Featured Stamper - Pat Smethers

One of our very own Teapotters has been chosen as the Featured Stamper today on Splitcoast - Pat Smethers.  She was chosen by our fearless Teapot Queen Cindy Motherway and you just have to read the tribute and poem she wrote - here is the link.  And here is a link to Pat's gallery

The rules for the Featured Stamper Challenge are to pick a card from the stamper's gallery and change at least two things about it.   I visited Pat's Critter File and chose this one - Sweet Friend.

I've always admired her cowboy cards but I also love all her Gruffies and House Mouse cards.  They're all so sweet it was hard to choose from.  I just happened to recently purchase my first House Mouse stamp called Fragrant Friendship (I always make a serious dent in my wallet when I visit One Little Spark in Tuckerton!). 

I made a few changes - I changed the image, the colors and flipped the little cut out with the ribbon to the other side as it fit better that way with the image.  I haven't added a sentiment yet, but when I do it will go on the lower left portion of the yellow panel right below the image.

So I say - Great choice today Cindy and Congratulations Pat!  Your gallery is such an inspiration!


  1. My daughter's FORTIETH birthday is this Friday and I can't even work up the interest to try and MAKE her a card. Oh Lordy. I'm afraid it will NEVER come back.

  2. Love the bright cheery colours and adorable image!

  3. Indeed, Pat can make those hairy mice (and bears) look good - and so can you. I have to confess they don't carry much appeal for me.
    I like the hardware - I never quite know how to use those little clips. The punched out circle makes a good frame for it.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
