PURE INNOCENCE STAMPS–SALE $1.43 available as original art renderings at http://heather-ellis.co.uk/page5.htm. This is her overseas site (for those of us in the US).  I’ve found these to cost less than the ones specified for “digital stamping” at Eliss’s Etsy site, or the acrylic stamps available at MFT.

I love these images and it’s a wonderful price.  I used them for my Christmas cards and they colored wonderfully.  I was in a huge hurry to get them mailed out, but I did get some quick shots!

Her newest orignal art MFT renderings are available for download for $2.15 (based on today’s USD conversion rate).  Others are on sale for $1.43.  The process is:  you buy the file, then she emails you the image in an email within seconds.  I just got my Valentine images and will start coloring in the next couple minutes.  Instant gratification!

Also available:  Pure Innocence digital stamps at the Heather Ellis Etsy site for $2.50 per each.  You buy the stamps through paypal, they arrive in your inbox seconds later as well!

For the Christmas cards above, I printed nine per piece of Wal*Mart cardstock by printing from “My Pictures” using the “Photo Printing Wizard” options that came on my HP.  I had a TON to do because I have a very large family, so this worked out great.  I wasn’t able to get ALL the nestability matting options, had to stick with ovals or rectangles, but that was fine by me!

As a personal note, not everyone got a hand colored card (I ran out of time), and most people who did get one probably didn’t realize it was hand colored!   (Mom said I should put “hand embossed, hand cut, hand colored, hand glued” on the back.)  LOL.

So, on the site, the prices are listed in pounds (currently, 1.50 EUR=$2.15 USD.)  Check this link for current conversion rate before purchasing for exact conversion price.

Other deets on my card:  The “Merry Christmas” sentiment was printed on my computer.  I had a stamp similar, but couldn’t get a consistent result with my red inkpad.  Instead, I printed a bunch at a time, then cut them out with the nestabilities tag trio set and embossed with the same, cutting the red sentiment Merry Christmas matte with a SVG design file I came up with for SCAL and my Cricut.  I added precut ribbon slits to the digital cut file the slits on it for the ribbon to slide through so I didn’t have to mess with adding my own slits later.  Loved that, and ordered some nesties that do the same, but for bulk projects, I’ll keep using my Cricut for ribbon slide making!  Worked like a charm.  (See more info on SCAL2 in the sidebar).

The ribbon and paper were found at Mighty Dollar, my new obsession.  Snowflake stamps are Martha Stewart punches.

Okay, I’m personally off to purchase a few more of these lovelies!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
