Putting out the shingle: We’re Open!

Hey everybody! I come bearing stamps. The kind of stamps that make creativity bubble up inside you and make you feel a bit woozy! (or so I’ve been hearing...) Hope you’ll come and see what we have in store for you—the premiere of the Power Poppy stamp collection, made from the highest quality, clear photopolymer. Giddy? Ohhhh, yeah. Join the club!

But wait! There’s more. I am so very, VERY grateful to these incredible women, whose hearts and talents go above and beyond my wildest dreams. The Bloom Brigade design team has created *one more* surprise to share with you today (can you believe?!!)... and we have another treat, we are joined in our final release POWER POPPY HOP with a special guest! STOKED to have Dina Kowal sharing her creativity on our opening day.

I hope you’ll come hop with us, today’s cards by the Bloom Brigade are not to be missed!!

As my shop launch coincides with the first of April, a quote from poet Edna St. Vincent Millay springs to mind:

“April comes like an idiot, babbling and strewing flowers.”

Hey... I resemble that statement! Thank you all so much for traveling along this path with us. I can’t wait to dig in!

I am busy trying to complete a self challenge of my own--stamping 100 cards in 100 days. I am down to the last 20, and part of my challenge is to use stamps and paper I have in my stash. Of course, many of the stamps I have stashed are your wonderful designs. So, to help me bide my time until my new sets come, I am making my last cards with the florals I have of yours that are already part of my collection. Love your work, and am so happy about your grand opening.
