Day 4 of our Put your Stamp on it with Red Rooster as our Sponsor...

WELCOME BACK, trust you all had a delightful weekend...
We shall continue with our STAMP CREATORS! 

Yes by golly, we all remember when stamps were under 25 cents..
Presently in  Canada, the cost to mail a card to the USA= $1.34 and lets
not forget a Hallmark card is anywhere from $3.95 to $8.00
To mail international-  a card it cost us $2.68.

So the ideal of creating a stamp out of material...well PRICELESS...

And that is what I want to say about our STAMP creators this week...
They are all PRICELESS! 

Look who is up today, some very priceless ladies...who happen
to create some pretty amazing stamps...

And with gratitude we have Thearica from Pig Tales and Quilts
who will be cheering them on like nobody else can...

July 1
 ( Happy Canada Day to our Canadian Friends)

And for our sponsor we have Red Rooster
Each winner will be getting 2 or 3 EACH ( 100  x2 or 3 ) Tokyo 4 x4 lovely squares..
to create even more stamps... ! 

1 Winner who will be our top 3 of the day

and 1 Winner to all those who leave comments...

California....and another PRICELESS stamp...
Yes We LOVE THIS! ( and its creator) 

This one just has to bring a smile or two....I am alllll about animal rescue...
one of the areas our family has always been a big donor of...
I think this should be in many of animal rescue doorways..

OK, nothing speaks more to me that A Canada flag and a beautiful shore...
This lady certainly captured the beauty of welllll everything...her GIANT stamp
is simply beautiful. The quilting and photo exceptional....

We have some OLISO irons to giveaway this month.

I will also be featuring some special projects for the month of JULY...
( while many of you take some well deserved, family, holiday and totally relaxed ME time!)


  1. Happy Canada Day! It's always so, sew fun around here, and it appears that it will keep going with these terrific new hops!

  2. MS-Another terrific job with this blog hop. Leslie's (Loose Threads) comments are not working unless you are have a gmail account. I don't know if that can be remedied. I would like to give her some positive feedback but don't have a google account. I'm up late as it is too hot to sleep here in CA with our crazy summer weather. Thanks.

  3. Happy Canada day Madame Samm and all of our Canadian neighbors and friends!

    I set up my post last night when we got back from Georgia and I hit the 5 instead of the 1 on the month of July. arggg

    I got up this morning and came straight to my blog and said "Well, Mr. Bloger, you are up to your old tricks again"... then went and looked in my scheduled area... I laughed at myself and apologized for blaming Blogger when I realized my error. lol

    The stamps that are being shown today are totally awesome! I am glad it is your job to choose the top 2 and most creative and not mine. :)

    It just NOW started pouring down buckets of rain... Please please please... rainman, go away... We don't need anymore rain for a few weeks...

    1. Thearica could you send your rain to New Mexico please. We have been in a drought for years. we got a little rain last night but barely enough to water the plants. We sure could use a few downpours.

    2. If I could hog tie it and run it down there, I surely would. We have had more rain in 2 months this year than we have had in the past 4-5 years put together. We are usually on the begging end of things. This year, we are in the 'feasting" stage. Our tobacco crops are growing way too fast to actually thicken the leaf up to make the "pounds" it will take to make our crop. Hopefully it will be someone else's turn to have rain soon.... hopefully your area.

  4. Happy Canada Day! Great stamps this morning. Oh those up coming blog hops sound interesting, can't wait to hear more about them.
