Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Hop and Release Day!! YAY!

Well hello peeps and welcome to the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Hop! It's NOT the 7th for all you PMS vets...it's the 14th...lol...but that still means it's time for another Paper Makeup Stamps blog hop of new releases! The release for this month had to be pushed back a bit for X reason...but it is SO worth the wait! Have you enjoyed the sneak peeks so far? I know I have! :D

If you have come here from Christi T.'s blog, you are on the right track. If you haven't come from her blog, then please start at the PMS blog and then continue the hop and pick up your letters along the way that will spell out a special phrase that will get you a discount on the new release! How fun is that? Keep on reading and you'll find my letter below! ;)

I have Cookie Monster to share with you today. Now tell me...who can't resist a cookie nabbing monster? He is MY kind of monster! LOL! I'm a cookie freak, especially snickerdoodles! ZOMG I'm drooling just thinking of them...HAHAHAHA! Today I made both a card AND a 3D item...a milk carton! What goes great with cookies? DUH...MILK! LOL! I saw this idea somewhere...to combine the whole cookie and milk concept...but I can NOT remember, for the life of me, where and it's killing me...but let me tell you...it left a great impression for me to wanna CASE it! I bought the milk carton & carry case tutorial for this project from Becky at Inking Idaho and I LOVE it! I bought it a while back and just managed to make something worthy from it! Inside the milk carton, I packaged up a baggie of cookie mix (sugar cookie) and then added some chocolate melts. When I make sugar cookies...right before they're done...I top each center with a chocolate melt. After I got done with this project...I baked some cookies...chocolate chip! :P I'm sorry if you're drooling...it's not MY fault! Blame Katie for having me to use Cookie Monster for the hop...LMBO! Also...after seeing what the other girls have made using Cookie Monster...now I see mine and they look like phlegm and potato...seriously! Tuesday while doing some blog rounds it hit me. I had one of those LMAO moments that even scared the hubster. Please feel free to laugh...I know I did...and LOUD! I even spewed my work space and keyboard with a large mouthful of coffee!

Ok...so I'll let you go on your way down the PMS hop! Today I have for you the letter

brought to you by...lol...sorry...I had a Sesame Street flashback with the whole cookie monster and a letter...lol. BTW...Cookie Monster has always been my fave next to Elmo...so much I used a cookie monster quote for the sentiment...computer generated...and now he's my favorite next to Caliope. Caliope still has my heart though. :D Now head on over to Lisa M.'s blog to see what she has in store for you! Whatever it is...I can bet it's AMAZING!

We hope to see you tonight at the release party...dress comfy...no casual wear needed! It starts at 8:00 pm CST in the PMS forum. Hope to see you there!

Feel like shopping for any of these stamps shown since Monday? Go HERE after 8PM CST and grab a few! Make sure to use your discount code formed by the letters you've collected! ;)

Hi Gabby! Not only do you make great cards, but you really make me laugh!! And I need that, because I will tell you a little secret - my fave Sesame Street character is Oscar the Grouch and it's pretty fitting most of the time!! (my runners up are Cookie Monster and Snufalufacus when he used to be invisible - remember that!?) Anyway, thanks for the smiles!! :-)Traci

Shana said...
