Thrilled

I am thrilled to announce that I will be a part of the very first Pink Persimmon Creative Team!


To celebrate this fun occasion, Pink Persimmon is having a drawing on each of our blogs. More about that in a little bit...



First, I wanted to tell you a little bit about this exciting news. I discovered Pink Persimmon last October while late night blog hopping. I am sorry to say that I don't know whose blog it was that featured the stamps, but I do know that it was the large banner set and alphas that caught my eye and as quick as can be I hopped over to the Pink Persimmon web site and ordered them right up. The first project I made were the invitations above to my daughters' birthday party. I love those banner stamps and if you have been reading this blog for awhile then you know I use them a bunch, maybe more than any other set that I have.



This past summer, Pink Persimmon celebrated their first birthday and had a contest a week all month long. Each submission would be added to the weekly drawing. I worked so hard on my submissions! The card above was entered into the pink and orange contest. Well, it was not my lucky month, my name was never drawn....but don't get too sad for me yet, the next month there was a drawing, you had to leave a comment and I did win! I made the thank you below for the owners Darcy and Judi (it is a virtual thank you, I haven't actually mailed it)!
Click HERE to see a layout that I made with the banner stamps.


I inquired about a design team and was informed that indeed a creative team call was being planned!

I was so excited when I got the newsletter announcing the call for team members (maybe I was the only one that got the newsletter?) I was less excited when I saw the call on Split Coast Stampers and the post had over 500 views! I got a little intimidated! But I adore these stamps and decided I must give it a go. I am honored to be on the team and very thankful.

Ready to win some Pink Persimmon stamps? You already know what my favorite set is, for a chance to win a set of stamps, please leave a comment telling me what your favorite Pink Persimmon stamp set is. I will throw all the names into a hat and pick a winner Saturday, September 19th at 6 am PST.


Would you like two chances to win? Scroll down my blog, and add your name to "Follow" As a reader of this blog you will stay informed about all things PINK PERSIMMON! Leave me a comment letting me know that you did this!

Wait, how about having 3 chances to win! Mention this giveaway on your blog and link it back to this post! That's it and I will put your name in 3 times. Just don't forget to tell me that you did this! Thank you!

That's not all! Each member of the Creative Team for Pink Persimmon is having a drawing on their blog! Head over to check out these talented ladies and let them know what your fave set is for a chance to win a set of PINK PERSIMMON STAMPS.

Want to see all the sets that Pink Persimmon makes? Well, click HERE.
Winner will be announced here Sunday morning! Please check back to see if you have won.

Samantha,
Congrats on being on their design team. That has got to be so exciting. Wish I was good enough to even qualify for any companies design team. But, for the answer to your question about favorite set from Pink Persimmon stamps I would have to say that Key to My Heart is my most favorite, although I love quite a few. I am just discovering these, thanks to you. I am also following you. I can't wait to see what is next.
