Updates and a NEW Challenge!

Hi everyone! Just to let you know what's going on this month. We're having a soft release on the 15th, which consists of dies only. Be sure to keep an eye out on that! It's good stuff!

We're softening things up in the next few months... starting with THIS beautiful stamp and THIS die set we designed exclusively for our friends at Simon Says Stamp called Summer Garden available for purchase now! This is our second collab with Simon Says! The first set is HERE called Filled with Love.

Now for a fun announcement! There's a new addition to the ME Challenge Team. Please welcome Laurel Beard! She will be joining Lea Lawson, Lorraine Marasigan, and Alice Wertz. These fabulous ladies round out our Challenge Team... for now!

Sooo, speaking of which, that can only mean one thing! It's time for a new challenge! This one is a bit different as the prize is a spot on the ME Challenge Team for a 6 month term! The challenge will run all month, so you have lots of time to play along. I expect to see a ton of players, since you guys wiped out our entire release last month! I know many of you have ME stamps to play with!

Here's the inspiration photo, courtesy of www.raymondhom.com
