Thinking of You – by Heidi Blankenship

Heidi’s card today is so very soft and serene — it truly captured my heart. Heidi used my go-to sympathy stamp set by JustRite, With Sympathy. Heidi’s card would make a beautiful and soothing sympathy card, but it works equally as well as a “Thinking of You” card, whatever the circumstance. And Heidi’s layering of die cut shapes on today’s card is FABULOUS! She used three separate die sets that work together like it was meant to be — such a beautiful pairing of dies. These are all Spellbinders dies from their NEW CHA Winter 2014 release. These sets are not yet available, but they are listed in the store as PRE-ORDER sets. They’ll be here by the mid to end of March.

And how do we handle PRE-ORDERS? Just add any pre-order item to your regular order of in-stock items, your order ships out to you promptly, minus the pre-order items, which will be mailed to you immediately upon receipt. This guarantees you will be first in line to receive the NEW sets once they become available. Can’t get any easier! And we’ll keep you posted when the dies arrive and are shipped out to you. Find all Spellbinders PRE-ORDER sets here. And yes, so sorry, but only a fraction are listed at the present time, but more are coming. They are being added as times permits. If there’s a set you want and it isn’t listed yet, just shoot me an email or leave a comment below. I can add it to the store right away so you can get it included on your order. OH, and yes, ALL PRE-ORDERS are being listed at 10% OFF. Can’t beat that! It’s our little “thank you” to you for ordering early!

Well, we got off track — lets get back to Heidi’s card for today. I know you’ll love it just as much as I do:


How very beautiful! It is so soothing and comforting.
