A Threezer Riddle

So... last night the boys and I played a new-to-us game called Tri Bond. Ever play it? You are given three clues, hence the word "threezer" and you have to guess what they all have in common. It was a bit too hard for a 12 & 14 year old but we still had fun. It got me thinkin' about today's post. I have something very special to share with you today. Here is my blog version of Tri Bond. Can you guess what these three things have in common??

This was the very first card that I ever had accepted by a publication:

This is one of my favorite Christmas card designs from last year:

Ahhhh, one of my favorite floral stamps to watercolor:

Hmmm, got the answer yet? Yes, they were all Cornish Heritage Farms images but you have to dig a bit deeper on this riddle.

What did I hear you say? They are all Shady Tree Studios images? Ding, ding, ding!! You are correct. A big round of applause. What does that have to do with anything? Well, let me tell you. Nancy Baier is the illustrator of the Shady Tree line of stamps and she has decided to sell her own stamps! Isn't that the coolest?
Nancy asked me if I would be part of the DT for Shady Tree Studios and help her launch this exciting new venture. How could I say no? I have so enjoyed working with her stamps in the past. The store will officially be open for business on the 23rd and there will be some sneak peeks next week so you can see some of her latest images. Many of them are autumn themed and you are sure to love them!

Nancy has already been peeking some of the new stamps on her blog and today she is announcing the design team she has assembled. I hope you will join me in wishing her well.
