Farewell Sale – Stampers Dream

When I first started blogging, I was introduced to the sweetest soul, someone that I had purchased some items from off of Ebay.  I had the wonderful opportunity of being on her design team and the more wonderful opportunity to be her friend.  Today is indeed bittersweet.  My sweet friend Michelle is closing her online store, Stampers Dream, to move on to the next door that’s opening in her life.  She’ll still be only a phone call away, but doggone it  — it was only too convenient to browse through all her goodies, then pick up the phone and call.   Today, the talented Stampers Dream Design Team and sweet Alumni join in for a Farewell Blog Hop.    To go along with the feel of the day,  I made a card  with some of my favorite Impression-Obsession stamps that Michelle sent to me, that she still carries in the store – for old times sake dear friend.

Michelle, we are sure going to miss you in blogland but I’ll know where to find  you!  Here’s the scoop in Michelle’s own words:

It is with a heavy heart that I announce I’ve decided to close Stamper’s Dream ! After many tears, and much prayer I just know it’s the right thing for me. I really feel the need to reclaim my life and spend more time with family and friends. My grandchildren are growing up so quickly! And let’s face it…no one can do it all! Not forever, anyway.

So…my loss is your gain!  Everything in the store is 20% off with the coupon code Farewell2U.  Just enter on the checkout page in the coupon section and it will take 20% off the lowest marked price of the items in your shopping cart!  There is a $20 minimum to activate the coupon.  Sorry, but there will be no free shipping during the liquidation.

    It’s always so sad to see another scrapping or stamping store close down. There seem to be fewer and fewer good places to get supplies from. But it’s even worse when it’s a good friend and mentor that has to close the shop.

    Love your beautiful pink card Becca and the lovely sentiment.

    Thanks for sharing and best of luck to your friend, Michelle on her next adventure! :)ReplyCancel
