WELCOME, WELCOME, WELCOME...

to what we'd like to think of as your new stampy home!

Around here we stamp, we create, we learn and we share. But most of all - we have fun!

This is a challenge blog. Meaning - we'll challenge each other. But we like to be a little more exciting, so we call 'em dares! We will issue two dares a month, usually the first and third Fridays of the month. We call these days "Fri-dare-days".

There will be prizes for winners and goodies for all participants. You'll also want to tune in on Tuesday, or "Tute-days" as we like to say. Watch a tutorial, see a demonstration, learn a crazy trick. You never know exactly what you'll see on Tute-day, so come prepared for anything!

Inspiration, encouragement, challenges, demonstrations, explanations and dares - all combined with a fair amount of enabling. You'll find it all at the Stampy Land Challenge blog.

There's a little grey mouse running around the blog. She likes to be called Stamper-Extraordinaire but we just call her Essie. She'll pop in from time to time - I'm sure she'll have an opinion when it comes to handing out prizes!

As for what's coming up - all I can say is LOTS! I'm working on getting things tweaked around here. Links are being updated, rules are being posted, guidelines are being figured out. However Friday morning the first Stampy Land Dare will be posted. You won't want to miss it!

If you happen to Facebook, over in the right hand side-bar is our Facebook link. You can LIKE us directly from here. It's fun to see who our friends are and where you're from. We'll be doing giveaways and contest directly on Facebook from time-to-time, so we'd love it if you'd LIKE us! As soon as we reach 50 LIKES we'll do a $10 gift certificate giveaway. When we reach 100 LIKES we'll do two more!

I leave you with this, a little beachy scene I colored-up today...


This is an adorable Penny Black stamp from the NEW Beach Day set. {If you click on the picture it'll enlarge!} She's been colored with Copics, cut out freehand, and placed on a shaped card that was cut with a brand-spankin' new Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Shape

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment on this blog post. I tend to answer comment-questions with comment-answers. So check back often.

thanks everyone! Welcome to the FUN!!

And just to clarify - this is a NEW blog, an ADDITIONAL blog, to serve as a separate site from our other blog.

BOTH BLOGS will be up and running - with slightly different features, contents and goals!

Nothing is wrong with our ScrapyLandblog.com site - this is just different and new!

One will feature more scrapbooking, and this one will feature more card making/stamping!

HOORAY for the Scrapy Land/Stampy Land family!

THANKS!
