Introduing Raisin Boat Stamps

Wow, it seems like forever since I had time to make a card for a challenge.
Thursday the teachers gave me a wonderful retirement party and some lovely gifts. So today I stared making thank you card. Like always when I need a sketch I head to Unscripted Sketches. I love to start there when making a card. OK, I am so excited to tell you about the stamps I used. I got them at the Madison Mingle I went to almost a month ago and today is the first time I got to use them. The stamps are from a company called Raisin Boat and it is a rental company like Netflix. They have a special offer for your fist two months of only $5.99 for two stamp set. You use them as much as you want and they give you an envelope with postage to send it back when you are ready. Then the third month it goes to $7.99 a month for two sets. You can choose a membership plan that fits your needs. If you tell them who referred you and you are still signed up on the third month you and that person both get a free stamp set. You can also buy any of the set. They are $14.99 but if you are a member you get 20% off.
Here I copied this from their sight:

Renting your sets

*Monthly rental subscriptions starting as low as $5.99 / month.
*Free shipping to and from your doorstep on rentals.
*No due dates. Keep your rental sets for as long as you want.
*20% off ALL Raisin Boat sets purchased by renters (not just ones they rent).

They have a wonderful gallery to get ideas for each stamp set. The stamp are high quality. I love the idea that I don't have to keep them. How many stamp sets have you bought for one stamp in the set? This way you can stamp that one stamp in every color you have and send it back. I thought the cost was so reasonable. It cost more for a greasy burger that is bad for your heart. I just think it makes so much sense. They have over 175 exclusive stamps and introduce new sets every week. The stamps are made in the USA and have a crisp image.
Wow, I should sell them. I did talk to them about donating one for a give away. The owners are to young mothers who have a vision and went for it. I wish them all the best. I think it is a brilliant idea.
The stamp sets I used are Purrsonality and Crosswrd Puzzle. The paper and ribbon is from CTMH. The little heart is Creative Candy by Amuse and the pearls are from Kaiser Craft.

So what do you think?

Thanks for stopping,

I am out looking for challenges this card will work for so that I can help get the word out and I found a new one to me called Simple Saturday. I like the sound of that one. It also works for Cute Card Thursday. Their challenge is For Some one Special. The ladies that put on my party are really special it was a wonderful night.

Wow Linda, you're sneaky---I was checking out the other Unscripted submissions when you must've uploaded this. Beautiful! I love the crossword puzzle, perfect for a thank you to the teachers. Great use of the sketch too, thanks for playing!

Thanks for the heads up on this company, it sounds interesting. I'm not a Netflix girl but borrowing stamps seems more up my alley! Enjoy the day!

How fun, I had heard about this company about 3 months ago but never could remember the name. Such a great idea.
Your not out of school yet are you? We have a few more weeks here.
