Where does the time go? Today is Day 4 for the Clear Dollar Stamps December sneak peeks and the last day of the month which means that first thing tomorrow all of today's and the previous stamps seen will be available for purchase. Plus, who knows what other neat products will be in with the new release stamps.
Just life stuff below (in purple) ... I won't feel bad if you just skip...
Here is some personal stuff to share too... this is going to be a busy week for us. We are expecting a call from the Dr.'s office today with a date within the next day or two to get Nate in to see Orthopedics for his broken arm. I will feel so much better after we get the cast on and then can just wait for him to heal. Tomorrow is Hunter's 10th birthday - yikes... 2 digits already. I need to squeeze in his birthday cake at some point. He would like to go to IHOP to have breakfast for dinner so we will hopefully do that tomorrow night. Then he has a BIG allergy skin test scheduled for Wednesday... not so fun for him. He had it done when he was 5 and we are doing it again and from there doing a consult to figure out the next plan of action. We are considering allergy shots aka immunotherapy, but it is a 5 year commitment with substantial time consumption at the very beginning. From the paperwork we were given it is weekly shots for at least 6-8 months. That just makes me tired thinking about that as well as for the poor kid, but I think its also supposed to be fairly successful which would make Hunter's like much easier to deal with as an adult. Then Thursday we are taking him and a few of his friends bowling right after school with pizza to follow and then our week should be just about over :)
Now, on for the "real" purpose of this post. Today's stamps being "snuck" are :
The Cross, Petite Cross, Happy Rainbow, God always keeps promises (sentiment), Patchpal Angel, Patch Star, Patch Heart, you're an angel (sentiment), Alien Fred, I'm an alien and my planet is heaven (sentiment), Alien Bob, Oliver Ostrich, its been a long time (sentiment), Critter Log - December Stamp of the Month
Remember, check out Lori's blog - Clearly iStamp for additional samples and full reveals.
So lets get started with this cute Stocking that I made. I used the Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge to cut out my stocking pieces. I then used my scor-pal to create the "patchwork" on the front. I stamped the Patch Star and Patch Heart for my background and then inked it all up after I colored the images with Copics. I sewed both pieces together in order to have my pocket. Then I stamped the Patchpal Angel and used her and the coordinating sentiment as a tag for my stocking.
My next sneak, I snuck in yesterday (shh... don't remind anybody) with the refrigerator magnets. Here they are again.
My next stamp is Oliver Ostrich and his coordinating sentiment. I love these bright and bold colors... thanks Laurie.
And finally, my last card is using a stamp from the set called Critter Log which is the December Stamp of the month. Now get this part! As a wonderful holiday treat, Lori is offering up this little bad boy up FREE with a purchase of only $30 versus the normal $50. Take advantage of this deal... I truly love all my SOM's and go back to them as often as I can. Plus, I always am disappointed when I see someone else use one that I don't have :(
Its always a bit sad to finish up with the sneak peeks, but great news for you since you will be able to get them in your hot little hands very, very soon!
Thanks so much for hanging with me and I hope you have a fabulous Monday, but don't forget to go visit these lovely ladies for even more peeks.
