Blog Hop Last Stop! Videos! Blog Candy! All Here!



Hello Precious People!
This is the third sneaky peeky I am giving you of my brand spank'n new debut release for Squigglefly Digital Stamps, AND, the LAST STOP on the Squigglefly Blog Hop today! Scroll to the end of this post to see the video demos!
I am so pleased to announce that High Hopes, the wonderful stamp company I illustrated for for over four years is letting Mudzie the Moose come play at Squigglefly now! (God bless Tina and Bethany!) He is truly grateful that he can play in both places, and still visit all of you as well! That is, if you invite him to your house (hint, hint!) I think he is going to want to pop into a lot of new images this fall and winter. He has missed being here with you! This image, as well as nine other new images (and many sayings to match) will be available for you to purchase and download starting tomorrow, Saturday the 19th!

If you want lots of chances to win ALL TEN of my new digi images, as well as THREE of my matching sentiments, start at the Squigglefly Blog and follow your hop instructions there! Every participating member of the SF Design Team is linked up, one after another to make it easy to do! Every time you comment on the DT's blog posts in the hop, your name will be entered in to the draw taking place tomorrow morning! Don't miss out! (not more than one comment per DT member please!)
TO SWEETEN THE DEAL, I am also giving away some RUBBER stamps from High Hopes, some TWINKLING H20 paints for you to try out, some bling, button brads and some trial size packs of the ever-more-popular FLOWER SOFT!
The name of the winner will be chosen by Yours Truly on Saturday morning using Random Integer Generator!
Here are a couple of piccy's showing what I am adding to the grand prize of 13 of my new releases for Squigglefly!:



Check out my sidebar to find some great service oriented stores that sell High Hopes!

Just a few of the Twinkles for you to try, but they include the skin tones I use most, namely Natural Linen, Mocha Rose, and Cinnamon Stick for shading skin!



I have thought about making hand drawn sentiments for awhile. I figure most stampers by now are computer savvy enough to make and print off their own whenever they want to. So I decided to make some whimsical, fresh, hand drawn sentiments that couldn't possibly be duplicated on a keyboard. I wanted them to look hand done, slightly off kilter, with a whimsical feel. Like the one on my card that says "Trick or Treat". It was fun to do!



I have been itching to get a new video made for you and I finally found the time to put one together for you! I did it in three parts because of the ten minute time limit on You Tube. The first video is around five minutes long, the second around six, and the third is just over eight minutes long. I love showing you how I paint! It is truly a joy for me to do! I hope you enjoy them!
I'll sign off here, with a hug and a prayer that you will be mightily blessed today!
