Halloween Contest Results

Hi all,
So our Halloween contest closed on Sunday. I only received cards from three participants - I hope there wasn't any electronic errors. They fooled around with my email and changed some things so it wasn't working for a day or so - please let me know if this was the case and you didn't hear back from me that I did receive your card.
Here are the entries:

Sue Allen got really creative and turned Chapel Road spooky!! She used Chapel Road's Thistle Etc. to make this card!! Well done on stretching the imagination!!

Sue Allen used Class Act's Witch stamp! So Halloween night-like!

Cindy Baker used Class Act's Cat with Pumpkins. Happy Halloween Bones, AND Spider Web! I'm loving the colours!

Therese Malak used a Class Act Mermaid that has yet to be released. She won this from a previous contest! Very creative, Therese!

Okay SO...this is going to be the last contest we are doing this for, but all three participants are going to receive a prize! Ladies, please send me your addresses so I can send you your stamp.
Try to entice your friends to get going on our next contests! There were 7 votes for Remembrance Day, so I am reallllllllllly expecting to see some pretty cards!!!

Next Contest:
Remembrance Day: Contest Closes November 14th at 5:00pm.
Christmas: Contest Closes November 21th at 5:00pm.

Thanks everyone!!

New contests!

So, I thought I would start off this post with a picture of Andrew and I helping to set up at Scrapfest on Thursday night. We have a table with wheels to bring stuff in from the truck...and that is how Andrew transported me for most of the evening. Life is good!

Anyways! The poll for determining our next contest is now closed, and Remembrance is our winner with 7 votes! Christmas had 3 votes. SO...this is my thinking...since Remembrance seems to be a hot category (and that I just had Mom in panic mode for a week trying to make a Remembrance line...) I'm going to run that contest until November 14 (my birthdayyyy!!! huzzah!!).

Howeverrrrr...I do realize that Christmas is coming up - and quick (66 days, 1 hour, and 44 minutes to be exact....but who's counting?). I was thinking that all of you are probably Christmas card makers instead of store bought - because personally, if I ever got caught buying one from the store I would probably be shot on the spot by all of my friends. SO!! The month of November is going to have a little more action than the last few months! The Remembrance contest will close on November 14, and the Christmas contest will close on November 21. There's a week break, but you can send in entries to either contest at any time. P.S. for you Chapel Road fans, we do have a new release of Chapel Road Christmas stamps out if you haven't checked them out already!

The Halloween contest is ending on Sunday, October 24 - which is coming up really soon! We already have some entries, and from what I hear you bloggers are getting CrEaTiVe...I like it!!!

Okay team - I made Mom do some damage by creating a Remembrance Day line...don't give her reason to kill me!! Eeeeek!!!! I know you couldn't live a day without seeing what trouble I get up to...and for you who have been asking...she hasn't kicked me out yet!! *phew*

Have a great night everyone!!

Remembrance Day Release!

Hi everyone!
I just got home from work and saw that Carol has been up to no good this afternoon!! Well, let me rephrase...no good in the sense that husbands/boyfriends would see it. She was card making with our brand new line (which has been released TODAY!!) that is all about Remembrance Day! Or, in the US, Veteran's Day.

I don't want to give you a history lesson, but incase you want a condensed version of why Remembrance Day is what it is...here it is!
Remembrance Day is such a special day that commemorates the end of World War I in 1918. November 11 is the day when Germany signed the Armistice which stopped hostilities. This was signed on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month...November 11, at 11:00am. Every year we not only remember the lives that were lost through military and civilian battles during the First World War, but also those who have given up their lives for the world to be the way it is today since then.

The poppy is a popular symbol of Remembrance Day. After battles had taken place, the landscape was barren. Soldiers were buried, and the once barren land were soon populated by poppies.

Due to the votes on the poll so far, we created this line specifically for you! And if it wins the poll, these will be your options to play with!

I understand that links in the blog have not worked in the past - but rest assured we have had them fixed so that they will take you to the site now!

Let me know what you guys think!!

Hiiiii!!! It's only a few days before the ol' mighty Scrapfest at Durham College in Oshawa!! Is anyone going? I won't be there the entire time - don't cry, it's okay - but my other work bellows my name much too loud these days. My Mamma (Carol) will be there...and I'll tell her that she has to be incredibly funny, charming, and everything that I am in order to make up for my absence....

Mom, please don't read this blog post. I like living at home. And if you are reading it...I'm just joking...obviously...8-) hehe

If you do go, I'll be there in spirit...if you know of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and have been following her releases...there was actually a pinup girl named after me! If you're ever so interested...see me in paper/rubbah form here! You see, my bloggers - I'm famous! And you were the first ones to be by my side! Well, okay, I'm not flattering myself...just pointing out how excited I can get!

Anyways my friends, I am currently working on a brand new line that Class Act is coming out with - and I think that it is quite honestly the best yet. If you're realllllllllllllly curious I'll give you a hint, and say it's pretty cultural...that's the clue for today! Anyways - there is less than one week left to make your vote count for our next contest!


P.S. For those of you who haven't been on the website recently, I have added some new categories:
6 Categories of Flowers
Fruits & Veggies
and Ice Cream

I'm working on getting up Easter (even though it's early), Dogs, and the new lines to be up super soon!

Helllo my Bloggin' Buddies!!

I hope everyone (well, in Canada anyways) has been having a wonderful long weekend!! Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to make sure that you guys make a vote for what you want our next contest to be! It's pretty important that if you want to have an extra reason to make cards that you have had a say in the matter! :-) As of right now Remembrance is winning - and we are working on some new Remembrance designs as we speak.

Remembrance is ahead with 3 votes, while Christmas, Fall, and Thanksgiving are trailing at 1.

Make your vote count! :-)

Enjoy the gobble gobble! Will post with some new exciting things soon!
