Happy Valentine's Day, Moxie Fab Stamp Giveaway and New Samples!

Hi Everyone, Happy Valentines Day!

I have the new winner listed below, plus a link to a great  BIG Clear Art Stamp Giveaway at Moxie Fab  by Cath for Cherish, Sing For Joy, Mini Frames, Price Tags and Lacey Patterns.  Just leave a comment there (not here) to be entered to win all 5 Clear Art Stamp Sets
 Cindy van Koll, our graphic designer made the bouquet above and card below with our Heart to Heart Digital Art Stamp Set. She just shrunk the hearts down smaller.
Congratulations to #18, Sylvia from Little Treasures who was the 2nd winner to win all our new printable items I showed all the themes.

DT member Darlene Pavlick was so sweet and sent me a digital card she colored using our Garden Girl Digital Art Stamp Set.  She said she used her new Spectrum Noir alcohol markers but she just got them recently so is still practicing.  I think it looks fabulous.
 She says she didn't pre-treat her image but she heard that these papers work best with alcohol markers for blending: Neenah, GinaK Pure Luxury, and Cryogen White. 

I planned to come back and add my test results using Copics with our Digital Stamps but all the Copic Markers are at Cindy's house, so Vicki tested this Valentime image she printed last week with no problems. She's waiting for an order of ink so can't test a 'freshly printed image' but I would use a heat tool or hair dryer if you want color right awayEach printer and ink is different but I also own a Canon Pixma ix6520 and use 'no name ink' from  without any problems using water colors on my Valentine Mini Album.   

 Here are some super cute new treat samples that DT leader Vicki Chrisman made with our new Adorable Easter Egg Printables.  You can see samples with the Victorian Eggs on this post if you missed them

 Look at this super pretty birdie card Joan Ervin created using our Bird Lover Stamp Set. She also used some other stamps and you can get her supply list through the link. I adore the fabric rose and twine she added.  This is one of the stamp sets in the Moxie Fab Giveaway.

We are hooked on Downton Abbey, the UK TV series, that is Scott, myself and my mom who I call upstairs to watch with us. It's starts out in 1912 and the mansion decor and characters are fascinating! Past DT member Julie Campbell told me about it but I had already missed a season and wanted to start from the beginning. Then our daughters gave it to me for my birthday in Jan. We are on season 3 now and I don't want it to end!

If you still need a Valentine card, here's our Free 2013 Printable and links to past ones. Plus, a link to yummy Valentine recipes on  Owner, Ginny, has the best recipes and weight watcher friendly.  I want the chocolate parfait! 

 Don't forget to enter the Big Stamp Set Giveaway over at Moxie Fab!
 Wishing you joy and creativity
