Where has time gone?

Summers are so busy for everyone, but oh what a summer we are having here in Southern Ontario.  And although I am not a huge fan of humidity I can manage well enough.  My Mom just got back from a trip to Eastern Canada, where it rained most days and a warm day of her 3 week stay was a balmy 16 degrees Celsius!  Now that is a bit chilly for summer time temps. 

We have just received a small order of House Mouse stamps and the new cutting dies are here as well.  These are some of the nicest dies we have seen in awhile.  They look rather flimsy in the package but don't let that fool you.  They are good and sturdy.

 Although it is an extra expense, the optional metal cutting plate adapter is well worth the money.  Some of the most intricate dies that were difficult to remove, popped right out when we used the plate.  I will be trying it with my Spellbinder Fleur de Lis that gave me fits when I was using it.

Lily Pad Challenge & Interview

Our sponsor challenge on the Lily Pad website has been posted.  It has been so much fun to see what those talented ladies have done with our stamps.  Be sure to click on the links to see the "how tos" on each of the cards presented.  I must admit I love seeing Rosewood stamps being used by artists in Sweden and Greece. 

Rose-Marie provided Lily Pad with an interview of sorts as well.  For those of you who don't know much about us, it was a great interview that will offer a bit of insight on how Frog's Whiskers Ink came to be the store you know and love.

Check out the Lily Pad website.  Have a look around while you are there.  They have a great website full of inspiration.

Frog`s Whiskers Ink will be sponsoring a challenge on the Lily Pad Cards website, beginning next week. We can`t wait to see what this talented group of designers are going to make with our stamps. Since their official spokesman is Frederick DuPonde, shown below,

you can see why it was an easy decision for us to sign up to sponsor this challenge. Somethings are just meant to be.

Beyond that bit of publicity, those gals have some really great stuff on their blog. Be sure to check them out.
