    "'A CAT IN EVERY CACHET' is my trademark. I have been a first day cover artist since 1988 and recently completed my 126th cover! And all of my covers have one or more cats in the cachet. If you like cats, then you will like my covers which are printed ink drawings then individually tinted with water colors. If you like variety.....cats with flowers, doing sports, imitating famous people, honoring holidays, in space, loving people or other cats, being patriotic....you name it, you'll probably find a cover that fits.

    I paint watercolor portraits of pets and people, satisfaction guaranteed. I can work from your color photo. Painting cats and children are my favorites. " -Nancy (Website c.20150119)

    Fellow Philatelist:
    For nearly seven years I have dedicated much of my time and expense to the development, promotion and running of StampOffers.com.
    Alas, I have reached a point in my career that I am just not able to commit the amount of time needed for such a great site and community.
    Therefore, I am announcing that effective immediately, StampOffers.com has been acquired by Wensy.com.
    Thank you and God bless my friends. It has been fun!
