Only 3 days left...

until Orson is no longer available, but don't fret I have a wonderful image for you on Monday!

PLEASE, Please, please.... if you snag one of my free images leave me a quick post and tell me so. I would really like to know about how many people are snaggin them to see if it is worth my while to continue to do this. I have had approximately 950 hits to my blog since I posted Orson, but only 22 people have been so kind and left me a message. Now, I may be blond, but I am not dumb! I am sure more then 22 people snagged that cute little monkey! So, please leave me some luvins, after all your image was FREE and all I am asking for in return is a small bit of your time to leave a message.

So... I can't wait for you to see what I have in store for you next Magicial Monday! So, in the meantime, enjoy the simple pleasures of the day!

Small Blog Candy Give-a-way goes to....

"Julies Crafty Creations"

Well, I regretfully had to pick another name for this give-a-way since I did not hear from the "smalleyfamily prior to Saturday. So, Avery drew a new name out of the bowl. To claim your winnings, please e-mail me your address at the email on my profile. Now, hopefully she will claim this, but if I don't hear from her by the end of this Saturday, August 8th, I will once again draw another name out of the bowl! Who would have thought giving away blog candy could be so hard? OK... Congratulations and I hope you claim it!!


That's right, there's a celebration going on right here, right now!

Are you feeling the magic in the air yet? Well, I certainly am! I am super excited to be releasing my very first original free limited image today! How exciting for me and how exciting for you; because it is free! I thought since there is a celebration going on there should be cake as well!! So, Orson is carrying this huge cake in celebration of today's milestone to share with you!! It truly is a very "magical moment" in time for me and I hope all of you will jump on the party wagon with me, the Designer Team and Guest Designers and participate in the celebration by not only snaggin my free image, but participating in the challenge as well.

Be patient with me today and know this is an extra long post today, because this is my first release and I want to make sure I cover everything. So read through it slowly there is a lot of information here, but come back next week and I promise I will not be quite so wordy!

All the challenges on this blog will be focused around my images so you will need the image of week to go with the challenge of the week. No worries there since they are free for a limited time! So snag, create and then post your link down there where Mr. Linky is hanging out to take your links directly to your created cards to share. Make sure you link by the end of Sunday evening, because Monday we will start all over again! If you don't have a place to link to display your cards, then email them to me to the e-mail address in my profile and I will be glad to post them here on my blog to share.

("Orson with cake" is no longer available for free...I am in a process of getting a website up and going to make available to you not only these images, but many more originals by me in digi form and in the near future photopolymer as well... it's all in "the works"! In just hours a new free image will be released)

The name of this stamp is "Orson with Cake". To get a good image of Orson click on the above image, that will take you to a much larger image. Once you are to the larger image, right click and "save as" to your designated file. Also make sure you read, copy and save this as well and are clear about this inforamtion too. If it were me, I would make a new file with "TMITA stamp images" enclose my copy right and then start collecting your free weekly images by placing them in the file! Now with all the legalidies out of the way...

So what is the Challenge this week?
Our Magical Monday challenge is "Celebration", because it's a celebration today! Use Orson anyway you want (free style) as long as your card represents a celebration of some kind.

Below are all the Designer Team's and Guest Designer's cards for your inspiration for the challenge! Aren't they all just lovely and unique! Just like yours is going to be. Once you have created your card, make sure you come back and link it with Mr. Linky, because come Magaical Monday August 10th, I will have a random drawing for all who participate. They will have a chance to win the summer addition of "Just Cards Magizine" and something from my stash. Not sure about you, but I personally love to flip through magizines, cruise blogs and people's galleries for inspiration. So, I thought I would inspire you with a magizine that has 300+ cards in one place! This is a $10.00 value on the stands.

And now for the oh so talented...

Well, I thought I would play along the first month and then you can find my creations on my other blog Having An Art-A-Tack

Well, there you go! I hope you are as excited about Orson as I am!

Also, if you snag an image, if could please leave me a message on this post telling me so, I would love to know about how many images are being snagged. You would help me out a great deal by doing that. You don't necessarily have to participate in the challenge, but of course we would love to have you. Either way leave me a message. I look forward to seeing all your creations!!

OH, and if you don't know what you are doing with a digital image or how to save it or bring it up once saved; you can find that information here.

Just another 24 hours

until the first image release!! Are you excited? Well, I know I am super excited and I hope you are too!! Needless to say things are a mess around here though, I have tons of things being worked out in pencil & paper and lots of ideas that still need to be placed on paper. Sometimes my creative energies are so much quicker then I can get on paper. So, in the mean time, if you have something you would maybe like to see as a future stamp, let me know, I love ideas and input!

Also, the "smalleyfamily" did not claim their blog candy from the last drawing. So, with regret, I will be drawing another name from the bowl and attempting to give it away once again on Monday Morning, August 3rd. So, if you are a follower on either face book or blogger you now have another chance for that.

Well, this will be my last post until tomorrow on "Magical Monday", so in the mean time have a great and blessed day!
