FMS #100: Times Square Takes Flight


One of my favorite memories when I was stationed at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey… was riding the train to Penn Station in New York.  I used to love the 45 minute ride taking in the scenery and enjoying the skyline of New York City.

Thanks to Stampin' Up! they brought those sweet memories back to life with the Soho Designer Series Paper.  I absolutely am in love with every single side of the 12 designs.

Today's card is brought to you by the first-ever sketch for Freshly Made Sketches that debuted almost two years ago, on September 7, 2011.  The sketch was designed by the incredibly talented creator of the Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog, Lesley Croghan.  Congratulations FMS!


Have you heard of our Undefined Stamp Carving Kit?  Have you ever wanted a stamp but couldn't find the perfect image?   Maybe you have a special family logo or a sketch you'd like to have as a stamp.  Well, now you can!  The Undefined is a Stampin' Up! stamp carving product line.  You define the rubber stamp anyway you want.  See the video below and order yours today!



Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and sharing the love.  For those that live in Solano County… I will begin monthly stamp camps as soon as I get home.  I'm designing cards right now, so I can hit the ground running.  I'm so excited about it and I look forward to seeing and meeting those of you who have shown interest.

Your comments are warmly welcomed…. please share what memories you have from a place you once visited or lived? I love hearing your stories.  Have a fabulous Saturday!
