Happy Saturday, and welcome to day 3 of The Craft's Meow Sneak Peek!


I have another fabulous set to preview for you today. This set, "Telegram" is designed by the amazing Nina Brackett of Nina B. Designs! It's always fun to see what Nina's new designs are! She never seems to run out of ideas, and I love her sets that take us down memory lane, like this one today does.


Oh my goodness - there are so many possibilites with "Telegram". The set includes many sentiments, as well as several images. Again, the stamps work like a dream - the ink covers beautifully, and clean up so easily.


Here is my card:


This was a lot of fun to work with - it got me outside of the 'cutesy' box that I seem to have been in for a while, and mussing it up a bit was fun too! After I had adhered the two pieces on the front, I realized that I had forgotten to distress their edges like I did the DP background. Sigh.... sometimes I think I'd forget who I was if I couldn't refer to my driver's license - lol!!!


Hurry over to The Craft's Meow, to see who else has previews for you today! I know you won't be disappointed! Don't forget to leave comments! One lucky person who comments on The Craft's Meow blog will win this set! Woot woot for FREE stamps!


Have a great weekend!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

Supplies: DP: Tim Holtz Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink Crocheted Trim: from my stash Buttons: Grandma's button jar Hand: The Red Rooster, Farmington, Mo.

  8. If I remember right, the class I took with you, you said, "I like to dirty the edges a lot, some people don't." Well, something close to that and that's when I tried it and I love it! Although I haven't been doing much of it lately either. Keep cool, you may be retired but pray this heat wave breaks before kids get back to school and look forward to recess time!
