Heartfelt Designers Ideas

Good morning Stampers!

Graduation  time is here !  Even though celebrations may be delayed it doesn’t stop us from making some cards to send to the graduates. Here a a few ready to go graduation cards that are available on the “Front Porch” if you need one in a hurry.   By the way – shopping on the Front Porch is becoming more popular…card kits, sentiment packs, cardstock and DSP coordinates, stamping supplies, special orders and more.  No traffic jams, always a parking spot, hourly shopping for social distancing. “Did you notice the sweet May Day basket fro Hive and Hollow?”  Be sure to set up an appointment.

Well my 2020-2021 new catalog arrived today!!!  Another great selection of 192 pages,  It is designed for beginner and casual stampers.  The mini catalogs are designed for the seasoned and avid stampers.   The lovely bundles and suites make it so hard to decide what to order.  I want it all! I fell in love with the Sunflower suite that shows off all the new in colors so perfectly.  Who wants to play with sunflowers at the June buffet?

FLOWERING FOILS DSP CHALLENGE; CLEARANCE AND a 2021-2022 catalog

Hello Stampers,

It seems strange not to be setting up for the April Buffet. In fact, everything seems strange including this massive snow storm on Easter Sunday that continued into the night with ice and snow covered streets!  We were so blessed by the Easter week services on line that kept us connected during this special double Passover/Easter time.

FLOWERING FOILS  from the Heartfelt Designer Team

I am so glad we decided to do a challenge for the month. Look at these beautiful entries that warmed my heart. Each participant was given a piece of Flowering Foils DSP that was a FREE SAB item and a piece of white cardstock.  There were no directions except to use the DSP to design their own cards. Here they are in numerical order and YOUR job is to respond with your first, second and third choice.  The winners will receive a gift from me.

Interested in Card Kits?

I had planned to have a kit for the Ornate Garden suite at the April Buffet…sorry no buffet today :{….then the idea came to me that you might like to work on a kit at home. So I’m turning these into kits to mail out to you.  …watch the next blog for details on how to get more.   I know some of you don’t have all the supplies you need at home to make cards…just let me know if you want a few kits mailed to you or some sentiments stamped, etc.

As I posted on our last blog, know that Gary and I miss you and continue to pray for you to live in Divine Health.  We encourage you to stay positive and uplifted during this unpredictable time.  “Stay off the news – its filled with the spirit of death…move to the light and the spirit of life…. jump into your crafts…make something delicious to eat and praise God for taking care of us.  After all,  He takes care of the birds…why not you???  Send a card to encourage someone today!”

Thanks for stopping by today.  May your day be filled with sunshine and peace.

Miss you all….

Sandi

PS:  I hope to hear from you and can’t wait to see which cards you select.  Remember that when you comment it really counts and I am appreciative.
