New Day! New Month! New Blog! New Stamps!

I cannot believe that it is August! We have been steadily working towards today here at The Artistic Stamper. We have a New Blog dedicated to our Creative Team. We have new stamps yippee!
We have lots of opportunities to win blog candy, and we have a new blog challenge too! All this in the space of a day!!
Alongside all this inky goodness, Hels has a chance for you to win even more blog candy over at The Sunday Stamper! which is sponsored by The Artistic Stamper.  I am so excited, and I have even forgone my sleep to stay awake, and load all the new inkiness on the website for you!!
I did even manage to make ART today just for the new blog Challenge, Something Old, Something New, which I am also entering in Sunday Stampers.. oooh do you think Hels will let me win??rofl!!
I made this piece using and old wooden jigsaw piece as the base, and added the new flowers in grungepaper, and one of the new birds peeping behind. If I let you into a secret please don't tell anyone, but I dropped alcohol ink all over the outer flower when I was trying to recolour the jewelled brad.. oops! disaster!  But I just dropped alcohol ink on all the other petals, and it seemed to make it stand out better!

I am off now to see what is happening on The Creative Team Blog and have a glass of Champagne to celebrate...
Just as an aside I haven't chosen the winner of the blog candy yet, as it is just after midnight, and I will do that later on today... watch this space for the winners.. did I say winners???? *sneaky grin*
Happy Creating!
