The Craft's Meow March Celebrations and a Contest!

EDIT: This contest is over and the winner has been announced HERE.

March is a big month for The Craft's Meow as we celebrate its 1st birthday! We have new designers, illustrator, challenges, and of course, stamps! I am excited to work with these talented ladies in the team!

We are kicking off the celebration with a special release called No Greater Love, a small set celebrating Christ's resurrection. I have been swamped with design deadlines and family commitments that I wasn't able to create for this release. However, I have a beautiful card by my talented friend Jessica Fick to show you here on my blog. I love how detailed she gets without making her card look crowded. It takes a special skill, I tell ya. :). Thanks, Jessica, for letting me share this. The TCM blog has a list of participants for this hop.
Here is the No Greater Love set that is available now at the TCM store:
I hope you will check out the monthly sketch challenge going on now. Here's the sketch and my card follows:
I shared this card a while ago, but here it is again for your inspiration.

Now, how about a little contest...I have BIG and exciting news to share next week. Leave a comment to guess what it is. I will pick a winner from the right guessers. If nobody guesses it right, I will pick a random winner from all the commenters. One guess per person, please. But if you share this on FB and/or your blog, you get to leave a second guess. The contest is open until I announce my exciting news sometime next week.

And don't forget to like my NinaB Designs FB page where there is also a contest going on with prizes galore for your and your friend! They all include Spellbinders dies, Layers of Color stamps, SRM Stickers, Want2Scrap bling and miscellaneous stickers. Just a reminder that you have to "like" the page, and not just leave a comment, in order to be eligible to win!
Enjoy your weekend, friends!

  2. Jessica's card is lovely and the stamp set is amazing. I look forward to our big news- let's see you've had stamps come out before as well as some dies- so big news might be something new- are you having a book of your inspiration come out?

  4. My guess is that your big news has to do with Layers of Color stamps, either the reopening of their store or how you are involved with another company and the LOC stamps.

  10. Nina, I just love this new set. . .and your work overall and the way you are using your talents to serve the Lord! My guess is your announcement is related to an announcement that Layers of Color Laura will also be part of and it pertains to a major stamp company taking you both on board. . .but just who is that company?? Blessings and hugs!
