New Echo Park Summer Days in Stock!

Hello my Beary Sweet Friends!  It's finally here, the latest collection from Echo Park appropriately titled "Summer Days".  Ohhh, there are brads, chipboard elements and rubons to accent this collection too.  And a yummy 6"x6" paper pad for all of our card making friends.  I don't know about you, but I can't wait for summer to get here.  Spring just isn't enough for me.  Florida weather is looking pretty good about now.  Okay, so I hear there is at least 3 months of 100+ degree temps, but it certainly beats 6 months of winter - YUCK!  There is always air conditioning and swimming pools, right?

Here's a look at the entire collection...

Available in single sheets and the collection kits.  To celebrate the arrival of these sweet papers, I have discounted it 25% OFF (instead of our usual 20% off) until Friday, April 22, 2011.

We also received all the new 6"x6" paper pads from Echo Park.  I'm most excited about "Walk in the Park".  That was one of the very first Echo Park collections we brought into the shopped, and the first to sell out in record timing.  You can find the all the new 6"x6" paper pads HERE.

Don't forget, there are coupon codes listed in the post below that you can use on your next Beary Scrap order until April 30, 2011.  It's a good time to get that extra savings!

Thanks for stopping by!

Beary Sweet Challenge #24 - Wings!!!

On behalf of our Beary Sweet Ladies, and myself,  we send a BIG thank you to everyone who joined our BSC #23 - we are so thrilled to see each and every one of you play along! We'll announce our Top 3 honorees on Sunday, April 17th. Thank you!

It is that time of the month again, which means it's time for our new challenge. Well, I'm am almost 2 days late posting here, but it's better than not posting it at all - Right?.  "Bear" with me (no pun intended), I'm starting to get into somewhat of a routine.  Settling in to get back to the fun stuff has been difficult.  Emails answered (when my MS Outlook is working correctly), orders shipped, and new inventory added has been a big priority lately.  

***Speaking of emails... If you have emailed me recently and didn't get a response from me... please, please, please... email me again!!!***

Back to the Challenge:  This time we're challenging you to share a project using the theme...


Be creative with this one... feathers as wings, butterflies, birds... anything with "Wings".  Oh, this is going to be so much FUN!!!

This challenge runs through April 30th at 11:59pm EST. We will announce the random gift voucher winner and our "Beary Sweet Top 3" from this challenge on April 17th on our BSC Blog.  Remember to read all the rules before entering.  You can find all of the details HERE!

As always, we love when you play along with us.  We can't wait to see what you make.  And I can't wait to see what our Beary Sweet Ladies come up with.

Until next time!

FREE Easter Digi Sentiment Stamp!

Hello Beary Sweet Friends!  I know I've been scarce on this neck of the woods, but it is with good reason.  Since we had some improvement in the weather here in PA, and my husband actually had a few hours off of work (only a few hours on Sundays), we've been sorting through stuff from the old brick and mortar shop.  I've been liquidating loose inventory on ebay, and hubby emptied the covered trailer that we've been using for storage to see what all is left to get rid of.  It's not as bad as we thought, but we are still sitting on a few displays and hundreds of paper trays.  If you know a store looking for some, please send them my way - LOL.  I don't know what to do with them all.  I figure by the time summer is here, we should be cleaned out and *hopefully* be back to some sort of normalcy and a lot less stuff (fingers crossed).  It was a bit sad to see everything stacked up in storage, but with the way life is for us right now, EVERYTHING has seemed to make sense and fell into place at the right time.  God doesn't make mistakes and I know he knew what he was doing when we *had* to close the location.  We were fortunate enough to follow the signs and take the right path.  All things happen for a reason, so I have been told... and believe.  On a good note, I finally found my new sewing machine that I LOVE because it does all sorts of crazy stitching.  I've only used it about 5 times, but I played with it a lot and love all of the features it has.  I can't wait to start using it again!

Anyway, I had to take a "creative break", so I made a quick digi stamp for you (and me - hehehe).  I hope to have a few more finished up later this week.  No promises though - LOL.

As always, they can be resized in whatever program you are using.  The work great in MS Word too.  Just print and punch or cut out.

Oh... I almost forgot!  We have new Pink Paislee papers in the store.  I wasn't thrilled with 2 of their new lines, so I didn't get them :(.  If you want them, let me know... but I DID order Butterfly Garden which is absolutely AMAZING!  The Ladies have already been playing with these papers.  Um... WOW!!!  Take a look...

Card created by Patricia.
Sweet!!!  I am out of basically all of the embellishments, but they are on re-order.  This line is HOT, HOT, HOT!  Does it tickle your fancy?  If so, check them out HERE.

Maybe one more thing before I go... how about some COUPON CODES?  Would you like some?  Really???  Well, okay then.  Here it goes, and here is why.  It is SPRING!  That means summer is just around the corner.  Our first daffodil bloomed today, and that brought a HUGE smile to my face.  I wish summer would last as long as this past winter did.  Granted, we are dealing with a lot of rain right now; however, April Showers Bring May Flowers and I can't wait to see leaves on the trees and flowers blooming in my flower beds!  Enough gibber-jabber... here are your COUPON CODES for our shop...
