Happy Friday SCT friends! First let me say it was great to hear what you've been up to lately in your comments on yesterday's blog post. It's one of the reasons I love this blog and that feeling of connection with you! As the Publisher, I don't have the opportunity to meet all our readers so I appreciate that you check in here and share! And because you checked in today, I have a fabulous new company to share with you!  

Mendi Yoshikawa is a long time reader of SCT and someone we have published a few times as well. She does beautiful, creative work and you may remember seeing it in our Reader's Gallery. You can only imagine my delight when she sent me an email recently to share that she has started her own company, Sunny Studio! As a woman in business I love to see and support other women in business and am thrilled to see Mendi embark on this new adventure. When Mendi mentioned she would like to give away a few stamps sets, I told her who better to do that for than YOU, our awesome readers! Here's a peek at the giveaway:

and here is a few words from Mendi herself…

"As a loyal fan of Scrapbook & Cards Today, I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to share my new company with you.  My name is Mendi Yoshikawa and I'm the proud owner and designer behind Sunny Studio Stamps.  We specialize in creating playful photo polymer stamps and coordinating dies made only from the best materials right here in the USA.

Today we are giving away two of our most popular stamp sets, Bundled Up and Snow Kissed, to one lucky winner.  Just leave a comment telling me what themes you'd love to see in a future stamp set for your chance to win.

As a special thank you we are also offering all Scrapbook & Cards Today readers a special discount code for 20% off your orders at our online store using the code "SCTMagazine" (sale ends 11/23/15 at Midnight PST).  If by chance you win a set that you've already purchased, we will be happy to make a trade!"  ~  Mendi 

Thank you Mendi and from all of us here at SCT, we wish you the best of luck!

SCT friends I would love it if, after leaving your comment below, you could stop by the Sunny Studio facebook page and congratulate Mendi on her the launch of Sunny Studio. Be sure to also "like" Sunny Studio so you can stay up to date on all the new sets Mendi will be releasing. I remember those early days well and a warm "hello" from you would certainly make her day…or anyone's day for that matter!  It's all about sharing kindness right?

Oh and on the subject of sharing, don't forget our "12 days of holiday giving" is coming up starting December 7th! And yesterday, the grand prize was determined. Let's just say, it's INCREDIBLE! You'll need to clear a little space in your scrap space for this prize 😉

12_days_2015_logoI'm thrilled you joined us today. Remember that our limited edition kits, including our brand new Life in Pockets kit, will be on sale at 9:00 pm tonight HERE. A little "to me, from me, love me" gift perhaps? 

Have a wonderful weekend friends!
