Well, I meant to post something here on my personal blog over the weekend but with the holiday and my anniversary... i never got around to it.
This is a double ended post today... so hang in there to see my Challenge card for the PMS Digi Makeover challenge.
As most of my blog readers know... Paper Makeup Stamps has been my baby for almost 3 years now. I started the company after my move from Los Angeles to the east coast. I started a family here and thought makeup artistry was my first business, paper crafting has always been my hobby. And thru the love of my hobby and finding a little bit more time at home now that I was a mommy... paper makeup stamps was born.
As my children have grown (not much mind you, they are 5 and 3) their needs have been more important. Its no longer just about spending some time at home with them. it's basketball practice and games. Choir and church events. Kindergarten and preschool productions.
And as their needs increase... so has my makeup artistry business. This past year has truly been a whirlwind for how much business I have picked up. Maybe word of mouth for being in the area? It's truly a blessing! But I've had to come to make some very hard decisions. With the increase of my first business, meant the decline of the time I have at home. Coupled with a 2nd business... something had to give. With this decision, I have decided to close out all rubber from Paper Makeup Stamps. I don't want to just let the company vanish as I truly love each and every one of the designs for paper makeup stamps and I have had the honor of working with fantastic illustrators. So I will continue on with digi sales of the stamps for as long as I can.
The rubber however, will be clearanced out. All stock that is on hand has been clearances to 45% off with the coupon code CLOSEOUT45. This is limited to stock on hand and no more rubber will be ordered. You can read more about the closeout on this post.
And now for my challenge card using some PMS digis!
I used Leif and colored him with topic markers.
I turned the sketch on it's side to accodmate the fact that leif is a bit wider than long. It's not quite cold here yet and the trees are beautiful shades of orange. Even though christmas spirit is in the air... i couldn't resist making at least 1 more fall card before the winter season is fully here!
Be sure to check out the PMS company blog to see the other designers fantastic takes on this sketch challenge!
