Introducing My Pink Designers!!

Hello Everyone!!  I want to take a minute to introduce My Pink Designers!  I am so happy to be able to work with these fabulous crafters.  You can check out their work by clicking on their blog link.  Their DT submissions will be featured in my upcoming Pink Gallery, so keep your eyes open!  

Let's show these Designers our love and support!  You will get to see Pink Designer projects from them once a week and I am so super excited!!



Julie W.
A little about me: I started card making roughly 13 years  ago and my passion for it hasn’t stopped.   I have worked as a free lance artist for a major chain specializing in paper crafting as well as taught  classes for the young and old alike.  I have 4 beautiful children ages 19, 18 and two at 17. My dear hubby, though not a paper crafter himself, is a blessing to me as well as a great encourager.  


Karla O.
About me:  I am a fairly new crafter. I've "specialized" in cards for almost a year.  I've only made about 3-4 scrapbook layouts, so my goal for these coming months is to get more layouts done :). When I'm not crafting, I'm working as a substitute teacher, spending time with the family, or baking.




Jo S.



I live in a small town in central Missouri with my husband, daughter and seven dogs. By day, I'm the bookkeeper for a public school district.  When I'm not at work, I can usually be found in my craft room working on a project or in front of my computer looking for ideas for my next project.  While I've been crafting for years, I didn't start making cards until after I received my Expression as a Christmas gift in 2008. Since then, cardmaking has become my passion (some would say obsession)! Anyway you look at it ... it's been wonderful!





Amy Y.
http://chocolatepaperstamps.blogspot.com/ 
I’ve been scrapbooking and paper crafting for 6 years. I enjoy taking photos of my family, nature, and my dogs. Mostly, I love spending time with my husband and two daughters.






Pam N.
simply-pam.blogspot.com 
I've been making cards now for a few years and have really gotten into it. Some say crazy addiction into it since I got my Cricut machine in August and my Gypsy for Christmas. On the non crafty side of things, I have 2 dogs, Tavis & Kyla. Totally crazy for them as well. I live in Utah. I'm 35, single, work full time and go to school part time.






Rowena
www.cropdivasdestination.com 
My name is Rowena and I am a lover of all crafts with a soft spot for scrapbooking. I love trying new techniques, designing layout sketches, and sharing my talents with others. Besides spending time crafting, I enjoy making memories with my husband Omar, and our wonderful children, Nicolas and Hailey.




Agnes K.
http://flowerdiscosscraphut.blogspot.com/
My name is Agnes aka flowerdisco. I love card making and paper crafts and I am in love with my Cricut products. I started a  blog last year to share some of my work and it has become part of my life. I am blessed with a son who has made my husband and I more than proud with all he has accomplished in his 17 years of age.  Now, I have accomplished something I have been reluctant to try until now, thanks to Robyn, who has faith in my work. My goal is to have fun with my hobby and maybe give you some inspiration.

My Pink Stamper Live Winners!

Good morning Everyone!!!  

Are you so super surprised that I have the winners posted already??  I am feeling on the ball this morning and 100% myself again.  I even got up early, went to the gym, and ran 2 miles!!  I have not ran in 3 weeks and I have a marathon in 4 weeks!!  Wish me luck on the training.  Today was much easier than I expected after having such a long break.  Thank goodness!!

Okay, on to the winners of this month's My Pink Stamper Live.  These were all picked with random numbers from www.random.org.  

Yesterday My Pink Stamper hit 3 Million Hits!!!  I am in total shock over this since I hit 2 million exactly 3 months ago.  You all are sooooo good to me and make me feel so special for all of your visits.  I am trying to think of what I can do this week to celebrate this awesome occasion!!!

Karlee leaves in 2 hours.  :(  We are sooo super sad!!  Keep her in your thoughts today as she drives the 12 and a half hour drive today.  She is going to do a straight shot.

On to the winners......

I would just love the Gypsy! With the kids and everyday life it's sometimes hard to find time for scrapbooking. I think with the Gypsy it might make it just a bit easier.

 Holly said...

I don't have a gypsy right now, but I think It would be great to have because:
1. I'm in school to be a teacher, and inspiration hits at random times...
2. I have 2 children, and we all know that kids don't always let you play with ds on your computer long enough to complete projects...
3. I like to share my ideas with friends, and this would be great to take to scrapbook nights with the girls,
4. PORTABILITY
5. i LOVE to play with new ideas! I think it would be great to have the opportunity to have a portable creative tool to express my creativity with! :)
Thanks for the opportunity to win

I'd just love to say yeah! I won the Gypsy, my hubby is too tight to buy one for me....I live and hope.

Congratulations to the 8 new DT members, can't wait to see what inspiration you bring.

I was trying to think out of the box for this new cartridge.  I decided that it would be nice to make a "miss you" card that was masculine, since most of you know I don't make many masculine cards.  Just not my strength.  I think it turned out great!
