What’s YOUR favorite cupcake flavor?? Giveaway! November 10, 2010

I  am in the process of creating a new line of cards and just launched my first one!  How cute is this cupcake card and coordinating envelope.  All cards in my new line will come with a coordinating envelope.  🙂  So, what does all this have to do with your favorite cupcake flavor??  I want to know your suggestions on color combos.  I work with PINK a lot and would love to break away from that a bit with this new line.  Give me your thoughts…

OH YEAH!!!  I almost forgot!!  One lucky commenter will receive a cupcake card and envelope free – and I will do my best to have you win one with YOUR favorite color combo/flavor.  No catches or gimmicks.  Simply comment on this post what color/flavor combo YOU’D like to see in my shop, and you just might win!!!!  🙂

P.S. -Make sure I know how to contact you!!  🙂

P.S.S. – Winner will be announced Sunday, November 14th after 5:00 pm CST ~~~~Congrats to Claire!!!!!  🙂

Spooky New GIVEAWAY!!!! October 4, 2010

Deadline for entries is 11:59 PM, CST on Friday, October 29th!!!  Winner will be announced on November 1st!  🙂

For this giveaway, I will be showing you a pic of the LOOT you will receive!!  Below you will see some summer and winter collections, Thanksgiving and Halloween collections, New Years collections, and a bunch of cute bugs (butterflies, dragonflies, and worms).  These are all things that have come out of my scrapbooking supplies.  My style has changed significantly since I first began paper crafting several years ago.  Some of this stuff is items that just aren’t my taste anymore or they are duplicates that I had (and decided to share).  Please note that while most of the sticker sheets you will receive are full, there are a couple that have been minimally used.  🙂

So how do you enter??  Simple!!

Please visit my shop, meldewdesigns, then come back here and tell me three things:  what your favorite item is in my shop, any suggestions (what to offer, how to make shop look better, etc.), and your email address!!  That’s it!!!  🙂

Psst!  By the way, we’re on Facebook now!!  Become a fan by clicking on the right sidebar and receive an extra entry in the giveaway drawing!

Thanks and good luck!

 

It’s been a while… October 2, 2010

Hey all…it’s been a while for sure!!  🙂  I have been a busy, BUSY chica!!  Sooo, what’s kept me posting??  Well, business has been good, I’ve had tests and projects due at school, was sick for a spell, AND I was the Matron of Honor/wedding coordinator of my bestie’s wedding!!  Whew…I get tired again just thinking of all of it again.  LOL

PLUS, I have been super busy at work in my studio and as always, you get to see what’s been cookin’ FIRST!

All of the pictures except the last two photos are some on my newest Christmas goodies.  What do you think?  The last two photos are a new alphabet die cut series that will be listed in my shop soon AND my color options for die cuts.  🙂  Please let me know if you have any questions!!
