Winner WIW - Stickles!!! Random.org generated the number 2 when input range of 1 & 2... therefore, Paula, CONGRATS! You won 2 Cafe Images of your choice... and a Guest Designer position in October... I will be e-mailing you with more details :)

Here's hoping that your summer was a good one and for those of you with school age children (like us) that have headed back to school... yahoo!

We've hit a milestone here at The Character Cafe... a bit slower than some and maybe sooner than others, but either way we're thrilled to be approaching 5000 hits on our blog and even more on our website! Thank you too all our supporters and followers for sticking with us through our learning curves, and bumps and scratches.

To celebrate, we are offering some blog candy... yes, we all love candy don't we?! Since we do digital images and not physical stamps, we thought we'd give some of you out there who might be a bit leary of digis and those of you who may not have a great printer, or a working one at all, a chance to try our images and replenish your stash! We're giving away our biggest prize ever...

(Insert Picture here - Blogger trouble uploading.... will post as soon as possible)

24 Character Cafe digital images (digi stamps)
already printed on Wassau paper using a laser printer and heat set
as well as...
Various embellishments such as flowers, brads and eyelets

Printed in the same fashion, these images have been water coloured as well as Copic coloured and pencil crayoned with OMS so you should be good to go with no smearing :)

We want your feedback! We are looking to change things up at The Cafe and we want your help. We love doing what we do and we want to keep our customers/supporters happy and offer what you want so in order to do that, we have to pick your brain!

To be entered in our Candy draw, what we would LOVE for you to do is...
  • VOTE in our polls (2 of them) on the right telling us what you think. We did this so that you could be anonymous in your opinion, and keep it simple, but if you would like to expand or have something else to offer, please let us know via e-mail (charactercafe@gmail.com) or in your comment.
  • Add a post/link back to us on your blog telling everyone about our Candy.
  • Post a comment so that we know you've been here and we enter you in our draw! (make sure we can reach you if you win because we'll have to mail your goodies to you)

Simple right?! We think so :)

Now, on another note... we are so excited, we just can't wait to show you a sneak peek of a new design we've been working on! Why not let us know what you think about her in the meantime?
Don't forget, if you like what you see and want to be part of our new Design Team, our call is still open.... check out the details and send us your application. We're accepting applicants until Sept 20th!

The polls are open until Sept. 23rd and we'll do the Blog Candy draw and let you know the winner when we announce our new Design Team on Sept. 25th :) See you Friday for our final Feature Friday with our current Design Team...

Until then,
Happy Crafting
