I bought some lovely cardinal stamps by Heartfelt Creations. When I received them, I learned that they make dies to cut out the cardinals. However, no one had them in stock. They may have been discontinued. I finally found some at another online store and ordered them. Before I received the dies, I stamped and colored the images with Prismacolor pencils. I'll work with dies later.
Operation Write Home has a request for more thank you cards for our deployed troops. They like to thank those who send them care packages.
