[laughing] I don't recall saying that but I'll take your word for it as you have a much better memory than I do.

Yes, I have a great video to post as soon as I can figure out how to format the file. I'll get those pictures over to you as well. BTW, if anyone reading this is in Las Vegas be sure and visit Wayne's store --Viva Las Vegastamps. No matter how many stamp stores you've been to, you'll never see one like this.

049G has always been one of my favorite stamps. I think I rendered this design in 1992 but I've never grown tired of it no matter how many times I've used it.

Hi Kathi. Akron's always a fun show. Enjoyed stamping there with everyone.

I'll have to look up and see what an inchie card is.

Hi Jackie, nice to "see" you.

I haven't been to the January Grapevine show yet but instead have always done the July show.

Oh, glad to hear that the lessons came in handy for your sister!

I'm enjoying the sentiment stamps. They just seem to put the perfect finishing touch on so many of the scenes. They seem like they can expand the emotional depth of a scene.

Other than the new sayings that were just released, do you have any plans for new scenic stamps soon?


Sandy Whalen
Hi Sandy. Yes, I have plans for new stamps but I have a couple projects to complete before I get to them. We need to get some samples for the sentiment stamps done and I need to update our hard copy catalog. The good news is that I've already started on some new designs quite some time ago so I have little bit of a head start on things once I get back to drawing. ~K

Hello. I've cut down on the number of shows that we do in general but I'll take a look and see what time of year the Riverside show is going to be. The cost to do shows can be prohibitive at times but the good thing about Riverside is that we wouldn't incur travel expenses so we could consider it. ~K

Kevin, thanks for your reply in the other thread. I thought I'd posted my questions here. . .

My first 'I'm satisfied with it' card was Stampscapes and it is still in my personal collection, never to be sent, as I've never been able to duplicate it. (I think it's because I was on vacation; too much of a goal instead of enjoying the journey.) When I'm stuck in a rut and have little inspiration I ink up your stamps and see where they will carry me.

You did but I moved it to a new thread. It will get too confusing if questions are all posted in one thread so it's just easier to keep the all in separate threads.
