And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28

truth

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Custom Design * Special Orders

I know you all know I am the owner and designer of my own rubber stamp
What you don't know is that I have another secret identity.
I am the card lady! lol 
At least that is what  a few kids at dance call me. 
I  decided to show you a few behind the scenes designs I have created.
Every once in a while someone will come to me and ask me for a special design
or card order. These images I draw can not be sold in the shop because they are personalized
or ... well... just because ;) There is a sweet little lady (9 year old girl) and her beautiful mother
who are always asking about and for designs. Her mom recently came to me asking about
Valentines. Her daughter and I sat and discussed designs for the longest time.
It was interesting to hear what she had planned for her cards. She KNEW she wanted a
Mickey Mouse theme. So, after carefully listening to her ideas and getting an idea of what she
wanted to relay to her friends (not too cute, not too romantic) I suggested this.. and she loved it.
So here is one of my special, hand drawn designs ... 
and believe me, it was really intimidating to draw such an ionic character!!! WHEW!!!... 

Mickey and Minnie Mouse Valentines:



{30 cards in all}




Sometime in October 2013 
I was asked by this same lady to make her daughter a special 
Birthday Card. Her daughter is also in love with Steamboat Willie
so her mom knew she wanted it to have him on it...
Here is my interpretation of a Steamboat Willie Birthday Card: 




And last but not least,
Here is the last creation she asked for,
A  Jack Daniels birthday card for a 70 year old man. 
She wanted it to have plenty of space for her family to all sign it, 
so I made it fold out in a different sort of way. 
She loved it, I hope you do too! :)







SOO there you have it. 
A little behind the scenes peek at a few of my 'special order' designs.
While sometimes intimidating creating something SPECIAL for someone,
it is a lot of fun seeing the end result and seeing how much they love it!

Thank you for stopping by today!
