I'm still here!!

Whew!  It's been a whirlwind week or so.  I was in charge of the end-of-year banquet for the piano department at DS's arts high school.  It was tonight, so I finally have time to breathe.  This weekend was also DD's ballet performance.  It's been crazy, but I hope to get back to stamping tomorrow and have something new to share with you soon.  Thanks for stopping by!

A Muse Studio Blog Hop!

Happy Monday!  Today I am participating in my first ever blog hop with some fellow A Muse Studio Creative Consultants.  The theme this month is "Congratulations" to celebrate all those upcoming graduations, babies, weddings... you name it.  You should have arrived here from Doris' blog.  If not, you can go back to the beginning at Sami's blog so you can see all the A Muse goodness.  There may be blog candy, so be sure to check everyone out!

I seem to be continuing my orange kick from last week, and here is the card that I came up with.  As I have a teenager in the house, I wanted to make a card that could be used for either graduation, or another high school milestone.  My DS goes to an arts school and there are always performances, adjudications, and auditions that he and his friends participate in.  ETA:  To line up the sentiment multiple times, I used my Stamp-a-majig stamp positioner, which you can find on page 107 of the
A Muse Studio catalog.  And yes, it took a couple tries.:)
Please leave a comment to win some of the supplies used to make this card.  All are available from A Muse Studio.  As my UPS man did not make it here Friday due to bad weather, you will have to check back later today for a picture of the blog candy!  Included will be a yard each of the ribbon used in this card and a paper sampler.  Comments for blog candy will be accepted until noon EST Friday, May 6th.

ETA:  My UPS man arrived.  Here is your blog candy!  This is my first shipment of the Shimmer Couture paper.  OMG - I am in love!  You will receive a sheet each of the Shimmer Couture Damask Cherry, Shimmer Couture Damask Onyx,  Polka Dot Orange, and Ocean papers as well as a yard each of the ribbons shown.
Thanks for looking, and don't forget to check out Melissa's blog next!
