PWCO Blog Hop and new stamps!!!

Welcome to the first PaperWorksCo (PWCO) blog hop and *my* first blog hop!!! I am honoured to be a guest designer for this exciting release! I have details on my projects, info on the amazing new Rachelle Anne Miller stamps, links to your next stop and a blog candy giveaway, courtesy of PWCO!!! Thank you, Peggy!

I was super excited to see these incredibly adorable images designed by none other than Rachelle Anne Miller (hence the RAM!) and I hope you are, too! You may find these new exclusive PWCO images right *here*!!! There are 4 adorable exclusive new images! I have long admired Rachelle's illustrations and am sooooo happy to hear she has designed some PWCO stamps!

My first card is to honour Peggy from PaperWorksCo; she is celebrating her 30th birthday this month! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PEGGY!!!

My second project is a framed piece of art. Since mother's day is coming up here in North America (May 9th), I took the duck image and iterpreted the middle duck to be the Mama. "Mãe" means mother in Portuguese and so I made this especially for my mother.

I have blog candy courtesy of Peggy! To be entered to win, please leave me a comment telling me the last wedding you attended and your favourite moment. You see, I am in Seattle attending the wedding of 2 wonderful friends (it was last night...I am a bit bleery eyed! LOL). I have many many favourite memories from last night, including sharing a table with my wonderful friends, some of whom I hadn't seen in a few years. I also loved seeing all our hard work (I helped with paperie stuff) come to fruition and be admired by all.

Edit: Draw will be on Sunday evening!

FYI - Peggy will be choosing one lucky commenter from one of the blogs to win the GRAND PRIZE - all FOUR new PWCO -Rachelle Anne Miller stamps!!! Woah!!! I wonder if I can enter...hmm.... *tee hee*

Edit: will post back shortly to tell you when the grand prize draw will be!
