Weekend Shout Outs

Hey there out there in virtual world!  Hope you all have been having fabulous weekends!

Nothing new to show you today but I have a few shout outs. 

First of all, I am so honored and surprised to have won the Artist of the Month blog giveaway on Susan Z's gorgeous blog Imagine. Create. Express.!!!  

Look at this adorable haul I won!!!
I've come to know Susan through SPCC and she has been the super Guest SP Diva this month.

And did you know you, too, can be the next lucky winner of this wonderful blog giveaway?  How, you ask?  Head on over to Susan's blog and make a comment.  You will go into a draw to win a monthly prize which will be drawn at the end of every month. Also if the winner has a craft related blog or website they will be featured as as the "Artist of the Month"!  Cool, eh?

And truly, I'm not sending you to just any old blog to win some candy.  Check out Susan's art.  She really is a great scrap and card artist as well as a genuinely sweet and wonderful person!

PLUS, Susan also has a special giveaway every other month just for becoming a public follower!  On the 29th of September, November, January, March, May and July the names of five new followers will be drawn to win a small prize.

AND, just when you thought there couldn't be any more goodness from this wonderful little lady, for every comment made on her blog, 20c will be donated to World Vision Australia!  I'd say Susan deserves a standing ovation!!!

Thanks Susan!!

Some other really cool news this weekend...Sam from SPCC has started up another challenge blog. 

Just Buggin' is a weekly Cricut challenge blog. Every Wednesday you will find a new challenge to help inspire you to use your Cricut machine.  At least one die cut from the Cricut must be used for each challenge entry.  You may enter the challenge as many times as you want. 

Yippee!  I feel like I've been neglecting my Cricut lately.  This is going to be so fun!!

They will be mixing up the types of challenges they are going to be posing -sometimes the challenge will be a word inspiration, sometimes an ABC inspiration, sometimes a color, sometimes a just never know what they will have in store for you!

The first challenge is the word "serene".  The word "serene" doesn't actually have to appear on your's just a starting point.

OK, well, that's all I have for you tonight. 

Be sure to check back here periodically this week.  There's the new SPCC color challenge and the Spunky Scrappers challenge on Monday, I'll have a new Tuesday Techniques challenge for you over on Memories Always-Forever for you on (you guessed it) Tuesday.  The Pink Ninjas "concerts" challenge is due on Wednesday.  Sketchy Thursdays' sketch challenge is due on Thursday.  Friday is the first Unity Stamp Co. Friends with Flair Friday, which is replacing the much beloved Hip Hop Hangover.  And, I'm sure, I'm forgetting plenty of other fun, fun, fun challenges for the week.

Happy Sunday evening!

You have mentioned some awesome challenges, I love to take part in them all but that four letter word being work is getting in the way.
