Today we are introducing...
The southwestern theme is cool no matter where you live.  A ton of people visit the southwest every year and snowbirds have an appreciation for our beautiful winters.  Look out, summer is on it's way!  Have any of you visited the Grand Canyon?
Southwestern Charm


Southwest Icons dies

Sometimes you just need a cactus or hot pepper shape...

Desert Icons dies


I used the double sided sticky tape by Xyron to add some sparkle to my card.  The glitter resembles sand in real life :)  I popped up the kokopelli, the left cactus and sentiment.  The stamp set comes with three tiny dots...I used them to add prickers to my cactus.

FYI - our June guest designer search begins on May 8th.
Brushing one’s teeth wasn’t popular in America until after World War II, when soldiers, ordered to brush teeth, brought home their enforced habit.

smooches!

  16. I know this probably sounds odd, but I am so glad you're coming out with a die that spells the whole word "Congratulations". I am not a big fan of the "Congrats" phrase, which seems to be the trend right now. Thank you!
