Love Giveaway, Linky Winner, New Samples and Digital Stamp Sets

Hi Everyone,  *** I need to come back and add all the links later as my dad is in so much pain I need to take him to emergency.  UPDATE: Sadly, he passed away peacefully at the hospital tonight. 

We have a Giveaway for Digital Love/Valentine Package which is also on special for $21.50 and you can save over $10.00. To enter to WIN all these items just leave a comment here and a random.org winner will be announced on Monday

Congratulations to our January Linky Party Winner , # 1 Jo Willis from the UK and a big thank you to everyone who entered all the fabulous samples and received a $6.00 coupon.

Did you get our Free Valentine Printable with '10 Things I Love About' last year? This is a cute layout Cindy van Koll created for my niece using the list with paper and images from our Valentine Kit. It's actually Arissa's 4th birthday today and I'm having a family pizza party here tonight for her.


With Christmas over, our Design Team ladies are getting in the mood for Valentines and Spring so you will be seeing a bunch of great new samples popping up and new specials like our new Free Digital Download Chandelier Fun you can add to your basket with any purchase and it comes with the sample Idea Sheet.

 DT Leader Kathy Clement used our Digital Heart to Heart Stamps to create this pretty layered card


Kathy also made this cool embossed card for her challenge with Really Reasonable Ribbon using a Tattered Angels Jumbo 12" x 12" Stamp Set on special for $8.50!
  I bought a skid of 600 of these stamp sets when they discontinued all the 'extra' products and it's a great set as the back sheet works as the stamp block to hold the stamps.  Just cut around each design.


Lovely birthday card Vicki made for her sister using our CD 2 Creating With Vintage Illustrations



Great Snow Girl card by Michele Kovack using Winter Wishes


 Elizabeth Lincoln these pink  support cards for her friends who just got diagnosed with breast cancer using our Support the Girls Digital Set.  Sadly, it seems to be growing much more common. Thank goodness the cure rate has improved


 I also adore this cute mouse card Elizabeth made for a sick child in a card group she belongs to.  The little girl loves animals and this should make her smile using digital stamp sets Cutie Cats (mouse) and Sweet Stuff  Digital set for the cupcake


 UPDATE: I've come back and finished adding all the links and the 4 new Digital Stamp Sets. 

This is our free Chandelier Fun Digital set  with any order until end of January, just add it to your cart You can also see samples with the links to  Sew Special Digital Set  ,  Sing For Joy , and Home Sweet Home

Sadly my dad did pass away tonight. My mom and dad have a suite downstairs (with us  for over 25 years) and he felt so sick I was going to take him to Emergency this afternoon and realized he was too weak for me to get him in the car by myself so I called an ambulance and while we were waiting it seemed like he had a stroke. They intubated him and he was on life support until this evening and my mom had them take the tube out he passed away peacefully within a few minutes. All our family was there with him when he passed but I came back here to stay with my niece and nephew (my mom baby sits them during day).

His health had really declined since Sept and he stopped driving but he did celebrate his 85th birthday with all his family and close friends here and his favorite foods – Kentucky Fried chicken and my mom’s trifle. It’s such a drag that it happened on my niece Arissa’s birthday as she turned 4 today and I had a family pizza party planned here for her. I still had everyone over after they came back from the hospital. Her Grandpa would have wanted that as he watched Arissa help Grandma bake the cake and cupcakes yesterday and knew how excited she was. 




Thanks so much to everyone for your kind words, prayers and condolences to our family.   

Please don't let this stop you from entering our Love Giveaway!

Sandy, my heart goes out to you and your family for your loss. My father passed away over two years ago and there isn't a day that I don't miss him or wish he were around to talk to. It's a tough thing to get thru....

Your niece is a little doll and hope that she enjoyed her birthday. The card samples are TERRIFIC!

Hoping 2014 gets easier for you.
