Hi. I'm Donna and the owner of a business called Luv2Emboss. I've been crafting since the moment I could color with a crayon without eating it first! I have been embossing with Lasting Impressions' Brass Templates for 17 year and I am on their Design Team.. I also love to craft with rubber stamps and I hope the cards and projects I display will perk your interest to try a new craft or play with an old one! Enjoy. :-)

STAMPENDOUS PINK YOUR LIFE CHALLENGE

I have recently been asked to join a Design Team in Australia! OMG ... can I really do this? I have embossed with brass templates for so many years and I have gradually moved my crafting addiction into rubber stamping as well. One of my very best friends, Aussie Julie, is a distributor for a lovely stamp company called Stampendous. Julie runs a challenge blog every month using Stampendous Stamps ... and now this is where I come in! :-) She has asked me to join two very talented ladies on her Design Team, Dot and Robyn. Julie, as the owner and host of that team, is an artist herself, and it goes without saying that I have admired her work for years.

Because I am new to the team, and my first challenge blog, I have copied the "rules" from Design Team Member Dot as follows:

If you are from Australia then please type the name of your town in the comment that you leave and you will be in the draw for an awesome Pink Your Life stamp.

Here is how it works:

All you need to do is leave a comment on this blog and leave the Aussie town that you live in (click on the 'comment' link at the bottom of this post and leave a comment) to be in the draw to win this stamp. An extra entry is given for each of the designer's blogs that you leave a comment on (listed below). My blog = 1 entry 4 blogs = 4 entries.
Pink Your Life ... with Pixies (Whisper Wall) is a gorgeous stamp designed by Nicoletta Zanelli, for Stampendous, and is part of the Pink Your Life series. Here are my two card samples using these adorable pixies! Thank you for stopping by and good luck! :-) Donna

    1. Wow Julie ... I'm excited to see a couple of comments and yep you got it right under the correct images! It's a wonder I got any of it right myself but I hope to do a better job next time and more timely. I so appreciate your positive comments. Thank you! :-)

  2. It looks like you've made the group of pixies stand out from the main card...it really grabs your attention. I've always loved your stitching edges and the triangular three dots...a definite trademark Donna card. Beautiful.
