Hi, all!  I've been noticing my followers number creeping up slowly and steadily and to that I would like to say THANK YOU!!!  To all of you who have followed me for any amount of time--you rock!  You are the reason I keep doing this!  I LOVE your feedback and I strive to be better each day to bring something new to those who even glance my way!

That said, I have a goal for myself.  I would like to reach 500 followers!  I only need about 150 more to get to my goal, but as an incentive, I've got some blog candy I'll be giving away once I reach my goal!!!

Here's the candy~
Candy includes a 6"x 6" paper pad and enamel dots by My Mind's Eye,
the Happy Sentiments stamp set from Inspired By Stamping,
and three colors of baker's twine.
So, want a chance to win this?  Oh, and did I mention I will ship WORLDWIDE?!  That's right, this package of goodies will go to one lucky someone ANYWHERE in the world!

Here's how to gain a chance (or more than one) to win:

2. Like my blog page on Facebook.
3. Follow me on Twitter.
4. Follow me on Instagram.
5. Follow me on Pinterest.
6. Follow me on YouTube.
7. Follow me on Bloglovin'.
8. Add a picture of the blog candy on your blog linked back to THIS POST.
9. Refer a friend who follows me on any/all of these social outlets. (Each separate friend is ONE extra chance to win.)

For each of these things you do, leave a comment below stating which of these things you do/did.  If you already follow me on all these social media outlets, all you have to do is comment!  When referring friends, add a single comment with the person's name ONE TIME, meaning that you can't add their name each time they follow me on a social media outlet...that's THEIR chance.  You may add an extra comment for each friend that follows me, I just need to know their name so that I can allow your comment to count.  So, basically, you have UNLIMITED chances to win!!!  SCORE!

Inspired By Stamping: Frog Tac Toe


Hi, friends!  I'm excited to have another fun creation to share with you today using BRAND NEW RELEASE stamps from Inspired By Stamping!  I made this game to give to my nieces that live in Utah.  Pink and purple frogs, of course!  Come take a peek...

I started by decorating the front of the tin with stamps from the NEW Water Lily set.  I paper pieced the lily flower and then I painted the whole front with Mod Podge.  Some glitter and a little tag for game title finished off the front.



Then I turned to the inside.  I made some purple and some pink frogs using the frog image from the NEW Water Lily set.  I used paper to create the game board.  Magnets on the back of the frogs keep them in place make this game travel-able! :)




The frogs are sparkled up a bit with glitter glue.  Here's a picture of a game in progress!  TONS of fun for my little nieces!



That's all for me today!  I hope you like my project and that you hop over to the Inspired By Stamping store to grab these goodies today!  Also, don't forget to take a peek on the Inspired By Stamping blog for more inspiration using these products!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!

Doodle Pantry: S'more Love

Hi, friends!  Yesterday marked the 10 year anniversary of my sweet hubby proposing--what a courageous man! ;)  I felt like it was something we should celebrate, so I made him a card using some fun Doodle Pantry digis!  Come and take a peek!

Here's my card~

Products used: Happy Trails Camper set

For these fabulous challenges~






I know this looks a bit girly because of the trim and hearts, but I had to be a tiny bit frufru for LOVE reasons, you know?!  I thought the sentiment was perfect because I DO love him s'more and s'more each day. ;)  He liked it.  That's all that counts!

Thanks for stopping by today to take a peek at my creation!  I hope you like it and that you join in the fun of these fabulous challenges!  HUGS and happy {digi} stamping to you all!

Inspired By Stamping: Release Week: Chevrons


Hi, friends!  I'm excited to have another card to share today using BRAND NEW RELEASE stamps from Inspired By Stamping!  This card is very CAS and it actually uses two new sets--one of which you can get for FREE this month!  Come look at the card...



I started by stamping some of the chevrons from the new Chevrons set and some washi tape images and words from the Pretty Planners set.  The Chevrons set is the set you can get for FREE when you spend $50 this month at the Inspired By Stamping store!  Some sequins and liquid pearls are the accents that mirror the colors I used to stamp with.



Next I added some little banners and hearts from the Pretty Planners set and tied some baker's twine around the top to add a bit of interest.



That's all for me today!  I hope you like my project and that you hop over to the Inspired By Stamping store to grab these goodies today!  Also, don't forget to take a peek on the Inspired By Stamping blog for more inspiration using these NEW release products!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
