Shelly's Images 2nd Birthday!

Hi Everyone!
(This announcement will remain at the top of the blog until our giveaway on Jan. 31st.  
Please scroll down for our current posting ... sharing techniques & challenges.)

Today is a very special day here at Shelly's Images.  We are celebrating our 2nd Birthday!!!  It doesn't seem possible, but two years ago today we opened Shelly's Images.com.  

So much has happened in those two years.  We have learned alot.  We made lots of great friends, and continue to make changes here at the blog to try to always inspire you. We now offer some video tutorials which we hope entertain and teach you or remind you of a technique that you might not have used for awhile.  And even the process of making our digi stamps has changed from the old fashioned pen and pencil with a lightbox to a very cool Wacom Cintiq.  

To celebrate we are giving away some special blog candy.  
How do you enter?

1. Place our 2nd Birthday Badge in the sidebar of your blog.  It isn't required that you make a blog post, but that would be awesome too.
2. Be sure that you are a follower of our blog.
3. Go to our store and sign up for our newsletter.  The form is on the left side of the page in the sidebar area.  And it is super fast.  Just fill in your name and your email address.  (While you are there you should enter for our January Free Image Giveaway.  Enter once each month for a chance to win a digi from our store.)
4. Leave us a little comment here.  We love hearing from you and we read every comment.  

On January 31st we will post the random winner of our blog candy. 
 We will also post one random entry to receive 6 images of their choice from the store. 
(Up to $18 in value)  
And for every 25 entries we will choose one more random entry to receive one image of their choice. 
 (Up to $3 in value)

Lots of chances to win! 
Happy Birthday Shelly's Images!  Here's to another fun year of inspiration and friends.
