Thank you so much for your wonderful comments! We truly appreciate the time you take to leave your words behind. Our readers are so important to us!! Your encouraging words keep us posting from week to week!! We absolutely love sharing our creativity with all of you!!.

So, lets pick our Blog Candy Winner!

We used a true random number generator to pick from the comments, and the result came up at comment # 14 !! (sorry, tried, tried and tried to get a pic of the widget on here with the result, but haven't been able to figure it out yet) Commenter Number 14 - Teresa says "Love, love,love your blog! I check it everyday. Beautiful projects! Thank you ladies for the inspiration". THANKS Teresa! Congrats to you. Please email us with your contact info and we'll get your stamp set off to you.

We both created a card to send off to you with your stamp set.

To create this card I dyed white Baker's Twine with Ink Refills. I used by Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack to create the holes, I threaded the dyed Baker's twine onto a needle, and sewed the cardstock by hand. I created the sky with Bashful Blue ink pad, sponge and a Scallop Circle Punch as a mask. The grass is free cut by hand with Paper Snips. The card is 5-1/4" x 5-1/4" so it fits perfectly into Stampin' Up! Medium Square Envelopes (107289).
