Angela's Happy Stamper
Greetings, friends!

I know you will find this shocking, but it's HOT here!  What better way to spend these hazy, humid summer days than inside....stamping!  And, if you're tired of staring at your four walls, come stamp with us!  Our A/C is working and we have lots of classes and things to do upcoming.  So join us!

Perhaps you've heard of the CHA trade shows.  They take place twice a year, and vendors come up with all kinds of new stamps, paper and accessories to display and promote at these shows.  Summer CHA ends today, and we've had our "spies" there placing lots of orders for us!  We're excited about the new products from Ranger, including mini sets of Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Paints and her Black Gesso, and Hero Art's new collaboration with Sizzix - stamps with dies to match!  In order to make room for all of this new product that is on the way, we're having a surprise sale Friday and Saturday, July 22 and 23 only.  Here are the details:

Operation We R Grateful!

Operation Write HomeWe R Memory Keepers (the makers of Crop-a-Dile) is sponsoring a card contest to benefit Operation Write Home.  This organization collects cards to send to troops stationed all over the world to send home to their family.  We are thrilled to serve as a Drop Zone for this contest.  Here are the details:  Drop off your handmade cards by July 31.  Don't use glitter (it can make the troops visible at night).  Line the inside of dark cards with a light paper to make writing easier.  Include an envelope.  On the back of the card, write Operation Write Home.  Fill out an entry form at the shop for us to include with your cards.  Cards must fall into one of the following categories:  Love (Anniversary/Missing You/Thinking of You), Any Hero, Thank you, Birthday, Holiday or Get Well.  Only one form per category per person is required.  We R Memory Keepers will choose several winners for fabulous prizes from all of the entries.  Plus, if our store collects the most cards, we will win prizes we can give away as well, including a crafting cruise for one of our customers!  Wow!  Visit their website for more details, and start dropping off those cards!
