Good morning everyone :) I'm in a great mood today...after 10 straight days of 105 & over heat, yesterday was a cool 96 and today is supposed to be about the same...woo-hoo! I was ready to dig my winter coat out of storage ;)
Well, today I have a new type of posting for you...I'm trying my hand at a little "news letter" of sorts. Now this is waaaay out of my comfort zone so please bear with me as I stumble through this first one.
First off, a little something was spotted out in blog land. It was noticed that our DeNami friend, Heidi, has placed an Addict badge on her blogs sidebar. THANKS so much Heidi!! I just love seeing our fellow Honorary Addicts showing their support! If you'd like to have a DeNami Addict badge too just click the tab at the top and grab the code :) Let us know if you place a blinkie on your blog and we will feature you right here and list a link to your blog under our DeNami Addicts tab.
Next on my list of randomness today is a funny little thing...Our fellow DeNami friend, Stacy, entered a fun and summery card in last months color challenge, however, she really must have been channeling some serious DeNami fun because not only did it fit the color challenge, it also fits this months sketch challenge!
Isn't this adorable? I just love her twine element!
If you'd like to enter my sketch challenge this month there's a link on the sidebar...just give it a little click and you'll find out all the information on the challenge. We don't have many rules and don't even require you to use DeNami products/stamps. I sure hope you can join in all the fun and there's a DeNami gift certificate up for grabs, it runs through August 4th.
This past Tuesday Paulina, from DeNami design announced the details on the August blog hop. I'm way excited about this theme...how fun!
Have you signed up yet?? Well, if not, what the heck are you waiting for?? ;) Come join the fun!!
Did ya'll know that there's a virtual classroom on the DeNami website. What a great place to learn new tricks, see "how to" videos, learn a little about some of the DeNami products and get great ideas for using your DeNami stamps.
While we hear from Paulina on the blog and speak with her in the DeNami office all the time, we rarely hear from Nami herself...that's because she's hard at work bringing us fun and exciting things at various stamp shows all around the country. Here's a listing of the July shows;
|July 14 - 15||Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook Expo||Loveland||CO|
|July 21 - 22||Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook Expo||Colorado Springs||CO|
|July 28 - 29||Rubber Stamp Events||Bloomington||MN|
Lastly, I'd like to pay my respects to a much loved companion of mine...my teeny swiss dot. This is one of my very first DeNami stamps and MUCH MUCH MUCH used. I bet this little guy has inked his way across over 200 cards in his little lifetime. Ohh how I love this little guy, but sadly, I've used it to death. It's been glued (crystal lacquer works wonders) back together several times, but the poor little thing just gotten worn out...his little cushion just doesn't spring back like it used to, and trust me, I'm 41 years old, I know just how he feels...sigh.
