Something New + a Little Giveaway!...

If you are a regular reader of TSB, you may have noticed a few changes. It's been over a year since I began The Stampin' Bean, and I thought it was about time to revitalize the old blog. I am not well-schooled in computer code, so quite a bit of this was me fooling around with HTML (not always a pretty thing!) A friend of mine (who is so modest she asks to remain anonymous) was kind enough to design my new banner and the sweet matching labels in my sidebar.

To celebrate my re-design, I'm giving away a set of SIX of my card creations to one lucky(?) commenter. I will draw a random winner from all comments posted by Thursday, August 26 at Noon EST. If you would like to win, please be sure to leave me your email address so that I can contact you! Which cards you may ask? Well, it will be a surprise, but you'll receive envelopes too so that you can send them out or send your own!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you back here soon.

I love the new look of your blog. Love the soft color and your banner is so sweet.

I don't understand computer code either, but would like to find the time to do something new to my blog.
