five days of giveaways....

More peeks for ya!!! and goodies galore all week long so be sure to keep up and enter each day. you will have 48 hours to enter each contest before i pick a winner so check the date/time stamp!!

first up in the new scrollybugs line is this adorable little corner stamp. an old fence covered in morning glory with a few bees buzzing around....

i embossed the image with black detail powder and then colored with prismas and gamsol.

next is another background - i LOVE harlequins AND i LOVE flowers so here is a perfect combination! i inked it using a big & juicy rainbow pad and then flowered it up with my new odyssey primas i JUST got!

next up i paired a background from yesterday with - of course - a pink cat!!! by stamping on black and embossing with gold i got a totally different look! sands of time bead pops go perfectly here. i also used ranger's new black pigment ink - OH MY the coverage is incredible and it is SO creamy and solid - i am in LOVE!
so this past saturday i had a little party to celebrate the new stamps. i had two friends from the cricut board, my nieghbor and Stampin Up demo, and amy from over at Pickled Paper who happens to live near me (lucky me). here are a couple samples from the party - we didn't get a lot completed but we sure did have a GREAT time and i LOVED getting to finally hang out with Amy! you will be seeing some stuff from her using these new stamps on Thursday.


now what about the giveaway you ask....up for grabs today - TWO bottles of alcohol ink and a felt applicator tool. what do you have to do to win. well, just this weekend i passed the 15,000 hits mark and to me that is just mind boggling! so i was wondering - how did you all find me????? just leave a comment here and tell me how you found my site - a winner will be picked at random.

be sure and run over to Mary Jo's blog to see her samples - she is just INCREDIBLE!!!

and don't forget about the acrylic block contest!!! happy stampin!

  35. I am in awe of those great cards! I can barely do a simple card in 15 minutes. I can't imagine how long it takes you to do one of those. My favorite is the circle one. Thanks for the opportunity for the blog candy. CraftyKaren (cricut mb)
