Hi Dawn, I just love visiting your blog every morning. Your cards are always a joy to look at. I'm going to use my 50% coupon on one of those punches! I made some Christmas cards yesterday using my Coluzzle (love the Coluzzle). I think they came out pretty good. There were 3 layers so I had to line it up each time. Ok, getting dressed, going after that punch.
Thanks Dawn, keep up the good work. Stampingly, Rita

Hi Dawn,

I too chek out your blog first thing in the morning. You are sooo talented. I just love the card today. I have been considering the scallop punches and now I just might have to take the plunge as well as getting this set!!! I am addicted to my Designer Label Tag Punch Box. I have been using that punch on everything.....woo hoo!! I will also be stamping with a bunch of friends on Saturday and I cannot wait, maybe I will let them use my new scallop punch that you "enabled" me to get.

Thanks for the great blog Dawn, I love it!!!

Hi Dawn,

I love reading your blog everyday!! I love your ideas! My stamping accomplishment for the week was helping my sister design some cards using the giraffe from Wild About You. We stamped him in close to cocoa and punched out some of his spots. Then we mounted him on bordering blue. He looks so cute. She is going to use these cards to send pictures of her 9-month old son to friends.

Thanks for your inspiration.

I just love reading your blog each day and seeing your amazing creations. I, too, have RA, but mine is currently in remission, so I marvel doubly at what all you get done. As for stamping things done this week, I'm a brand new SU demo...does that count? And, I handed out my first catalog to a potential customer this week! :)
Have a great day Dawn! I wish I had a good Joanne's near me, but mine doesn't stock very many paper crafting goodies...

Hi Dawn,
What I love the most about your blog is YOUR NAME. It is the same as mine. I also love your creativity and talent. I am so glad that I discovered this sight. You do such a great job. Keep up the wonderful work.
Dawn

Hi Dawn! I only recently discovered your blog...it totally rocks! Thank you for being so generous with your creations. I especially enjoyed your recent tutorial for those fabulous shadow box cards that you've been making. I'm hoping to try one this weekend! Your blog is one that I try to check daily. Your blog (as well as a few others) are making me want to try blogging myself (baby steps). Thank you!

This is FUN, Dawn! I do a similiar giveaway on my blog from time to time (it's also connected to my comments - when I reach a certain number I do a RAK to the commenter. No one knows who it will be but me, so that's what makes it fun!)
I went to a stamp class last night a made three different cards, which I will be posting to my blog over the next few days. I have decided that I'm on a quest to add to my collection of SU background stamps -there's so many that I want right now! Love them!
BTW, I actually found your blog through SCS and will be adding it to my FAVS. And your Wild About You cards are simply adorable. Don't have that set yet, but it's on my list! Have a great day!

Well, now...don't I wish that I'm in YOUR downline! Excellent stuff on your blog as usual Dawn! Thanks so much for sharing! ~Lorie

Dawn, I just love checking your BLOG everyday to see what new and exciting card you are going to come up with next! I was showing off our Frankenstein card we made at the last SC10 meeting and a friend of mine wants me to make 4 of them for him to send out.

Oh my Goodness, Dawn! I love your lion and your punch... you have just sold me on both of those...my what a good sales lady you are!!! I'll have to see if we can get that punch here in Canada yet.

Dawn-
What a beautiful Card. I am adding this set to my favorites and going to be ordering it! I am so going online and looking into this punch it is so cool. Well I have been working on a way cool coupon organizer for myself the past day or so , it is not ready for presentation just yet but have every intention to share once I am done! Been a tough week trying to get the baby off the bottle ... Yights! But this Sunday is my 1st annual crop at the Caraway Hacienda so I ahev been working on my education era of the crop. You know me I must educate them on the do's and don'ts . I love to read your blog it is truly inspiring! have a blessed day!

I LOVE THAT CARD!

I am so excited that my son is here for hte week I forgot to post that to the last email! lol she took the card with her and i dont have a photo sorry!

Love your new punch!!!

Let's see stamping in the past week...

I GOT MY NEW DEMO KIT~!!!!!

now it's official...I'm a demo. I can't wait to get my open house going and book my first workshop!! My rubber is cut and I have my projects ready to go for the open house...now I just need to get my advertising done and I'll be set!!

Thanks for sharing all your great ideas...this was my first visit...but now I have you bookmarked!!

I had just bookmarked your site this week after somehow finding it! I just got my new booglie eyes set and LOVE your shadow card.

I am hosting a couple of Holiday cardfront swaps so have been working on them this week. I also have met with 3 hostesses this week who all want workshops at the end of October.

I have only been stamping a year and my upline is not very active with me so I have found other outlets and you are now one of them!

Hi Dawn!

Just discovered your site this past weekend and saved it to my favorites....Love your little lion card with that scallop punch....I need to find it.

