Guess Who's the SASI Friday Friend!


Have you guessed yet? Have you? Have you? Did you guess me? Did ya? Well, you're right!!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaay! I am very proud and honored to be the Stamp a Sweet Impression Friday Friend! In case you don't know, SASI is a blog dedicated to papercraft projects made with stamps by Taylored Expressions, hosted by her Baker's Dozen Design Team. And, if you know me, you know I LOVE Taylored Expressions stamps and Key Ingredients Kits. So I was naturally over the moon to be asked to sample the Friday sketch and be interviewed for the blog.

This was actually perfect timing for me because I had already decided to make a special card, using the Beary Special and Beary Special Accessories stamp sets for our pediatrician, who is retiring at the end of this month. Dr. Metsch always wore a little bear clipped to his stethoscope. He's been our pediatrician since Ian was born, which is more than 24 years. I was hoping he'd wait to retire until Avery turns 18, but I guess he couldn't wait seven more years just for us!

It's especially fitting that I'd use these stamp sets because Taylor has donated proceeds from the sale of these stamps to Sick Kids Hospital. I think Dr. Metsch would be glad to know that, don't you? I believe you only have until August 31st to purchase one or both of these sets and have a portion of the proceeds go to Sick Kids, as Taylor will soon release the newest stamp set(s) that will benefit another charity. So, if you were on the fence about these sets, don't wait any longer!

I've also used the newest Key Ingredients Kit, which appears to be sold out since I don't see it on the website. I tell ya, if you haven't already, sign up for the Key Ingredients Kit subscription so that you don't miss out!

Thank you, Jami, for asking me to be SASI's Friday Friend. You made my day, week, month!

Oh, and Jami happened to mention to me that we'll all want to tune into the SASI blog on September 5th for challenges and prizes celebrating the one-year anniversary of Taylor's release of her first stamp sets! I'll definitely be there, and hope you will, too!

Whew, I don't know about you, but this has been a whirlwind of a week for me, and I'm still trying to catch my breath... and catch up on email and blog visits. Please bear with me a bit longer! I do so very much appreciate you stopping by for a visit and leaving such kind comments. I'm getting a HUGE blog candy ready... hopefully for Saturday... so stay tuned. So many nice things have been happening for me lately, that I want to pay it forward!

Have a great day!
