March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring March's SOTM, which is Potential, a set of 8 stamps. This set has some wonderful flourishes and sayings.  I really enjoyed using this stamp set. Two stamps have a coordinating Cricut shape, which I love. It is just a great all around set.

I've Got Mail

WooHoo..I have started receiving my swaps from the International Mixed Media Postcard Swap.  I just have to share the amazing pieces of art I have received so far. 
This one was made by Jenna Kannas.  I love the the bright cheerful colors and she encased it in a plastice clever. I have not cut open the envelope yet..I am hesitant to open the picture really does not so how pretty this is..I will have to get another picture when I open it.  It says "May your dreams be BIG and VIBRANT!"  Love it!!!
Here it is "unwrapped" It was hard to cut that cute envelope open but I did it carefully so I can put it back in;)  It is glittery so the picture still has somewhat of a will just have to come and see it in person! 

This card was made by Cindy McMath.  Another amazing colorful card.  I love the saying "Strange is beautiful"...I totally agree;)

This card was made by Marie Z. Johansen.  The detail on this card is amazing and the saying is another winner in my book  "We are all just a little cracked"

Thank you ladies...I am in awe of your talent!!!!  I am so thankful I entered this swap. I will post more when I receive them.

So, I am a bit (well maybe more than a bit) technically challenged, but I am going to try pinning this picture to Facebook buddy Lisa has given me some instructions (written) and being a visual person written instructions sometimes throw me!!!!  So here picture is of our dear sweet CUTE Charley when he was a younger pup..he like myself is a bit "fluffier" now, but still cuter than a bug's ear;)

Thanks for hopping by......I did it!!!!!  Thank you Lisa Pierce, Queen of all things technical:)
