Aren’t they amazing??????

In other news, today through Sunday, we are having a Take $10 special!  If you guys like it, maybe we’ll do it every Thursday-Sunday, so let me know.  What is a Take $10 special?  I’m SO glad you asked!  Each week, we will take a more recent set and offer it for just $10!  Only ONE PER customer though…

This weeks Take $10 is Funky Flowers, and you can see a gallery of creations made using this set HERE.

Also – our Weekly Spotlight this week is Peerless Watercolors, and we are offering them at 25% off through Friday (4.24.09).  We only have a few of the Small Bonus Packs left, and the other two are sold out, so if you’re interested, don’t wait!

If you want to learn more about them, we have THE most awesome HTDT? tutorials HERE!

Ready for a Cosmo, Girl?

I know I am!  Unless there’s an Appletini available…  Welcome to our Mid-Month Hop Around the Block!  I am your first stop on the eye candy trail, and then you’ll head to Cammie Camster’s blog for futher instructions.

We’ve got two new sets debuting today, and the one I’ve chosen to work with is What a Girl Wants, by our newest Illustrator Amanda Baird.  Isn’t she AWESOME!!!!

We also have an oh-so-familiar sight around these parts with our newest BC Dzyns set, Text Ya Later.  My guess is it’s a familiar sight for anyone with a teenager nearby!

We’ve got all sorts of fun stuff going on today in the Forum, including a HTDT? Copic Tutorial, so you will WANT to be there!

And after you read her incredible tutorial, you’ll want to take advantage of our WUW Hook-Up today which is buy any 36 piece Copic Marker set (on sale for $125, today only!) and receive a FREE Perfect Paper Panel Pack (valued at $3.95!)

That’s about it for me, so enjoy your Hop and hope you find the polymer gold at the end!

Want to win the May VIP kit?

I am going to copy and paste this directly from Carole’s blog as I am out of time this AM!

There’s Still Time!

Hey, gang!  I just read about something in the MFT Idol Forum I thought I’d pass along to you.  The field of MFT Idol contestants has been whittled down to the Top 6.  Every week they’ve come up with AMAZING creations, that I know have taken enormous amounts of imagination and energy to create.  They’ve been give this week off to take a little breather, for which I’m sure they are eternally grateful!

In the meantime, My Favorite Things is sponsoring a Judges’ Contest.  Who are the judges?  Anyone who is a member of SCS and eligible to vote for their favorite MFT Idol contestants.  (And if you’re reading this blog, that most like means YOU!)

What’s in it for you?  Well, if you win, you get this month’s VIP Collection for free!!!  That’s more than $50 worth of delicious MFT stamps and goodies!

So how do you go about winning this fabulous bounty?  All you have to do is create a project — whatever your wee heart desires; but I warn you: you’ll want to bring your ‘A Game’ — using MFT stamps, and upload it to your SCS gallery using the keyword MFTIDOLJUDGE by 10 a.m. EST on Tuesday, April 15th.

An MFT panel will consider all of the entries and narrow them down to 10, and then a poll will open up at 10 p.m. EST on the 14th for the public to vote for their favorite from the Judges Contest Top 10. The poll will close 24 hours later.

It's a WUW and Idol Voting Day!

We’ve got ALL kinds of stuff going on today for WUW, starting with your WUW Hook-Up, which is a 4 for $50 deal!  Make sure you read it all the way through, the details are important!

Don’t forget today is voting day for MFT Idol!  After today’s vote, we will be down to our Top 6.  You can see all the incredible entries HERE.  The theme this week was a card using Build a Bouquet, so I am quite excited to see how they will think outside of the box using a solid set!

Amy is this weeks HTDT? hostess with a tutorial on using heat embossing over dry embossing.  You can check it out HERE.  Learn. Grow. Know. with MFT.  Then, you can apply what you’ve learned in the WUW Challenge!

Moving Day!

Hi all!  It’s been a busy week here in Eustis, as we moved our inventory to a packing warehouse!  These pics are of hubby taking the second load to the warehouse.  Notice the cute little pink and black displays??  He built them for me!  Isn’t he the best??

You guys will get to see them if you are coming to the FL Summer CHA show because we will have a booth and be teaching a class at the event!  There will be some Guest Star Stampers there with me, so I hope you’ve saved the dates. (July 31st and Aug 1st)

Are there any local FL stampers??  I’ve been thinking about teaching a class at my LSS, so I thought I would check!  Or would anyone be interested in a weekend retreat?  Some of my fellow manufacturers and I had chatted for a while about creating a land based event.  Any takers??
