$50 Gift Certificate Winner

Thank you all so much for you patience during my move.

It was a little harder than I expected since the kids were off of school for 2 weeks!! I would have gotten a LOT more done if they weren't home the whole time.
Now, I love my kids to death, but it's hard to keep them occupied and out of the way for so long (especially with no TV or internet for a while)!!

Anyway, it's back to business as usual now.
All orders have shipped out and we are back to a normal shipping schedule.

The winner of the $50 Gift Certificate
(for orders of $25 or more placed during March 9th-19th) is...

Claudine Gendron of Quebec, Canada

I have emailed you a gift certificate for your next purchase!!

If you would like another chance to win a gift certificate to Stamp and Create, come join us for our challenges at the Store blog!!

Product Spotlight-Sports Theme

Welcome back to Stamp and Create.

After today I should have all of the orders caught up from my move 2 weeks ago. It may take a few more days to get the rest of the adjustments done, so please be patient with me.

Over the weekend, I received a restock order of the newest Stampavie release...
Including some older designs as well such as this cutie...
And now I'm glad to announce that we have a new Product Spotlight this week!!

This week, all stamps in the Sport Category
will be on sale 25% off through Sunday
(excluding the digis since that is a fundraiser).

The awesome Design Team has created some wonderful cards for your inspiration using some of the stamps on sale this week...

Lacey used Football Crazy by Popcorn Bear paired with some October Afternoon Thrift Shop DP.

Chris used Slam Dunk from Wags n Whiskers for her creation. She also used the Whimsy Birthday Wish List stamp for the front of her card. For the inside of her card she used the Whimsy Balloon sentiments designed by Raindrop Echo Designs and the Balloon Shapeology die.

Joy used TGF set called: Later Sk8er, the sentiment comes with that set too. She used Basic Grey - Pyrus, her border punch and some dyed seam binding for her ribbon.

Vicky has made a pop up card using Go for Goal by Wags and Whiskers. The papers are Basic Grey Granola. The shape has been cut out using Nestabilies label 3 and has added basic grey pearls in indigo/sky.

Heidi used High Hopes Ski Bum, Basic Grey Half Pearls, Stickles, and the Bow Easy.

Happy stamping and shopping!!

Dragon Digis for the Pray for Luke Fundraiser

Welcome back to Stamp and Create!

I'm so excited and honored that the super talented artist Dustin Pike (one of the artists for High Hopes Rubber stamps) has donated these awesome Dragon digital stamps to the Pray for Luke Fundraiser!!

I've always been in love with Dustin's dragons. So I was thrilled when he agreed to create some for Luke! Luke loves Star Wars, Super Heros, plays soccer and violin.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Luke, he was my son's best friend when we lived in the Jacksonville, Florida area. On New Year's Eve, Luke suffered a 30 minute seizure caused from Spinal Meningitis. Luke has been in the hospital since New Year's Eve and he has a LONG road of recovery ahead of him.

Luke still has encephalitis (swelling on the brain), he can not sit up on his own, walk, or talk.

On Sunday March 6th, Luke will be transferred to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for additional treatment.

I am selling these Digital stamps to help raise money for Luke's medical and travel expenses.

You can read Luke's complete story on his Blog here.

Last year Luke was able to play the violin for the former First Lady Mrs. Bush during a fundraiser in Jacksonville...
(Luke is the small blonde in the front)
And yesterday, Luke received a surprise visit from former President George W Bush!!...
How awesome is that?
President Bush was at the Hospital for a Fundraiser and was able to visit 3 patients!

I had to use one of these adorable dragons right away!!

If you would like to help Luke and his family, you can purchase the stamps here.

I also have the new Greeting Farm stamps loaded in the store now...
Happy stamping and shopping!!
