Anything is Possible!


 I love this saying, don't you?  I was blessed to grow up in a family who encouraged and supported me, no matter what the obstacle.   We heard about the "Little Engine that Could" more times than I can count.  Thanks Mom, it is a gift beyond measure to have someone believe in you and learn that Anything is Possible.

Close to my Heart, Clearly the Best!

I have had some questions about how to use this set Just for You.  I hope the illustration below will help.  Clear stamps and blocks make things amazingly easy and placement of one image over another is a breeze.  I was even able to use this set without the ole magnifying "reader glasses".  This set comes with 3 different style's of petal's or "quilt pieces" that can be mixed and matched or you can use all of the same pattern if you wish.  Possibilities are endless.  Please let me know if I can help in any way.  Have an awesome stamping day.
