Another Contest!

Oh my! How did I miss this one?? Thanks Deb for sharing!

Prism Paper is hosting a World Cardmaking Contest! Here are the details:

"Prism is thrilled to announce a contest for World Card Making Day! We are hoping you can help us by creating cards that will "WOW" the world! Let your creativity run wild and show us cards for every occasion ( i.e. Birthday, Anniversary, Valentine's Day, etc.) made with Prism Papers.

Requirements: The cards can be any size you choose. You are allowed to use tools of your choice...such as punches, die cut machines, stamps, computer printing etc. You can use generic embellishments such as ribbon, mini brads, simple rub ons etc. But if embellishments are used, they should be used in very limited amounts only to accent the card stock.

We ask that each card uses Prism Cardstock only (no printed paper). Our goal is for each card to be 99% Prism Cardstock.

Card images must be emailed to by 11:59pm MST on Monday, June 4th, 2007 along with a product supply list. Product supply list must contain: your first and last name, phone number, and specific names of all cardstock colors used. For more info visit"

Only Five Days Left . . .

. . .to save 15% on your entire purchase!

Just enter coupon code "kickoff15" during the checkout process.

the fine print: Coupon code valid through June 5, 2007. Valid on-line only. One coupon per customer, please.

About those Galleries

I miss them, too. But the good news is that I think I have found an alternative . . .so the Galleries should be up and running soon . . .although, when I decided to add a shopping cart to the website, I thought, "That shouldn't take too long . . ."

And it took three months. . .

Stay tuned . . .I'll post it here when the Galleries go live and I'll probably send out an email, too.
