Mike's Menagerie

My animal theme coloring book will debut at Creation Destination October 21-23. Most of the pages are variations of my stamp images with a few new designs included. After the event it will be available on my catalog page. This was so much fun to put together!

Blog Candy!

Hi everybody,
Here's a little blog candy for you. It's my new Teapot stamp (check the catalog for a picture and a sample card). Just make a comment on this blog post and I will pick a name at random and send out my brand new stamp on Tuesday May 3. (this is a quick one because we are leaving for our Anniversary cruise in the Mediterranean on Thursday) Good luck!

Winter card challenge winners and Spring Challenge

Congratulations to Hetty Sanders, Laura Holm and Judy Smith for their beautiful and unique winter cards! Each of you will receive a vintage wood mounted Michael Strong Rubber Stamp as your thank you prize.
For our Springtime challenge I would like you to take inspiration for the photo below. This is a view from the famous Keukenhof Gardens in The Netherlands. Carla and I had the good fortune to visit the park on one of our trips to Holland. The floral beauty is overwhelming! Please consider the colors when you make your spring cards. Have fun and be creative!
