Sponsor Spotlight - My Favorite Things

Are you having as much fun as I am, during all the festivities around here!?  What a blast! I'd like to share some fun news from My Favorite Things with you today, taken straight from the MFT blog (with permission of course!)

What’s an MFT VIP? She’s the Who’s That Girl? that wants what’s new before anyone else gets a chance to have it.

And that’s exactly why we’re starting the MFT VIP package!

Starting now, the last Wednesday of each month, MFT will release its VIP Package.

It will always contain unreleased sets, and products that are either unreleased or Brand Spankin’ New.

AND…it will always contain PERKS not available to ANYONE else!

So, not only do you get stuff before anyone else, you also get extra stuff that no one else gets! How cool is that?

There are a limited number of the VIP Packages, and they are available for ONE DAY. When the clock strikes midnight, they are gone, gone, gone.

This month, the MFT VIP Package contains:
Digital Girl the February Who’s That Girl? set
Summer Ribbon Bundle (unreleased) 5 yards each of 5 yummy colors, for a total of 25 yards!
MFT Adornments Summer Crystal Collection (unreleased) Approx. 25 each of 4 incredible colors, for a total of 100, 4mm Swarovski Crystals!
For $43.85, you will receive your MFT goodies a week early, with free US shipping AND a perks flyer that will be in your order! 

That sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me! Be sure to head over to the MFT website and check it out!

Sponsor Spotlight - DRS Designs

It's Sponsor Spotlight Day! Let's get to know DRS Designs!

DRS Designs is a small family owned company. We have been in the rubber stamp business since 1955 and have been thru many changes since that time. No change was more significant than the addition of art stamps in 1992. In the ensuing 16 years, we have grown our collection to more than 1000 original stamp designs with more being added each month. We offer online shopping from our website, a monthly club - Rubber Mania Monthly, as well as a retail store in Bethel, CT. If you are in the area, stop by our cozy Victorian shop and say hello!
We offer high quality, wood mounted rubber stamps as well as unmounted rubber depending on your preference. We have a 10 person design team and a blog that is updated daily by each member of the team. Every two weeks on a Monday, we host a blog challenge and invite you to join us! Our online site features a gallery for each designer as well as a customer gallery. We hope you will participate in our challenges and email us your cards so we can include them in our growing galleries.
We offer a wide assortment of images, sentiments (serious and humorous) as well as easy background images and technique stamps such as our stained glass and our plaid stamps.
You can find us at
www.drsdesigns.com and http://drsdesignblog.blogspot.com

Be sure to go visit the design team members at DRS, and see what they've done with this week's sketch!
