Happy Monday Everyone!!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  We sure did.  Nicki did a beautiful job playing the piano in church for the prelude and postlude duet.  I was more nervous than she was!!  She looked like such a natural playing up there at age 11. I am so proud of her!!

Anywho... Today we have another great Stamp and Create Product Spotlight for you this week.
But before we get to that, just a reminder that Lacey will be on vacation until July 31st. Her husband is attempting to get stamp orders out, but since he's new at it, so not all orders will probably go out until after I return on Aug 2nd.  As an added bonus,however, all orders received from Friday, July 23rd-Aug 1st will be entered into a special drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate (this is separate from the regular July Customer Rewards drawing - so if you order during this time, you will actually be entered into both drawings)!!

This week's Product Spotlight is: Sweet November Stamps!! Amy Young has illustrated the most adorable mermaids and pixies!!
All Sweet November stamps will be on sale for 25% off through Sunday, August 1st.

   I used the Image Pearl Tidepool and Seamoor for her circle easel card. I also used the sentiment from Popcorn Bears Thanks A Bunch, Fancy Tags Nestabilities, Big Scalloped Ovals and blossoms nestabilities on my card all available at Stamp and Create. The dp is one of my faves from SU called Parisian Breeze.
