Happy New Year!!! Welcome to the first blog hop of 2013! We are so excited to share the great stamp sets we are releasing this month and the months to come.
The mini stamp set we have for you this month is
"Not So Ugly"
I like the clock in this set. It made me think of my grandfather. He jokes about people not wanting to visit him because he has ticks. He has several clocks in each room that he has set several mins. apart so that he can enjoy them. As kids we loved hearing the coo-coo clock. The sentiment from this set saying "It's about TIME" and "Congratulations" was perfect for this project that I am sending to my cousin and her husband. They have been waiting to adopt for over 3 years. They found out this last week that the waiting so long was in part to a person not doing their job and just sticking their paperwork in her drawer. The agency didn't find out until the lady was fired. So my cousin and her husband went to a new agency. They filled out more paperwork and expected to wait a long time again. They got a call Wednesday that said that there was a baby who had been born the previous Sunday and if they wanted him they could take him home on Thursday. It had to be because it was in God's TIME. On their facebook page announcing the birth, one of their friends congratulated them on their "POPCORN" baby. Remember making popcorn the old fashioned way not in the microwave... you would wait and wait and then SUDDENLY - POP. When I read that about the popcorn baby, I knew right away what I was going to do. I was going to wrap a package of popcorn. I stamped the "CONGRATULATIONS" all over the dp. I sewed my main panel to the dp and wrapped it around the popcorn.
