Next we up we have a give away by Krista Smith...
You know I love all her wonderful stamps and digi's..
This is from Krista's Blog
"This year, one of my personal goals is to give. Give.
It is a lot harder than the little word lets on...Things come up and get in the way...
And life is busy...
And then I look back and a year is gone. Gone, and I haven't really given anything.
Sure, I always have big plans. I say a lot of prayers, hoping God gives me the opportunities to give to others. Meanwhile, I'm just wasting time. Time moves fast...And there is no better time than now.
Seek opportunities, friends.
They are everywhere.
You all have given much to me this year-- new friendships. A great home business that I truly love. The encouragement to push through the days when I feel like a failure. And daily-- your sweet messages and kind words-- they are uplifting and remind me that people are beautiful and loving and gracious.
So, I'd love to join together and give to a great cause.
Next week, I will have two digis available. They will be free downloads. There will be a donate link where you can, instead of purchasing the digis for $4.00 each, give what you can to St Jude's Children's Research Hospital. I will collect the money for one month, and at the end, donate the entire amount collected from these two digis to the hospital. I am also in the process of being approved for an event at the hospital...so there may be an opportunity in the near future to send me Christmas cards to bring to the children and families this coming holiday season.
If you are not familiar with the hospital, please click the link.
If you'd like to help spread the word about the digi release, please place this button on your sidebars. I will have the stamps available next week. *Link to Krista's post HERE, please.*"
This month we will be adding some texture to Jack's pants.
So head over and grab a kit so you can color along with me and the video.
I'm making all monthly kit video's private from now on so you'll need to purchase a kit to receive the link.
I want to give the Monthly Kit purchasers that little something special.
Rubber stamps are the perfect tool for enhancing your artwork. They are popular for their versatility and their ability to be used nearly anywhere. Stamps can also be embellished in a number of ways. Most art suppliers offer a wide variety of rubber stamps of different shapes and sizes with handy shapes, text, and images. If you’re an art student or aspiring artist, consider art college as a way to channel your creative focus and make a career out of your passion.
Stamps are commonly used to enrich birthday cards, graduation cards, wedding cards, anniversary cards, get well cards, and thank you cards. Specialized stamps are always around for any and all of the holidays, and they’re not limited to Christmas and Valentine’s Day—surprise your friends and loved ones with stamped cards for Thanksgiving, Easter, the fourth of July, or Hanukah.
Whenever you use rubber stamps, remember to use a hard, flat, stable surface like a table. Be sure to remove dust and particles off of the rubber with a sponge or stamp cleaner to ensure a clean mark. Also, when you stamp, use your fingers to apply firm, even pressure to the stamp without rocking it in order to avoid a blurry image, and make sure your stamp is well inked!
Use rubber stamps in your scrapbook! Most professional scrapbook makers use rubber stamps for their creations, and it’s easy to see why. There will always be a stamp related to the subject on a page, or even an aspect of the topic. You can even get stamps with days and months to commemorate the dates of your memories instead of writing them in. Rubber stamps will provide a delightful contrast to photographs, cutouts, and the other media on the page.
You can also switch things up and make a pattern by forming a series of stamps on a page (this works for cards, too).
