A Hodge Podge of Stuff

Coffee of the Day - Toasted Coconut

Good morning!
I am going to warn you ahead of time - no project to show you today, but several items of crafty interest.

To start - on Friday I received a most glorious package in the mail - the brand new Stampin' Up! Idea Book/Catalog. oh my goodness gracious me, I think this is truly the best on EVER EVER EVER!!!! each page is filled with such beauty! the samples seem to far surpass any I have seen before. the new 'in colors' are gorgeous, even though I am still in love with the past ones. so happy they are now keeping them for 2 years rather than 1 like in previous years. the new stamps are such fun. I think I want almost every single one. all of the seam tape from the minis made it into the 'big book', thankfully, along with the most delightful ruffle ribbon. so get ahold of your demo & get this catty. you will turn to it time & time again for inspiration!

next up is a quick little announcement about a joint venture between Tiddly Inks and Make it Crafty. July 14 they will release a collection of Victorian and Steampunk images. I can't wait to see these! you can head over to Christy's blog for a chance to win several of your own!

Whiff of Joy is having a big giveaway for blog candy here. I have long admired these cute stamps & would love to win a few! How about YOU?! grins!

Cheryl of She Stamps has a great Copic blog candy giveaway going on through the end of this month. I don't know about you, but I am always adding to my Copic collection! ;)

and finally, I discovered yesterday that I have been accepted to the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge blog Design Team! this is going to be such fun! there are some amazingly talented women who are a part of this challenge team, so I look forward to working with them every week! I hope you will play along from time to time! you know how much I enjoy challenges! :)

Enjoy your weekend & I will see you tomorrow!

--> edited to add: if I reach 260 followers by July 17, a certain person's birthday in our family, I will offer up my own blog candy package! :) gosh, I might just do it anyway for all of you who have so faithfully stood by my side through the ups & downs......

I love your patriotic card! Such a cute image. I love the banner and ribbon.

Thank you for posting my blog candy in your sidebar. Good luck with the draw!
