DT List

Ok...so that was extremely difficult!!
I am NOT joking or exaggerating when I say, you are all super talented!
I will be honest...our original list was 80...then I thought we had narrowed it down to 40, but after taking a second look at all the blogs...we were back up to a list of 57.  We have forced ourselves to get the list down to what you see now.  Oh and... I actually already have Term 2 which will begin in June picked out from this call!! Maybe even Tern 3...hee hee!!  So, if you don't see your name below...it doesn't mean you are out of the running. We will be watching your blogs and you just might be on our Term 2 or Term 3!! Woo hoo...thanks so such an amazing response!! 

Email me here: ourboyds5(at)aol(dot)com

Can't wait to hear from each of you.....Congratulations and THANK YOU for applying!!

Recently, a dear, near to my heart and VERY talented Friend, Maurie J. Manning (a.k.a MO) of Mo's Digital Pencil
was the victim of STAMP/ART Theft.  Now, when she tracked down the thief she also noticed that their were several other stamp companies that were also being hijacked.
This is really sad. I guess there are some people out there who have no respect for the amount of time and heart that an artist puts into their work (even if it is a digital image being used to color and create a card with). People who have no problem with stealing!!

Mo has created a site and begun a campaign to STAMP OUT STAMP THIEVES....ART THIEVES!!

Click on the banner below to read all about it and to see how YOU can help in protecting our ART.
The safer our digi stamps stay, the LONGER we can design for YOU!
Don't let other ruin it for EVERYONE!!

Hugs and Thanks for your time and support!!
