Hello, everyone! I'm sorry I don't have many stamping projects to share. I've been busy working on baby shower samples and am saving most of those to share for a later date so in the meantime I thought I'd introduce you to some other bloggers!

1. Kristina Werner: Kristina is a graphic designer who works for Stampin' Up!. She is extremely talented and has a fabulous blog. She recently started doing Make a Card Monday and it's one of my favorite blog features!
2. Beate Johns: Beate is the Creative Director for Splitcoaststampers and her blog is updated CONSTANTLY! If you are in need of a fix, defintely head over there. She has a new sketch challenge posted on Fridays and a new inspiration challenge on Tuesdays. You'll always find something beautiful and creative over on her blog.
3. Carolyn King: Carolyn is someone who caught my attention on the Splitcoast forums. I was 'at' a release party for My Favorite Things and while I was like the geeky girl who nobody talks to, 'Cammie' was the life of the party! I don't know why, but her comments about reading the Bible when people would 'enter' the party and ask what was happening just cracked me up! I started noticing some of her cards in the gallery and one of them linked to blog and I've been visiting ever since. Besides being a comedian in the forums, Carolyn is also a stamp designer for Gina K. Designs.
4. Gina Krupsky: Speaking of Gina K. Designs, here's another blog you'll have to peruse. Gina K. is one of the people I admire most in terms of how she runs her business and the relationship she builds with her online audience. Gina gives helpful tutorials, mind-blowing giveaways and a bunch of inspiration on her blog. I am embarrassed to admit that I don't actually own any Gina K. stamps, but someday I will!!
5. Cambria Turnbow: I found Cambria's blog through Beate's blog as she is one of the designers for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I love the stitching/sewing that Cambria does on so many of her cards--I figure if I keep looking at her blog, I'll be motivated to try and use my sewing machine. Now, Gina K. recently did a great little tutorial on the Jenome Sewing Mini so between that and Cambria's cute cards, I really should have been sewing by now!
6. JoLynn Plato: I know most of you are already visiting JoLynn's blog, but I had to give the shout out once more! JoLynn has been doing so many of the challenges which means you're sure to find something new to look at when taking a look at her blog.

7. Dawn McVey:  I almost forgot my newest find.  It's no secret that I have a bit of a girl crush on Kristina Werner.  Well, she recently had a post where she referred to Dawn as her 'card twin'. Now, you know how much I love Kristina's cards so I just had to check out Dawn's blog.  Let me tell you, it did not disappoint.  She is SO talented and it is amazing--she and Kristina really are card twins.  They have the same clean style that I appreciate and I love both of their designs so I've bookmarked Dawn's blog and will definitely head back to see what she's up to.  Oh, and an interesting tidbit about Dawn's blog--she e-mails you back when you comment!  How cool is that?  So, I'm thinking I need to set up my blog to e-mail me comments so I can e-mail the commenters back as well.  Oh, and another thing I may have to copy about Dawn...she started referring to her stamping space as her studio because she liked the sound of it.  Yes, I think 'studio' sounds much better than my 'scrapbooking' room or my 'stamping' room.  

So, I'm off to go work in my new studio--catch ya later! 

I hope you enjoy these other bloggers and I'll be back with more projects for you soon!
Don't forget to take a look at my stamps for sale! They're going fast!
