These boys know exactly how to make mama happy - they love to color! I was so thrilled to sit there and chat and color up a storm. I worked on my design team assignments while they played. Damon was experimenting, and Tony was making this gorgeous work of art. Isn't his coloring great?
Tony chose one of the stamps from Red Eowyn's "Freaks" sheet of rubber. He likes this backpack guy. Didn't he do a great job coloring it? The sun is by Terry Medaris and the clouds are by justjohanna. The sentiment is by Red Eowyn. I love the colors he chose. The background paper was bought at Michael's. Tony ran the rust cardstock through the crimper and then used punches to cut out the stepping stones. He used pop dots to raise a few of the stepping stones, the big cloud and the backpack guy. He mounted the whole thing on a 5x7 canvas. After many failed attempts at finding a tool that would punch through the canvas, we settled on my little sticker thing on a stick. Don't ask. Oh,and the Cropadile wouldn't do it because the canvas was too thick. Tony ran some wire through the holes in the top, added a few beads and was done.
Tony presented his piece of art to Damon, who was thrilled to receive it. My present was having the boys sit with me in the craft room. I love you, Tony. Thank you for my Mother's Day present. xoxoxo

Ok, so I know what you're thinking: "What do I have to do to get this fantastic prize? I'll tell you. You have to answer a quiz and be the winner. This quiz will test your knowledge of the justjohanna stamp line. You should leave a response to this post with your answers. If you want your answers confidential, then leave a message on this post and then EMAIL ME your answers. Ok, so enough blabbering. You may not know the answers right off, so you can use the justjohanna forum, the justjohanna blog , or the online catalog as resources. You can also ask someone. Anyone. ANYone. OK, let's get on with it!!
- What year did justjohanna rubber stamps make its debut?
- How many stamps are currently in the catalog? The closest guesser gets this one.
- Before the current bestselling stamp in the catalog, flora hugabundus was the #1 bestseller. What is the #1 best selling stamp right now?
- How many people are on the justjohanna design team?
- On the justjohanna forum, in what category would you find a post entitled, "I grabbed Mabel..."?
- I bet you didn't know that many of the rubber stamp critters are named after people Johanna knows. For whom was Candace the bird named?
Ok, on to the bonus question.
I love math. All kinds of math except geometry, so this question is all about using math. Don't worry, you won't need a slide rule or a protractor (no geometry!), maybe just a calculator. You will have to go to the catalog to get the answer to this question. You will need to get the catalog numbers for each of these items in the equation and then do the math to get the final answer. Let's go!
three trees - harley left -c'est la vie + (yum x2) -strawberry coach + haunted tree = ___D.
Everyone who gets the bonus question correct will get something fun from me.
DEADLINE: Friday, May 16th at 9pm PST. I will determine the winner by the most correct answers and announce the winner here on my blog. I'll also announce all winners of the bonus question. Tell a friend - the more the merrier!
