Welcoming a New Design Team Member!

Welcome to Friday everyone!  This week we're welcoming a new team member - read on for some thoughts from Kate!

"I am thrilled to announce that Judy Rozema will be going the core IHP DT beginning today!  With Loretta’s departure, I felt that we needed to add someone else to help keep the team balanced.  Judy and I go waaaaayyyyy back - way back to the beginning of my stamping career, over 10 years ago.  She was actually on my Stampin’ Up! downline and was one of my very first recruits but we wouldn’t meet until years later when I opened IHP and we had a chance to meet in person at CHA.

We share our birthday week, a love of music and of course, a love of stamping.  Please help me welcome her to the team by stopping over to her blog or her Facebook page and leaving her a comment. (Trust me…you want to stop by and leave her a comment!)"

Here’s a little bit of what Judy has to say about herself:

“My name is Judy Rozema.  I live in Central Nebraska, in Cornhusker country, and have been married for 30 years.  I have a daughter who is a sophomore in college, and a married son who is a pastor and lives in North Carolina.  Two dogs (labs) and a 17 year old water turtle round out our family.  During the school year, I am a part-time elementary music teacher.  When I'm not stamping, I enjoy watching movies, crocheting, and going on junk jaunts!  I also spend time in the community theater in my town, as an actress and director of musicals and plays.  You might know me on Splitcoaststampers as StampingQueenJAR.  I hope you will stop by my blog, Joy in a JAR, or my craft page on Facebook by for a visit!   I am thrilled and delighted to be a part of the i {heart} papers Design Team!”

Welcome to the team, Judy!

You've probably noticed our shipping note, that no orders will be shipped beginning tomorrow and continuing throughout the three-day Labor Day weekend. Normal shipping will resume on Tuesday, September 4 (and you can still place orders throughout the weekend).  Since we won't be here to ship anything, we thought we'd have a little bit of blog fun, and do a Blog Blinkie Giveaway!

To add this to your blog you need to add a "gadget" or HTML box and then paste this code:

<p><a target="_blank" href="">
<img border="0" src="" width="170" height="170"></a></p>

and then save it.  Please be sure to leave a comment here and let us know if you've added it.  What can you win if you add this to your blog?  How about a little bling?!

Four packs of Zva Creative bling will be given to one random commenter, who puts the blinkie on their blog (and yes....we check!)  This contest will run through Tuesday, September 4 at 6:00 PM EST.  And don't forget to comment here and let us know you've added it (and your blog address, so we can go see)! One winner will be announced Wednesday morning here on the blog.  (Winner is responsible for claiming their prize within 48 hours of announcement; if no one claims it, a new winner will be drawn!  You should follow the blog to make sure you don't miss it!)

Be sure to stop by Monday for some new releases from Gourmet Rubber Stamps!

And the shipping reminder: No orders will be shipping Labor Day weekend (Friday, August 31 - Monday, September 3).  Thanks in advance for your understanding!
