Hello there and welcome to what we think is just the most wonderful thing in the world....A DENAMI GIVEAWAY!! (can we get a woot woot??)
What could be a more wonderful way to display our love for all things DeNami then make a blog dedicated to it? (Wendy had a most fantablous idea! -T) We never dreamed we would grab the attention of Nami & Paulina, let alone be offered a chance like this little blog candy giveaway…we started this blog for us, to show each other what we have created and hopefully find some other DeNami lovers along the way. We are honored to have an opportunity like this and hope after today you to are as addicted as we are ;)
Thanks to Nami and Paulina we are giving away a $30 gift certificate to DeNami to get whatever your little heart desires (in our case that would be MORE CHICKIES!!).
So, as we were thinking about this post we thought...."Hmmmm let's list what "we" think are some "must haves" and share that with y'all (sorry, that's Wendy's southern twang coming out again...it tends to do that every now and then).
When choosing my list of "must haves" I thought I would have a coronary. I mean....if I were sent to a tropical island (complete with full staff to cater to my every need of course) and could only take a handful of DeNami items...what items would I choose? Well... take a peek below....
Yeah I know its hard to see all the stamps so feel free to look a little closer....
Pictured above: F172 Hello Friend, B97 Hula Chickie, B96 Girl Chickie, D104 Sledding Chickies, D121 Best Friend Chickies, N128 Three Line Border, F133 Small Sun Swirl, M65 Large Dot Swirls, J77 Large Daisy Blossom, PF26 Assorted Greetings, PF50 Ornamental Flowers.
Now - first and foremost everyone needs at least ONE chickie in their stash. But in reality, once you get one - you will want more! They are tooo darling! (As a side note, a chickie was my very first DeNami stamp and I was hooked from there!) And flowers. MUST.HAVE.FLOWERS. I am partial to the daisy and tulips. And of course...decorative/background stamps. But that doesn't complete my list of must haves...OH NO.... Back in February Nami introduced me to the ATG at the show here in SC and I had to have it (even added a little pink bling!) And of course I need a Quickie glue pen. And glitter! And cardstock! And ribbon! And Crystal Laquer! And Buttons! That would be just the tip of the iceberg to get a few cards done in between massages and fruity cocktails with pink umbrellas (you know - cause I am on a tropical island and all - What? a girl can dream can't she?).
While I love all of my DeNami stamps, pictured are the ones that I just can not live without. Seriously…touch them and you WILL pull back a nub….just sayin’. ;) I am sooooo in agreeance with Wendy on that chickie issue… They’re like potato chips…can’t have just one! My first chickie…that darling one holding the flower. I sometimes wonder when Nami was sketching up her first chickie if she had any idea how that little guy would someday take off and draw us all into its little wings…I know, I’m getting off subject here…nothing new for me. I tend to ramble on a lot…a real lot lol! As you will see from my picture, I have a lot must haves. It was so hard to pick just a few…I mean, seriously, I puffy heart them all!! It took me over an hour to widdle it down to just these few! But time and again these are the ones I reach for. One of the best things about this little collection is that they play well with others. It’s very rare that I make a card that doesn’t have a DeNami stamp thrown in somewhere. I guess I tend to gravitate towards the small and mini stamps…they are so perfect for creating your own background papers and adding that perfect little sumthin sumthin to my cards. And like Wendy, I do love me some ribbon, glitter and that handy dandy quickie glue pen. However, with all that being said, my favorites are sure to change from time to time with new additions to my collection. I just ordered the little button stamp...yup, I can already see that one being a real favorite!
