Fun Announcements and a Garland of Posies!

Posy Garland from Rubber Stamp Tapestry

First of all, Happy Anniversary to me (and my husband!)! We are celebrating 28 years today!
Dinner out and then going to see our daughter in Crane River Theatre's production of "Godspell" - for the second time!  

I am excited about this beautiful stamp set called Posy Garland from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. It is one of three brand new sets specifically designed to stamp on fabric (such as quilt blocks), but it works so well on paper too!

For today's SCS Inspiration Challenge, Stef showed us a site called Novica, which I loved browsing! Awesome stuff. I even found a bracelet that I ordered with birthday money! I used this brooch for my inspiration. I also made this for Melanie's SCS DTGD Challenge for Fan Club members. If you aren't a Fan Club member, you are missing out on some fun stuff!

I stamped on Glossy White paper with VersaColor ink and then embossed with Clear EP. And although in the photo the dark carstock looks black, it really is a beautifull textured dark green from The Paper Studio.

Check out this awesome tutorial from Susan at RST!  It shows just how to use these sets on fabric, wood and paper, and she has made a gorgeous quilt block!  Later next week I will be showing you some ways to use fabric on your cards.

And now I am so pleased and excited to announce that I have been asked to be the August Guest Designer for Sparkle N Sprinkle!  I was honored and surprised when Donna emailed me, and I am so excited to be a part of the wonderful Sparkle Design Team and company. Look for more about SNS and my SNS designs in August!!

For the final announcement, as many of you know, I hosted Unity's FWF blinkie yesterday!  And I chose a winner this morning by randomly picking names out of a basket!  Congratulations to Carol B! Carol, please email Jimmi at
with your full name, addy and what you won!

Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate it so much!
