(bowing down you are the Woman you are the Woman!!!) OHHHH I have to try I HAVE TO TRY...

K. Thomas

This is absolutely awesome! I have the carousel notes sitting here and I haven't attempted anything with them yet. Thank you for sharing this!!


OH MY GOD! I LOVE IT! Gosh Jan I check your blog everyday and I just love your work and you are just too funny. You always make me laugh. Thank you for sharing YOU.

Hey, is there anyway to search your blog for specifics? I mean, I was looking for sunflower stamps or ideas today and I couldn't find a way to search your blog. It didn't have to be a sunflower stamp specifically, but a faux one or just something in the realm. I was able to do a search on another blog and found the Serene Sunflowers stamp. Maybe now I'll just alter another flower stamp to look like a sunflower.

Just thought I'd ask in case anyone else wanted to do a search on a specific stamp set as well.

Have a great weekend!


OMG shut up, this is BRILLIANT. OMG. OMG. OMG.


WOW - LOVE this! You are truly amazing, so creative, so giving sharing with us all the time. You ROCK!
