Steph Herbert joins us from Sherbert Ink in Portland, Oregon.  Sherbert (aka sherbet) just happens to be one of our very favorite frozen delights and Steph serves it up fruity and delicious.  Her dream growing up was to be Anne of Green Gables, and although that didn’t exactly happen, she does have an E in her name and she did find her Gilbert Blythe (aka DH). They make a perfect pear.  With four kiddos and a part time job it’s amazing that she never runs out of juice.  Her two favorite hang-outs are the beach with the kids or her Stamping Studio with lots of Copic flavors.  Rasberry cordial anyone?  We think you’ll find her plum amazing!

You want suh-weet? You want Dill?  You’ll find it all at Mama Pickle’s.  Teresa is a military transplant from Iowa living in Virginia with a Mr. Pickle (when the Army lets her have him), a spicy hot Chihuahua mix and a zesty little pickle boy who just started in school by the name of…wait for it… Dillon!  Our stamping veteran lives on coffee and country music and usually has an ebook and an audio book going simultaneously.  With a clean surface and the right ingredients she’ll make something kosher every time.  The family is moving to Germany soon – guess we’ll be calling her the picklemeister!  Try a sampling for yourself @   http://mamapickle.blogspot.com/

It’s hard to believe that Lucianna Dilsaver has only been stamping for a year, but given her attention to detail and artistic vision it becomes a little more understandable.  With a husband, four children and a management position she sometimes dreams of swinging in a hammock, sipping some exotic pineapple concoction as cool tradewinds blow, while music plays in the background.  Of course she would be wearing shoes since she worries about things becoming embedded in her feet and multiplying, and she would also have to disinfect the hammock first because you never know where it might have been and no mosquitoes would be allowed.  Back in Oregon,  IRL there is always coffee perking, music playing and magic happening and then…it’s on to the next one.  Catch it quick @  http://dilsaverdesigns.blogspot.com/

 Our bronze torch is working it’s way to the south of Finland to the beautiful town of Heniola, which is situated between two lakes.  A waterway runs through the town keeping everything connected.  On sunny days you’ll find Sanna running to the lake with Nuusku and Napsu, her Golden Retrievers and soaking up the warmth.  If she’s not there, she can be found sipping a coke with her (almost) husband or whipping up some yummy pasta.  Our happy little red head may have pinkies that are skewed, but she can still weild her H20’s like an expert to create the most beautiful cards!   Click to the land of a thousand lakes and let SannaS be your guide @ http://korttipajasannas.blogspot.com/

 Jessica Davis follows her heart.  Married to her high school sweetheart, they’ve adopted three kids together – Boz, Nando and Garrett (two dogs and a cat in case you’re wondering;)  For work, Jessica is an activities director for Seniors. For play she travels and camps with the gang in her pretty new RV.  She also knits wonderful creations, reads on her new Kindle, picks fruit and preserves it, plays board games, attends stamping conventions and makes preparations for a new human baby niece on the way.  Her favorite food?  Her mom’s homemade mac and cheese.  Prepare to have your heart warmed @    http://thepaperparade.blogspot.com/

Don't forget to stop by their blogs to cheer them on!
Go Teams GO!
