Just a Reminder...

As we get closer the holiday weekend, we wanted to remind everyone that we will be closed on Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th! We are looking forward to a fun weekend of cookouts and fireworks! So with that said-if you need anything be sure to stop in by Friday.
We are getting geared up for A Muse A Palooza- we can't wait to share the new images with you! Here are some adorable winter cards that are similar to the ones you'll be creating in some of the classes BUT, these are not the new images! I can just see the new ones working perfectly with these cards... Sherry has some amazing classes lined up for this event. So many great ideas rolled into one day!
A Muse makes small stamp images, perfect for customizing your own little scenes, creating simple and easy cards or cute tags. The images are small enough to create your own backgrounds too. And they are big enough to color in and decorate with glitter and more.
They have the cutest stamps-I love them all! They go great with a variety of punches too..

I also wanted to share some summer cards that Sher made using A Muse stamps-LOVE them! We have all of the stamps to get you started for these cards as well! Oh, and the papers too!

There will be crop this Friday the 3rd at 9:30 am.
