Amber Ink is Turning ONE!!!

I'm SO excited about today's post! AmberInk is turning ONE - can you believe it?  I can't - I'm having a hard time believing it's been a whole year since I kicked off a run as an inaugural torchbearer for AmberInk.  Amber and Pam (they are BOTH the beauty and the brains behind this fabby operation) are such wonderful people, and I'm thrilled to see their awesomeness spread all over the place.  Wow how they've grown!

Here's the official word on this birthday bash of epic proportions:

Twelve short months ago
we made our big debut,
So now we'd like to commemorate
our 1st birthday with you!
This flash mob of torchbearers
always light our way.
Won't you please jog along
on our special day?
Leave your comments here and there
over the next 48
On Friday we'll announce the loot
Don't wait...let's CELEBRATE!
SUCH fun, right??? I'm honored to be kicking off this list of eye candy, and I promise things will only get better from here.  For this party, I made a super quick, CAS card in honor of our beach trip this week.  Everyone loves a party at the beach!  I inked up the Oh! What a Doll! Just a Little Wave Hello stamp set, and added a dress from the Oh! What a Doll! Day at the Beach coordinating set.  I stamped the sentiment straight on to my patterned paper at the bottom, because I'm a rebel like that.

Here's the whole party train.  If you get lost along the way, head back over to the AmberInk blog! (And keep reading down past this list, for a couple more tidbits):

Have fun hopping, and I hope you win some great prizes!  They'll announce the winners on Friday, over on the AmberInk blog. Don't miss it!

Don't forget about my weekly blog candy from Stampendous! Check the Stampendous Saturday post for deets.
