Good Luck Winning!

Woo Hoo, it's Friday!  I have been looking forward to this weekend as I am heading to the coast with some of my girlfriends for a fun stamping weekend by the sea.  Okay, we will probably do a little shopping, eating and laughing too!  Never a dull moment with this group!

This week the my Tombow teammates and I are sharing projects with the "Luck of the Irish" theme in honor of St. Paddy's Day tomorrow.  You also have the opportunity to win some yummy May Arts ribbon.  The details are below.


I created this card using stamps from the Our Craft Lounge Shamrock Blessings set.  One of my favorite ways to use Tombow Dual Brush Pens is to color directly on my stamps.  For this card I used the following colors:  098 Avocado, 177 Dark Jade, 665 Purple and 676 Royal Purple.  I started by coloring the lighter color of marker onto the stamp and then just tapping on a bit of the darker colors.  Give the stamp a little "huff" to re-moisten the ink and then stamp onto some cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment right over the top of the image.  

Would you like to WIN some amazing May Arts ribbon?

  We are so excited that May Arts shared some wonderful ribbon with the Our Craft Lounge design team and we have some great projects from both of the companies on the OCL Blog today!

You'll want to check the OCL Blog each day for the rest of this week as there will be little peeks of the samples our team prepared. Now don’t forget to leave some love everywhere each and every day this week because there will be FIVE prize packages of blog candy this week! 

Now for some blog candy! May Arts sent us lots of YUMMY ribbon to share with all of you! WOOHOOO! So we’ll have 5 Prize Packages to give away this week. You have lots of ways to enter EVERY SINGLE DAY this week + one BONUS entry!
Daily leave a comment on each of the following:
1. the OCL blog,
2. each designer’s blog playing along that day (you will find a list of designers on the OCL blog), and
3. OCL's Facebook page.
BONUS ENTRY: If you “LIKE” OCL on Facebook, you’ll get a bonus entry (as long as you tell us you did it) ~ if you've already "liked" us, let us know that too!
