News From The Open Window
Even though I haven't offered much in the way of posting this weekend, there has still been a lot going on. As I said yesterday, I have been gathering a bunch of new 'goodies' to have a little fun with. You may recognize the EF from Cuttlebug that I used on this card. I enjoyed doing something a bit simpler...just added a little 'bling' with a variety of rhinestones, pearls and glitter glue.
Let's see...what else did I want to share? OH! My new Artful Inkables stamps arrived and I know the rest of the design team are already working on some great projects. Also, mark your calendars because the AI BLOG HOP begins Saturday, August 15th! I will make sure I remind you this coming week, but you will not want to miss seeing the new stamp sets that will be available starting on that date and of course, if you participate in THE HOP, you just may win ALL 3 BRAND NEW STAMP SETS!
Tags for the tag swap have started arriving as well. The first batch are pretty cool! I know Caz in the UK also put hers in the post and Ross from Australia should have hers on the way as well. A very international swap to say the least. As soon as I get the entire collection, I will post a gallery photo for all to see.
I very excited for my friend Mona over at Cupcake's Creations. Her blog went through a facelift over the weekend and it looks FABULOUS (say it with a high, wavy lilt, please)! If you haven't checked out her blog yet, please do. I love the talent of this lady and you need to get to know her a little bit.....that's all I'm sayin' for now......
Last but not least, as we bloggers reach milestones with our blogs, blog candy offers become quite the big deal. I am nearing my 100th follower, so it won't be long and I have already started gathering some pretty cool stuff for you to win (can you say Martha Stewart?). But in the meantime, I wanted to mention a fellow blogger who is doing the same in honor of not only her 1ooth follower, but also she has had 25,000 visits to her blog. Congrats to Steph over at Where'd All My Money Go?!
Head on over and leave a comment of congratulations for quite an accomplishment.
That's it for now....I have so many more things to share with you about some play dates that we will be offering with you, but those announcements will have to wait just a bit longer...STAY TUNED!
