Its all happening tomorrow! (ok the day after)



TOMORROW'S THE DAY!!! LOTS HAPPENING!!! (My post went live by mistake...I MEAN WEDNESDAY!!!!I'm so excited I don't know what day of the week it is! *doh!*)

HURRAAAAAAAAAY!

All very exciting and keeping me really busy.


It won't be long before the autumn/winter range of stamps designs that I submitted to Stampotique Originals, having been pressed and cut in the melting Arizona heat and beautifully mounted onto their wooden blocks by Carol and Jim, are being placed on the store shelves and uploaded onto sites. (How crazy is that, something I only dreamt of a few years ago).In fact its less than 48 hours to their official release!

AAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! (runs up and down the room in a crazed frenzy of excitement!!)

lol...sorry... lol ahem..

This time around I've put together a selection of stand alone images, backgrounds, abstract shapes and words which you will hopefully be able to combine with other stamps in your stash and the new releases by other Stampotique designers also out tomorrow.

The stamps are available direct from STAMPOTIQUE ORIGINALS in the USA, Happy Daze here in the UK and many more I'm pleased to say.
Moira at HAPPY DAZE is offering a pre-order/reserve now and pay once the stamps arrive, so if you have your eye on any of the designs pop along there and get your name down as its 'first come, first in a package and off to the post office' once they land (any time now).

I can't wait for my parcel to get here and make a few samples (the above photo is taken from my original drawing). As soon as I grab them out of my postmans hands and scribble something resembling a signature for him (takes ages printing and signing my long name rofl) I'll get making and blog some ideas :0)







ALSO............Wednesday is the first day/theme of the ART JOURNEY CHALLENGE! Very excited at the prospect. There's also gift certificate up for grabs for a lucky stamper so please spread the word via emails and forums. There will be a new theme on the 1st of every month, so nice and easy to remember!!
I'll be joining in with the challenges along with the rest of the DT and with YOU hopefully and also taking a turn to host in the future.The challenge can be found here on the Designers Blog.
Please pop back here on the 1st to hear lots more about it.
