****Edit - Blog Candy is now closed*****

Do you want to win some NEW STAMPS?

We have new stamps to show you today and we need some help spreading the word around town about these new cutie pies. So we're going to make a deal
with you.
We are going to give away not one, not two, not three, but FOUR. Yes, FOUR!!!
BRAND NEW SETS of stamps to one lucky randomly drawn winner for helping
get the word out about our new stamps. And since we are leaving for a big road trip on Wednesday for stamp shows (Novi, MI and Cincinnati, OH.. see the website for details). We are drawing the winner this TUESDAY night so you only have today and tomorrow to enter!

So this is what you need to do in order to win FOUR brand new hot off the presses stamp sets (with a street value of about $65 big ones...)
First, and this is REALLY IMPORTANT... you need to SPREAD THE WORD about our candy. How can you do that?

-Post a comment on your blog
-Post a message on a message board
-Send an email to your STAMP or SCRAPBOOK related friends, family or groups.

Did you know we really do check that you have spread the word?

So you're going to need to prove it. How can you do that?

-When you post your candy comment on this thread be sure to put a link to the direct post on your blog. Dont have a blog? What are you waiting for? It's all the rage and free to set up. (You can get one right here: www.blogspot.com ) All the cool kids are doing it.

Dont want a blog?
-How about you copy us the email you sent to your friends: strvingartistmp@aol.com

-Email the link to the message board you posted on: strvingartistmp@aol.com

-or have your friends tell us that you sent them our way when they post their own comment.

We really do check.
Did you know that in the past we have had to redraw our winner several times before we could find someone who really did spread the word. (Hey, you're about to win a HUGE brand new COLLECTION of FREE rubber! It's worth the extra effort!)

-No purchase necessary.
-spread the word and tell us how you did it by posting a comment on this thread from now until July 27th, 2009 (midnight PST)
-We will announce the winner on or before July 28th, 2009 (midnight PST)
-One entry per person.
-Please provide in your comment some way of contacting you if you are the winner.

So without further interruption... may we present...

New Copic Sketch Pastels Set

If there is one thing that makes me giggle with happiness it is a rainbow of beautiful factory fresh new markers!

Today we got in a limited quantity of the brand new copic sketch super light pastels (copic set # EX-4) . These colors are only being released in the sketch pen style and we only have a few sets left in stock.

There are twelve lovely super pale shades in the set:

You can find them here:

I will try and get a nice shot of the pens in action as soon as I can. Maybe I will use some of our soon to be released brand new images with them! Stay tuned!
