Canada & July 4th Printables, Stamp Samples, Linky Party & Giveaway Reminder July 2

Hi Everyone,

I have 2 great vintage printable images for you, a Canadian flag and some cute 4th of July kids - plus some fabulous new samples to share using our new Fairy, Pixie and Cutie Cat sets as well as French Mail and Garden Girl Stamps.  

**Note: This Monday, July 2 is our 4th Linky Party plus a Giveaway!

I'm leaving this morning with my 3 daughters on our annual road trip for a couple of days and Sunday is July 1st, Canada Day.  I've been trying to buy vintage patriotic Canadian images to make a stamp set but there isn't much of anything - so I made a vintage Canadian flag and then decided I needed to add a July 4th printable.   Sorry for the short notice.      Left click each image to make them big and right click to save to a picture file (for personal use only please).

I adore these sweet kids but their firecrackers were so big and they had a little rocket which I didn't think would be a great image for little kids to possibly see on a card or decoration so I cropped it and chopped the bottom off.  Cindy our graphic designer is a pro at this stuff but she wasn't here - so don't look too closely at my patchwork.

 Darlene Pavlick created some fun festive cards to celebrate the 4th using images from our Seasonal Booklet and you can see the other card on Darlene's Blog

Our Pixie Dust Stamps have arrived in our Shopatron and Etsy Store and check out these super adorable ATC cards that DT Member Pam Hooten created using  them and papers from CD #3!  You can see the details here on Pam's Blog and the supplies she used including a list of her Copic Markers.

Bev Cole already created a card with the Pixie  set she bought and it turned so cute with the little boy wearing the flower branch hat and glitter wings here in Bev's gallery

DT Alumni Member Tammy Roberts created this sweet shabby stitched card using our new Fairy Wishes Stamps and the fancy 'Fairy Wishes' lettering and poem from the set with a little fairy girl image from our Little Dolls Booklet and you can see the details here on Tammy's Blog

Our order of Cutie Cat Stamps should be here this coming week and I will post details on the other 2 sets Party Animals and Top Dog which are on order.  This set has 14 separate stamps and I was so happy when I tested the the drafts - they stamp so perfectly with fantastic detail!

We had some extra sets from the drafts sent and look at this adorable kitty card Bev Cole made and you can see other great Crafty Secrets cards in Bev's Gallery

I can't remember if I showed you this beautiful garden scene card the Sophie La Fontaine stamped with our Garden Girl Stamps but it so pretty and uses so many of the stamps I didn't want you to miss it.

DT Member Marilyn McIldoon made another cool button card, this time using our French Mail stamps.  It looks so stylish I bet she could go into the button business!

Look at this cute support card Cynthia Olheiser made for her sister who is moving.  She used an image from our Girlfriends Booklet and cut the mirror out and it looks great. 

Here are my girls from our past road trip in the hotel room.  I'm so glad I started our annual trip 5 years ago and I hope we will continue until I'm a little old lady. Traditions are what unite people.  I always plan a bunch of goofy games with prizes. Prizes includes $5.00 bills, magazines, scratch & win tickets and some wine and you would think they were playing for a million $$.  We eat at cheap places, stay up late talking and do a little shopping.  We were going to take the ferry to Vancouver Island but Scott bought 4 tickets at a silent auction to Ste. Michelle Winery east of Seattle and gifted them to our trip.

Our kitchen is getting close to being finished but to save money we are using a stain on our cupboards and it's the last part to finish. It's taken a couple of tries to get the color right but we should have dark oak cupboards next week instead of blonde oak.  I will post a bunch of photos and the tips & tricks we've learned.
This Monday, July 1st is our July Linky Party and I hope you will join in and post any sample you've made using any of our products!  You have all week to post and a winner will recieve a $50.00 CS Gift Certificate.  
Plus -  I will post our other animal stamp sets and do a Giveaway for all 3 sets! 
Until next time, wishing you joy & creativity
