Happy 4th of July!

Missed monday's post because the site was acting up but we have 4th of July early bird specials happening for the rest of the week. You can look up on Crafts in the City under weekly specials for what's on early bird special for each day. Starting from 7am to 12pm get what you need while supplies last.
Thank you Cheryl for your comment on the money rose. For anyone else that is interested we made the rose out of printed money with red ink on the front and back, but you can make the rose out of regular crisp dollar bills or even foreign money if you wanted to make it exciting.
NEW Sizzix dies called Alterations by Tim Holtz came in last week along with plenty of NEW Stamps from Hero Arts. For anything big or small these dies and stamps will help make your project as unique and one-of-a-kind as you want it.
