Hello Stamping Friends!

We're looking forward to some nicer weather here this week – there's actually some  daffodils blooming – finally! – and my lilac tree is in bud 🙂  It's actaully looking like Spring, believe it or not!

I've been busy with classes, lately – thank you to all who have been attending! – and of course my SPCA fundraiser – a huge thank you to all who supported that!  I had a delighted call from the coordinator at the Vancouver SPCA when she received the donations – needless to say, every dollar counts, and the $153.60 donated was very well received! 🙂 

I'm so looking forward to this Friday's 'Hop into Easter' class, where we'll be making 2 cards, and 2 treat holders!  You'll be able to see what we're making if you come back and check out my post on Thursday night – that's right, the night before class – as I'll be featuring some of the class projects in our newest April Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop!  The Hop will run from Thursday night 6:00 pm through Saturday.  Of course, the projects will still remain on the 12 participating blogs afterwards, but they'll be on the front pages Thursday through Saturday 🙂

Next I'll be holding a 'Mom's the Word' class for Mother's Day on April 25th.  I'm super excited to be starting a Technique club starting May 23rd – I'm calling it Technique Junquies 'Funky Fridays'!  There's still limited space available – act soon!

Be sure to check out my Calendar and Class Schedule page (click on the banner at the top of this page) for all the details and registration dates.  You'll want to make to reserve your spot early!

Stampin' Up! has some awesome products on special for this week's Weekly Deals – have a look!


Can you believe that in less than 2 months, the new Annual Catalogue will be out?!!  Of course, before that happens, Stampin' Up! will be releasing the 'Retiring' list – of stamp sets, colours, inks, ribbons, cardstock, designer papers, embellishments, dies, punches, etc. – anything that will not be available after June 1st! 

So keep your eyes peeled – I'll be sharing the list with everyone on my mailing list, and  posting it here on my blog on April 21st – that's when it'll be released!  Everything on the list except for stamp sets will be 'available while supplies last' only – that means get 'em fast, before they're gone!  If you want to be one of the 1st to receive the list, either enter your information by clicking on 'subscribe', or send me a quick email with your contact info, and I'll add you to my email list. 🙂  debsmart@shaw.ca

Until next time – Happy Stamping!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
