Big News, A Big Giveaway, A Big Contest and A Little Valentine Love

First, a Little Valentine Love....Isn't that little Monkey just the cutest?  I will give you all the details in a minute but first.....

..
The BIG News...I've been asked by the talented ladies at Digital-Ink Co. to join their team of super talented designers.  I have a link on the sidebar so you can go and visit all their blogs.  Be prepared to be inspired.


 For those of you who may not know Digital-Ink Co., they are a team of very talented stamp creators who have joined together to bring you some awesome digital stamp creations...their blog links are on the side bar as well.   Be sure to sign up for the newsletter to receive a free stamp with every issue and get all the latest sales and news about new stamps.


Ok, now for my Little Valentine Love...Monkey Around Love set...That adorable little monkey can be found at the Digital-Ink Co.   He's the creation of Sue from Beary Dust Stamps.   The challenge at Digital-Ink Co. was to make something that inspired Love.  I re-sized my little Monkey Around and printed out several images.  He's colored with Prismacolor pencils and baby oil.   I colored 4 heads and 4 arms so that I could cut them out and give him some dimension using foam tape.  And yah...since he's new, he qualifies me for the challenge at ABC Challenge blog to use something new and the Crazy 4 Challenges to create a Valentine themed card AND the Digital Tuesday challenge to use an animal!   Here's a closer look...

The sweet Scalloped Card and bag/box template came from The Cutting CafeI think this bag template is my all time favorite.  It holds more than the other templates out there and comes with a variety of shapes for the window...how cool is that?  If you love him as much as I do he will be in my Etsy shop.  Now keep reading for The Big Contest!

Supplies:  Stamps - Beary Dust Monkey Around
Templates - The Cutting Cafe
Paper - Papertrey Ink
Accessories:  printer, clear acrylic sheet, foam tape, Prismacolor pencils, baby oil, white marker, ribbon, Spellbinders circle dies, bling
Now for the Big Giveaway and The Big Contest..scroll down for the details.
.. 
Just make a Valentine/Love inspired creation and link it here.  If you use the word "Wish" you get 2 entries.  Be sure to follow all the directions including posting this giveaway image on your blog.  Make sure to sign up as a follower while you're there so you can get in on future contests/giveaways.  To make the celebration even better and celebrate my new DT spot with the Digital-Ink Co....just leave me a comment and follow my blog,  and I will draw a winner using Random number selector on Wednesday,  Feb. 8th. for a grab bag of ribbons...lots of ribbons!
