Great things are coming in June...

     Well I just finished working on my June newsletter and thought I would share some fantastic news with all of you, from Close to My Heart.  Warning this post is very heavy in photos....

First, they just announced a release of a darling stamp from the Autumn/Winter idea book, to help aid in the relief efforts for the Oklahoma tornado victims.  You can get this set at a home gathering or on my website.  This set is just $2.95 with 100% of the sales going to the American Red Cross. Here is a picture of the stamp set.
Second, there will be 2 specials during the month of June.  The first is when you make a qualifying purchase of $25.00 that includes stamps you will get a cute little My Creations banner for FREE!
The other amazing special is a great set of Patriotic stamps.  These are perfect for the summer holidays and to show your Patriotism.  When you purchase the B-size at full retail value, $3.00 of the set will go to the USO and when you purchase the either or both of the D-size sets at full retail value, $5.00 will go to the USO for military families.  Let's show our support for the troops and get yours starting June 1st and going until July 31st.
