I have a WINNER!!!

I apologize for not posting the winner sooner but I did do what I said I was going to do on Monday. I wrote every one's name that left me some blog love up through the end of Sunday. I stopped at Caribou Coffee for my weekly $1.00 Monday Caribou Blend Coffee. Right before I left I had the young girl that waited on me draw a name. I did shake the entries up really good before I went up to her. It was kind of embarrassing but I did it. What the heck?? You only live once!! LOL. Anyway guess who she drew? I had the BIGGEST smile on my face...the one and only Donna B. I met Donna at The Pine City Scrapbooking Co. in Pine City, MN and we became friends. She is just a riot and her art will blow your socks off!! I then recruited her to join our monthly ATC (Artist Trading Club) and she is just a great addiction to our group. We have lots of fun every month swapping ATCs and visiting. My friends are the best and so talented!! I must say we all really enjoy Donna's *grungy* work (think Tim Holtz, Jr.) I know I'm in BIG trouble for writing all this on my blog but its the gosh darn truth!! Donna, I'll owl-ways love you because you are a HOOT. You are now the proud owner of this sweet little owl stamp and guess what? You HAVE to make me a card with it!! HOO HOO...Tami? Yes girlfriend that's correct!! I will then put your masterpiece on my blog. You must check out Donna's blog. She really is a crafty woman!! Just look for her name on my blog and you will see her work. Congratulations!! Because you live local I will bring your Memory Box Tuffed Owl stamp and a little surprise from me to our next ATC gathering at Smudges and NO I have not made my ATCs yet but I am sure Erin has!!

Monday was an OK day but NOT a good stamping day. Have you ever had one of those days when you try so hard that no matter what you can't get your card to come together? Man I hate when that happens. I was a busy bee all nite and into the wee hours of the am. I did watch Dancing with the Stars so I can dish with my Mom when I talk to her next!! I do have a COPIC 101 class to teach on Tuesday nite at Plymouth Anchor Paper and I'm still accepting signups. I've also been working on my Sunday, May 17 Mixed Bag card class at Lunds in Plymouth. That class starts at 12 noon and we will be making 5 cards if you are interested. I've also been working on my upcoming Graphic 45 card classes at two different Anchor Papers. So much to do and so little time. Well I must hit the hay and hopefully get no more grays. That's another thing on my to do list. Have a great day! I am wondering if the birthday gal in Colorado received her *special* birthday card that I made for my guest debut blog on the Memory Box blog??? Sorry about my lousy scan of the owl stamp but I tried. Catch you later hopefully Tuesday nite. Thanks for the visit. Tami Smile!! :')

Hi Tami - can you email me the details of your class tonight? It's Michelle H in MN.

I might be able to go, not sure yet.

I won, I won, I won! Is that the stamp we colored that day? I loved that owl. We had such a fun time coloring it at class. Thanks so much. I can't wait to see you. I have not started my ATC's yet. Maybe I will surprise you and not do grunge. (yeah right)

Congratulations to Donna for winning a great stamp and hi to the special birthday girl in Colorado. We miss you!!! Tami, would it be 'legal' to post pictures of your ATC designs? I'd love to see them.

Mary said...

Tami, your so sweet. congratulations to Donna. That is one awesome stamp from memory Box.

Yes Tami, I do have those days where my cards do not go together the way I thought they would. Heck I have been having that problem for months. :)

I will call you soon.

No my ATC aren't done yet. The garage sale has be so behind. I do have it designed and all the paper cut, just not assembled yet. Congrats. Donna, I'm sure you will think of something out of this world to do with this little hoot.
