Inspirations from Simon's Friend Boots!

Have you seen our friend, Jo (Boots') blog? Here is just a sampling of her creativity! Can you believe she has only been stamping for one year!? Jo uses stamps and styles from every genre! So versatile and fun, we LOVE her!

From Jo's blog:

About Me

My Photo
Boots the Monkey (Jo)
I'm 37 years young and live in the beautiful County of Wiltshire with my husband of 13 years and our gorgeous daughters aged 7 (Ski) and 1 (Fizzy). I am new to card making but have become addicted. Many wonderful people who I have met and spoken to in the World of craft have given me so much inspiration I wanted to share that with anyone wanting to share an addiction. Happy crafting !"

It's astounding how much growth a stamper can make in a single year (Ok, Jo has skillz too!...wish I had those kind of creative genes!)

Here she uses one of my all time favorite Stamps: Good News By Penny Black! Hedgehog is a loveable creature! *SMOOCHES*

The birds in this card are from: Decorative Birds Stamp set by Hero Arts!

CUTE! Halloween is here and pumpkins beware! This stamp is called: Beware of Cat by Penny Black

Could this rabbit get any cuter! It's a Happy Hoppers rubber stamp made by the creator of House Mouse stamps. This stamp is appropriately called: An Apple a Day! Perfect for Fall. The apples around Ohio are especially delicious this year! Jo likes to use real watercolor effects in her cards, she isn't sold (yet) on copic markers, after seeing this card, I understand completely! Jo rocks!

Did you know that Simon Sells the entire Line of Happy Hoppers, House Mouse, and Gruffies stamp in our store: If you click on the names of the stamps, you can link straight to our store and get shopping!

Please let BOOTS (jo) know what you think of her work! It was so kind of her to let us post her hard work on our blog! We will do a drawing tomorrow night and everyone who posts a comment will be eligible to receive a "Decorative Birds" Rubber Stamp set by Hero Arts (as shown below)!
