Happy Birthday The Craft's Meow!!!

Yep, today is the BIG day! One year ago today The Craft's Meow was born!! I can't believe it's been a whole year already!!! Thank you SO MUCH for all your kind wishes and words of encouragement. I am, quite simply, humbled by you all. Thank you thank you thank you!

I'm excited to announce that we're also advertising on Splitcoaststampers for the very first time starting today! Let me know if you spot our banner (which you can see above)! We extend a very warm welcome to those of you visiting us for the first time!

Only Available as Gift With $50 Purchase!

Our stamps are made in the USA from high quality non-yellowing photopolymer resins.

Before I send you on the celebratory hop, some final reminders:


We are offering two free digi images designed by our newest stamp illustrator Karen Baker if  you Like us on FacebookIf you're not on Facebook, then you can email me at and I'll email them to you. If you are on Facebook, we hope you'll share this opportunity with your friends!

When we reach 1500 likes, I'll randomly draw for someone to win a $25 gift certificate to spend in the TCM store and another $25 gift certificate to the person who referred the winner to our page! If we reach 1750 likes, the amount of the GC's increases to $50, and if we reach 2000 likes, the amount of the GC's goes to $100!!! The contest ends March 31st. Thank you for sharing!

Note: If you don't see the digis when you click on our Facebook page, you simply need to click on the Welcome link on the left sidebar of the page. That will take you to the right spot to download the digis!


Why will you want these digis? Well, besides the fact that they are GORGEOUS, you can use them to enter our challenges for a chance to win a TCM in-stock stamp set of your choice, except the Birthday Theme challenge for which the prize is a guest designer spot for TCM!!! All four challenges are linked on the sidebar for your convenience, and all prizes will be awarded by random draw so that everyone has an equal chance, including for the guest designer spot. 

Please note that you must use stamps by The Craft's Meow (or the free digis) in order to qualify for a prize, and there is no combining of challenges. A separate card/project must be uploaded for each challenge you chose to enter.


And there's still more ways to win a prize! How about all SIX of the newly released stamp sets (except for No Greater Love, which was released on March 2nd)? We will randomly draw for one person to win the six stamp sets from comments left on one of the design team/guest designer's blog which we'll keep a secret until after the draw. ;) You have until Friday, March 23rd at 9:00 pm Pacific to make the rounds and leave your comments for a chance to win!


The winner of Thanks Bee to Thee from the comments left on yesterday's post is:

Congratulations Meagan! Please email your mailing address to me at and I'll mail your prize to you right away!


Now off  you go to hop and shop! Enjoy! Thank you again for joining in TCM's First Birthday Celebration!!!
