The second card is so classy and chic. I love how Kim colored this stamp by La Land Craft stamps and added the scallops around her card base.

Spellbinders Tuck & Fold plus Some Odd Girl cards by Rhea & Marlena

 Hi everyone! Today we have a couple cards for you to inspire. 

The first one showcases the stunning Spellbinders tuck and fold dies. They make the most stunning elegant cards. Especially when Rhea sticks to a black and white palate. 

Just a little bit behind on shipping...

Please bear with me as a catch up at work. I have been on the very edge of my promised ship time of 3 business days because of the big Spellbinders preorder shipping. Then Friday morning, I ended up in the ER for the day because I passed out and hit my head at the vet when I found out my cat needed a leg amputation. While I was at the hospital, we decided that because of his age and the pain, recovery and the likely need for pain medication for quite a while, we decided to have him put to sleep. I am fine in general, but I am behind at work. I will be caught up in the next few days, so if you are waiting on an order from last week, look for a ship notice soon!

Meet our first Guest Designer - Grandma Bonnie!

Hi everyone! Today is very exciting - we have our very first guest designer joining us!
I just adore Bonnie. She's always got a kind word for fellow crafters and is always playing along in our challenges. It was a pleasure to ask her to be our very first guest designer and we're so happy she said yes! I asked her to tell us a little bit about herself:
My name is Bonnie (I am known on the web as Grandma Bonnie). I live in Indianapolis, IN. I am married to my best friend who is a retired chemical engineer.  I am a stay-at-home Grandma to four wonderful grandchildren. My grandchildren are 5 years old twin boys (one is non-verbal autistic), a 3 yrs old granddaughter, and a 1 yrs old boy. They all belong to my older daughter. I also have a younger daughter and a son, both married, but neither yet have children. I love to craft cards, scrapbook and sew. I am currently on five design teams, and I enjoy them so very much. They help me keep my creative juices flowing.
And for her first card, she created this awesome card using one of MY favorite stamp companies that 7 Kids College Fund carries, The Greeting Farm. Here she uses one of the brand new Big Time Anyas :
skin- YR000, 00, R14, 20
hair- Y11, 21, YR23
shirt- R39, RV69
pants- E74, 79
shoes- E79
present- G20, 21, 24
ribbon- YR20, 21 23
