Sorry, for the delay, I started this post yesterday but just finished it. We have a random winner for the Landscape and Portrait 3D Shadow Box Frames & 3 sheets of Fairy Scraps. Congratulations goes to # 48 Patty Jo. That made me happy as she has been a long time regular visitor and appears to love Vicki Chrisman's Shadow Box Cards!

Vicki recently created a step by step video HERE showing how to put these Shadow Box Die Cuts together. They are easy, fun and we are madly getting Class Kits made up for every CHA store order. They will be available in sets of 3 frames in our Shopatron Store next week!

Look at this beautiful portrait shadow box card DT member Heidi Blankenship created using paper from our Classic Paper Pad, Flourish Stamps, the script stamp from our Journal set, the Altered fairy Scraps, Gold Glimmer Mist and some sparkly embellishments. Plus, go see Heidi's fabulous Mermaid card HERE!

When Cindy tried adding our Alice in Wonderland Stamp set to the Shopatron store yesterday it wouldn't load but it's fixed now and has been added as well as Party Cats HERE! When I tested Party Cats it seemed like there was a problem with the piano stamp but I think it was the bad table I stamped on at the warehouse as the same set stamped great here at the office. When using larger stamps, remember to apply firm pressure over the center of the stamp.

You have to check out the challenges using our products over at Splitcoast. There is a wonderful group of regular ladies that love to participate and take turns hosting the challenges. Anyone can join in the challenges, so come play!
Lori Lynn Washburn hosted the last challenge to 'create a card for men' and her is the cute one she made using an image from our Joys of Life Booklet.
You can see the Men's Card Gallery HERE.

Marcy Talbert hosted the challenge before that for 'Something Old & Something NEW' and this is the adorable card she made using our Couple of Cuties stamp set! You can see the entire gallery of cards people created HERE.

The challenge before that one was hosted by Pammy Jo for a 'Piggy Back Card' (a card on a card) and she created this pretty card using our Friends & Flowers Vintage Cuts. You have to check out all the other wonderful cards you can see HERE in the piggy back gallery.

The Winter Olympics are taking place here and the Olympic torch passed through Surrey yesterday on it way to Vancouver and eventually up the mountain to light the torch to start off the games next week! We drove up the street at 6 pm to see the torch pass by and this older lady was taking her turn jogging with it (see photo below). I don't know how you get picked but it would be fun! Our side of the street was lined with people cheering her on.
The city has gone into full celebration mode and the traffic is crazy as 1000's of athletes and tourists arrive. I hope the weather gets colder as they have been trucking in snow daily to Cypress Mountain where some of the games will take place. Whistler still has lots of snow. Scott (my honey) retired 2 weeks ago but is driving a big fancy bus with NBC crew to all the events.
I will fill you in on the excitement during the next couple of weeks.

Come back and visit tomorrow so you can print the free printable Valentines images I will post. I have a retro and old fashioned style for you!
Wishing you all joy & creativity!

Just wanted to post a trick for using large images. I always stamp over a piece of foam when using clear stamps. The image gets completely pressed into all parts of the paper this way. Some people use a mouse pad.
The shadowbox project is beautiful.
