It's My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To!

 Today is my birthday. Woo. Hoo. Should be a day to celebrate. I will to a certain extent, but first I need to get some sad news out first. One of my favorite stamp companies, Lizzie Anne Designs, is closing their metaphoric "doors". Sigh. I love this company. I love the two great owners who started this company a few years ago, and have continually produced fun, quirky, elegant, and artsy images and sentiments in wonderful mixes. The images used in this post are part of their last hurrah, "Summertime Celebration", their final mix to be shipped July 1st. Meanwhile, starting today, they'll be selling their inventory at fantastic sale prices, starting at 40% off. This is your fabulous opportunity to grab all the Lizzie Anne goodness you can...speaking of grab, there are even grab bags for $5 each, filled with a mix of old and new stamps! Put on your cyber-sneakers and run over to the Lizzie Anne Designs' website and stock up now. If you need more inspiration for the images you already have, or those you KNOW you are going to want, then check out the Lizzie Anne Designs blog, the Sketchbook on the website, the rest of our fabulous yet teary-eyed design team members' blogs, and the LAD Facebook page. Plus, you will continue to see our fun samples over the next month, and the discounts will continue until the "Fiesta" is over. Sigh. Now I need cake. And ice-cream.

Sorry to hear about Lizzie Ann Designs. The economy has taken it toll on a number of businesses that provided quality products for us. Very sad. But your card is perfect for conveying the fiesta spirit. Hope your birthday was a happy one!
