Creative Me Linky Party and Giveaway with JessicaLynnOriginal Stamps!

The Southern Intitute

Welcome to the Creative Me linky party!  So, here’s what I want to know…

Did you brave the Black Friday crowds?
And what deals did you find?

Do tell, I’m dying to know!  I know you’re shopping isn’t done yet, so make sure you’re here tomorrow morning when the Healthy Living eBook Bundle goes on sale!  This is the Cyber Monday deal of the year, I kid you not!  Plus I’m giving away a $25 gift card to Target, JoAnn’s or Michael’s (winner’s choice)!  Just in time for your Christmas sewing and crafting!  Make sure you come by and enter to win!

BUT TODAY… Today’s Creative Me Linky Party is sponsored by JessicaLynnOriginal, a great stamp company that has been featured in Oprah magazine!

JessicaLynnOriginal is where you’ll find all kinds of adorable stamps, perhaps best known for the Brentwood line… you’ve probably seen this little guy around.

You’ll find Brentwood in all kinds of situations…here’s he’s getting the family Christmas Tree, but you’ll also find him cheering on his favorite football team, camping, and doing all sorts of other things too.

At JessicaLynnOriginal you’ll find clear stamps, red rubber stamps on a wooden block (with or without a handle), and self-inking stamps.  I prefer the red rubber stamps myself. :)  Jessica can also customize stamps for you.  She made this beautiful Christmas stamp for our family.  I can’t wait to use it on our cards this year!

Today Jessica is offering one lucky Southern Institute reader a $25 gift credit to her online shop!  This is just in time for holiday card making!  Just enter through the Rafflecopter widget before the link up.

This week’s featured blog is my Kiwi friend Simone Graham from Great Fun 4 Kids!  Simone just published her first book and it’s awesome!  Please go check it out and see her unique take on the Christmas story, An Unexpected Christmas… it really is so sweet.  I’m so proud of you, Simone!

      We have a Geocaching handle – WDWMould – add us! That is why I started making them. We would always have a dead pen when we went to sign the log. If you have not been out Geocaching.. then you need to!! It is amazing and a lot of fun! We have gotten to see places I would have never been!

      Happy Stamping!
