My News & Candy


If you've visited Splitcoaststampers today, you probably already know my news. Can you believe I got "dirty" with the Dirty Dozen Design Team?? I can hardly believe it myself, and was so nervous for the reveal today! I am so happy I can now breath a sigh of relief. Did you check out this month's gallery, yet?? Oh my goodness...there is so much variety and awesome goodies you'll be sure to love. Click on this link to see (you must be a fan clubber to see this gallery).

I decided to make this card in my celebration. I used this cute pig named Blox by DoodleFactory, and distributed by Starving Artistamps. The base is Creamy Carmel, and I made the "wood grain" by embossing the leaf from my Bodacious Bouquet Classy Brass. I used my Square Nesabilities to cut my frame, and sponged the edges with Close To Cocoa. Blox is stamped with Palette Burnt Umber, colored with my Copic markers, and trimmed & mounted to my little drawn in scene. The sentiment is hand written with my Close To Cocoa marker. The ribbon was a gift from Lindsey.

Blog Candy

Did that get your attention? In celebration of my news, I am giving away two fan club memberships to Splitcoaststampers. One for a new member, and one for a current (to help you stay current for another year. All you need to do is leave a comment here telling me if you are a newbie, or extending your membership. Please be sure to check back on Monday, when I will be drawing the winners. If you do not plan on checking back, be sure to leave your contact information, so that I may get in touch with you if you are a winner.

Good luck, and thanks so much for your comments and support you've given me here at my blog! You guys rock!!

WOWZA! That's fantastic news, Rose Ann! My membership expired in Oct & I didn't have any extra $ to extend it, so this would be a big blessing to win - I can't wait to see what you do (so even if I don't win, I'll renew my membership in Jan; I just have to)

Congrats!!! You SO deserve to get dirty :)

My fan club membership has expired because I have been out of work since September 9th. I collapsed at work, I work as an LNA, and they discovered I have a brain tumor. Further testing has indicated that the tumor is benign and I don't have to have surgery at this point. YIPPEE!!!

Love, Love, Love your Blog!!!
