Major Winds are Blowing!

Ok, so life is a tad hectic right now! LOL I am working on changing and upgrading my website, and it's got a few problems...mainly in that the old site is still functioning, and I haven't figured out how to edit and correct the glaring mistakes that are there right now! For example, I have a PreOrder sale going on...only when I uploaded the page, it seemed to work fine..until the isp updated the vnd...(or whatever it's called) and now that page (and the new Bio page for the new DT) is GONE> when someone tries to get to the PreOrder page, they only get the "sorry, no preorders..." message..ARG>>>hopefully I will be able to correct this in the near future? However..I have a full weekend, and an even fuller week next week. Packers will be here Wed, Thur, and Friday...then we roll out to SC on Saturday Sep.9th!! Once I'm ensconced in the apartment I should be able to make some adjustments and get the new site rolling...I HOPE>>>> Please send your "Don't loose it now" thoughts my way! LOL

Guest Designers!

There was so many great pieces of art submitted for my design team, I wish I could have chosen them all! So, what to do about all the other great submissions? I’d like to add a new feature to my site, called Guest Designer. Every month, I will choose an artist who’s work I like, and send them an invitation to be a guest designer. They will get a free set of stamps and will be asked to submit a minimum of 4 pieces of art work. This art work will be displayed on the FRONT page of my site! My first guest designer will be Jennifer Willis!! She will be working with the Be Mine Doodle Set! I look forward to posting her new works! But in the mean time, I hope you will enjoy these samples she created using the Dragon Scales and Dragon Eye Stamps!! I thought she used these stamps in such an unusual way!

10 cards from 3!!

I've been wanting to create templates for creating 10 cards for a while now. So yesterday I finally sat down, and did it! Create 10 cards using 3 sheets of 12x12 cardstock, and 10 card bases. (Gotta have something under there right? LOL)
Here are 3 of the card samples I came up with. You can see all of them and download the templates, directions and the samples in a handy dandy zip file located on my website!! Have fun with it!

Played with the ATC set again last nite....these also use the Heritage Ladies set. I call them the Royal Ladies, and they are all available for trading...The first one is called "Fashion Queen"-her feather is painted with twinkling h2os, and a bit of the same is added to the words. Second one is "The Little Princess" she has jewels to bring out her shine, and the last one is "The Fairy Duchess"-more twinks on her clothes, her tiara, and her banner. All bgs were stamped using the images from the new ATC clear set.
