Last call for half price stamps

It seems quite a few of few love getting half-price stamps! (no surprise there!)
The "Enjoy Every Moment" set has been the most popular by far. You obviously all have good taste, because it's my favourite too ;o)
It's actually my go-to set when I need a quick masculine card. I just grab some stripey DSP, stamp "enjoy" on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, punch out "every moment" with a word window, and pop a button embellishment in the "o". Done, and in the mail!
I've made about a million variations of this card:

OK, maybe not a million...there aren't that many men in my life. I'm just hoping they don't realise that I'm sending out basically the same card each year. There's a good chance they won't, when they can't even see the butter in the fridge when it's right in front of them LOL
And just to show you it does great feminine cards too:...and it's great for scrapbooking too (ahem, no pic of that one...)

Deal of the Week #3 finishes today. I'll be placing my last orders tonight, so let me know by 9pm if you would like to take advantage of this special offer!

Karen reminded me that I never told you how I made the little heart on the Pink Flamingo card. I used the Trio Flower punch. The top of the heart is 2 petals, and I just snipped down in a "V". Easy, huh? You can get all different sized hearts using flower and scallop punches! It's a handy trick to have up your sleeve.

Thanks for the reminder Karen, and I'm so glad you're about to get back into blogging (just putting it in writing, in public, so you can't get out of it!)

Thanks for all your lovely comments on my published work. As some of you guessed, my favourite is the blue card....mainly just due to the colours. I can't go past Baja Breeze!


  1. Ha Ha! You are such a cheeky little monkey Marelle!!

    Just love the cards you made with this set. Into my to CASE folder they go!


  2. These are lovely cards Marelle, and I am one of the lucky ones who has just bought that set as well. Waiting for it to arrive as I type this.
