Naughty or Nice

I have exciting news to share that I will be the January Guest Designer for Club Anya & Friends! Along with that news it's preview week for The Greeting Farm and I had fun making seek peaks starting with this stamp: Cheeky Cherry "NAUGHTY or NICE"! I've chosen to preview the nice side and set this little angel on a heavenly butterfly swing.


I started my blog with The Greeting Farm stamps and now I'm starting the year with them too - it's such a pleasure to be on the team as a guest! So check back tomorrow for another preview and a chance to win an adorable Oliver & Amelia set!

Did you know? The Lincoln cent (or penny) has been struck by the United States Mint since 1909. When the US entered into World War II in 1941, copper and tin, which were both used in the cent, were in short supply. Production of bronze cents was cut back drastically in July 1942, and was ceased in December. On December 18, 1942, Congress gave the mint authorization to change the composition of the cent for a three-year period, and five days later, it was announced that the coin would be made out of zinc-coated steel. After the war, the Treasury quietly retired as many steel cents as it could from circulation, while denying it was doing so—no public admission of the program was made until 1959. A few 1943 bronze cents and 1944 steel cents are known to exist, and are valuable. Only one 1943-D cent in bronze is known; it sold in September 2010 for $1.7 million.

  5. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response .

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