So to toot my own horn, This past Friday I purchased some Prismacolor pencils, gamsol and stumps and have been having a ball learning to work with these. I made some really cute fall pumpkin cards Also got my new white signo pen from SU and have been doing some really cool faux stitching!!!

Glad I found your site!!!

Dawn, thanks for posting so religiously everyday! I haven't been visiting for long, but it's a MUST every morning, now! :) Hmmm....as for what I've been doing this week......well, I've been doing LOTS of stamping and have been working on my new altered book for documenting the journey of my dreadlocks. :) Yah, I know that sounds weird, but it's been an awesome journey for me and I'm lovin' every minute of it. :)

-Stampin' Mama

You blog is one I check daily - LOVE all your work!!!
GREAT JOB!

Love all those cards. You do such a great job. I love the lion card today. I don't have the 3" scolloped circle punch. I guess I'll have to buy or maybe put it on my birthday wish list. DH has asked for it, the wish list that is.
Sharon

HELLO DAWN. LOVE GOING ON YOUR BLOG EVERY DAY.I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT YOU DO EVERY DAY.YOU MAKE THE BEST CARDS.I LOVE GOING ON YOUR FAVORITE SITES. TO GET OTHER IDEAS.HAVE TO HURRY TO JOEANNS TO GET THE POUNCH BEFORE SALLY AND RONNIE GET THERE.THAKS TOO SALYY SHE GOT ME HOOKED ON STAMPING. AND DAWN'S MY FAVRITE DEMONSTRATOR....PHILLY

Dawn, you're such a sweetheart! It brings a smile each day to come and check your blog. You have such talent with your cards, and you're a great storyteller. Hmmm, tooting time...I wrote my 2nd tutorial over at my blog, so that was exciting and challenging. I made my first waterfall card all on my own yesterday, I also made my first stepper box. It's been a good stampin' week so far, and it's not even Wednesday!

It's always my intention to check your blog first thing in the morning when I get into the office, but that doesn't always happen. Sometimes I have to wait until lunch time and the suspense just kills me to wait to see what you've posted for the day.
My sister is turning 30 this Saturday, Sept 30th, and my goal was to send her a different card everyday this week, but between homework supervising with both the kids, teaching cathecism, daughter joining brownies, new puppy, working full time, I just haven't been able to meet that goal. Although, I did manage to make her a card last night using my new horizontal slot punch, pre-cut frogs w/googly eyes, pre-cut flowers, dtp techinque on really rust cs (matches our hair color). Now I'm just not sure if I should send it now or wait for her actual birthday cause I don't know if I'll have time to squeeze in making anymore cards this week before her special 30th day.

P.S. I was also inspired driving home the other day a different route by a white picket corner fence and flowers. The possible ideas are endless, just have to put my vision to stampin' cs!

I FORGOT TO SAY I USED MY NEW CUTTER AND I LOVE IT

I love love love your blog!! I've been stalking those scallop punches and have yet to find them in my po-dunk little town. I absolutely must have some especially since you posted this most adorable card....I'm planning on getting Wild About You as my next free Consistency Counts set!! Tell us, which scallop punch must we have first? Then listed the rest we must have--kind of like a command, k? That way when my dh questions me, I can tell him I was just following directions! You're awesome!! Keep those great ideas rolling! :) Jane

Reading Dawn's Blog is like Lake Wobegon--it is that down home fuzzy feeling where you know everyone. It is a real upper. Even when Dawn doesn't feel well or has car trouble, there is always something positive. I love Dawn's stamping most of all. Such an inspiration. I am jealous of her stamp room though!! She does have one awesome hubby for all his talents too. Hey Jesse, can we have a sleepover in your cooooool new room? I have been working on my bottle swap for the Angels group this week and like what I did for that. If I told you now then I would have to do something drastic. I will share later. I am taking a class at my local stamp store tomorrow night using the die cut machine called the Wizard--made by Spellbinders. It is fun. Maybe a SU future product?!?!? I too have always loved those scallop punches but never got them because they are not SU. I am probably going to have to say the heck with that and jump on the bandwagon. We may have to start a scallop punch yahoo group!

Dawn, I just recently found your blog but, I LOVE it!!!!! I loved all your wonderful ideas and creations from Splitcoaststampers. I have been on the fence about this set but I think your BEAUTIFUL lion card has finally pushed me over. Keep the Wonderful work! :) Johna

I also taught the double slider class to the Angels group Sat. and Sun. evening. It is a fun card to do.
Sandy

Dawn, the cards are adorable!! My new stamping adventure for the week came when I *finally* bought a copy of Tim Holtz's Altered Journey DVD and watched it over the weekend. (Some parts I've already watched multiple times!) I've started playing with the alcohol inks and distressing techniques he demonstrated in the DVD and I absolutely LOVE the results! I'm also amused that his stamps are even messier than mine! Hee! Love your blog -- it's the first one I check everyday! Thanks for sharing all your fabulous projects!

