So, what did you get????

I am curious about those who were able to attend any A*MUSE A*PALOOZA event. Did you have fun? More importantly, what did you buy? What is your favorite of the new release? I am just curious. I love the new little shops and homes, as well as the birch trees, baby penguin and the turkey wagon. I really like more than that, but I need to keep a short list, right? One of my favorite things about A Muse is the clever sayings that can go with so many images. However, here is a card that uses a *new* sentiment, which is probably going to be contained to very few images.



Now, do you want to guess how long this took me to make? I'll give you a hint...I could have tied three kids' shoes in about the same amount of time! No lie! The red stickles took longer to dry than the whole "putting the card together" process. In the immortal words of Hannibal from The A-Team "I love it when a plan comes together!" *Did you notice, I even made 12 candy canes for the twelve days of Christmas?*

Ok, please share with me what your faves are, if you can spare a moment. And for those of you waiting to see ALL the new images and sentiments, I think the A Muse website will be updated next week. I'll keep you posted!

LOVE this card! Keep 'em coming!

I only got a couple of stamps but will be heading back next month for the holiday drinks, we're havin' a party sentiment, the tree branch and probably a few more!

I was to attend Palooza with a couple of friends & the stamps I bought were the sporting goods store, the book store, the stamp shop, the tree branch, the pumpkin patch, the jack-o-lantern tree & the tall skinny Christmas tree. And I love all the new tin plate cards so I had to have one in each new color!

You are at the top of my blog favorites to check each day to see what wonderful card you have created! Thanks for all the inspiration!

Oh my gosh! What a cute Santa. I bought so many stamps at my local stamp store (Paperdoll in Portland, OR) that I think I won her "Biggest Amuse Fan" contest. At last count, I had spent over $150 on A Muse stamps! I especially love the Halloween tree with pumpkins dangling from the branches.

Hi Elena! Another cute creation! I received my ATC swaps today. Thank you soooo much! Well, you already know I didn't get to go to any participating stores, but I'm counting down the days to go check out the Amuse web site. I already know I want the stamp store. I love it! I can see it now...I already have a looooong wish list, so I know it's just gonna grooooow even longer once I see all the new stuff. I can't wait! ~PennyH

I went for all of the new storefront stamps, the pumpkin patch,the tall skinny Christmas tree, the Irish proverb, a holiday house, abeach chair, and the happy holidays sentiment. All of the new cards went immediately in the basket as well.....too darn pretty!!! Thanks for adding the marker colors to your great card descriptions...it helps as I'm building my collection of markers to see which ones you tend to use more than others.

We don't have any stores in Ontario, Canada, who participate in the Palooza ((pout)). But as soon as the AMuse website is updated, I shall be there buying the stores, esp. the stamping store & book store :) And by reading the comments left by other stampers, I can see the store fronts look VERY popular.
Please keep us posted on the date of release, via their website, or if there is any other website with them toooooo :) They are a "Must Have" for my rubber collection.
P.S. Love your Santa card too~ btw, how many days is it 'til Xmas??? uggggg GROAN !

I love the A Team reference! It cracks me up... I would totally says something just like that! Anyway I got every single one of the new releases except for the penguin because they were out! My favorite is the soccer girl and school bus... (my 3 year played soccer this year and it was really sweet!)

I love the irish sentiment about the house never being too full. I also got the turkey on the car. I got more but those are my favorites. I can't wait to see more!

PS I hope you don't mind that I am adding a link to your blog on mine!

I attended an event and bought 22 new A*Muse stamps! Very exciting. My absolute favorites are the Book Store and the stack of books with the coffee mug on top!!

I voted you for Rockin' Girl Blogger!!

Wow! This is adorable. I can't wait to get some more stamps, oh after I recover from the first round financially. ;)

Thanks for adding me to your blog roll, that's fantastic.
