BEWARE! (Clear & Simple Stamps Debut)...

to view an image up-close, please click on the photo


It's the first of October, which means two big things! The first is that today marks my official debut as a designer for Clear & Simple Stamps and I'm so excited. The second is that the first of the month also means a new Stamp of the Month {SOTM} from CSS! And, this one is absolutely fabulous for the upcoming Halloween holiday. It's called Beware -- be careful, this one's addictive!


This month's Color Story is Creamsicle Cardigan, perfect for Halloween, and coordinates buttons, paper, ribbon, ink, and a Copic trio of markers. For a $1 discount on Beware, enter code CSS1010 at checkout! Thanks for stopping by for my big debut, and I hope you have a spookily delicious day!