Dawn,

I could not live without your blog! You keep me so inspired! I can't wait to get up each morning to see what beautiful creations you have made. The wild about you set has been on my wish list for sometime. I have this scalloped punch. Now I just need sometime to play with it. Ok, now time to toot..... I held my last class for the Light Heart champaign last night and am happy to report that I sold 30 Light Heart stamp sets!. That means SU! dontaed $60 and I personally donated $60. I'm honored that I could take part in the fight against heart disease.

Dawn, you are such an inspiration. Makes me want to take the day off from work and just stamp away. I totally LOVE all your ideas. I had stamped a thinking of you card for a very special friend this week. He totally loved it. That's my toot for today. I will definitely have to visit your blog every morning to get my dose of Dawn's creations.

Hi Dawn,

I just found your website last week and I LOVE your projects!! The 3d card you make is just the BOMB!!

Thanks so much for your generousity in sharing :)

Dawn,
I love your samples...you always do such great work :) As for my toot...well, I attended a Remarkable Stampers downline meeting the other day & am now all fired up to try to increase my sales by holding more events.

Hi Dawn, I came across your blog from a comment you left on Taylored Expressions. Wow I love all your creations they are absolutely amazing, you will be added to the favorites and I will be back at least daily!! As for stamping myself, I am working on altered address books for gifts using the Joseph's coat technique to make new covers. Last weekend I went to a technique's workshop where we learned 12 new stamping techniques, it was awesome, now I have to get all the supplies to do them all. I fell in love with "In the Wild" as soon as the catalogue came out and purchases it right away, but by far the best card I have seen is the awesome lion card with the scalop punch, I'm gonna have to get me one of those real soon !! TFS, Erica

Dawn,
I come here because I LOVE your work and you are fun! I check first thing in the morning and right before bed (we're 6 time zones away). My toot...hmmm...I had a birthday calendar class Saturday, 19 people came and they want me to schedule two classes a month.

Dawn,

The cards are cute. I posted something on your blog this morning but it does not show up now so I am doing it again. I started my Baby First scrapbook for the girl in my office last night. I got 6 pages done 14 more to go. I want to finish it by tomorrow so I can start on my swaps for the Christmas swap and for regional. I also am having a jewerly party and I am going to make the invites for it. I am going to make up a quick card for anyone who wants to stay after the jewelry demo and stamp. Hopefully it will lead to a workshop.
That is my toot for today. Have a great evening

Howdy Stampin Queen,
I really love your Blog. You are so creative and gooooooooood! The lay out of you Blog is great. The Lion card is sooooo cute. The colors that you use is a great combo,and the 3D scallop head is really cute. Your "Stampin Creations", is a knock out Art Gallery. And "Dawn's Stamp Gatherings", I get caught up on the SU meeting. I can see & feel all the excitment I missed out on...Tootie - toot -toot..

Hi Dawny! I love coming to your site and checking out all your awesome ideas. Your an Inspiration for all of us. Love your Lion card that is so cute. I did 3 Halloween cards today I will share with our group today. My sister came to stamp with me today and we had a blast.
P.S.
Going to try that Shadow Box card to, thanks for the great toot on that!
Love Ya

Dawn, that lion is so cute I cannot STAND it. I also covet the Scallop punch. Haven't caved yet, but have purchased the Karen Foster mini snap stamps that the world is now using on SCS. Let's see, my Toot! Last night was the first meeting of my newest stamp club and I taught them the Big Buckle Card with the word window punch and they LOVED it, and with only 6 stampers it's a well over $200 workshop (haven't totalled it all yet!)

I just found your blog today--I love it! I love the Wild About You cards--so fun. My exciting thing is I made a big waterfall card last night that I just love and can't wait to send someone for Christmas!

Dawn, I definitely like the scalloped card better but both are cute. Yesterday Kelsey called to thank me for her card that I sent her. She had to know the details of how it was made. I've come along way since the beginning. I actually embossed her card than daubed (?) over it. It was soo cute. I also did my cards for the xmas swap. Can't wait to see everyones ideas. Looking forward to Fridays class. Laura

Hi Dawn,
I love Wild About You and my class that meets this week will be using that set for one of their cards. It's a set that just makes me smile! ('course stamping itself makes me smile!).

I check your blog every day...you're so faithful to blogging!

Lois Hemingway

I love this adorable card!

My toot is that I went to an upline meeting this weekend. We had soem much fun with make and takes and tried some new to me techniques!

Hi, I love your little lions. You are always so clever... my toot? I am now the official card maker for work. They decided to have me make the cards and not have to pay social dues... this will save all of us money... Yippee! I have done 4 baby cards and 2 wedding cards so far.
Hugs,
Susan
