Welcome Alpha Stampers!

Hey all you fabulous Alpha Stampers welcome to my blog. Wish I could be here to greet each of you, usher you into the door, take your coat and hand you your favorite beverage (I'm serving everything coffee, tea, memosas etc...) but alas I can't. Please sit back and enjoy the eye candy, feel free to ask questions, I promise to get to each and everyone one in time, and then move onto the next blog.

I created this piece especially or shall I say in honor of todays "visit." The background paper, colage images, and ribbon can all be found at Alpha Stamps.

I used the fabulous metal alphabet and number set for the first time on this project, so I got to learn something new. Thank you if you helped me through the process of finding a bench block and answering all my questions.

Now onto the fun stuff!

I have some Spring themed blog candy for one special hoper. All you have to do is leave a comment that you passed through.

Some of the wonderful odds and ends included are:

Purple Feathers

2 Giant Fabric Leaves


Bottle Caps

3 different ribbons

spring themed collage images (AS of course)flowers

crepe paper cut outs to make the flowers

etc etc etc...

I filled this lovely organza bag to bursting with the goodies. And it needs a new home.

I'll announce the winner on Monday April 4th in the Yahoo Group and you'll have 24 hours to claim it or I draw again!

Hope you enjoy your time today on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning just visiting from Alpha stamps and am drooling over the beautiful candy you have set out to tempt me with. I am going to go pour a cup and sit a spell and enjoy all the eye candy as well. Pleasure to meet you.

I am so happy you found my blog today...hopping around with the Alpha Stamp posse. You liked the rosette on my journal page: a skinny piece of fabric was basted (on my new machine!), gathered, glue-gunned into a circle, then a Tim Holtz ticket glued on top. I make rosettes frequently, usually from paper. I am so impressed with you Marie Mail Group ladies. Talk about TALENT!

Hi, Caroline. I was glad when I saw you found your bench block. I've thinking of buying one but first I need to find my set of metal alpha dies (my workspace is a mess). I always love it when I participate in a swap at AS and get something of yours. The piece you made for the blog hop is lovely.

Just dropping by to say Hi! If you ever get tired of that teacup, let me know, will you? It's really special! Now I need to go work on my Easter Bunny ATCs for the AlphaStamps swap.
