OUR READERS

First of all, thank you all so much for playing along with us. It's our pleasure to have you share your beautiful creations with us.

Secondly, I must apologize for adding links under your names unstead of linking to your name. I cannot, for the life of me figure out how to do that. Tami has told me twice but I simply can't make it work. :) If I miss someone, please let us know so that I can add you on the next update.

We have a winner...

...of a Doodlebug Simply Sweet Alphabet Stamp set

...that is being donated by one of our designers, Lea

...and the winner is...

Ashley Harris!

Congrats. :)

Onto our readers cards:

Final Prize Winners!!!

Well, other than the grand prizes, here are the final prize winners for the CPS Card Sketch Contest. Please email me (link on the right) with your contact information so I can get your prizes taken care of.

Note** I posted the wrong link for Kandis' card this morning. Her Back to school card is here.


Wendy Malichio won the Cosmo Cricket prize pack with her Thankful Card

Deborah won a $25 I'm a Scrapoholic gift certificate with her Thank You Card


Iralamija won the Lime Tart prize pack for her Thanks Card


All of the prizes given away so far were voted on by the CPS designers; and, I have to say it was rather difficult picking from so many wonderful entries. But, our task was easy...we got to pick around 20 winners. The grand prize winners were chosen by Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine and for them it wasn't so easy...they only got to pick two. Those two talented winners will be announced tomorrow morning. Congrats to everyone!!

More chances to win a prize?? YES!

Yes, there is still a chance to win a prize! Designer Lea Lawson has donated a great set of Doodlebug stamps for our next prize giveaway. To win this prize all you have to do is complete (or have completed) a card from CPS #17, CPS #18, or the color challenge (posted below) and post a link to your card(s) by midnight on Sunday June 24. Kim Hughes will post reader updates on Monday and announce the winner of the prize drawing then.

Color Challenge--Monochromatic

Well, we are a week behind on the color challenge....so, that means there will be one for both this week *and* next week. The challenge for this week was a simple one. The designers were asked to create cards with a monochromatic color scheme. Here were some of the results:

So I'm sure you'll be seeing more prizes and fiun today. And for those wondering....The grand prize winners will be announced tomorrow. ;)

Wednesday, June 20, 2007

Ok...just one more...

because this is someone who I noticed has been here checking on us and commenting all day.....one last winner for today.......since she is actually one of the winners.......


a $50 Creative Impressions gift certificate goes to Sherrie for her beautiful carved initials card.


Congrats!! If you will send me your address I'll get the info to Creative Impressions so they can get your gift certificate to you :)

And the winner is.....

In case you didn't find the clues. The winner of the scrappin trends prize was Jen Fass and here card is HERE. Jen please email me withyour address and I will forward it to the owner of Scrappin Trends so she can send out your prize.

Also while I am getting addresses....I need the address for Daniela because her Thanks Card won her a huge variety of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Congrats ladies!

ohhh...there it is!!

Looks like I have found my list!! Ok....now just a wee bit longer while I wait for my helpers. I can tell you this....


To find out who the next winner is you will have to check out some of the CPS designers. I have some designers who will be leaving clues to both the prize and the winner. Those clues should be available some time between now and 3:30 CST. (4:30 eastern). So, all you have to do is find them and put them together to find out who won the next card contest prize and what they won. ;)

While you are waiting.....

While I am cleaning and searching for that trusty prize list here is a way to find out yet another winner today (that means there could be at least *two* announced today!).


I just added more names to the blogs that link here list..that put us up to 48. I love seeing every one's creative cards and other work and those links are a great way to find them. I *know* there are lots more and would love to see the list grow...so if you're not on the list post a link to your blog here. Once I have 20 more to add to the reader's blogs list I'll post another winner. Pretty simple, huh? ( A lot simpler that cleaning up this mess I have, I can guarantee that)

Tuesday, June 19, 2007

oooh...I have PRIZES

Well, I am sure you have all be (im)patiently wating to find out who the contest winners are...and we have LOTS of them. Well....I know who the grand prize winners are now so I can start giving out prizes!! First for the grand prize winners...oops...no, have to wait for those (I take bribes in stamps and chocolate, btw). Lets see.... how about one of the Karen Foster Design prize packs ?? Let's see (checking my handy prize list)...*one* of the winners for the Karen Foster prize is.....................


Rebecca Cross with her Trick or Treat card.


Congrats Rebecca!! If you will email me (link on the right) I will get that prize out to you.


Now there are still LOTS (did I say lots??) of prizes left and you just never know when one might be announced so be sure and check back very soon. I will also be updating either this evening or tomorrow morning with more CPS #18 designs....hmm....and maybe even another prize ;)

CPS #18 and the latest news

Well if you are a regular CPS reader and just joining us today you might have noticed out new blog "makeover". Being the typical female I just suddenly felt the need for an updated new look. We all have so much fun here I thought the look should be just as fun :-)


That being said, I am also excited to tell you of another change to the fun times here at CPS. We have a new designer!! As of today Lisa Strahl is has joined us. I am sure many of the stampers out there will recognize her awesomely talented work. Lisa, aka Mona Lisa, is a recent alumni of the Splitcoast Stampers Dirty Dozen. I have to say their loss it totally a gain for us here as CPS. Welcome Lisa!


I also want to let everyone know that we are waiting on Scrapbook and Cards Today to let us know their picks for the card contest. As soon as we hear from them we will start the fun of announcing the winners and sending out those amazing prizes. Hopefully the wait will not be much longer as I am sure many of you are on pins and needles by now. :)


Now, for the moment you have been waiting for. Our weekly CPS!!

Latest CPS News

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start. Things are busy here at CPS, as always. the votes are coming in for the card contest so hopefully we will get to start naming some of the winners soon.


We still have several CPS designer cards to post for this week's CPS so you won't want to miss those. There will also be some new sentiments posted later in the week as well.


I believe I am up to date on the "Blogs that post here" list. If your blog isn't on the list be sure and let us know....you might even see your blog featured here as a "blog of interest" ;).


You might have also noticed there are a few changes on the blog as well. One requested change is to add a subscription option. If you are one of those who forget to check back frequently and would like the posts emailed to you you can do that now through the link on the right and then you will get an email from Feedblitz with all the latest posts.


I am working on a few other updates and changes as well so keep an eye on us ;).


Also, don't forget to share your card creations with everyone as well. There will be another reader update later in the week.


Have a great week!!
