Hi Everyone,

First I want to remind you if you submitted a card to our WCMD Challenge using any of our products and you didn't contact us for your free gift - today is the deadline to email your choice and all the details to Also, if you didn't enter my 'What's your fav designs' blog contest you still can HERE (until Oct 11) and be entered to win a $25.00 gift certificate. So far, 88 people have left great suggestions and feedback!

I realized I forgot to add the link in the last post to DT member Pam Hootens Christmas Giveaway to win one of our Christmas Vintage Postcard Kits, a Image & Journal Notes Booklet and our new Merry Christmas Creative Scraps! Look at this wonderful holiday planner Pam designed using one of the chipboard postcards! You can get all the details and enter on Pam's blog HERE!

Here is the card DT member Linda Duke created for our WCMD challenge at Splitcoast using an image from our Merry Christmas Creative Scraps. Details are HERE on Linda's blog.
Here is the card DT member Heidi Blankenship created for our WCMD challenge at Splitcoast using an image from our Christmas Image Booklet and paper from our Earthy Paper Pad. Details are HERE on Heidi's blog.

Here is the adorable card DT member Michelle Kovack created for our WCMD challenge at Splitcoast using a cute image from the Christmas Scraps and details are HERE on Michele's blog.

Here is the card DT member Marisa Grosson created for our WCMD challenge at Splitcoast using our new Season's Greetings Stamp Set. Details are HERE on Marisa's blog.

Michelle Van Etten has been busy making some very pretty samples! I love this layout of her that she created using the butterflies, lady and butterfly boy she cut out of the back of our Earthy Paper Pad and she used the 'mother' postcard from the Family Postcard Kit. You can see the cute cake and card she also created HERE in our Sample Gallery.

Lori Lynn Washburn has been hosting the last 2 weekly challenges over at Splitcoast and there lots of great samples and inspiration! This is a card Lori created for the Handmade Embellishments challenge she hosted last week and you can see every one's embellished cards HERE. This week she has a Make it Shine Challenge HERE and anyone can join in the fun and post a card!

Look at this pretty little postcard DT member Vicki Chrisman created using an image from our new Postcard Kits! This one is from the Family set. You can see more postcards she made from the Baby Boy, the Best Buds and Kitchen Mail Kits HERE in our Sample Gallery and there are some other great samples other people have submitted that you have to check out!

I had to share these next photos that I made for Vicki's birthday Oct 7 because they are so fun and easy to make using a free program over at and they have so many samples you can choose from and then add a personal photo of anyone you pick and places their face in the right spot! So yes, this is Vicki's face on this angel and I thought that was so appropriate as Vicki is coming here to Langley BC, Canada next week (Oct 16 & 17/09) to teach 3 classes at the BC Creative Expo Show and one is a Fairy class! You can get all the details about the classes HERE and on Vicki's blog HERE. Plus we are hosting the Girlfriends Go Vintage Crop Sat night! Here is another photo I did for Vicki's birthday and emailed to her. I amazed at how it can take the photo and place it in all the right spots, here on the sidewalk and in the picture next to it! I think this one looks cool and artsy and they also have one of old vintage stamps that puts faces on the stamps.

I saved the best for the last! Here is a photo of Vicki tattooed on Beckhams bare chest and it also put the photo on his phone! Hilarious, fun, free and you can save the pictures to email to friends.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! If you can make it to the BC Creative Expo - please come see us! We have 4 booths at the show, 3 classes, make-n-takes, a free gift with every purchase - plus I'm doing a flea market table and clearing out all sorts of older product, supplies, vintage postcard and more!
Wishing you joy & creativity!
