Message from Bonnie

I hope all of you stampers are having a great summer. Some of you are probably stamping your hearts out
and others are busy with different things. Whatever you're doing - Enjoy!

We currently have several of the large awesome "Mistis" in stock. This tool helps you to not "mess up" on your
sentiments any more! The Misti can be restamped in the exact same place. Adding shading and extra color to
your stamp is another job the Misti does well. Come in and take a look for yourself.

Our next class coming up is called Fun Summer Cards. Along with this class we w!ll be using bright vibrant
colors. Wear old clothes and a smile. We'll provide the FUN!
