Did you get lobster from your Valentine last night?  The only lobster on my plate is the Lobste,r on this card, from the By The Tide  stamp set.  "My Valentine" is notorious for under-celebrating occasions so my expectations are set pretty low. hehehe :)  "My Valentine date" was spent with a little someone whose been under the weather and wishing we were sitting By The Tide someplace a lot warmer.  We grilled burgers and then Rob and Denver went to the Mukwonago Girls Basketball game while Ella and I hung out.  Pretty low key….Adria did have a date but I'm pretty sure lobster WASN'T on the menu.

One of my favorite sets in the Spring Catalog

So, I'm really happy with my little By The Tide lobster.  He's quite lovely in my opinion and I did manage to spend a little time in my studio alone yesterday, which can be a gift, in and of itself.

By The Tide Card Sample

Card #1 for Feb Stamps By Mail

I was asked to consider By The Tide as one of my Stamps By Mail sets and so by request, here it is!  Here's how it works.  I design two cards using a limited amount of supplies and then prepare "kits" for my customers to either pick up or have them mailed.   I prep the kits to include cardstock, precut and scored, to create 8 cards (4 of each design) and includes envelopes and directions.  You can choose to purchase the stamp set (at a 15% discount during the kit month) and also make sure you check the supplies to make sure you have all the pads etc you need.
