Good morning, good morning, good morning.......

my sweet stamping friends!!  I have a very special post for you all today and I can't hardly wait to share with you. You  probably know Lisa Hjulberg, right? Well, today at 8:00 AM Pacific Time sharp, Lisa is opening the doors to her online shop The Craft's Meow....YEAH!!!!

Important update:  The store will not open until 12:00 PM today, some technical difficulties have come up, so please be patient!!!!


So, to make a long story short, when it came to the point where Lisa was looking for some of her friends to make a card or two for her Grand Opening, I jumped right on it. Lisa was kind enough to send me a couple of her awesome stamps and this right here is what I came up with. The first one is called "Friend of Mine" and was designed, just for Lisa by Claire Brennan the owner and illustrator of Waltzing Mouse stamps, how cool is that?  Have a look and see
