Happy Birthday Pardner!!!


I have had SO many people email me and ask about this particular stamp.....my Magenta Horsie!! Isn't he just so cute??? Well I have some good news!!

Yesterday was my day off and of course, I made a trip to my favourite stamp store, Stamp Art!! I picked up some great new stamps by Inkadinkadoo for Hallowe'en and Thanksgiving and got some adorable new winter Hedgehog stamps by Penny Black!! I can't wait to play with them and share them with you! And the coolest thing happened while I was in there shopping with Emileigh!! A lady came over to me and said, 'Excuse me, are you Kim Reid?' and I said 'Yes.' and she said 'Oh I recognized you from your blog!!!!!!!!!!!!' Like how cool is that?? Apparently we have been in a few swaps together and she visits my blog......hi Mary Beth!! I sometimes can't get over the effects of the internet! I've 'met' so many wonderful people through stamping and I feel like we're all truly friends!! Do I sound like a sap??

Anyway.....on to the good news!! I was chit chatting with the owner of Stamp Art, Nancy Kleiber and I was mentioning about my Horsie stamp. Well, Nancy carries SO many lines of stamps in her store.....just take a look at the pics on her website. She has Hero Arts, Stampendous, My Favourite Things, Anna Griffin, Penny Black, Hero Arts, Memory Box, and the list goes ON!! Well, she also carries Magenta who makes my Horsie stamp, my Kangaroo stamp and many other gorgeous designs. Well, Nancy told me yesterday that although she doesn't have an online shopping cart system on her website, she does do mail orders!! All you have to do is email her what you are looking for and she will get it all packaged up and send it out to you!! AND she only charges exact shipping, no packaging or handling fees!! How great is that?!! Now she doesn't have the Horsie stamp in right now but will be ordering soon and you can email her to preorder right now!! Her email address and phone number are right on the website and she is a wonderful lady to work with!!

I was in there yesterday and I did see one or two of the Kangaroo stamps, I saw many adorable Penny Blacks (you know they are my favourites), remember those adorable little Snowmen I played with a week or so ago? Well they are a clear set of stamps and she has them in stock. She has lots of My Favourite Things sets........I know I saw some of the Penguin ones I LOVE!! And that's just the stamps!! She also has punches and adhesives and Sakura gel pens (I lovey them!), she has inks and stickles and so much more! If you are looking for something....just ask Nancy!!

So here is a new card made with the famous Horsie stamp!! I made this one especially for my nephew who's birthday is next week! I just got the new Outlaw papers from Stampin' UP so I thought they would go perfectly with this stamp for a western themed card!! I stamped my Horsie in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink (Nancy's got that too) on shimmery white paper and coloured him in with my SU markers. I sponged around the edge with Walnut Stain distress ink and mounted it on Really Rust, Sage Shadow and Chocolate Chip cardstocks. The card base is CChip with Very Vanilla and the star patterned dp from the Outlaw series. I added the square antique bronze brads in each corner, then added a strip of the lovely striped patterned paper with two lots of linen thread. For the sentiment I used happy and birthday from my Everyday Flexible Phrases by SU in the corner of the main image and then I stamped 'pardner' using my Karen Foster Snap Stamps on a separate strip of Very Vanilla. The star is made using a piece of chipboard and layering some Outlaw pp on top and distressing the edges. I of course, pop dotted the horsie part and there ya have it.

So if you would like to preorder this Horsie stamp or are looking for anything else in particular, just head on over to Stamp Art and tell Nancy that Kimmie sent ya!!

Have a wonderful Friday!! Oh and hey, I have some exciting news coming up next week, so stay tuned!!! *giggle*
