So far the mail count for funny Mom's Day cards from offspring #3. my daughter Amy, is 4. Each card is funnier than the next. I have been receiving them each day this week and it is really fun to think of her in the card shop opening them and laughing while standing in the aisle all by herself. Or picture this...a whole bunch of random people looking at cards and each laughing alone.
Then today, along with silly (but loved) greeting cards was a nice, thick manilla envelope all the way from Chittaway Bay, Australia. It was from my friend Rachel Grieg, the extraordinary photographer and owner of Darkroom Door. Rachel sent me a sampling of her product line goodies. There are PhotoBooth pictures, filmstrip photos, "photochips" (small 3x3 photos) and Montage, her travel photos, all on sturdy cardstock that can be altered, sanded and placed in artwork. In the flyer she sent, there are also unmounted rubber stamps and a floral collection. Everything is beautifully done. Note the wonderful handmade card she sent me too!
As if that isn't enough, she also sent an Australian stamping magazine, Stamping & Papercraft.
Inside, much to my delight, was a stamping challenge using a Stampers Anonymous stamp that I designed!
The stamp is Newsy Leaf K1-1113 and is part of a small collection I did about a year ago and includes Newsy Bird and Wordy Woman. (Page 128 in the online and paper catalog). These have always been among my favorite that I have done for SA. All the words on these three stamps are pieced together from other SA text stamps. They were fun to make and fun to use.
Your "green" comments were very interesting. Thanks for the public and private posts!
