Blog Candy Winner!!

I used the random number generator from here to pick the winner.

And the winner is…..


with this post:

I’m glad your stamps made it back home! I would have to guess 69.

Debi, please email me your address so I can mail out your goodies. Congratulations!

Now, so many of you were so close on guessing the number of stamps in my handy-dandy, fancy-schmancy Ziploc carrying case (LOL). But no one guessed the exact amount. In fact, many of you guessed the same numbers. Interesting.

Let me first say, I am SHOCKED by the number I have. A Muse should be a publicly traded company and then I should buy stock.

And the number is…. 49.

FORTY-NINE… OMG. Uh, and that doesn’t include the 2 I left here, or the acrylic stamp sets, or the polka dot alphas. Did I mention that I’m a SU! demonstrator. With. A. Serious. Addiction. To. These. A. Muse. Stamps.

So, this giving away stuff is fun… I’ll have to do another very soon. I’ll keep you posted.

And here I just noticed that I’m at 6000. WACKY.

Dog thanks!

I wanted to use the little doggie stamp but since my A Muse stamps were still on vacation without me yesterday, I turned to the soon-to-retire SU! Ruff Day set. I needed/wanted to make my neighbor’s son a card for dog sitting for us. We have 2 Papillons… one of them (the little princess is my avatar over on Splitcoast). Anyway, the A Muse dog stamp would have represented their size better… but, here is the QUICK card I made. I used the Sakura glaze pen on the nose to make it all wet and shiny looking.


My First Blog Candy

So, many things to say….

Last night before I went to bed, I was 2 away from 5000 hits. And some how this morning, only FIVE hours later (yes, I know…. only 5 hours… uh, the boys are HOME! YAY!), I’m at 5200.

Did I mention that my luggage didn’t come home with us Sunday night? UH, HELLO… my stamping stuff was in there!!! Okay, okay, calm down. BUT ALL of my A MUSE stamps except 2 that I loaned to my friend Amy, were in there. Did I say ALL…. yes, ALL. Okay, breathe in, then out… so at 11pm last night, our luggage showed up. All 3 pieces. The connection in Miami to Dallas was really tight and we had to RUN through customs with our bags. “They” stopped me and said, “Ma’am, you need to slow down”. I said we’re not going to make our connection… (and I have to get home to my boys… okay I didn’t say that but I was thinking it). So they looked it up and said, “Do you think you can run all the way to your gate?” They took our bags, led us through the employee security section and off we went. We made it… our 3 bags didn’t. Anyway, my A Muse stamps and the rest of my stuff are safe in their home now.

But these 2 things together made me think that’s it’s high time I did some blog candy. So, I’m going to do my own rendition of the A Muse luggage contest, guess how many stamps are in there – only because they are all still packed. Leave a comment here with your guess before midnight Central Wednesday night. The winner will be picked at random from the comments (i.e. not the one that guesses the number – although if you guess the EXACT number, I’ll send you something too).

The prize:

Lots to alter and some other stuff:
2 large Gable boxes
3 small Gable boxes
Target $ spot green stripe container (great for cuttlebug dies)
6 medium weight coasters
5 chipboard flowers
Some prima flowers
Some black and white polka dot ribbon
Michael’s Pregnant lady stamp
SU! Small incentive stamp
Tags in various colors of SU! cardstock including vellum
10 white bags – good for kid’s school treats (they are the thin kind)
2 mini manila folder embellishments
6×6 12 month Desktop calendar to alter

Let the guessing begin.

Thanks so much for following my creative journey…


A Muse Challenge #5 is up!

Can you believe it’s week five already for these challenges! Time is just flying by… as usual.

Anyway, challenge #5 is up here. This week’s challenge is to create a scene. I’ve been wanting to try to do this more in my cards. The A Muse stamps are great for this.

Here are the details of the challenge:

“Let’s see your scenes! A Muse images work so well together that creating scenes is simple and fun! So your challenge this week is to create a scene. You may use your choice of ink, papers, colors, stamps (please use at least one A Muse stamp if possible), embellishments, etc. “

Go over to Amuseapalooza and register your self. There are weekly prizes JUST for registering. If you want to put my name in as the person that referred you, I’d appreciate it. Then make some cards and play along. Have you ever made any scene cards?
