Poll Winner!

We have closed our fourth crafting poll and chosen a random winner. Congratulations to Julia D! Please contact me to receive your free "Bye Bye Bunny" digi! This image is now available in the shop!

Our question for this poll was: What do you do with all your finished cards?

This was such an interesting poll because I, for one, have always been curious about what happens to all those beautiful finished cards!

30% Use your cards and sell the rest of them
30% Have boxes of unused cards laying around!
28% Use some and give the rest to friends and family
24% Donate the cards you do not use to organizations and charities
15% Make up gift packs of unused cards to give as special gifts
8% Make only enough cards for your own personal use

Thank you for participating and helping us learn a little more about how we work in the hand made card crafting world!

Ahh - Sunshine and Relaxation!

Isn't this what we all need right about now?!
Great coloring on "Mr. Brown on Vacation" by DT member, Linda Payne. I just love how he is already a little sunburned (obviously NOT sunscreen in that little floatie!) Check the details on her blog - you can see the water splashing, and those little stamped fishies are such fun!

Dancing in the Moonlight

This is DT leader Anne Ray's card for our "Pearls and Lace" challenge this week. You can see it on the challenge blog, ofcourse, but I thought I would feature it here because I'm so tickled by the moonlight effect and all the gorgeous touches Anne has included. Check her blog for the details. The image is "Spring Dress Emma".

The FOURTH Phindy's Place Crafting Poll!

Welcome to another Phindy's Place crafting poll! This time we are asking the question, "What do you do with ALL your finished cards?" This time you can choose multiple answers (an oversight in the past - I didn't realize that was an option - oops!)
Enter the poll to the right (PCP group click here) and leave your link for a chance to win this CUTE new stamp! (Not available in the shop until after the poll).
BTW - I am adding a color watermark for better protection of my images, the image you receive will NOT have any color - it will be black line on a white background.

Let's find out a little more about the way we work!

Give me your opinion!

As you can tell, I have been experimenting with new watermark ideas. The best protection for images is if they are colored - but with my other illustration work, I literally do not have the time to color all my digi stamp images. Besides, I feel my coloring of the image would get in the way of your own vision for the image.
Instead, I thought perhaps a nice "tie dye" colored background might suffice for color added. Give me your opinion on this - too hard to see the image? Colors get in the way of seeing your own vision? Let me know!

Cupid Cutie

A chubby little Cupid - looking for victims no doubt! Shop
I am experimenting with a heavier, darker watermark. I would appreciate your feedback on whether this interferes with seeing the image too much.
